schwank was up a break in every set, serving for the match at *5-4 in the second too :o

some of these top 100 players really need to go back to challengers.

I think it's more like a failure to close out from Edu which led to Kubot believing he could win this. Edu served for the match in both the second and third, and failed. Dominated on serve throughout parts of the match, but couldn't execute when ahead. Such a huge missed opportunity for a QF for Edu, and his ranking will continue to slip in a negative direction. Just hasn't proven capable of winning ATP matches.

OMG, what a win for Q-bot :bigclap: Schwank led 5:3 in both losing sets - Q-bot saved a match point on the main level for the first time, and for the first time won deciding tie-break set (1-4 record now) :yeah:

Schwank hasn't played a Challenger in over a year but has gone 15-30 since his last Challenger (excluding tow ATP qualifying wins).
