A win of his life...with a toll unfortunately.
From his facebook: VAMOOO!!! win after 5 hours on 40 degrees.. collapse afterwards, but morphine works well, i feel happy )
Simply unhuman to let these guys play 5 hours on 40°c. That's more 50°c on sun.
I played a lot when the temperature was 27-30°c, well sometimes I still do. After one hour I'm dead. It's easier on clay because HC can really accumulate a lot of heat, but the points are longer on clay.
After 15 shots of a rally I just hit a dropshot or go for a crazy winner to end the point quickly and get some air again
This tactics has worked sometimes.
Tsonga next! Or is it?
