Thinking the same. Why was he 10 meters behind baseline on 1st serve ? He couldn't even reach the net in those 1 st serve ROS a numerous times. Was that something that Alex sugested? With Pippo's "drop shot" serve he won't be able even to get to the ball in time.
Yeah but why do you assume he will receive at the same spot against that serve?
If you didn't notice, Lopez has one of stronger and nastier serves on the tour. I bet he's gonna come much closer to the baseline vs. Pippo.
