Warwinka started to play to his backhand more which is serviceable but not threatening. Yet Warwinka is up 2 sets??? Warwinka's strokes in comparison don't appear to be as heavy. His forehand lands just past the service box a lot. His topspin 1HBH is good and he seems to be able to get some sick angles on it for winners. his first serve is also beastly. So is Querrey's achilles heal mental?
Querrey has two weapons, serve and fh. For opponents who are terrified by these weapons he usually kicks butt. But for opponents who can defuse these weapons he is totally lost. His game relies too much on these weapons and they can be liability as well as weaponry depending on the opponents. Strangely it's the story for so many young American players. Such game lacks versatility and resiliency.
