De Bakker choked it in the first set in an awful way.
He was up 4-1 with two serves to come : huge serve and an easy BH to play down the line (his BH was very performant in this first set), Troicki wasn't even playing anymore but Thiemo played too fast and missed it. It should have been 5-1, then it was 4-2.
Troicki gave him two SPs then after an easy miss with his FH. But at 6-4, Thiemo did an awful dropshot, although he didn't miss one during the whole set. I can't believe he lost this TB, he was the better player during it but chokes so hard.

After that, the 6-0 was expected.

'After losing the first set, I felt it wasn't to be today. I'd have to win two sets, I was never going to be able to do that.'

This is SPARTA! :worship:

Didn't see the match but looks like Troicki shape isn't the best atm...in Davis Cup he played without confidence.
