Montanes/Hidalgo def. Aspelin/Cermak 7-6, 1-6, [23-21] !
 
:banana: A new "champions tie-break" record - Estoril, 1st round doubles:
Montanes/Ramirez-Hidalgo def. Aspelin/Cermak 7-6(2), 1-6, [23-21] after saving 5 match points :banana:

The fragmentary progress of the champions tie-break:
4:8, 8:9, 9:10, 10:11, 12:11, 12:13, 14:13, 15:14, 16:15, 17:16, 18:17, 19:18, 20:19, 20:21, 23:21 :)

The previous record in "champions tie-break":
A.Clement/N.Escude - K.Braasch/A.Olhovskiy 7-5, 6-7, [18-16] (Marseille 2002)
The longest tie-break in doubles: 26-24 (Wimbledon 1985)

I thought of you Voo with this result, you'd be like an alcoholic with a free pass at a brewery with this score.

The singles players triumphed over the doubles specialists. Huge breaker, good to see.

They would kick Federerīs ass ig they would be in his half of the draw.
This is absolutely great. They are unbeatable. They even win when it is that close.

A very good win, had plenty of opportunities to do it sooner though :D The champions TB probably took the same amount of time as the 6-1 second set!

An example of contradictory infos:

- I was following a scoreboard and I saw 5 Mp's for Aspelin/Cermak but...

The official Estoril website writes:

"Montanes/Ramirez Hidalgo d [2] Aspelin/Cermak 76(2) 16 23-21 (Match TB) - Saved 6 M.P."
and in the other place -
"Montanes and Hidalgo saved eight match points in the Match Tie-break"

So, how many: 5, 6 or 8? :D

IMO they had saved 5 Mp's (1 M.P. on return - 9:10) and wasted 8 MP's before finally won on the 9th match point :wavey:
