Re: The Madrid Cheering Thread - Let's Forget the Bad Stuff and Talk about Tennis Instead
I got home at 4-4 in the 1st set so managed to watch most of the match. What dtiger says is true - Mariano played at a very high level in the 1st set (especially in the tie-break) but he seemed to get tired and lose a little focus in the last 2 sets. But this loss was no disgrace and nothing to be ashamed of because Ferrer played extremely well. He is a real fighter - he chased after everything and never EVER gave up (kudos to him), - and with the crowd behind him he managed to get the victory. All in all it was a great match - well done David and good luck for the rest of the tournament - and commmisterations to Mariano - good luck in Lyon.
