    i wake up at the morning (europe/budapest time) at 4 AM and checked the scores. Tipsarevic was leading 2-0 in sets and i was happy as im always happy when a weaker ranked player is winning.and now that i woke up again i checked the score again and see that verdasca beat him.how cn they loose from 2-0 in sets?brain midgets?

    loose: not rigidly fastened or securely attached
    lose: to fail to win, gain, or obtain; to undergo defeat

    simple. first man to win three sets is the winner.

    Pressure is sometimes a factor, other times it's physical conditioning.

    In Janko's case it was the mental first, but by the end of the 4th set he was done physically. He was a point away, but that ended up being too far.

    Maybe the other player started to play better and you just can't keep it up?

    People should realise that tennis isn't like football or soccer. If you are up 5-0 in soccer, you can apply different tactics, make sure the opponent can't score goals, defend well etc. In tennis, you always have to win another point, until you win matchpoint, you'll always need to go get it yourself. That's a big difference. There's almost always a way back. Especially on clay or women's tennis where serving doesn't matter that much.

    A great point that, and it's one my favorite things about tennis(the inability to 'run out the clock', so to speak.)

    It is.. Tennis is all about the way scores are kept. If it was first to a 100 points, it would be quite a boring sport really.
