Petange CH F: Kamke d. Mathieu 1-6 6-3 7-5
Tough loss for Paulo. Didn't see the first set, Kamke broke early in the third and led 3-0*, Mathieu broke back in Kamke's next service game only to get broken at 4-3* iirc. Kamke was really painint the lines at times. PHM managed to hold in his fist service game in the third, I think he had a 0-30 and then led 2-1*, a very long game in which Kamke saved some BPs with some nice shots, many FH DTL. PHM had to save another difficult situation mid-way into the 3rd set when Kamke had a 15*-40 opportunity thanks to a great CC BH return that had him in control of the rally but couldn't convert the BPs, PHM played a clutch game. Kamke was holding serve without too many problems too and finally PHM got broken at 5-5 I think he also throw in a DF (he hit quite a few), at 30*-40 there was a tough rally that Kamke resolved with a FH winner. PHM threw his raquet in hanger and Kamke held serve easily to win the match.
PHM will play Sijsling in Metz, he got a WC.
