That's actually how I always play, but it isn't working with Lendl. Closest I got was a 6-3 3-6 6-7 4-6 loss

You'll get him eventually! Try staying back until you've got a really good chance to put him away going forward. If you're staying back it's good practice for the later matches where positioning is even more important.

Playing Lendl now for some fun, lets see how it goes. Haven't played this in a while.

I remember Agassi being the hardest though.

Default Re: My epic battle

just beat cash in a fourth setter (my first match).

the third set was the deal breaker. i came back from a 0-3 deficit to take the set in an epic tiebreak 7-5. after that cash lost the momentum and i took the opportunity to break in the first game of the fourth set. from there on i just maintained my serve and it was a done deal.

please note how clutch i was at saving and converting break points

Got past Moya and Goran. I handed Moya bagels in the 4th and 5th sets once I figured out to return against him. Goran was no problem, he never had a chance at breaking my serve.
