But he just can't seem to get past his mental block whenever he plays Nole. It's awful to watch. I lost all faith in him as a player. I just can't find myself to support him anymore. And by getting rid of the fan thing for Rafa I actually found myself enjoying tennis again, because I'm not annoyed whenever he loses now. I don't care. Plus, I've been busy with my master's thesis too. I haven't exactly had the time to follow much tennis lately with 10 hours working days. Whoever says students are lazy have NO IDEA what they're talking about. I am stressed as hell!
Anyway... sorry for going off topic there, now onto what matters: Davis Cup and Canada
I'm very pleased with Vasek's performance today! He may not have played his best, but he won, which is the most important thing. He really hung in there and fought hard for his country. He made Canada proud today! And to get such a win on Israeli soil against Sela is not an easy accomplishment at all. What he did was one of his best wins ever imo. Sela is a good player, and they played in Israel with a very biased crowd. Seems like Vasek has got a good game these days. And to fight for a win when you're not playing you're best.. that's what separates the best players from the second best. Seems like Vasek is mentally strong in matches. And that will pay off as he plays more matches on the ATP tour against the top ranked players. He can do some amazing stuff if he fights hard and stays mentally strong and at the same time that he approves his game
He is not a fully developed player yet, and still has a long way to go, but it's a good start I think.
