Tursumug choked big time in this one. He served for the match in the second but was broken and led *4-1 in the second tiebreak. The match point came at 6-5*.
I am really shocked by this one. I was even surprised when the first went to a tiebreak. I know Chela made the QFs last year but he really hasn't played well at all this year and I think Tursunov is a better hardcourt player.
EDIT: Forgot there was another MP with Chela serving at 3-5 in the second set. So two MPs saved for Juan.
Won 1st set after being a break down. Had BPs to be two breaks up in the second set. At 76 53 had double MP on Chela' serve with Juan Ignacio missing first serve on both MPs. Led 30-0 when serving for the match at 76 54, then lost 4 points in a row including a DF on break-point. Saved SP at 76 56. Was double mini-break up in the second set tie-break serving at 4-1, hit a DF. Had two serves at 5-4. Held another MP at 6-5...
Unbelievable string of chokes from Tursunov :help:
