Massu survives 7 MPs, def. Roitman 0-6 7-6(3) ret.

He lost the first set 0-6 and save 7 MPs on 3-5; 4-5 and 5-6, he next won the 2nd set tie break by 7-3 and Roitman walksover by an injury in his left leg. Amazing.

Re: Massu survives 7 MPs and wins with WO.

That was a hilarious 2nd set, and aided by the unwittingly dumb and classic comedy of the Geordie BF commentator.

Roitman played well, a real shame for him to end the match with an injury. Massu was poor for alot of the match, but just stayed alive long enough to get some luck. It looked like he would go on to win the match having finally got himself together though.

Re: Massu survives 7 MPs and wins with WO.

roitman lead 6-0 5-2

massu break in the 3-5* and saved 1 mp
in the *4-5 saved 4 more, including a 0-40
at *5-6 massu saved other 2 mp from 15-40

then in the TB at 5-2 massu lead... roitman got serious injuried and at the end of the TB has to retire

still... incredible fight massu, he saved for his own 6 of 7 mp.. only one was an ue of roitman

Re: Massu survives 7 MPs and wins with WO.

Shame for Roitman - although he looked to be losing that second set tiebreak anyway, he picked up a hamstring or groin injury when coming out of a slide for a ball, had an injury timeout, tried to continue, lost the tiebreak, and couldn't finish the match. When he served on the resumption it was all arm, no power on it at all, Massu would have picked him off.

To be fair, Massu saved the 7MPs before this injury happened and looked on his way back into the match anyway.

Bizarre all round, though.

Great comeback in the 2nd for Nico!!! Too bad the match ended on an injury to Roitman though-I hope recovers quickly.

I remember the Buenos Aires's 2002 Final, Massu def. Calleri 26 76(5) 62 surviving several match points from Calleri who was leading 62 51 40-15, Nico, you are a real GLADIATOR.

I'm gonna see him the next week in Davis Cup with Gonzo, Vamos Chile!

That's a joke by the way, before any Mirka lovers out there get too uptight.
