Wasn't Stakhovsky far ahead in the TB too? :confused:

I saw Stakovsky up 5-0 in the second set breaker and lost that but good effort to bounce back! Not the first time he's won a grand slam match after facing match points.

Stakhovsky makes his GS matches much too difficult.. He seems so relaxed and collected in best of 3 set matches especially when considering he is a perfect 7-0 in ATP finals (singles and doubles combined), then when he plays at the slams, he makes thing way too complicated both mentally and tennis wise.. Really annoying to watch him at the slams, because he has the potential to be a occasional QF and maybe even SF player at the slams.

Congrats to both! What a fight!
