Congrats doubles mental giants :yeah:

10-0 in super tie-breaks separated by two points this year - absolutely amazing record :worship:

They won five times 10-8, three times 11-9, once 12-10 and today 16-14 :)

Mirnyi and Ram had match points on return at 9:8, 11:10 & 13:12 - each time Mirnyi made an error - firstly his backhand passing-shot landed on the netcord, then made two volley errors - should have finished the first one (at 11:10 - Q-bot had to bow to avoid hitting the ball).

Never in doubt by the lucky giants

I hate Marach and his annoying shouts after an opponent's error

IMO it's a phenomen they have been doing so well this season on the main tour because Marach is an awkward doubles player with barely decent volley (but he's got great reflex). I agree with a commentator who said two days ago that the biggest strength of this duo was their arhythmic play. They have just adjusted perfectly the game plan to abilities.

They need a win of pair Dlouhy/Paes against Mirnyi/Ram. If Mirnyi/Ram win in straight sets, Kubot/Marach will have to win at least a set against the Bryans to advance to the semis.
