Umpire was crap at two important points. Sergei got deconcentrated, but he was too stressed overall. Started to play well at 2-6 in the tie-break, but it was too late. Saved 3 mps, still it wasn't enough.
Haven't talked to him after the match, only briefly before. I guess he's upset now
He goes to Croatia futures now. Overall I would love him to play this level until Katowice 15K futures where I may run a press office myself
Tomorrow he hits 20. Happy birthday boy.
