What a ridiculous decision to start that fifth set, Lokoli was done and dusted and there was no way of getting anywhere near completing it.

Enormous choke from Lokoli from *4-0 up in the third set, missing 2 MP in the process.

This is the best match of the first round.

Lokoli/Brokoli 4-0 up in 2 sets and managed to take one and lost another.

Steve was awesome in the later part of the 3rd set and 4th set. Some winners by him were pure gold.

One of the worst choke ever.

I just hope Lokoli loses this 6-1 and to never see him again in a Grand Slam.

Crazy match from what I saw. Didn't catch the apparent 4-0 lead at the 3rd Set. What just happened that time?
Lokoli lost his mind and went down from a lead of 4-0 and again 5-2 and again 5-4 0-30*. Losing match points.

Lokoli would have lost this if they continue. Even tomorrow i think Johnson is clear favori, Lokoli should have won this in straight sets, still don´t get how he lost double-break lead in 2nd and 3rd sets- each went to tie-break...

Lokoli is tremendously exciting; Johnson is the opposite. Obviously a massive choke in the 3rd set from the Frenchman, but he is only 19 and this is his first ever Grand Slam MD match, so it can be forgiven. I really hope Lokoli can win tomorrow; poor decision to not stop the match at the end of the 4th set. Either way, I think we'll be seeing Lokoli in the future. I can't wait to see him progress!

How can this possibly make you so angry? I see posts like this quite often, and it strikes me what a strange forum this is. He's a 19-year old kid playing way out of his depth! No tour matches, and I think I heard that he has only 8 Challenger matches!

Typical you. :rolleyes:

The guy is 19, for fuck's sake! His mentality will change through time. He'll be less tight when it comes to closing out important matches, but that will come with EXPERIENCE.
