Taylor played a very good match, he had the upper hand in most of the baseline rallies as well, which I didn't expect. Of course, Nico's having a bad year and played far from his best, but it's a great win for Taylor nevertheless.
Superb use of slice BH today by Taylor, knifed it very well in numerous occasions
