hi people! i know i dont post here, but i got live coverage of the france-sweden action! (and i dont even live in these 2 countries
in the 1st match, simply, pimpim was bad. his serve was off, his forehand was blasting errors everywhere, and he just didnt look comfortable. mathieu on the other hand, was clearly in his element. he had a wide array of shots, made pimpim run everywhere, and his serve, was better than pimpim.
but in the 2nd match, there was no doubt tojo would win even after being down a break in the 3rd. grosjean had some occasional good shots, but tojo played a game that was tactically sound. tojo was afraid to prolong the rallies till grosjean made an error. by the end of the 1st, it was obvious that grosjean was getting down on himself, which made things easier for tojo.
and my camera was perpetually going over to pimpim during tojo's match, so i saw him loads
he def looked cold, and was talking throughout the match to jonas. u can really see the camaraderie on the swedish team
