Klizan served for the match at *5-4 in the third. Bellucci had a *5-2 lead in the third set tiebreaker, lost four straight points and served an ace down MP at *5-6. Really, the Brazilian willed himself to victory, with help from the crowd. Ugly tennis, but both guys fought very hard until the end.

Saved a match point at *5-6 in the TB. :)

Gotta love Bellucci's reaction though, was as if he made a slam SF or something. :lol:

It's really dissatisfying seeing Bellucci have any kind of success here. He just doesn't deserve to be involved in this event. Hope he gets knocked out in the semis. Hard luck Klizko, thought he played a decent match considering those comments he made yesterday after the Reynolds match. Needs a good run in Helsinki to get back in the mix for top 100.

kinda lucky really seeing how he played like a complete mug on the big points.
