Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 11

Set and break down, this is where Fognini starts playing I guess.

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 11

Monfils should really have broken this game - in every rally, but four poor UEs.

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 11

Nishi looking a bit more dynamic this game - trying to gee himself up to break and stay in the set?

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 11

Quite a contrast in effort and intensity atm - Nishi's head in the clouds a bit.

Re: Murray losing ground on the big three again?

That'd make a difference yes, but not a large one - especially in the case of Federer, he has had a lot of low ranked opponents in finals. The exact ordering of the top four would make no change to...

Re: Murray losing ground on the big three again?

Player / Mean / Median
Murray / 1.8 / 1.5
Nadal / 4.6 / 1.5
Djokovic / 4.9 / 2.0
Federer / 11.8 /...

Re: The reason Nadal is struggling is his new racquet

Babolat have a new racquet out. That means automatically that Nadal is said to be using it, even when everybody knows the pros' racquets are custom-made and nothing to do with those sold to the...

Re: Barcelona [R3]: Fognini def. Nadal 6-4 7-6(6)

Set1: Nadal depth control awful. Fog punished the short stuff very effectively and deserved the set.

Set2: Fog much less consistent, good patches but major lapses in concentration. Nadal tried to...

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 10

Impressive element today: Fognini's first serve. He's not made enough of them, but he's won 70% of points on it. Nadal gets almost no advantage on serve at all.

That and Nadal's awful performance on...

Chokey chokey from Fog. Not a good sign for his chances in the tiebreak.

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 10

He was there mid-set, but Nadal really let him off the hook when the double-break looked on.

At this rate it's going to be a surprise if Nadal holds at 5/6.

Nadal really trying to up the pace on his forehand ......... but these misses speak for themselves.

That's some backhand smash - those are so difficult.

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 10

ffs, loads of posts saying 0-40 before Nadal even served :-) My internet connection is awful today, seems to need to buffer it back for ages.

Yep, dancing feet from the Fog. Might have a chance at straight sets here.

Surprisingly easy hold to love - might be the fillip Fog needs.

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 10

Fog looking a bit tanky atm, but if he can hold on here, the score is still relatively tight.

Did look like he'd fought his way out then ......... but then relaxed and made three very quick errors to lose the game.

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 10

Nadal's depth control is all over the place. Fog is handling the heavier stuff well though, not letting himself get forced behind the baseline, and then taking advantage on the shorter balls.
