no AJ thread? This match was tight in the end, must have been a good one to see. Two real grinders of the game

waiting for Voo or Statracket to post Igor's final set breaker record, surely one of the worst in tennis history

AJ is here only to start match threads when Nadal loses, NID, he's such a hata. :shrug:
Igor though :sad: :(

Andreas :woohoo: :rocker2: :crazy:
What a match, final set tiebreak to end it. Seppi's tiebreak record is also bad (slighty better this season) so this is quite an event. :D

First set: Seppi sucks, gets broken two times.
Second set: Seppi breaks Igor and saves 3 break points.
Third set: break each, Seppi edges Igor by winning few more return points.

Stakhovski or qualifier next! A quarterfinal with Davidenko would be great.
:cheerleader: :cheerleader:

andreev has a fetish for losing 3rd set heartbreakers.

I actually think Seppi may have a worse tiebreak record than Andreev but managed to win this one.

ok, a quick count I have him 11-23 for his career (not including world team cup and dead dc rubber)

That's very poor. My 27th of August 2011 article (http://thebigtip.com.au/tennis/tiebreaker-tension-us-open?page=0,1) shows the final set tiebreaker record of the then top 40. These players have (had) a lower percentage than Andreev but have played less.

Cilic 0-3
Bellucci 2-6
Tipsarevic 3-8
Verdasco 6-15

Blake's 8-16 record is also pretty bad, and two of those losses came in huge matches. At the US Open, Blake lost in 5th set tiebreakers to Andre Agassi in the 2005 quarter-finals and Tommy Haas in the 2007 4th round.

Seppi can't serve out sets or matches and Andreev has a poor final set TB, well someone had to win.

Mug match, enough said. I still don't see what a hottie like Kirilenko is doing with a clown like Andreev :o
