Rochus and Darcis failed to bounce back and their opponent sealed the first set in 6-4. The fourth seeded duo, Tecau and Lindstedt smashed six aces and ended the second set without any double fault. With 79% first serve, grabbing 22 points, the tandem played an almost flawless match without an unforced error.
In the third set, they were more brilliant but their opponent bounced back and leveled their scores at 6-6 which led their match to a tie breaker. Later Tecau and Lindstedt made a mini break which moved them to 3-1. After smashing two powerful volleys, they moved ahead by 5-2 when Rochus and Darcis won both the points and reduced the gap to 4-5. However, Romanian-Swedish pair made the final shot which delivered them two good points to call for a win in 7-6 (4).
