Yeah, sometimes Fed can actually win the match in less time by letting a game or two go per set against a low-ranked player, then just break once and speed through his service games in a minute or two. Instead of getting into a rhythm and extending the match fighting in a bunch of deuce games, Fed just goes for his shots and it's over before they know it.
Unless they put him on very late at night, then Fed feels an urgency to head to Mirka's warm bedside and he'll bring supreme focus. Remember that late match against (now Top 10 player) Juan Monaco last year? 6-1 6-2 6-0. Donald is hoping for a day match.
