What a heartbreaking loss.
Žemlja had service stats of the god, not facing a single BP in first two sets, winning 80% of service points!!!
Cruising through his service games while Chela was fighting and grinding all the way on his...Žemlja a clearly better player till the tiebreaker.
In the final set Grega still fought like a dog, saved 6 out of 7 of break points...eventually a single break decided the match.
Total points won: Grega 101 - Chela 97
Not a real choke here (just got a bit tight in the tiebreak). A great performance and some mental toughness shown here.
It was a win-win situation for me, but of course I wanted Grega to win more...
What will his new ranking be???
