Hamburg SF: Mathieu def. Cuevas 4-6 6-3 7-5

:lol: What a roller coaster!

Cuevas jumps out to a 6-4 3-1 lead. Then Mathieu wins 8 games in a row to take the second set and get a 3-0 lead in the 3rd. He gets it up to 5-1 in the third before he gets ridiculously tight and Cuevas plays well again, and then it is 5-5. Then Mathieu breaks right back and has an easy service game to win the match.

I don't think Mathieu was quite aggressive enough though, but he will be the underdog in the final

Cuevas :retard: gets broken while he was serving 5-5 in the 3rd, after winning 4 games in a row, nice way to giving up.

Terrible.
The choke by Mathieu only for Cuevas to play a horrendous service game at 5-5. Yeah Mathieu is a an all time choker but you can't give him 3 tries at serving it out.

And of course this was all after Cuevas led by a set and a break...

Anyway, Kolya and Ferrer are doing cartwheels right now. PHM in the final to win a 500 :lol: :haha:

Quality week for Cuevas, finally inside the top 100, he is good enough to stay there. Cuevas had more break points, but couldn't get it done.

Cuevas is a joke. Mathieu is a cheater. They both suck.

Mathieu nearly choked, but keeps fighting well this week, good win given Cuevas recent scalps in this event.

Yeah,to choke from situations like that in 2009 is possible ooonly by Safin.

Expected result. Cuevas overperformed in several matches already, today pressure to get into his first ATP final was too much for him. He was choking away set and break lead, fought back in match and gave it away in very next game. Nice run though and at least he was trying his best. Wasnt good enough this time

I look for PHM to win the final. He's beaten Ferrer twice in two matches, one on clay. He's beaten Davydenko several times, once on clay in Davis Cup in Russia. Look for Ferrer and Davy to wear each other out in th SF, then PHM take the final.

I pray and hope to God that never happens again in his career.
