Awesome playing by Mahut!
I've been impressed with his game ever since Queens 2007 (yeah, I admit I might have been a bit of a bandwagonner at that time as I had never seen him play before...
) - but here he showed his true quality yet again.
Lovely, very aggressive playing style - coming to the net whenever possible (and when NOT, too
), great serve-volleying, and his drop-volleys (when his game is on
) are just fantastic. Great serve, too - 15 aces, did I count that right?
) - just too passive, reluctant today. Ah well. I hope he's been having a great birthday party yesterday, and I'm sure he'll be back soon.
Thanks gentlemen for a very tight and entertaining match!
