Re: 2012 Live Commentary

Fog from *6-1 to *4-6, but closes it out 4-7. Was expecting a serious fuck up from Fognini then.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

This Zemlja match is like a WTA match.

He held for 1-0* and they've just traded four breaks.

Two utter mugs.

Cipolla is such a pusher. It's annoying. Awful match

Can't work out what the hell Zemlja is trying to do tactically. It's horrendous.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

Fairly sure that The Fog is one of the best overhead hitters on tour, barely see him miss one. PMK is probably declining slightly in that regard.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

No surprise to see one of the worst sets of tennis go to a tie-break. Cipolla to take it 7-4.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

Great point by Zemlja to take the set
Stunning let-cord winner.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

LOL at that tie-breaker.

It went as follows, with Zemlja serving first:

1-0*, 1-4*, *3-4, 4-5*, 7-5.
