Default Barcelona R2: Montañes def. Tomic 6-0 5-7 7-5

Too good Fat Albert saving match points when he was serving at *4-5. Finally getting some matches after the hernia problem he has had.

Nard Dog plenty of break points in the final game as well.

Default Barcelona R2: Montanes def. Tomic 6-0 5-7 7-5

Bernard had 6 BPs in the final game. An extremely back and forth match. Albert also saved a handful of MPs at *4-5 in the third set. Bernard came from a break down in the third. Almost pulled off a great comeback but it wasn't meant to be. Good fighting win for Albert, this victory will give him a lot of joy.

Wow. What a way to ruin a great comeback by choking.

And here I was thinking Tomic was mentally tough....

Lots of chances for Tomic but Montanes only needed one MP to seal it.

Mental giant Monty returns. MP saved, 11/12 BPs saved in 3rd set, including MPs and BPs when serving for it

Tomic wasted 10 break points in the last two return games, 4 of those were match points, three of which were on Montanes' second serve. Lost on the first match point he faced

I couldn't watch the match but how is it possible to only win 3 point on serve and only 5 points in total in the 1st set? Still he put up a good fight in the end but how much of that was due to Tomic and not Montanes being rusty?
