Just to be clear. I was commenting on his strategy choices and defending the choices he was making. But to answer your question, if I can’t comment on a tennis match then how many people on the planet can?

And Novak felt that which is why he went Huge on the next 2 shots. Did he miss? Yes. Does he clearly agree with me that it’s the only way to win by taking the chance? Yes

Buddy, he won 2 games in the first 14 games. He might have won 25% of points less than 4 shots, but it wouldn’t have been much better in points of greater than 4 shots either.

First 2 sets were a lack of execution. He’s gaining confidence right now and still swinging away. Making this set way more competitive. Will be tough to keep up, but I think it’s the only way here

Thanks for your stat. Watch the match please. What is he doing? Is he playing safer or swinging out? Okay thanks

It’s all about court position right now. He has to find a way to control the baseline. If he’s too far back he can’t hurt Nadal enough

As I just mentioned. Why don’t you watch the match and see what Novak does this set. I guarantee you he does not back up and play safer

I know what it’s like to play against Rafael Nadal. If you play further back and safer, he’s not going to miss and he will break down everyone, especially on clay. Clearly, Novak agrees with me. Which is why he is doing what I suggested and not your suggestion of playing safe.

Totally agree with you. I think in these conditions in order to get a win he will have to take some chances

No worries always happy to discuss. I don’t think that’s correct but we can agree to disagree

Although this theory was speculated by some, as you can see that is not the case. Nadal is totally comfortable and is still able to create plenty of power. Novak is searching for answers, playing drop shots, and going bigger/ closer to the line than normal. Very clear so far

Yes they are. No one feels great when it’s cold but Nadal’s style is more adaptable to the cold. Novak is battling and is in the final despite this being the worst conditions for him. But Rafa is right in his element

Novak’s biggest strength is his ability to play very close to the baseline and take time away from you. These slow conditions aren’t giving him the normal payoff so He’s having to find alternative ways to win points which is why you’re seeing so many drop shots

Being on has to be the best job on the planet. I’ve never envied someone else’s profession as much as I do every Saturday morning watching these guys. Looks like a blast
