I usually hate clay tennis, but my mind is changing rapidly.

It's a bit like that old saying in football - you're most vulnerable after you've just scored. It's the same for most sports I guess, when you make a breakthrough (especially after trying for ages to do so) it's natural for concentration levels to drop.

And I've seen Andy breaking back right back half the times if not more. Very good strategy.

Wonder though if Zeballos will get a win here. May go all mental at the right time. That will be his biggest testament in this match. He looks to me as the better player right now.

And you will be in love with it once Andy wins either RG or a clay tournament at the least. Gloryhunter! lol

He was 40-0 down and still wants to game. Great mental state.

Clay tennis can be quite exciting to watch when you have players who are great at utilising the slice and various spins. I think we tend to be biased because Andy struggles a bit more and his matches tend to be more frustrating. The match against Troicki at Monte Carlo was really enjoyable.

I don't think it's so much a strategy as one player relaxing a tiny bit and the other getting fired up. Certainly happens quite often though. I think Andy broke back instantly in all of his first three matches in Melbourne, and he got broken a fair few times in those games.

I just managed to watch the 2nd set. It's tough for Rafa and Zeballos is playing great.
Pity I have to go to bed now, am working early tomorrow. Frown
