Games on serve so far -- looks like a TB coming 6-5 Guccione

Very tight first set!

Australian_Matt

Yup, tiebreak -- Guccione had won 5 out of 5 this tournament, Tursunov won his only TB against Santoro in the semi

Australian_Matt

Tursunov with the mini-break, up 3-2 in the TB...

Australian_Matt
01-12-2008, 09:27 AM
And Tursunov holds both, up 5-2 - Guccione must hold these two points obviously

Australian_Matt
01-12-2008, 09:28 AM
and he doesn't - Tursunov serves at 6-3 in he TB with 3 set pts.

Australian_Matt

Tursunov wins 1st set 7-6 (7-3)

Guccione will have to do more damage to Tursunov's serve to get back into the game

C'mon Chris.

Both players hold to 15, and its 1-1 in the 2nd set

Australian_Matt

Again, both players hold to 15 and its 2-2. No inroads on serve from either end of the court here. Both players have won less than 20% of receiving points in the whole match, but Tursunov crucially won 2 in the tiebreak.

Australian_Matt

Guccione holds to love and its 4-4. That 21 consecutive games where the server has held. yawn

Australian_Matt
01-12-2008, 09:58 AM
When he's getting any racquet onto it, Guccione's return of serve is often far too short, setting up Tursunov for easy winners. Dima is playing very confidently...

Australian_Matt
01-12-2008, 09:59 AM
Guccione serving to stay in the final btw, at 4-5

Australian_Matt
01-12-2008, 10:12 AM
And two great return of serve in the TB does it for Tursunov!
7-6 7-6

Australian_Matt

No break points in the match and Guccione won more points in the 12 normal games, but Tursunov played far better under pressure.
