Marat was playing very well, but Mikhail was obviously intimidated as he was spraying balls all over the court. He ended with 53 unforced errors to just 16 winners! :eek: Marat ended with only 14 winners, but just 6 unforced erros. HE DIDN'T HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DICTATE!

Malisse served for the match, but the young French man hung tough and won the third set tiebreak quite handily. Great, high quality match with amazing shots from both players. Now I must go because my sisters need the computer. Try to post results tomorrow, please don't get mad, I can't control it.

WOW!: 4 match points were not enough for Flavio as he falls in an epic encounter with Tommy. Until the matchpoints, Saretta was completely in the zone, and was simply determined to win. Tommy fought as best he could, but looked on the verge of loosing. Finally, Tommy seemed to wake up at triple matchpoint against him, and to my utter surprise, went on to win the match. Congrats Tommy, and Flavio, you know you can do better next time! :wavey:

That was a great match. Guga just got exhausted at the end and his serve let him down. Pat won the final 12 points of the match for a hard fought victory. The match was very fun to watch because Patrick's serve volley attack contrasted sharply with Guga's passing shots.

Game, Set, and Match: Marat Safin (BH Winner). 7-6(6); 6-4

Marat just played a very clean match. Gasquet, who has a lot less firepower, used his craftiness and court skill to keep Safin on his toes and not allow him to dictate. Unfortunately, Marat's serve was on fire, and he held at love all but two service games. When Marat's serve works like that, there is nothing you can do. Good job Richard though for getting this far.

BTW Guys, if you choose to, you can send me a special shot for your player that will be used if I roll a 5 during live scoring. Otherwise it will be a lob or drop shot, which is kind of boring.
