3 breadsticks dished out and yet a lost TB, not often you see that. Simon served for it in the 3rd but was broken and taken to a TB. Kavcic didn't hold serve at all in the final set, only game won was on Simon's serve.

3rd set Simon was majorly struggling with concentration because the first 2 sets were so easy, 42 mins for them both. Back to normal in the 4th set after an early few tightly contested games.

Wonder who Gilles would prefer next, he has a great record vs Monf but their matches are torture for him, where as he has a bad record vs Manny but you'd assume he might prefer his chances to get an easier win over Manny if he plays well.

Kavcic was hopeless in the first 2 sets then when he finally held serve near the end of the 2nd set, he got a loud cheer from the crowd. H whiche gave them a big smile and jockingly thanked them for their support and from that moment on they were completely behind him. Other players could learn a lot from that as it was remarkable how one smile can win over a fairly bored and apathetic crowd.

Blaz seemed to settle after holding that serve and started striking the ball really well. He went from being pushed around by Simon to taking control of most of the the rallies. His defense was incredible and he was throwing himself around the court, chasing down every ball. He really earned that 3rd set but he had an injury time-out for his foot at the start of the 4th and his level dropped a bit.

It wa san entertaining match after the 2nd set with a lot of long, exciting rallies and Kavcic did himself proud in the end. :yeah:
