I was there for the whole match, sitting freezing in the wind for nothing
Dominik started off really well, he was dominating all the points and hitting winners like he did against Gaudio, there was nothing Seb could do. Then at 4-2 Dom just completely went off the boil and made so many errors to lose the next 7 or so games in a row! Grosjean was playing better too, running along the baseline retrieving every ball and giving lots of different spins and slices. After leading 4-2 in the 2nd it was just a horrible performance by Dominik. Maybe it was due to the cold breeze, normally he likes playing in the day in warm still conditions. And an annoying helicopter kept flying overhead during his serve.
I swear it was the Frenchies. They all gradually started coming in during the match and Seb kept getting better. First Guy Forget was there, then Arnaud Clement came in the 2nd set. Then Llodra, Escude and Bartoli all came in and the whole gang was there cheering Seb! I must say they all looked very nice, they were dressed smartly like they were going out and not in tennis clothes.
Hrbaty improved a bit in the 4th set but it wasnt enough. On match point he was dominating it and hitting the ball from corner to corner, then had an easy smash and didnt do enough with it, allowing Seb to get it back and Dominik stuffed up the easy volley
There was a fair amount of support for Dommy, with all the usual fans who'd been at his other matches turning up, but as time went on the whole place seemed to be cheering Seb more.
