Good job Novak. That break was not entirely altruistic, but I guess it's becoming more commonplace now. Nadal did the same in Canada this year. The cramping is a bad rule, but Novak's exception is asthma, which I can relate to. You get these bad cramps when you start to lose your breathing, and there is no controllable way of preventing this other than with rest.

Nice to see them hug at the net. I think Novak cheated a little, but he did out play Monfils for most of the match.

Well the trainer took a while to get to the court and yes the rule is bad and still sucks. Yes, he has major breathing problems, but as for whether he is acting I will have to match to say clearly for sure.

great, great match. These guys will be top 10 very soon. Novak has just a killer forehand and Gael is so athletic and long and tenacious. Too bad one of them had to lose but Novak deserved it.

He actually said that he used all the time-outs that he could...but he justified himself by saying that he was really tired

Breathing problems and asthma bring on horrible cramps because you can't get oxygen to the blood. unfortunately, there is no control for this other than an inhaler with him at all time, and most of the best treatments are banned steroids.
