Zib missed a big chance to win a big match. He led *3-0 in the fourth set and was serving for the match at *6-5 in the fifth.

At one point in the match when Zib was going to 3-0 in the fourth Reynolds won almost no points, but then the momentum shifted with some very long deuce games. The fifth set was tight.

I wonder how many aces Reynolds served. Zib is known from his inability to return (Fish served him 35 aces in 3 sets; 28 aces served him... Hartfield :retard:)

For the second time today, the fifth set tiebreak prevents another mugs match from going on forever. :lol:

Reynolds served 33 aces, his personal record... expected against Zib in a 5-setter.

Actually a very entertaining match. Crowd was really behind Bobby, which was nice to see because in previous appearances he didn't seem to get much support. Lots of family and friends this time seemed to galvanize the rest of the crowd.

Can't really say Zib choked. Bobby checked out for about a set and a half after losing the 2nd set breaker. On the whole, he's the stronger player and he was able to get his head back together just in time. Reynolds played an outstanding game when Zib served for it at 6-5 - a lot of long points that Bobby grinded out and opened up the court to where he could hit a winner.

Good luck against Gonzo.

It's quite a shock that Zib a) won a set in qualies b) won a match in qualies c) qualified and d) even made it to a fifth-set tie-break against a strong hardcourt player.

Kudos to Zib :yeah:
