Apart from that, throughout the second set I kept asking myself not only how he could possibly take that match to a third set. But also whether he'd be fit enough for a third set...
It is been awhile since he turned a match around, lately everyone is turning around matches against him.
Even if he somehow managed to get into the third set, with this play the outcome would have depended on Troicki to lose it, not on David to win it. Lets face it, he was simply pathetic today in all areas, no serve, UEs from both wings, he was even awful at net.
