Exactly! From what I saw Kiwi didn't take his chances. I saw once 0-40, and at least one more time 0-30. And there was a chance for Kiefer to break Johansson in almost every service game of the 2nd set because he had a lot of single break point opportunities as well
At least he tried until the end and worked for his chances, but couldn't convert them.
This final losing streak is a big handicap now
I would go as far as calling it a "jinx" to win his 7th career title. And next time please no more Grillotti on the chair, just jinxes it more
