It's dangerous to have a lot of sweat on the courtJesus, an hour and a half but these guys just HAVE to take a toilet break and change their kit. People used to think tennis players were wimps back in the old days. Now we look like a bunch of pampered *****.
My shorts are all wet. I gotta go change.
A simple statement: he hasn’t been top shelf since Zverev rallied from a set down at OG to win. He had his chance to rebound in the bronze medal match but you choose to ignore that.I didn't use it as excuse, I just said that your comment that his game sucks since OG doesn't make sense, as this is his first tournament after OG. I agree, it was mistake not to compete in Cincinnati, like Fed did at RG, retire if you had enough, but to pause for one month before maybe most important tournament in your career... But again he has team, they obviously know better than us. And on part about pigeons, it is always hard to keep defeating someone, like Fed and Rodd 2009, opponent knows he has nothing to loose, so he plays strees free. But it is not black and white, you got the point too, can't deny that having your pigeon in part of the draw is nice some times
1) Clutch servingUgh. I just want to see a great match. Novak not playing that special at all. Of course that's how you become a 20 Slam champ - your "not that special" level is good enough to win most matches.
Agree. But if Djokovic wants to beat Zverev or Medvedev, he needs to lift his first serve percentage seriously. Must be in high 70s or 80s.The lines you need to circle are the first and fifth ones. Brooksby has zero aces and is losing 62% of the points when he hits a second serve.
Take a look a Brooksby's average serve speeds on his first and second serves. They are very slow for a 6'4" player. His second serve is in the low 80s.
