I went 5-0 up looking for a clean sweep and Brandon pulled it back to 5-3 with at least 6 or 7 deuces in the final game as I started to feel the pressure to serve out for the match. It could have gone either way in all honesty. We were running out of time with only ten minutes left on court. I was very fearful of having to come back another day to complete.
