Vintage Samuel, broken at love and to 15 at 4-5 in the last two sets respectively.

DF on the match point.

Get well soon Sam.

Yeah, I know you won't.

Vasek was embarrassing as could be in that 3rd set, but credit to him for getting his head together, played a hell of a game to break to love to win the 4th, and managed to get the ball back into play a couple times so Sam could gift him that deciding break in the 5th.

Beautiful proof that you do not need to be LEADING a match, to choke. Players at 5-4 or 4-3 behind in sets tighten up severely. ;)

A choke can be anything, from spurning BP/SP opportunities to getting tight when serving to stay in a set or match.

I hope the MTF jokers have that sussed in their little head's now.

Huge oppurtunity for Vasek now. Faces Lorenzi in round 2, winner of GGL and A.Gonzalez in round 3. Chance to get to round 4 to face who he should have faced last year here but had to withdraw, the Stanimal

Your boy should really be making the second week and with eeeaaase. Firm top 20 player. Big serve, big forehand, classy at the net and moves VERY well for a big guy. :cool:

It seems the first server of the Set wins that Set, so it was nice that Pospisil went to overdrive and played an excellent return game to break Querrey in the 4th Set to start the 5th Set first and able to get leads.
Vasek served first in the 3rd and lost that set :p

Vasek finally met his match in terms of choking in slams. That was an absolutely pathetic final game from Sam...even worse than the 4-5 game in the 4th set.

Great chance now for Vasek to reach the 4th round and gain some much needed points after last year.

Amazing effort from Querrey to last five sets on a tennis court without curling up in a ball and crying.

It doesn't matter how easy is the draw, Vasek will make it difficult for himself.

But there's hope with the way he hanged on to his serve in 4th set and turned up the heat at 5-4 after his abysmal effort in 3rd set.
