I don't like that at all...Mika leads 2 sets to one...could Piquito win in 5 sets....Please Piquito, please !!
What he was doing so effectively in the 2nd set was getting into neutral rallies, always staying a few feet within the baseline, and waited for Llodra to make an agressive move where he could either pass Llodra, beat him in a forehand rally, or wait for Llodra to grow impatient and make an UFE or set the ball short where he could come into the net with a passing volley.
Of course, Llodra started serving huge in the third set making the strategy difficult to execute.
Phew!! 1-1 on another tough service game. He has shown tremendous composure under pressure.
Llodra is just serving unbelievably right now. I wish he would cool off.
