Mike!!!!

He blew a 4-1 lead in the 3rd set and was down a break a couple times in the 4th, but great fight! That tiebreaker was intense, Ebden played well when he was down MP

Russell saved 2 SPs on Ebden's serve in the 4th set, and another on his own. Pressure pit tie break

Mike leading 63 62 41 and then really lost the plot for a while, backed off and allowed Ebden to dictate. Somehow ground out the tiebreak.

Nice fight Mike - not pretty, but got the win.
4th set was very entertaining.
