So true, I only watched the third set and could see that he was fighting for every point. Almost all games went to deuce and he stepped up at the most important ones (even if he screwed some of them) and deservedly won.
I really liked the way he played - his dropshots and volleys were amazing! Congrats, Cristophe! I hope he defeats Chela.
