Great match; I agree that in the long run it may be better for him to keep it close, but end up losing. He was done in by the disappearance of his 1st serve in the 3rd - only 48%. No doubt fatigue catching up with him.
I don't know why he is playing in Acapulco, but he can limit the damage by losing 1st round (would be the 1st tournament of the year where he hasn't won at least 1 match).
I agree. I actually think he would have won if he wasn't so tired. He mentioned he was fatigued in the presser after the semifinal. 48 % first serve is very low, especially from Milos. So you could obviously see the fatigue getting to him. But one tournament win and getting to another final.. IN TWO WEEKS! That is AMAZING! He did well. He can be proud of himself even though he didn't win Memphis
I am really interesting in seeing him on clay, I'm not expecting much, since his game isn't really suited for clay, but.. you never know. I think the most important thing for him is to get the clay feeling before the Davis Cup tie. Where is Canada playing Davis Cup btw? In Mexico?
