    It's just an effect of the lens. If you pause it around 0:25 when Rafa's arm is near to the camera, his wrist looks thicker than his head.

    I think it's called foreshortening.

    Wow. That was bad. I'm pretty sure that I've never whiffed that bad at a shot. How could this happen to someone like Fed...

    Apparently his frame isn't big enough since he whiffed on match point against rafa.

    None of you have ever heard of a bad bounce? Seriously. This guys hit millions of tennis balls on every single surface, he's not gonna whiff on a regular bounce.. it was pretty obviously a bad bounce..
