His powerful serve bailed him out a ton, but I think his stretching out for usual winners and wide retrieval threw off the traditional tommy. He just made haas hit hat extra ball and it saved him a lot, the defense won him the 2nd set. You didn't see the 0-40 tommy choke. Gael couldn't buy a first serve and tommy was just trying to be too fine with his backhand. Then he just giftwrapped the break.
