Most sports are played in the head tbf. Tennis massively when it comes to huge points. Nerves get me when I play my mate for fun. God knows what the pros feel like!
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.
Laura 'The Legend Killer' Robson strikes again. Great win, made even better by her awful form lately. Beating Radwanska who is so consistent in making few mistakes is incredible. I hope she can progress further. A British female doing well on clay would be lovely. Go on girl!
