Big credit to Mucho for this win. Served huge, returned better than many would have expected, was solid and consistent throughout and controlled all rallies. Isner fought hard the final game, which was his best return game in the match, but overall, he didn't return well enough, wasn't aggressive enough and he got suckered into playing Almagro's game. Good win for the Spaniard, clutch at the end saving two 0-30's on serve at the end of the match.
So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...
Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
Helps Fed. No Isner. Would have loved to see 7-6 7-6 6-7 6-7.
