David does seem to be playing better now, more solid in his groundstrokes but still not taking charge of the points. In fact, I'd say he's currently playing his best tennis of the match (comparatively).
Hi, everybody. I left home this morning, David down 6-4 2-0, and fully expected this match to have ended as I arrived to work this morning. When I checked the scoreboard again-approximately 30 minutes later-I saw that David won five of the last six games and was on a roll in the final set.
Judging from the outcome, David won twelve of the last fourteen games-and must have been playing much better than before. He ended the match with a 53% first serve, up from that dismal 38% he recorded at the beginning of the second set.
Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.
Granollers had 6:4, 2:0. David began to serve better and was a lot more patient, constructing points instead of trying to hit winners. Granollers' movement wasn't the same after the second set.
It was a very good third set from David. Though what I liked the most was how he started to approach the match tactically, more patient like you said and playing much more of a claycourt style of match. Which I think is much better than how he played yesterday, in what was basically hit-and-miss kind of tennis to beat Mathieu in the end.
