That's probably the reason for the UE counts.
I see why the relatively high UE number in a fairly one-sided match.
W/UE: Nole 18/13, Feli 12-27. From corner to corner, 8 aces in the first set alone! Overall 12 aces, lost 7 pts on serve. I won't deny there are still some facepalm worthy moments though, I'm very impressed by his persistent efforts to improve his net game / serve. Keep on trying!
On the other hand I started to wonder seriously if it's too late to fix his overhead smash, just to a decent level. He looks more and more nervous with the shot nowadays. It's almost sad.
Next match, vs Tipsy or Haas. It won't be straightforward whomever he faces.
