I haven't seen the match yet so I can't yet commiserate with your frustration and disappointment Carol and Linda. But based upon the scoreline David did himself, his coach, and his fans proud. He made Murray work......hard. What happened in that third set? Murray was obviously on fire but how did David let that entire set go? I'll have my answer later if you folks are too upset to answer.
David is gutted for sure but Piles has the right attitude and will pass that on to Ferru. Look at the larger picture ladies - the more practice he gets playing the likes of Murray, Fed, Djoko, and Rafa (notice I don't put Berdych and Sod in that group) the more knowledge he takes away to use for the next time. And there WILL be a next time for a semi if he keeps playing at this level. He's # 6 now and we're approaching clay season. I hope against all the odds that he'll be able to achieve the same and more at the French Open.
