Re: David in INDIAN WELLS, CALIFORNIA, USA - MARCH 5-18, 2012?

David needs 2 improve his first serve ...
can you Dave plz?

almost all his wins due to "weak" second serve and long-long play... he is loosing so much energy; but he also needs sometimes "cheap points" like others do...
last Dave's match was not so bad, 75% win on first serve, 4 aces...

i think all top players are doing more than 75% on their first serves?
look f.e. Nadals's statistic, for last match - 96% win of first set points, Tipsarevich - 94% first serve win in his last match...
David needs to concentrate himself as much as possible to beat
tipsi tomorrow :)

Tipsy will be a difficult opponent for David, I'm afraid he could lose this time
