I was very happy when Wawrinka defeated Medeved in R4. I was dreaming for Nole - Stan final then. I was actually rooting for Stan. Had Stan reached AO final, I believe he would have won.
Thiem missed like 90% of his BHDTLs today, so if anything he went for it too much. I think he missed 10 straight at some point.Woulda coulda shoulda is the mother of futility exercises, but one thing I am sure of is that Stan would not be so hesitant to pull the trigger DTL. Whether that would have been enough or not in his current state is impossible to say.
She had and still has it in her signature, why is it any surprise to you?You’re a closet Wawrinkatard?
Not so sure, in Wawrinka's current state it could have been a 5 setter with Djokovic, which could go easily one way or the other.For sure, but he was physically done after the Medvedev match so he never really had a chance to reach the F.
Zverev also not beating Djokovic easily with his mental midgetry and subpar return (47/144 receiving points won vs Thiem). How many times did he break Thiem in the semi? 5/14 with the Austrian serving only 67% 1st serves.Better question is if Zverev would've beaten Djokovic today. I think yes.
Because he was hitting them out of position off the back foot or from some weird no man's land areas. But when he had the entire wing open or when Djokovic was at the net he either sliced it back or hit to the body.Thiem missed like 90% of his BHDTLs today, so if anything he went for it too much. I think he missed 10 straight at some point.
This was the biggest difference today.The difference of their BHDTL between Thiem and Wawrinka is immense.
Some of those BHDTL wild errors that Thiem made today were really costly. Wawrinka's hit % would be much higher.
That’s why the h2h is 19-6 for Djokovic, clearly it’s always up to only Stan who wins. These Fedal fans are hurting so bad at the moment it’s hilarious actually.Stan would have straight setted this mug level performance from Novak’s tonight.
It’s strange but Novak has far more trouble against players other than Roger/Rafa. Perhaps it’s mental letdown or laziness? With Stan tho, there’s not much Novak can do. The match is on Stan’s racket when they play, and he’s tough enough mentally to not choke
