3 hours 49 mins match. Wild was twice a break up in first set. He was also 3-0 adv up in the 3rd and then went a break down. High drama. Fokina under arm serves infuriated the fans. Lost 1 point more in the match.
Fokina is playing the drop shot WAY too often, to the point where it looks like he is taking the piss. He played over 40 drop shots vs Horansky in Barcelona CH, he lost the match by having a meltdown in the 3rd set tiebreak.I watched the first set of this drama and when you see first game of the match with 9 deuces - you know that it's going to be crazy. Fokina is fucked up in the head, he played at least 10 dropshots and one underarm serve in the 1st set only. Very high energy match with some wild winners and some mistakes from the primary school. I was expecting more from both, but drama must have made up for it.
