Granollers was up 6-4 5-3 *40-0 3 MP and proceeded to lose the next 5 points and the set. He was then up a break at 4-2 in the 3rd set and had break point to go up a double break at 5-2, but didn't break and then lost his serve the next game. Then he was bageled in the tiebreak. :superlol: :superlol: :superlol:

:facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

What a treat. I was supporting Granollers but still great job.

And the "Choke" comment is simply disgusting. This was not a choke, but a great tennis match. Well done to both.

Amazing choking. Granollers has had a Hewittesque transformation from mental giant to mental midget since peaking in 2010ish.

It took some time, but looks like someone finally beat Anderson's choke in Canada.

did you actually watch the match ????? Simon hit 3 winners on each MP.
Yeah i watched it. Just because Simon hit 3 winners doesn't mean it wasn't a choke. Granollers could have played better much better on those points.

Granollers has break point when 3rd set 5-5 too, both players struggle in service games but everything is in Gilles racket IMO, he was just too up and down to make it quicker. The title is still Gilles' to lose if his physical problem is not that serious, he has Medical timeout in early 2nd set, and looks like same problem as Rome.

When your arm is shaking you hit a much softer ball. If Simon, and I repeat, SIMON hits 3 winners in a row, that can only be the case :lol:

Even Hahaase would call this a choke. Pushol :haha:

Problem here is that Granollers and Simon are basically the same kind of players. Trickery but no brute strength, penetration or ability to hit pure strength-based winners.. This made the thing joyful to watch. Granollers arguably slightly better server and better at the net while Simon - better trickster all around better plater and he won but fine margins.

Well done to both. The spins, slices and the net chess was great.
