He's made it TOO close again, playing against someone ranked outside the top 70.
Carpet is ideal for the server, yes...but it doesn't matter if the server can't serve at all.
Now we don't want to jinx Andy here. Yes he's never lost so much as a set to Robredo in all of their previous meetings...but then again he wasn't playing like an ass. Just think Nalbandian, when Roddick used to crush him in straight sets, and then look what happened...
He needs to start off by being calmer on the court and not revert back to the 2001 version of himself throwing rackets when things aren't going his way. Brad...where are you???
