    I am really loving this series.

    I have an ending prediction.

    I think that ultimately he will still die at the same...

  4. [Discussion] Re: What line-ups would be the best for each team?

    Nope, he still has to get the mini-break in the tiebreak. Whoever serves first only gets one serve so it's even. So you can never get two points ahead unless you break one of their serves.
