Haas def. Mirnyi 6-7(2) 7-6(3) 6-2
Mirnyi already served for the match in the 2nd set at 5-4.
Haas never had a chance on Miryni's serve the whole 2nd set until this deciding service game of Max.
It was a very unexpected turnaround at this time! Haas broke back and finally took the 2nd set in a tiebreak.
From then on, Haas never looked back, broke Mirnyi early in the third set and was able to hold the following "key game" that featured a few deuces.
My confidence in Tommy was really at a deep low when I saw how the 2nd set was going just too quickly everything for Mirnyi's favour... very surprising win for me, bad and disappointing loss for the Max fans as he had the chance to serve it out already!
There was no TV coverage of this tournament for me... anybody got it and can give a small report what happened at this turnaround? Was Tommy crap before? Was Miryni nervous when serving for the match? Any things would be appreciated if somebody was courtside at the match or if it was on TV somewhere...
BTW... Haas vs Mirnyi H2H: Haas leads 7-0
