Petzschner wins dramatic matches against compatriots. Last year against Zverev at Wimbledon, this time against Becker from match point down in the tie-break.

Petzschner didn't break Becker once.

Becker must be getting a bit fed up - last time they played Petzschner won 2-6 3-6 6-4 6-4 6-1.

Wow. What a battle. Philipp after losing first set to one manage to hold on in the second and then in the decider send Becker packing. 8-6 in 3rd set tie-break.

Quite good from Petzschner when you look at the stats from that third set. Becker won 92% of his first serve points. With the decent 65% of 1st serve in (in the 3rd) it was a huge threat I guess. Philipp still manage to book his place in the QF.

Very nice! I thought people said he was a choker, but here he showed no signs of it. Very good fight and a good win. He stays dangerous indoors.

Becker's mis-firing serve really does handicap him for tiebreaks. :o

Good win. :yeah: But it's a disgrace that the attractive QF against Lacko is not on center court!
