Second week of a slam. I saw K/W were serving for it in the second set.
To be honest, a defeat against Lopez/Verdasco would really piss me off, so I would rather want to see Björkman/Ullyett winning the match.
Great tiebreak from Philipp! Both mini-breaks were on his returning side (the return itself was not a winner, but put them in a good position to win the point imo) and his serve was perfect.
Well, he missed a volley on the first SP, but never mind.
And then on the 2nd SP (Ullyett serving), he stopped the game to challenge the serve again, the English announcer was like "OMG, what a gambler, that's very risky!" - and he was right. Ullyett's 2nd serve was harmless and easy win for them.
Philipp and Alex just won the 4th set - a very nice match actually. What's costing the two (or cost them until the end of the 4th set) is/was the inconstancy especially on big points. But it's a very even contest and Alex and Philipp will have every chance.
Shit, we jinxed him, he got broken then. No idea what happened, I had to leave shortly after the 4th set.
Well, Ullyett is not unbreakable and Björkmann is getting treatment on his shoulder atm, so it is still doable.
Oh, that's Fleming? I know him, I started following tennis in the seventies! (I'm acting like a fangirl on MTF, but I'm old, actually.)
But I don't pay much attention to their comments because the sound on my laptop is terrible, so I just catch a few words most of the time.
This time I saw Philipp get broken again. Gosh, what a collapse.
