Guys, I won again but I pushed so much. I mean, I played well, but really have hit so few winners and most were volleys and drops.
I served well, but not like yesterday it was mostly smart serving... he tried to cheat so badly though and the last two games escalated quickly. On 2-6 6-3 4-4 I served and went down 15-40. I saved the first one with passing shot winner and on 30-40 he hit long, but he complained it was in and wanted the point to be replayed. We did and I saved it. On the next point we had gruelling rally where I defended everything until he hit a ball wide. I called it but he went nuts, this time I did not let him replay the point because I was 100% sure. He started complaining so much and his dad too, but I didn't care I am still sure it was wide. I went to serve on my advantage and hit the fastest ace of the match, probably of my life and it was already after two hours. First time in my life I screamed a massive come on to my opponent's face and changed court.
I went 0-30 and he cheated on purpose calling out a slice bh winner I hit and did not have the point being replayed. I still got to the first MP on 30-40 but he surprised me with underarm second serve. Deuce. He tried it again, but I won the point and had a second match point. He tried another underarm serve but we got caught in an endless rally, I hit a double handed demivolee drop that he reached but netted.
He walked to his bench but I walked to him and offered my hand, but he pulled a Bartoli and told me he wouldn't shake it, I turned around and said I had no doubts about my integrity.
2-6 6-3 6-4 in two hours and 15 minutes.
