Roland Garros R1: [31] Anderson def. Machado 7-6(2) 6-7(6) 4-6 6-1 11-9

Kevin saved four MPs in three separate games and was *2-5 down in the final set.
---------------------------------------

Huge shots from Kevin in the resumption of the match, big serves. Huge forehand return to break to serve for it, and great defense from Anderson at 30 all in the final game, where he turned the point around and won it after scrambling the entire point. Dropshot winner to end the match for Anderson.

Rui

You better take this tomorrow, otherwise it will go down as arguably the biggest choke/missed chance of your career, which is saying a lot really.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Machado is an unbelievable choker...why is he so scared to win? This match should already be over...Good for Anderson for hanging in and realizing Machado would gag on his own disgusting chokes...How many MP's did Machado waste anyways? The screaming lambs in his head tonight will be unreal...Dr. Lecter will have to analyze Machado after this is all said and done...lmao

Bit embarrassing for Kevin to even be in this position. He served at 5-4 in the second set tie-break, he should have had this wrapped up already. Anyway, go Kevin!

Rui served to close the first and fifth sets and had 4 MPs in three different games.

If anything, Anderson is fortunate to be in this situation. Rui is the only one who had chances to have this match sewn up by now, lots of chances.

Wow.

These guys wont sleep well tonight, especialy Machado. He might have nightmares of wasting those match points he had.

So tommorrow they will come back and might play only 2 games. I hate these suspended matches.

If Kevin had won the two points on his serve from 5-4 in the second set tie-break, he would have been up two sets to love and likely would have won the match by now, considering he won the fourth set too. That was the point I was trying to make. Instead he didn't win those two points and is now battling for survival. If he wants to be Top 20 as he aspires to be, then he needs to win the points that matter more consistently. I am thrilled that he saved the match points, but don't think he should have been in this position in the first place.

Hopefully I articulated my PoV a bit clearer now

Trust Frenchies not to have lighting on their stadiums. The Euro economic crisis isn't THAT bad is it?
