I think he was nervous, he was making so many errors early in the match. So I'm sure that's part of it, but yeah. It's just so huge for him in particular.
Yep.

What all this year? he hasn't gotten past the 2nd round since the OLYMPICS.

I've seen Mardy play enough to believe that his first serve % is almost singularly determinative of how he plays. It's scary, actually. There are definitely other factors and other problems with his game, but when his first serve % is high, the rest of his game is there, and vice versa. It happens much too often to be coincidental.

but on a positive note! Flake win 3-6 7-6(0) 6-2!!!!! Mardy lost his serve like the first 4 times he served but once they settled down they did great. Go Flake!
