I noticed Guccione was up 5-1 in the 1st set breaker versus Garcia-Lopez on the live scores. I come back and he lost the breaker 7-5 . But he's 11/11 break point saved (now 3-3 in the 2nd) so that's great!
Went down 7-6(5) 7-5. Nice effort Chris.
It's not a rule, but please include tiebreaker scores in result threads - A 6-3 7-6(1) score is very different from a 6-3 7-6(9) score.
Felt so sorry for Gooch. After a long wait for rain delays, the Reid 3-setter, the Mailman marathon and the Jonesie 3 sets, he only took to the courts after 9pm. His was not a very long match though, surprisingly going down to Bachinger 7-6, 6-1.
The big Gooch gets into the Final in Burnie, outlasting Tomic to win 76 in the 3rd set. He served for the match at 5-4 but Bernie broke back then took the match to the tie-break. Gooch served 4 aces in a row to get to 6-5 up, then surprisingly Tomic came to the net (a rare event for him) and hit the volley wide to give Gooch the win.
Chris is seeded number 2 in a Futures in the USA and takes on talented WC Devin Britton in the first round got a feeling its gonna be a tough match but hopfully he can play a bit better this week. If he can get through that match he really should be troubled till the semi finals.
