The ensuing point was the first of three deuce points in the set, this one with Martin on serve. He would lose this game before coming back from a 30-0 deficit to take the next game to break back.

The very next game resulted in another broken serve for Martin, this one he was unable to break back, bringing the match level at 5-all. The servers would win the next two games to force a tiebreaker.
