standard epic Mahut loss, missing 3MPs in the process ;)

Happy for Delic - the crowd, limited as they were, were a joke though - cheering Mahut's DFs, and deathly silence following his aces. :p

Amazing point at 8-8 in tb. Although it was a horrific error at net by Mahut :lol:

Typical choking experience for Mahut, led 6:4 in the TB and played very conservative 2nd serve - Delic made a decent backhand return to force a volley error. Another two match points on serve (5:6 & 7:8) Delic saved with stylish s & v points.

At 8:8 Mahut played two weak volleys, the second one beyond pathetic.

It's good to see Mahut consistently in finals and semi-finals now. Good going, Nico!

I forgot about Delic :lol:
Has he just started his comeback?
I haven't seen him anywhere for ages...

Mahut didn't choke.

Yes he did. He screwed up the lead in the tb in spectacular fashion for a start, and the miss at 8-8 was a ridiculous error.

Mahut chokes........ alot.

This is great for Karol. Long emotional match, will certainly take a lot of energy away, regardless of who won this. Take the title Karol!

Congrats to Amer, so happy to see him doing well here :)

Mahut didn't choke.

Choke
Has little or nothing to do with anticipated results. It's not limited to sports or competition. You can choke on an assignment for work, choke in an attempt to seduce a crush of yours. Jordan missing a free throw. You can choke anywhere, anytime.
Choking is when you had control, and failed to execute.

Mahut's used to choke. And here he had MPs, he literally wasted them.. plus, he won 2nd set with a fuckin' 6-1..

Yes, let's all cheer for Karol! If he wins this he's got only a Wimbledon R2 to defend until October! Top 100 here we come :drive:

Nice to see Amer winning. Not sure he will make it back to other than challengers but there is always hope. He is getting a bit too old now and the body just isn't the same.
