down the line from either player (this surprised me, because i expected tons of them from Gaudio). But the crosscourt backhand rallies were very fast paced, and it would have been dangerous to change direction too much. i guess it paid off...
Andre's mobility was impressive in this match.
He made some great shots, but also a few poor ones. Gaudio's defense was good, so points often went on quite a while. Andre was mentally tough when it counted, but I would have preferred that he convert more break points, and hold serve more securely!
