End of Mannarino’s odd streak

I had already mentioned Mannarino’s winning streak of long tie-breaks during the last Wimbledon. The Frenchman didn’t play a tie-break with at least two changes of end since then until today – he was beaten by Ivan Dodig 6-7(5), 6-7(6) in the first round in Stockholm. Mannarino led 3:0 and 6:5* in the 2nd tie-break, but Dodig managed to escape with a help of solid service performance (19 aces). It’s Mannarino’s first tie-break defeat with at least fourteen points played since September ’08 when he lost to P.H.Mathieu 6-7(8), 6-7(1) in the Metz semi-final #. After that, he won 15 consecutive tie-breaks (on different levels) with at least two changes of ends!
# At least 14-point tie-breaks of Mannarino between September 2008 & October 2011:
<<< 9-7, 8-6, 12-10, 8-6, 8-6, 8-6, 8-6, 8-6, 9-7, 8-6, 11-9, 9-7, 9-7, 16-14, 9-7 >>>
