Yes, they did.Deserves a thread. They didn't surpass Del Potro-Federer at Olympics did they?
At least the 4.5 hours was spread over two days. His schedule isn't really any different than playing 3 set matches for 4 consecutive days. Not ideal but he shouldn't be completely shattered.Happy for Andrea. Don't know if he'll be able to put up a fight against Trungelliti, though...
I am not too sure. This match was spread over two days, which facilitates recovery. Trungelliti also rarely wins more than two matches in a row. His game is also not based on dragging out the rallies. And he has never played in a Grand Slam MD before, so there will be nerves. Arnaboldi has shown he can handle the nerves in this match and already qualified last year. And he's fit.More than the length is the pressure you feel in such a set that makes you feel even more tired
in normal conditions Arnaboldi would have been fav vs Trungelliti. Now is the other way around
