...how much Pat McEnroe seems to think that players will get tired from a few four set matches? He's said this about Safin and someone else recently (I forget ). What does this say about the men's fitness if they can't handle a couple four-setters in a tournament that has been decently cool when compared to past tournaments?

i think he's gone a but crazy with all these 3 set breezers that he thinks a 4 set match implies that the better player was off his game, which certainly isn't always the case. remembere when you could play well and have a 5 setter? i think he only brought up such a thing bc it's been rare and it does somewhate differentiate players... but 4 sets vs 3 sets in these temperatures really isn't bothersome. he's creating a problem that isn't there.
