Rochus had 2 BP's at 4-4, and then as we have seen many times in tennis matches, you don't take crucial BP's, and you soon find yourself having to face them. This time it was MP's, and Rochus sprayed a forehand.

Good match from both of them, just a shame that it didn't go 50-48 in the 5th so that Nalbandian could have a less than fresh opponent.

i was at this match, it was really enjoyable, both players were going toe-to-toe with each other. Grosjean looked to have that last set at 4-2 but then rochus came back fighting had had 2 BP's at 4-4. Losing those 2 BP's really did hurt rochus and loss this next serviece game.

It was a great match, lots of long rallies and both seemed to be able to easily turn points around, so it was unpredictable. Seb was the better player and deserved to win, although Ollie could easily have won had he taken one of his break points at 4-4.
At the end the Belgian fans sang Happy Birthday to Ollie, so that was nice :D

The french crowd uses to sing HB to seb every year in Roland Garros, it's always nice. :)

If you're interested, you can watch this match completey on www.sporza.be. Click "tennis" on the left and then the headline Olivier Rochus: "Zo verliezen vind ik heel hard". Then you see "wedstrijdverslag" which means "match report", "laatste game" wich means "last game" and underneath you have links to watch each set completely. You'll have to take the dutch commentary with it, but don't worry. These sporza commentators suck.
