Moscoso was down in the tie-breaker, 10-9, but he got the serve back and tied the game. On his first match point Morcoso drove the ball to the left, Garay's return was high, and allowing the Bolivian an opportunity to pinch the ball after it came off the back wall. He capitalized on that and won the championship.
