You keep feeding the player the hopeless attitude that it's too slow, then there's no more chance.
Only dreams to win.
Nadal is supposed to do well here but obviously he couldn't grind out in the finals. It takes more than
quick serve winners and longer rallies to win titles.
If you don't move well enough, cute backhands and mediocre volleys do nothing (even if you won the event 3 times).
Haas changes his mind in the 2nd set, then hesitates at net. He's scared that he can't serve & return even though Ferrer's 3 feet behind the baseline. No focus.
I didn't even understand your 1st sentence, but nevermind you are off topic again.
About the match, Haas wasn't scared, he simply couldn't serve, 2nd and 3rd set his 1st service was below 25-30% which is ridiculous. And all of those that went in, Ferrer came up with amazing returns.
Also Haas's volleys are way over mediocre level, one of the best on tour. He doesn't do too many S&V this year, but that doesn't prove anything. His touches on the net are simply brilliant.
You can't win if you don't move enough here, I agree. And Tommy more than proved that he can move well, as much in this match and also in his previous matches especially vs Simon where you need to move well.
The low angle camera shows perfectly how slow this court is and how Tommy doesn't like high bouncing balls.
If this was faster court, he would have AT LEAST confirmed his breaks in the 3rd set. If this was Halle, he wouldn't give any chance of Ferrer breaking back 2 times in the row, not even with his 2nd serve.
Why? Because his style of game even considering he is all around player, more benefits from faster surfaces.
