I mean, because of rain, he played 2 BO5 matches on consecutive days, they went 4 and 5 sets, the match vs Dimitrov went over 4 hours. Like none of this he've done before. Before this week he played one match that went over 3 hours in his career.Paul's conditioning is nowhere near the elite level, he looked gassed vs Dimitrov and I'm dead sure his body wasn't fully recovered for today's match. It's a whole different ballgame and Paul still isn't part of it.
Exactly, it's a complete new experience for him and he's not prepared for it. Even vs Dimitrov he looked on last legsI mean, because of rain, he played 2 BO3 matches on consecutive days, they went 4 and 5 sets, the match vs Dimitrov went over 4 hours. Like all of this he've never done before. Before this week he played one match that went over 3 hours in his career.
He is mentioned in sport headlines in the online press after each main draw wins. From 2nd round his rematch with Federer is highly anticipated in press after some close losses in the last year. I think journalists are hoping in close win now. But I don't feel real hype, probably only if he could be able to win against Federer. I personally prefer it as majority of Hungarian players doesn't cope well with high media pressure.how is he being treated by Hungarian press? Does he get the praise he deserves?
Fucsovics isn't known to beat players he's supposed to beat (he can lose to pretty much anyone), if anything the opposite.
