Re: Odd opponents you've had?
Played a couple of days ago against a pretty weird opponent. He's a top table tennis player here in Finland and played the part... Lots of slicing off both wings, constantly gave me different ball. It was pretty tiring mentally and physically, having to concentrate 110% on each shot, keeping eyes firmly on ball and bending the knees in case of a low bounce. Our match ended in a draw (our time ran out), with me leading 7-6. I was up a break a couple of times but he managed to bounce back if I had even a momentary lapse in concentration. I also managed to come back after a break once.
Good thing I played alright, not great but alright, since if I had had a bad day, I would've self-destructed probably.
After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014
lol, who will beat him? Wawrinka? Berdych? Gulbis? Rosol? Federer?
Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
