Cool thread. I loved that match.
iirc, at 6-2, 4-1 down [or right before that], Boris shook his head and looked like he was going to pack it in. Then he started really boogeying at the baseline and slicing his Bh short x-ct to Dre's bh. Not the BH to Bh matchup ANdre enjoyed. Boris would earn a short ball and often come in. That paid off a lot more than predictably coming in.
Is it my imagination, or did Andre lose some intensity at the end of the 2nd set there?
Well, anyway, what a great match. Inspiring: the tenacity despite the rough matchup and the fact that Andre could have gone on to just roll him.... a subtle tactic change and the triumph of a game more suited to a grass court.
