Bjorkman was leading in the tie-break 4:0, 5:1 & 6:4... He has never been good at long tie-breaks.

Jonas certainly had his chances in the 1st set, but well done to the Dude for fighting back to take it and then cruising home.

Just got back from the DC, Great match for Dudi, he was really clicking after the first set, I had really nice seats this time.

But the main theme of this tie should be "How to turn 3500 Israelis impotent".

Honestly, as a result of the critisism we got after the Fed cup (booing, cheering between 1 and 2 serve, etc), everyone were so docile, the cheering wasn't half as good as, lets say - the cheering in the tie vs. Chili. Dudi didn't really need all that much push, Harel did, though.

1:1. As expected.

It is all up to Dudi to deliver. Assuming the duo can keep it up;) :p Just trying to keep the theme going here.

Great effort from the Dude - he was a break behind 3 times in that first set and trailed 0-4 and 1-5 - Jonas really let him off the hook and paid for it. After that Sela just kept finding ways to draw the error from Bjorkman.

Kind of unexpected for me.
