Novak gets through another match not on shotmaking or technical ability but grinding out his opponent a way only possible on ultra slow courts.
Disgusting stuff, Stanislas should've won today but the courts and umpiring is rigged to prevent clowns like Djokovic from ever losing a match before SF.
If court was faster Novak would win easier.
Majority of points which Stan has won was on his defense not offense . He started with good defense on Novak attacks than switching to his own offense.
If court was faster 70% of Novak shots which he returned should be winners.
Organizers want slow courts because of sponsors and crowd. Crowd like grinding 5-6 hours matches.
