He lost with Gastón today by 5-2 5-3. That score seems so weird!!!

The score is weird, yeah.
It's gonna take some time for us to get used to it.

Too bad they lost... :sad:
But now let's focus on the singles, shall we David? :)

I'm watching parts of the match with the livestream and I have a question, jazz_girl: I noticed David keeps passing the balls on his shirt before serving, does he always do this? Is it to make the balls wet and slower? Or is it just an habit, a tic?

I can't believe David lost the 2nd set! It looked like a solid match to me, he was serving pretty well – except on the matchpoints. :eek:
The Austrian commentator said he was "robbed" btw, but I didn't see this point (there was a very close ball on a matchpoint and the commentator thinks it was good, actually.)

I noticed it too! Maybe the court is too fast for him :confused:
David does that a lot...especially on a fast surface...I think Coria joked when they were playing the Davis Cup semi that David would have to do that with every ball....yes it makes them slower :D

I'd remembered reading that comment before the Davis Cup tie, and noticed him doing it quite a bit during his match with Hrbaty; I'd never really noticed one way or the other before then, but with it in mind it stood out. Coria reached a point against Hrbaty where he was giving it a try too.

I'm only half watching the match since I'm at work, and don't understand much German any more, but if the questionable point is the one I'm thinking, then I agree, at least through the somewhat broken up connection I'm getting at times.
