Mathieu def. Koubek 4-6 7-6(4) 2-6 7-5 8-6

:sad:

Koubek was 3-0 up in 4th set but blew it away after getting broken at *5-6 after amazing game with 7 deuces and spectacular rally at last SP.
Stefan could regroup in final set, took early break here and was 3-0 up as well but PHM rebroke him quite immediately at 3-1. Koubek served 3 aces at *4-4 in final set :eek:. Koubek got broken to love at *6-6 and Mathieu was serving for the match. PHM served it out after saving 1bp and closed match with 2nd mp.
It was very nice match to watch with many up's&down's and with many interesting rallies. Personally I enjoy almost all Koubek's matches. Shame that Austrian lost it :(

:woohoo: Paulo didn't choke away the last game!

Koubek is really tough when he's on, as he was this week. It seem as though Paulo might have overcome his mental barrier. He'll be really tired for his match against Nadal, but at least I'll be able to see it ;)

Mathieu finally won an amazing match :yeah: Comeback from 0:3 down in 4th & 5th set is very special. BTW, I didn't know that Wilander is a new coach of Mathieu :D

This time he refused to choke
Only some UE from Koubek stopped it, 7/6 he had a bp and a terrible error prevented it

Also you dont choose to choke it just happens

That's not the point. I think we all expect that, but he fought so hard today for the win and 4th round points.
