This i heard from the coach who was with him down there ,kinda funny to me but the other coach said had he got through he was home free and these are the lessons I hope don't have to be learned over and over and will be good .
do they have different scoring system in Mexico? According to ITF site the score was 5-7 6-3 5-7 (btw. good result, very close match). Given that score - how is it possible to have a match point, lose it, --and-- "then came out in the 3 rd crushing the ball and lost the match , 7 5 in the 3rd"??
