Anyone else watching this match? It's turning out to be quite a good 'un. Guga a set up breaking Tommy in the last game of the first set (Tommy double faulted on breakpoint). Guga's movement to the right is noticeably impaired and yet he's doing his damndest to reach everything and he's playing as well as I've seen over the last year. Everything is flowing again on his groundstrokes and his tennis brain is working overtime coping with the adjustments he has to make for his movement.

In the second set Guga's service games have all being hard fought. Tommy is definitely making a concerted effort to pull Guga wide onto the FH side. Still Guga seems to find a serve when he needs one.. or a brilliant BH/FH to dash Tommy's hopes yet again. Tommy looks fitter though. I hope Guga pulls this one out in 3.

(As an aside, if only Gonzalez had Guga's brain) :).

Re: Guga V Tommy

Last two Guga service games, he's been down 15-40 and come back to deuce both times. Tommy must be p***** off. I have to say I admire Tommy but I love Guga :).

6-5 Guga in the second!

I'm watching it. It's turned out to be a VERY good one. I want Tommy to win but it's good to see Guga back to something like his old self. Great atmosphere around the court too.

Re: Guga V Tommy

Guga lost 2nd set on tiebreak. Not unexpected given the ease with which Tommy was holding his serve and Guga struggling to do so. 1 set a piece and everything to play for.

Guga's been touching a lot his lower back, I hope it's not hurting him much, and that he can keep fighting...Vamos Guga!!!

Re: Guga V Tommy

I hope he will keep fighting. Physio called out though. Looks like treatment on back/hip. Looks like he's in pain :(. It's a shame to see what Guga's been through over the last two years not just as a tennis player but as a person. For all he's done for others, he deserves better.

Re: Guga V Tommy

he's just going to have to go for his shots and make a whole bunch of them. Guga has the groundstrokes to make this a very short two sets if everything goes in. even now I can't think of anyone who hits a better one handed BH. I'd have to go all the way back to Edberg to find one better.
