Good to see Mugro take it in the end
Tennis Fucking Sucks
Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.
I respect Pure Tennis. First-strike, all-court, offensive tennis. Players who succeed here can succeed in both an offensive and defensive eras of tennis. Impure grinders like Nadull, Djokovic, and Murray could never win in an offensive tennis era.
Almagro let it go to five for extra match practice (first match this year).
He has so many five setters in the first week of Slams. It's almost expected now no matter who he plays.
Not often do you see someone win more than 30 games in a match.
He practiced earlier with Djokovic and Tipsarevic and seemed to be in fine form, but I can tell you this Johnson guy sure has future
