In set 2 Berankis had 5*-4 40-30 and missed 5 set points to get broken on the first BP :lol:. In the tiebreak at 6-6, Nishikori DFs like a mug and hands Berankis a set point. Berankis then hits an ugly net winner to take the set :haha:

In the decider, Berankis had chances to break Nishikori but failed to convert. Berankis had an important game at 1*-1 which lasted about 10 minutes. It was amazing what I was seeing. Berankis refused to win the game. He played well up till game-point and then hits a DF or wild error. Once he made an error twice, he lost serve.

All in all, the match was a mugathon. The result was decided by who was worse. Nishikori played far from his best and will need to improve for next round.

Glad Kei got through that. His first match back on Hard Court was never going to be pretty!

Wow that's late. No wonder they weren't playing to the best of their abilities (judging by Slade's post).

I wish Berankis had won though :awww:
