What a dramatic match. Quality started to dip in the second set but picked up late in the third.
Mathieu led 6-4 3-1 but choked as usual.
Hernych then served for the match at 6-4 4-6 5-4 and 6-4 4-6 6-5 but got a little tight. He also had MP at 6-5 in the TB, but Mathieu saved it with aggressive play.
