Re: Leonardo kirche [BRA]
I was there. The portuguese is a very consistant player in the baseline, as you must know.
Leo played an amazing first set, huge serving, great forehand.
In the second set, the portuguese broke him at the beginning. No more chances for the brazilian.
In the third he had the match is his hands. Machado was completely disturbed, said nasty words do the chair umpire, smashed his racket. His coach was by my side and almost gave up. But Kirche seemed to be affected by the things Machado did. The portuguese started to hit very slow and high balls, and Kirche could not finish the match.
I screamed a lot for him. The tiebreak was tied in 3 points, when Leo payed a great approach forehand, but the portuguese did an amazing shot. This was Leo's last chance. I was really sad for him.
