Buena Suerte a los hermanos Lappenti.

Well....some updates:

Giova lost his match ag. Hanescu by 6-7, 7-6, 6-7, 7-6, 4-6.

It was terrible, the match was pure aces and very short points, and the worst part was at the 5th set when Giova had 3 break points to lead 5-4, but then it was the opposite, Hanescu kept his serve and won at last....it sucks.

Nico's match was suspended at the 4th set due the light, it was already 18:00, then there was no more light to keep playing. He played the first 2 sets very consistently, but then lost the 3rd one, and now in the 4th, it finished with a break for the romanian.

Then things aren't going good. Anyway I hope we can win the tie.

VAMOS ECUADOR! ÑEQUE!

Nico can pull 5 setters! The problem is that he always leads 2-0 and then let's the other back in! It's typical Nico :rolleyes:

Vamos Ecuador :mad:

booo hoo. I must have misread the score. I thought the Romanian's broke to win the fifth set.

But, they won anyway, and now Nico is going to be SO tired tomorrow.

GO Gio!!!!!!!! GO Nico!!!!!!!

It's so pathetic....I can't say anything else...sorry, I'm just pretty disappointed, because they got so many great chances to get this match over many hours before...

I hope they can get through this tie tomorrow, although yes, both will be very tired....

Shit....I thought it wasn't gonna be so damn complicated....

By the way, I HAVE to say that I've just been INCREDIBLY impressed by Nico's performance! I didn't give him a chance in that fourth set tie-break. After the matches he's been through the last two days! I was very impressed! If only he could play like that more consistently!

Does anyone knows if there was a previous DC tie of 25 sets?

By the # of games played (281), this tie is the 2nd longest in DC history.
It lasted 21 hours and 27 minutes playing time. I wonder where does that rank in DC record book...
