Didn't see all of it as Eurosport kept on switching to WTA :devil: - but basically Moya played poorly in the first 2 sets - seemed half asleep. Pavel looked like an easy straight sets winner, but then he tightened up and got really nervous, and Moya woke up towards the end of the 3rd set. Moya's forehand starting working well and when he pulled back to 2 sets all he looked like the likely winner. Even when Pavel broke to lead 4-1 in the 5th it still looked like Moya could pull out the win because Pavel was so nervous, - but in the end - credit to him - he kept himself together long enough to take the final set - helped by too many unforced erros from an out-of-sorts Moya. Hope that helped. Poor Carlos :sad:

very good focus from pavel in the end, made some great shots, especially the backhand crosscourt winner he hit after chasing down the drop shot.

not totaly surprising really
as Moya has been inconsistent at Slams & Pavel is more than a worthy opponent
as far as spainards are concerned when Moya reached the final here some years ago he looked like the odd Spanish that can play well at other surfaces than clay
JC Ferrero proved that & Nadal is & well in the future

At first set until 3-1 for Pavel Moya was out. then he start to pley better but Pavel played really agressive with good aproaches.

At second Carlos started well with a break up, then Pavel broke back and the went to TB. AT tie-break Carlos (like Chennai's final against Ljubicic) wasted a MiniBreak up.

Third set Carlos was really down at the beginning of set, but then he started to hold his solid serve and broke him at 10th game of 4th set.

4th set Carlos start to play more agressive with his serve and forehand. Pavel looked a bit tired.

At 5th Pavel came in and wasted some break point before broke him finally. Carlos reaction's equaled the score for 4all. Then Pavel held and the broke him for end the match.

Summary: Pavel played really well and surpised Carlos with a more agressive game. Carlos wake up at the end of 2nd set but he wasted his chances. Then Carlos could impose his agressive serve and forehand and Pavel culdn't do more. At last set Pavel woke up finally and take the final set after was up 4-1 and Carlos equaled.

It was a good match for watch, I think that was a difficult match for Carlos because after Sydney's WO he was 3 days without trainning. Anyway Carlos must make his chances. Congrats to Pavel for the win, he was patient and he waited and made his chances at 5th set.

:woohoo: Andrei. I'm SO proud today :)

I was at the match from start to finish. Awesome atmosphere, awesome result.

While people talk about Moya's unforced errors, Pavel actually had more until late in the match, he also had less winners but won the points that mattered. His magical backhand seemed to be working very well today and his net approaches were very successful. He got very frustrated during the match... belted a ball out of the court over into Margaret Court Arena :o, got a bit narky, but held his concentration rather than falling apart.

I wish he could have finished it in 3 sets (so I could have seen some other matches :p) but I'm glad I witnessed such a great match. I really had a rollercoaster ride of emotions throughout and tears of joy at the end!

Andrei :hug:

just when we thought Carlos was gonna comeback and take it
he turns into Careless Moya again :fiery:

had it under control then gifted freebies to Pavel
and tried to see if Pavel could beat him for once.......... he did :banghead:

now he can go and watch Flavia play,
and has plenty of "energy" for the time Flavia is in Melbourne :lol:

Andrei :hug:

:bigclap: :bigclap: from a fellow Pavel supporter! I really thought he was going to blow that lead, he looked in much worse physical and mental shape than Moya despite having the scoreline advantage, and when I went to bed Moya was up 4-2 in the fourth set. Now if only he can take advantage of this! I dream of Gaudio and Pavel squaring off for a place in the last 16...
