Half the crowd went up to him just to congratulate him on struggling through the heat, and still giving us a damn good match. You guys should all be proud of him.
Awww... thanks for your report!
Don't worry, you can come here as many times as you wish!
The heat was dreadful, I'm glad you were able to enjoy tennis in spite of those conditions!
