break point? he lost the first set.

did you watch the same match that I did? it was a close 4 set match with three of the four sets ending in tie breaks and the other one ending (7-5). that is a pretty close match in my book.

ultimately he kept it together an won fair and square. i'm not taking that away from him, but it was far from an emphatic performance. i never commented about brands before the match (negatively or positively) so i don't know what hype you're on about. brands actually played very well in this match, but tomic was better... marginally so as the scoreline and the match attest.
