Joachim Johansson did it last year against Vliegen in Stockholm. Crazy how Hewitt saved his first match point on a let cord winner and the second on a second serve ace.
Yea, crazy indeed.

All I know is a break at this point in his career would have been nice for Dominik!

I saw it, huge balls on the 2nd serve.

How lucky was Hewitt on the point at 4-6 in the tie break though, clipped the net and dropped over. Poor Dominik, awful luck.

Funny how when a player goes for this and makes it by an inch they have big balls but when they miss by an inch they are a choker when the two are meant to be at opposite ends of the spectrum it appears at times they almost meet.

:lol:

Nah, I don't think it's a choke if you're MP down, and not in the lead :p

I guess you're right but at *5-6 in a breaker you are actually on serve. If not choker then headcase or some such terminology for someone whose tennis becomes worse in pressure situations.

Ive done it before a couple of times, obviously not in a big situation like this but I feel like theres not much to lose and if ive to go out, do it on my own terms.

It's reckless, but Hewitt has been serving big today (but not a massive first serve %).

Haha, of-fucking-course Hewitt double faults at *6-5 0-0. Do that earlier!

In the 2004 Cincy final Hewitt hit a df on MP. He was already down a break though.
