Marsel was up 5-3 in the first, then he choked. In first two set Marsel was mediocre. After third, he played really unbelieable. Too many aces, winners, great shots, volleys.. Really really good performance and amazing comeback.

Congrats :worship:

given his tendancy to choke and the break downs he has had in the past i am really impressed with this win.
It doesnt even matter who he beat its that he came back and won

Marcos had two break points in the 3rd to take complete control of the match :sad::rolleyes:

I knew as soon as he lost those he wouldn't win this match. I really, really, really thought he would win this match, so I'm sad and disappointed.

With that said, you have to give credit for Marsel for once again showing he knows how to pick up his level when his back is against the wall. He has a lot of heart.

honestly though the number of matches where players come back from 0-2 down in sets is suprising recently.

There were like 5 matches at the french where someone came back from 2 sets down to win in 5 and there have been 3 already today!

Marsel is the type who plays with his heart on his sleeve. He can fight back and then choke in the same match. That's also part of why he is more popular than a lot of guys ranked around where he is. I respect him, I don't really like him that much, but I respect his heart and never-say-die attitude.

Happy to see Marsel in 2R, but he needed two sets too many.

Daniel either got tired or was otherwise troubled in the third. Ilhan also served very well, 31 aces, wow. He got a ton of points off of Daniel's second serve as well.
Did Daniel get a warning at some point in the third? He got aced 3 times in a row and I think right after I heard the umpire give him a warning. Is it possible to give warnings for lack of effort? Turkish commentators didn't say anything about it. I might have misinterpreted.
Good win for Marsel! I hope he keeps it up, he got a pretty decent draw for a qualifier.
