Even Sampras got nervous when serving for matches, so it effects everyone differently. As I said it depends on the level and the attitude of the player, some can handle it and others don't.
I managed to get through the match on pure adreniline. We played almost 6 hours, final score was 6-7 6-3 5-7 7-6 11-9. It was the best match I\'ve ever played, it was at my club and by the end we had quite a lot of people watching
I also don\'t find tennis as tiring as some other sports, you get a lot of short little breaks in between points and games, so you\'re not constantly running like some other sports. I certainly felt the effects of the match the morning after though, I couldn\'t move
If you're Danish are you playing matches outside yet? I could see one of those scorelines on a fast indoor surface, if it was on clay good stuff? Yes, tennis there is plenty of time to stall and get your breath back if needed, but it can be gruelling as I know some of the guys where we used to play wouldn't sit down, they'd changed ends have a drink on the way to changing and then get on with it.
Got to warm down after those matches.
