:sad: :sad: A double fault Tommy?! :sad: So close.

They played a great 3rd set, congrats Marat :)

I was gonna start a Tommy cheering thread before this match but judging from this thread I think I would be the only one in it :lol:

ONe of the only ones.

I'm still :rolleyes: that he double faulted out of the match. My God, that is the last time I care about a Robredo result.

The stats really do not do justice for Tommy, he had the better 1st serve%, won more points, had a better returning % and yet he still lost... :rolleyes:

Sorry Rebecca, I forgot you. I will start a thread for Monte Carlo and I better see you in it! :p

There was something inevitable about the double fault. I just knew it was gonna happen when he missed the first serve. The conditions were terrible and Tommy was getting a bit annoyed with things at the beginning of the tiebreak and the double fault was not surprising.
