Re: Sculpting a victory: A Pygmalion Slogan for the Australian Open! SF v Ferrer

Well drugi, you are Nole's fans !!! Our hero is always gaining extra power and focuse from adversity and haters so Just Do the Same !!! Remember when ennemies are becoming extremly aggressive that's because they are about to loose their faith and valours.

Just remember Nole is always having lapses even at his best and always has difficult games even in 2011 with five setters (or three setters in MS and 7/6 in the third) and even match points faced.

He is not a Swiss clock or a doped Jamon

From AO to RG 2011, he was regularly 1 set and 1 break down !

And what about this year : he has just been really in danger during 1 set and a half vs a very motivated and relaxed Stan.

Nole's average serve stats are far better than 2011 and 2012 : far more aces, 10 % more first serve points won and 20% second serve points won.

For sure, there is a lack of extra power in his rallies and some too long FH.

But Ferrer is really not at his top either and wouldn't be able anyway to find power and angles like Stan did.

Then facing Murray or Fed, I guess his improvment on serve, his probable reducing of erratic charges to the net, and his body returns will give him serious assets.

And anyway, even if loosing in final, and without an injury, he is to stay World N°1 until USO 2013
