Yes, thank God he came back to win it. :)
Carlos appeared to be "doing a Rafa" a la Chennai final in that first set... I was shocked to see him down 0-5!! But he stopped the rot and came good. His 1st serve % was only 57%, but he saved 7 out of 9 break points, and won 2 out of 3 bp's from Koubek. I would have been very disappointed if he'd kept going down ... Bueno, keep the focus Carlos, go for the Sydney title!!

Whenever I feel depressed about this match, I think of the point when Koubek used a drop shot...then a lob...then a drop shot. Hilarious! Damn Austrians...they do my head in! Off to Melbourne in the morning :)

Gotta appreciate what this guy can still do. Choke or no choke (missing a couple of break points hardly constitutes a choke).

Couple years back I thought he was waning. Still strong.
