He did not believe in it, and without conviction you can't win. Always the weaker one on the important points, and seriously in trouble on the return.
Djoko's ball bouncing caused a lot of trouble for Paulo simply because it gave him time to think... especially on the important points. But I can't blame the Serb for that.
Paulo wasn't anywhere near his best today. But it's alright, I see a clear horizon. DC took a lot out of him, but he's getting himself back on track. And he gets his fans (at least me!) back on track too!
Paulo said prior to this match that if he could play like he played against Schwank (the first two sets), he would have had a chance. But he didn't. That's pretty much the story.
Still, a big thanks to Paulo and Mats for a great week. It's been FUN
