I feel a bit sorry for Novak because that racket beating was just a small part of the CYGS nerves and pressure he's feeling. It's like constant stress with some breaks for what, a month at least probably?


..shows how hard it is to pull this off.
There are days where you just don't have "it".
Not over yet, but -- Novak had two chances to break this set, and couldn't take advantage.

Legend of Borg

Never understood the complaints over racket breakings. It doesn't hurt anybody and allows the player to calm his nerves. What's disturbing is venting his frustration on somebody.
Probably some old school "sportsmanship" rule, circa Wimbledon era, 19th century.

As dumb as wearing all white at Wimby.


Most IMPORTANT games of Medvedev's life are coming up right now. Can he hold his serve?
Novak will come AFTER him with a Bazooka.
