now i'm relieved, this could've been almost a career changing defeat for Andreas with the way things were going the first two sets. as usual, he was extremely nervous for the first hour of play, lots of silly mistakes and playing very 'tied up', without being able to relax and let his groundstrokes flow.
fitness did it in the end too and that's big for his expectations on these type of matches, when his game isn't clicking he has the ability to fight through some difficult stages and ultimately outlast these type of opponents.
not impressed by his performance, but happy he got the job done. Huge win, like every must-win one.
