That's actually how I always play, but it isn't working with Lendl. Closest I got was a 6-3 3-6 6-7 4-6 loss

You'll get him eventually! Try staying back until you've got a really good chance to put him away going forward. If you're staying back it's good practice for the later matches where positioning is even more important.

Re: My epic battle

Playing Lendl now for some fun, lets see how it goes. Haven't played this in a while.

I remember Agassi being the hardest though.

Re: My epic battle

3-6 6-4 3-6 1-6

Really mucked that up to be fair. Had a *2-0 lead in the first and then had *1-0 40-15 in the third and lost the next 4 points

Re: My epic battle

just beat cash in a fourth setter (my first match).

the third set was the deal breaker. i came back from a 0-3 deficit to take the set in an epic tiebreak 7-5. after that cash lost the momentum and i took the opportunity to break in the first game of the fourth set. from there on i just maintained my serve and it was a done deal.

please note how clutch i was at saving and converting break points

Re: My epic battle

Got past Moya and Goran. I handed Moya bagels in the 4th and 5th sets once I figured out to return against him. Goran was no problem, he never had a chance at breaking my serve.
