How the hell do you lose 4 points in a row in a 3rd set tiebreaker after hitting a second serve ace to get it to 5-3?

Good job Gulbis, he saved MPs too right?

I saw on the scoreboard Melzer had 5:4* (40-15) in the third set and second serve! Impressive win by Gulbis, especially that Melzer is one of the best players in the final set tie-breaks

Melzer led also earlier 3:2 (40-15) in the third.

How many matchpoints wasted, Jürgen? But, I like Gulbis, too. I only moan about about the non-coverage.

Amazing fight from Ernests! Glad to see he has it in him.

BTW - Gulbis had a set point in the 1st TB so this really should have been over in 2.

So proud of him!
