Rafa played a very good match until the end of the third where he was broken serving for the match and staying
in the set losing 4 straight games. Stayed on court for an hour more than required.
+ FH was excellent. Firing most of the time and deep until the end of the third.
+ Movement was good.
+ Defence was as good as the first 4 matches. Absolutely Solid.
- Serve. He has now been broken in the first set of all the four matches having a double break.
- BP Ratio 9/21. (Some saves were great play by Sock)
- Lesser confidence and shots lacking firepower and depth as match progressed.
Sock had a few solid FH winners and a some beautiful net play. He was brilliant at the end of the third. Serve failed him(Too many DFs and gifting breaks with it.) and too many FH errors.
Rafa received 2 Time Violations warning and losing first serve for the second warning. Coincidentally both came at BPs. Though he was over the time limit lot more than that.
