The match never seemed unwinnable though did it? i was a bit surprised how quickly some of you gave up on it.
Anyway well done Andy, and good luck with the next one.
It was just too reminiscent of some other matches to my liking (Ferrer WTF, Berdych Paris, Garcia-Lopez IW, Anderson Montreal, etc) - all the unforced errors, his head seemed to have gone. When he went 0-2 down in the 2nd set, having lost six games in a row, unable to do any right with Tipsarevic unable to do wrong, I (and a few others) just couldn't see how he was going to turn this around and come all the way back to win it. Even after he broke back, he got broken straight again and I had no faith in his serve.
Thankfully he did manage to find his tennis (and his serve) again and Tipsarevic's level dropped.
Fair play for keeping faith throughout, just how I felt at that situation ^^
