When you have to hit 6 balls close to line just to force an error(not even hitting a clean winner!!) from djokovic your nerves fall apart, it's not like he missed some easy shots, novak just outlasted him and that's it, on faster surface 2 or 3 shots can finish the job
Watching matches on this courts is kinda weird, my eyes are giving me the wrong impression, so many times i think "it's a clear winner" and then the ball just slows down and opponent somehow manages to come back into the point.
