HYUNG!!!!!!!!!!! Thank God. Blowing a two set lead to Mayer would've been embarassing.

Mayer fought off one match point on Lee's serve in the tie-break.
and he did it in style :worship:
great retrieving and then attacked with a sharp cross forehand

he looked like he could win after that but lee was still solid and Mayer got tired, at the end of the match Mayer was trying to finish points with 2-3 strokes

Pretty good match. :)

Mayer reminded us, why he is so entertaining to watch. Forehand slice (even as a passing shot), double handed volleys and moon balls. :lol: But he should have been more agressive.

It's no wonder that he got tired and got cramps, since he was mostly sitting way behind the base line and being very defensive. As Waske said: "He can't win by playing that defensive and by running from right to left all the time."

Congrats to Lee, Germany should still win but the tie will reach the 3rd day.

Mayer :(

But he had blisters and cramps in the 5th. He probably should have won the 1st set with all the break points he had.

He was already cramping in the 4th set.
It's true he fought really well to win the 4th set in these conditions, but I don't agree he looked at that time like he was going to win, he was already having condition issues.
And it just got worse in the 5th.

I wouldn't call it a good match. Dramatic, yes, but Mayer made Lee look way too good with his moonballing crap. Lee was solid, he played a good match for his standards, but nothing amazing.

And the 2nd set really hurt my eyes. Mayer said it himself in the interview, "I was playing like a beginner".
