I watched patches of the fourth set today through a choppy, delayed stream on LSH. I didn't see the 3rd and the 4th MPs Tsonga had, but I saw the first two. The first one was the match. Unless, my stream was worse than I thought, wasn't that an almost-sitter bh pass that Tsonga had. Why did he aim it down the line over the highest part of the net? Djokovic guessed right and lightly re-directed his fh volley cc. It's match frickin' point! Why doesn't Tsonga drive that ball low and hard right at Nole over the lowest part of the net, aiming it right at him, making him the "target"? I just don't understand. I know it's a gentleman's game and all, but when I was learning how to play tennis in the late eighties, I was taught that that was always a good play when the person has standing right in the middle. Hit it right at them, low, handcuff them. I'm not saying try to hurt someone, aim for their head, etc. But why make it harder for yourself and try to hit an extreme angle cc, or a difficult dtl? Tsonga guided it; the shot had no heat to it, and the point was over. Is this fall-out from the Amalgro/Berdych flap at the AO? Do players just not aim at each other anymore? Is it not "sporting"? I ask because I never see that play anymore: right at the guy standing in the center of the court, not giving him room to make a fh or bh volley? Does anyone know if this is just a "new" unwritten rule--"Don't aim at your opponent" and I'm just stuck in the stone ages? On a separate note, Nole has just got ice-water in his veins. 8 MPs saved in three different GS. Wow.
