Jérémy wasted a break in the first set. He was serving for the set and I think he had at least 1 SP as well. Completely collapsed after being broken back. Then actually managed to recoup a break in the third set, but when serving to force a tie-break collapsed once more.

The right player absolutely won. Tipsarevic was solid - definitely nothing special - but Jérémy dictated his own demise.

The crowd could have been a bit louder, eh? :unsure:

Too bad Jérémy wasted that set point at 5-3 first set. Once Tipsy had saved it, I knew it was over. Jérémy's forehand can be tremendous, but he has no backhand and that is such a weak shot that it almost looks ridiculous when he misses it by miles.
Well done Janko, though. He could go far this year.
