But he won it 9-7 after saving a BP. Ouf!
3rd set he went up 3-0 then 4-1 and on to a winner.
He increased his % of serves and returns through his 3 sets which finally gave him the match. Volleys??? Scoreboard doesn't show it.
This could have been so good to watch and share his satisfaction.
Next match will be streamed and Nole, being on another level, might bring us another feeling; wish I am mistaking.
Nole doesn't endure high temperature, but so do Ernests...no hope there.
So proud for the moment because when he loses early, I'm always afraid he would quit tennis by disgust.
I don't know if I should be positive about what happened in the third set or not because physically, Lu cannot be compared to Ernests, but I'll take the positive side in the next match with Nole
Good luck Ernests
and I hope they will schedule the match at the time that I can watch
