New Haven SF: Istomin def Troicki 7-6(10), 3-6, 6-2

What a legend, this Istomin

Mental giant. Saves 4 match points yesterday against Gabashvili and saved at least three set points in the first set TB today. Was broken in the first set at 4-all and then broke back as Troicki was serving for the set. Was broken early on in the third set, fought off more break points and broke Troicki (from 30-0 to 30-40) and needed only that one match point to win.

Good job, Denis. Really showing his mental fortitude. Hopefully he takes the title, he deserves it. His improvement this season is great to watch.

Wow Counting qualifying matches, Istomin has won last 10 tie-breaks (including 4 in the final set). Among the series he's won twice 12-10, once 11-9 and once 10-8.

Stakhovsky's tie-break record is pretty impressive too, will be interesting if they play a TB
