re: Tennis Discussion Thread
The 1st and the 2nd sets were very good. Nole started well, and you thought he would take it. But then he missed an easy smash, and Del Potro took over. He played very well. Served well, over powering Nole from the baseline, and not missing much. He carried that momentum into the 2nd set, where he broke early. But Nole broke back straight away, and turned momentum back to his side. Djokovic then won the 2nd set, and had momentum on his side. Del Potro was drained in the 3rd, and started making stupid errors he wasn't making before. That, mixed in with some great play by Nole meant that the 3rd set went to Nole easily.
I still think that Nole would have won, even if Del Po didn't tire in the 3rd, but i don't think it would have been the blowout it turned out to be in the end.
