First 2-0 sets down comeback in the tournament.

Jurgen isn't 100% so this was always going to be a great opportunity for Michi. Michi was up a break in the first set, so he could have won easier; nine breaks of serve for Berrer and 72 UEs for Melzer, 13 double faults.

Michi hasn't won 4 matches in a row on clay for a long time and Melzer well he has the wonderful record of losing from 2 sets 0 up 8 times now.

Great job Berrer. Good comeback. Next up against Devilder, so he definitely has a good chance at another R3 at Roland Garros. :D

I thought that berrer was too heavy to last 5 sets.
Amazing win from 2sets down :eek:
Was melzer injured in the 3rd?

Great come back, Berrer:worship:
Hopefully Melzer didn't have any problems:sad: I also read he was hip injury.

Fucking awful since Memphis, he's become really pathetic. He can't stay healthy for 2 weeks anymore.
Probably time to retire from singles play and focus on dubs

Melzer isn't 100%, there is speculation he took a MTO after the third set. Look at his double fault number, much higher than usual, he's not a double faulter. He was injured coming into this event, and lost R1 as expected.

Like i said it immediately . Memphis was one of the biggest flukes of the season. one of those unexplainable weeks

I'm just saying, he can't really do it anymore, and it's probably hurting his doubles career.
I'd like him to stick around a while longer, but if I were him I think I'd quit singles if he can't get a few good wins in next few months

Agreed. Melzer doesn't often do many double faults and he has good serve.
Hopefully nothing serious.

Berrer is a fighter. RG suits his attitude. Not a good player to draw for Melzer who seems low on confidence...for singles at least

oh lord... Melzer is a great returner and played amazing tennis in Memphis. today he was probably injuried, no need for these silly comments.

Melzer needs rest up and then start over.

Good fight from Berrer tho.

Funny how Melzer getting to the Top 10 made me forget how much of a choker he'd been before. I get that this wasn't about choking as much as fitness but it's still a really bad record.

Another loss from 2-0 for Mel(t)zer :spit:

Happy for the Beer. :yeah:

Happy for Berrer, worked his way through qualifying and now clinches this nice win over a decent, albeit overrated (IMO) player in Melzer. I hope he can take advantage of the draw and kick Devilder out.

Melzer had to have been injured...otherwise it would be humiliating for him to lose on clay to Berrer :lol: I mean, it's Berrer we're talking about here...

I suppose sadly, that after the 1st 2 tough set's, Melzer's hip kind of gave up on him.:(
