"I could have won the match if I had won the second set tiebreak. I think he (Almagro) would have broken down mentally in that case."
Ernie, how can you know or assume or predict that Almagro would have broken down mentally if you had won that tiebreak? Some players do (like someone I know
) and some regroup and even go on to win the match. That kind of thinking can cause you to play complacently in the next set thinking that the other guy is already "mentally beaten" but it ain't over till the last point is played.
Anyway, thanks Evita for the translation!
The best part is that he's giving interviews again. Yay! He sounds confident about his prospects, qualies and challengers notwithstanding. That's great!
