It was a dramatic mixed doubles rubber, with the Germans winning the first set and holding a match point at 6-5 in the second.Lisicki thought she had served an ace to take the set, match and tie, but it was called a let and she then served a double fault to enable the French to force it to a tiebreak.The Germans then saved three set points before the French eventually won the tiebreak 8-6 to force the deciding match tiebreak.The first set was a comfortable 6-2 win for the Frenchwoman, but the German started to show more signs of the form that took her to the 2013 Wimbledon final in the second set.
