I knew he was totally gonna lose the tie-break even when Berdbrain was up 5-2. I also knew that Nole would only need one match point to clinch it.
Yeah, wasn't much of a surprise...
As for Berd choking the TB (and yes he did, in trademark glorious manner
), I don't think the outcome of the match would have been much different if he'd had pulled out that 2nd set - he most probably have folded in the 3rd anyways.
