Re: Metz: Melzer d. Safin 46 62 76(5)
I had hoped that Melzer'd totally choke after being 5-2 up, and he promptly gave up two of his service points. Then Safin played, and whoosh, the mini-choke was countered by another mini-choke, and the last of the series of explosions that comprises a Safin match went off.
I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.
