Re: Tennis Muttering Thread - vol2
This. Another incredibly disappointing slam result. I don't remember the last time I was truly happy with both winners. Probably the year Kim & Rafa won USO in 2010
I overslept the epic Novak-Andy encounter, but it seems it was as anticlimactic as the women's final. I mean, their matches are always bad, but at least they're usually dramatic whereas this one indeed sounds like some MM event final neither was too keen on playing.
Yep. This one was actually quite boring in comparison to the others. Their last few meetings were generally shitfests (Olympics/Shanghai were probably the highest quality) but all had some drama. This one was missing that. The result was NID after the second set. There's not much Andy can do except to improve his mentality still. Many times he had Novak 0-30 (0-40 at the start of the second set) & wasted those chances with some cheap errors. The main other area to improve is the second serve. It is a terrible puffball serve & barely breaking 70 mph
Sarin would kill those second serves.
