I felt Nadals excessive cheering and fist pumping after simply winning his own simple service points in the 4th set, and that celebration after winning the 4th set was very unnesascary. Sure, celebrate when you win a break point or something, but winning a service point is just a bit excessive and shows he knew he was being outplayed.
Similarly, the dramatic way Novak fell to the ground in the 5th set was a bit silly
He got up and continued to play fine after that point. Also, like it or not, he was clearly faking sluggishness in the 5th set. He would hit a shot with perfect follow through, and only after it missed he sort of slumped over and limped a bit. It was painfully obvious and it cant be denied. He did it at least 2-3 times.
And finally, both players were taking in excess of 30 seconds between points, and despite a friendly warning, NOTHING was done yet again from the umpire.
Not to sound hatefull, but this is kind of why I like the Federer Murray matches. You dont get so much of this kind of thing. It was still a great match but the commentators are just so clueless, after seeing it time and time and time again with Ferrer, Murray et all, they still thought Novak was dead tired
I dont have a problem with it actually, I just wish the commentators and expert would stop pretending and admit that gamesmanship has become a part of the game at the top.
