Malisse is also a capabale player, but the main difference I see in Novak and Malisse is the mental toughness. Malisse maybe lost the whole match with just ONE SINGLE point. He was serving at *4-5 and 15-0, then he hit a crap forehand and was upset with himself. As the ballpersons threw a ball to him he smashed it upwards to the roof and from thereon it went down with Malisse's game. Tommy broke for the set and made five games in a row until Malisse called the trainer in the 2nd set, down 0-3.
Not sure what happened there
So Tommy had a relatively easy win, very uncontested in the 2nd set. At the end he even could afford getting down 0-40 when serving for the match....
