I think he was nervous, he was making so many errors early in the match. So I'm sure that's part of it, but yeah. It's just so huge for him in particular.
it's not his serve percentage that's the only problem, i think mardy has to work on getting more consistent. he came up with some really nice shots, so it's possible for him to be consistent. it just sucks that mardy has to play fed. he hasn't gotten past the second round at all this year
