I had a small hope because Melzer was not happy at all about his first round draw, he was whining in his last blog entry that he doesn't like this kind of players.
6/1, 6/7(3), 6/4, 4/6, 6/3 in 3 h 04 - his first win in 5 sets according to the FFT website! It was about time, he will turn 29 soon.
He says in his audio interview he knew about his poor stats in 5 sets, but it wasn't bothering him because he hasn't played so many matches in 5 sets (4, I think), so it wasn't on his mind at the beginning of the 5th set. He had the feeling that he was controlling the game and just needed to keep it up.
Nieminen now, Flo has a great record against him (4-1).
