I think I'm gonna deal with it by taking the 4th round - - > SF improvement into account, along with the fact that he was surely gonna go down to Fed in the final.
It's just that pulling out the SF from 2 sets down would have been epic, and about the very real chance he had in the fourth, to lose that was very hard to watch.
I can't take it as well as I did the AO one though, 'cause I like Tsonga and was very happy for him. Also, his performance was absolutely sick.
Enjoy some rest, Rafa... and come back charged.
Yes it would've been wonderful if Rafa won this but i guess obviously he was mentally not as fresh as needed and i think even if he had won it today, no way he could've won the final with such form.
So searching for the bright side , Rafa had a very good run, took some points and hopefully he still has the ability to improve without too much pression if you get what i mean.
Rafael needs some rest and hopefully keeps going taking the positives of this.
As for murray, i 'm happy for him and he deserves a
but sadly, i don't think he'll be able to win. He still has problems with consistency. So Federer is to win it i guess and the wonderful lovely endless talks about the "real king" is to come again.
