Vliegen was up 5-2 in the 5th and Benneteau came back and won 5 games in a row and I don't think there were any match points in this one.

This match was a chokefest from start to finish.

Should have lost in straights, Vliegen, saved yourself 3 hours or so - can't win from 2 sets up, break up in the fifth...dear oh dear...

Vliegen had *5-4 40-15 in the final set, lost 4 points in a row :-)

Guess who you find if you look up the word Chooker in a dictionary:o

2 sets up, Vliegen's internal voices: "Help! I might win!". Only takes 3 games in next two sets.

Wakes up, double mp... "Help! I might win!". Loses almost every remaining point, 4 games in a row and the match.

Allez Benny! Only saw the 5th set but :hatoff: to Benneteau for not giving up. Vliegen was firing forehands like crazy and Benny played a few smart points and just kept hanging in until Vliegen bashed/choked his way to defeat.

Kristof is probably the biggest choker no-one here talks about. Not surprised in the slightest he choked here vs. someone who is competitive and generally solid like Julien.

Benneteau's results haven't been too great of late, maybe this is the start of something better for him.
