- He is only one win in deciding set tie-break from equal the Moya's record (all levels)
- Served 2nd time 41 aces in a three set match - previoulsy against Thomann (Binghamton 2003 - Challenger) - there were also 3 tie-breaks
- He has won in ATP-level all-tie-break-match for the 5th time (earlier against Moodie, Corretja, Rusedski & Korolev)

No breaks although Ivo had opportunities in Lee's last two service games in the 2nd set and Ivo dug it out from down break point (basically MPs) several times late in the 3rd set, including one time from 15-40. Heading in to 3rd TB I was pretty sure Ivo would lose because he was really struggling to hold serve in the 3rd. Some really gutsy play out of both of them with lots of match points saved by Lee and a couple by Ivo at 4-6 in 3rd set TB. The MPs that Ivo didn't convert were all on Lee's serve. Classic match. Three TBs and they all went extra points. Definitely worth missing a little sleep for this match.

I'd change. 41 is too much I think.
