Yeah, from 40-15 on Karlovic's serve to one break down.
And the cameras are showing only Karlovic, it's getting annoying, we spent the whole changeover admiring Karlovic sitting on his chair. Very exciting.

Like his tennis! I tried to watch, but I can't, I am on PHM/Zverev.

Honestly Gael still has a lot of work to do mentally. He just dodged a bullet here, but it's not as if he was pumping himself up and trying to really get back into it. He started the match nonchalantly, didn't take his chances, got broken, then went directly from nonchalant to blasé.

I didn't think PHM was going to win this match after the first set, but he is doing very well in the third!

TB He's improving, but still.
It can't be his last preparation match before the US Open already, it seems he just came back on the tour!

Phew, awesome get at 1-2, allez.

Did he pump himself up enough for your liking on that passing-shot at 5-5?

What a finish in the tiebreak!

My god, when did Karlovic become the volley master? His volleys are incredible.

Did he just play a dropshot winner (almost)?

Gaël is volleying pretty well too for his standards.

4-4, allez.

Now watch him lose because of that missed BH volley at 40-30.

Phew, nicely done, 5-5.
I liked his "sneak attack", too bad he wasn't rewarded for it, he definitely tries to mix up his game more today.

Gaël always is so nice in defeat, I find it amazing - j'aurais envie de tout casser si j'étais lui.

What a disgusting tie-break. 5 full aces? Gael didn't even get to touch the ball on Karlovic serve. That's not tennis.
