Phew :o

Oli was down 4-5 0-40 down in the 5th and saved 4 MP's in a row.
He also played a fantastic cross-court chip past Guccione at 6-7 15-30 which was crucial.

Well Guccione had 0-40 with Rochus serving 4-5 in that 5th set and couldn't convert.

What a match, Rochus showed extreme heart for fighting , I loved it, being down 0-40 against such big server, 3 MPs and then another one.

But then he broke to Love, and ended match with an ace :worship: :worship:

I hope he will be 100% against Grosjean, another great match in sight

i was there :sad:

how sad and angry i'm with chris at the moment, he choked those points, i remember the 3rd one where he just sliced his backhand back and really didn't attack. What a wasted oppurnity. :o

I went to sleep when they stopped showing this match, and switched to Nadal. I knew this would be a good one, Rochus is probably one of the most fun players to watch, and always a nice experience.

Great win Oli :) hopefully next match you are shown on Eurosport for more than 4-5 games.

Ollie was the much superior player in everything but serve. He hardly made any UEs considering how long the match was, and he had to because he didnt have a big serve.
Guccione really choked when he had 4 mps though.

The better player won - I'm amazed by O.Rochus footwork and his backhand time and time again, though I should be used to it by now. ;)
But Gucc showed on those 4 MP's his lack of expierence.
