Partly though, he was just pacing himself, clearly winded at moments, if he swung like he did when he was in his prime, he'd probably have a coronary in the first game!
He probably was making sure he won by pacing himself and didn't work too hard instead of trying to make the score look bad and maybe exhausting himself before the end of the match.
