Can't believe Williams made that nice comeback and then dogged the 10. He was down on that shot for what seemed like an eternity, at that point I just felt like he was gonna miss it. Some great matches and shots yesterday though.

Yup. Orcollo was also quite fortunate when Alex missed a pretty easy 6-ball (but with kind of difficult position) on the hill at 8-7 in their second set . That was Alex' last shot. That second-set saw the lead change 6 times.

Thats what happens when you force it in the side after bad position...hell of a match though
