Surprised no one posted this. I'm guessing most have been unable to comprehend what an incredible match this was. A titanic struggle between two legends of the game.
What a fighter Gael. From 2-5 down in the first to winning the match. He was dying out there. Suffering from a magical illness, then suddenly rose to battle, and produced a stunning performance.
This wasn't a tennis match. This was an epic to be adored. A tale to be told to your grandchildren, a 'where were you moment' that shall transcend the ages.
I hope to pass on this resilience to my children. When in trouble or strife - always channel the spirit of the faker.
