Well, Costa is a fighter. He oftens comes back from a one set deficit in Best of Three matches and especially from two sets behind in Best of Five matches. He has a record for that. So I don't think he gave up. It certainly doesn't look like that.

'AceMaan' , seeing Lleyton go down today , it doesnt seem so impossiible that Fed could be shocked by the Russian dog. Afterall 'Dav' did win Late last year , who would have guessed that? Reading his match report , it was full of praise for Davs gritty fighting game + in his after match interview he acknowledged his commitment to close matches had improved. Dav also did OK at the US open , quality of game wise. Maybe he is a different player than he was a year ago.
