Hi Jasper,

Yes it was an incredible match by Pitchford and like usually happens in these situations there is an element of luck and the better player not playing to their usual high standards.

Pitchford played some good tactics playing a little more short and wide to Xu Xin's forehand area but of course you need to play a few more good balls in the rally to get through a player like him.  Watch out for a couple fo the inside out forehand topspins by Pitchford in this match and also his pressing backhand topspin.
