Good night session match between 27-year-old Schuettler , who was playing tennis of his life in 2003, and 22-year-old Fish  for whom it seemed to be a breakthrough event. In the opener the German held easily six times while the American needed to save break points in four different games. The tie-break absolutely didn’t reflect the way they had been holding, and Fish quickly built a 5:1 lead. He won the tie-breaks 7/4 and 8/6, fending off set points in both sets: in the opener at *4:5 (30/40) when delivered very good 2nd serve (104 mph), in the 2nd set tie-break at *5:6 with another fast serve down the T. He was quite lucky at 6-all because his volley, hit from comfortable position, landed on the intersection of baseline and sideline forcing Schuettler to play a helpless lob.
