Epic chokefest and bad-call-fest.
Groth didn't face a BP all match until 6-3 5-4 30-40, where he got a bad call, the first of many on crucial points at the end of that set. Missed 3 MP in the tiebreak, including one on his own serve.
In the third, Groth had 4-2, totally fell apart, went down 5-5 30-40, where Cabal missed a 72 MPH second serve. Groth got the minibreak in the tiebreak with another outrageous call, won it on a double at long last after being *4-0 up. Groth's fastest serve was 146.1 MPH

Am I wrong in remembering this event having Hawkeye last year? God knows it should

This event needs Hawkeye something terrible, particularly if local players are going to get such crazy calls going their way.

Epic choke fest is spot on. Groth blew that 2nd set something awful, then handed the break back in the third, only to have Cabal miss a complete sitter that would have given him the match at 5-5. I really believe that Groth would have found a way to blow that 3rd set TB had Cabal rolled his second serve in at 4*-6 in the breaker.

A DF to end the match couldn't have been more fitting.
