That's why it's annoying listening to the fanatical fans of Pete, Fed, Rafa & Nole try to pick apart their rivals mental game - when they've all proven to be more then capable - sometimes, no matter how good your game is, the guy across the way just happens to play better or have a point or two go more in their favor. No shame in that kind of defeat, Tennis has probably got to be one of the most mentally fatiguing sports to be a part of.
By the way I'm a huge Fed fan & have been coming around on the Nole/Tsonga/Del Po train, just hate discussing Tennis with some people because it gets more heated & personal then most team sports get. Shit's annoying.
