In the Galvani-Mayer match today, the Italian led 5-1 and serving in the third set, then proceeded to lose five games in a row to allow Mayer to serve for the set at 6-5; and Mayer promptly displayed an equal sense of philanthropy, got broken and lost the tiebreak. Impressive that he was able to come back and win the fourth set afterwards, but he still ended up losing 7-5 in the fifth.

Those are *the* worst 5-set matches, and the most agonizing to watch

There is a proverb to describe such situations, "the winner is the one who made the next to last mistake".

Horrible time for Mayer :banghead: ...another early loss and this continues since last season already, I hoped he would get better again, but looks like it takes more time or is likely not going to happen at all.

It's unfortunate. :sad:

Flo really doesn't have much of a weapon. His game's quirkiness is probably his biggest one, and it really doesn't work that often anymore.

Galvani's crap was better than Mayer's crap.

It's a shame how Mayer has been unable to progress in the game as much as his 2004 season suggested. I remember the 6-2 set he grabbed against Agassi at the USO '04, which was one of the most spectacular I have ever seen.

I wonder if this match can possibly rival the chokefest that was Kiefer v. Safin at the USO '02, but it seems to have come close.
