If his serve was as solid as, say, Tsonga's, he would be that kind of player: a power baseliner who blows even the top guys off court.
I reckon, with a good second serve and a consistent, big first serve he could have had a career just like Gonzo. Shame
Good point...the come back was solidified when in the 5-3 game he finally got some first serves in to set up his points. From that game onward, he started getting alot of first serves in.
