That's not heart. That's called playing with freedom because you think it's a lost cause.

That's called Monfils-like. The TB was full of heart, though....from both.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

These dudes are just going for the Madrid 09 record for longest 3-setter

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

Testicular fortitude? He was playing to the crowd. He did what he usually does when he thinks the match is gone: hits the ball as hard as he can.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

Even now it's still in Murray's hands (he should in theory win the final set.

Needless to say, that's only theory.

Different things work for different people, what's the problem there?

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Tiebreak, yes. Return game at 4-5? Pure hit and hope.
