Congrats to Paulo for winning here, but he didn't have it easy.

Seppi served for it at *5-3 in the third and was broken to love...got really tight...can't afford to do that and Paulo reeled off the next two games to leave himself serving for it. Tough battle in the final game but Paulo hung on - well done to him for that.

Seppi - missed opportunity here, bigtime.

Paulo had his chances in 1st set up 5-3 40-15 on serve the 1st set, but couldn't close the deal and Seppi was able to win another tiebreaker.

In the 2nd set Paulo's serve kept him in the match and he was able to break Seppi and close it out.

Tough last set going down to the wire and Seppi choking away a 5-3 lead, when he forgot how to play and missed serves everywhere and Paulo was smart enough to get the ball in and make Seppi win it and he couldn't.

Great week for Seppi apart from the last 4 games.

I can't believe it. PHM got outchoked today. :eek:

He had 3 SPs at *5-3 40-15 and 5-4* 30-40 but wasted them all. Seppi led 5-3 in the third and lost the following four games. Seppi wins the choking contest. :eek:

At least seppi might learn from choking at a position like *5-3 final set in an atp final and not do it again

But otherwise well done PHM, had a feeling this tourno was yours when gasquet went out.

Seppi beat PHM in choking department and that's quite an achievement

Congrats to PHM on winning a 4th title and making the top 25 for the 1st time. :yeah:
Good week for Seppi, and it was a very closely fought match today, I'm sure he'll reach more finals in his career.
