god baggy sucks
couldn't serve a first serve to save his life
makes life difficult if you serve like 30-40% in the pro level

Ouch, Baggy.

Funny stuff from Mayer. So superior, but relentlessly choking bp after bp after bp after bp (24bps in 15 return games).

Mayer has talent but is a hopeless choker. Maybe this win will give him some confidence.

this match was not close as the scoreline suggests
mayer always had the upperhand but choked so many times in break points
3/24 bp conversion
the whiff by baggy in match point was federer-like and summed up the match nicely

it would have been tragic if mayer lost this..
he was 0/14 BP's converted at 5-7 3-3*, he has no idea how to play a BP, and should have won this in straights 6-2 6-3.

Looks like Baghda had a good practicing today.

Good win for Mayer. I like his game. He should be a solid top 30-player - if he can improve his mental strength...

Leo seems like the type who goes really on and off for long stretches. Maybe now with this win, he will be on a hot streak right in time for the French.

Better clay courter won. Justice.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.
