Isner vei 5. erän lopulta 70-68 ja näin ollen voitti ottelun erin 3-2. Huikea matsi kyllä ja itse tuli seurattua tuo about 8 tuntia kestänyt viides erä lähes kokonaan ja olihan se aivan uskomatonta, että peli jatkuu ja jatkuu vaan. Koko ottelu kesti yli 11 tuntia ja siinä ajassa Isner pommitti 112 ässää, Mahutin "jäädessä" 104. :rolleyes:

 

Nieminen hävisi Murraylle suoraan erin 3-0, eikä Jarkko oikeastaan missään vaiheessa mystynyt Andya haastamaan ottelun voitosta. Omalla tasollaan Nieminen pelasi, mutta se ei vaan läheskään riitä maailman aivan huippuja vastaan. Paikkoja kääntää ottelu Jakella oli kyllä tarpeeksi, mutta aina tiukassa Murray nosti pelinsä tasoa selvästi.

 

Parhaillaan menossa on Nadalin ja Robin Haasen välinen matsi, jossa Haase voitti 1. erän 7-5 ja toista erään Nadal johtaa 3-2 yhdellä murrolla. Ei ole Rafa kyllä kovinkaan kummoisesti tähän mennessä pelannut, vaan helppoja virheitä tulee yllättävän paljon. Haase sen sijaan pelaa omaan tasoonsa nähden erinomaisesti ja Nadal on vaikeuksissa Haasen hyökkävän taktiikan kanssa.

HAND HITCH FOR BEST MAN ANDY

Thursday October 28,2010

 

TENNIS star Andy Murray has vowed to fulfill his role as brother Jamie’s best man today, despite injuring his hand while playing a computer game.

 

The highly competitive world No 4 was forced to wrap his right hand in ice after straining a tendon using his PlayStation.

 

Andy, 23, was playing Pro Evolution Soccer against doubles partner Dani Vallverdu when he was felt a twinge in his hand.

 

After losing to Venezuelan David Cup player Vallverdu, who was born in Spain, Murray wrote on his website: “Aagh! I just lost 1 match to Dani at the new Pro Evolution and I think I broke my hand!”

 

He added: “Icing the hand – time to grow up Andy!”

 

Glasgow-born Andy, who has earned £2million this year, hopes to shake off the injury before performing his official role at 24-year-old Jamie’s nuptials today.

 

One close friend said: “Everyone knows how much Andy loves to win – and his loathing of any defeat.

 

“He’s the same whether it’s a computer game or the real thing. Golf, tennis, football, basketball, he just hates losing and we all have a mental picture of him going crazy with the controls trying his best to beat Dani.

 

“Andy’s hand is a bit sore, but the tennis season is over and he’s said that nothing will stop him doing his bit for Jamie on his big day.”

 

Doubles star Jamie is tying the knot with Colombian student Alejandra Gutierrez at a service in their home town, Dunblane, Perthshire.

 

The couple’s banns were posted in the town’s registry office earlier this month and the groom’s party will be dressed in Murray tartan kilts. Former Wimbledon mixed doubles champion Jamie lives with fiancée Alejandra, 20, in London.

 

Andy arranged a marathon stag party last month at the Whisky Mist nightspot in Mayfair.

 

The wedding venue remains secret but the ceremony is expected to be a traditional affair.

 

The tennis brothers’ separated parents, Judy and William, are both expected to attend.

It is understood Andy will be with girlfriend Kim Sears, 22, after they rekindled their A relationship.
