Nice thread.

 

So did anyone catch the match yesterday? First 4 sets were pretty tight. And first time I've seen Fedex lose a tie break. 5th set was Potro through and through

 

Plus Fedex's outburst at the chair umpire wasn't the best thing he did

lawn tennis is pretty tiring, especially during the learning phase. Carry a lot of tennis balls....unless you have a ball boy, you'll be spending most of your time fetching the ball.

awesome comeback by Del Potro... he looked down and out till it came to this one line call which the umpire called out and Del Potro challenged it and got it in his favor.. he won 8 points out of 10 after that and was fired up.. Federer let it slip
