R2: Nadalesque def. Mario (2) 6/4 7/5
Ok, I gotta say few things. Everyone will agree it's physically impossible to hit a winer from baseline(especially with 65% on bh & 70% on fh). We used to have 100% on both fh &bh and I was still struggling but this....this is really impossible. I tried simply everything from baseline, playing short, top spin, 5-6 hard accelerations in a row but I think I won 0 points from the baseline. Next thing is serve, my strongest was 190 if I remember correctly. We both had 0 aces(yes z-e-r-o). He played with big amount of spin and I was pretty lucky that I actually won 9 games against him. The only thing that worked is serve & volley, I hope this game won't turn like in TE2006 where 99% of players played serve & volley. That was pretty boring. One more thing is funny, the amount of errors. I think we both had like 2 times more errors than winners which is also shit. I'm playing this game for 8 years now and I have to say I'm not happy at all with these new settings. I had shitloads of wins & losses so I'm not really crying now only because 1 loss. I'll play few more tournaments and if it all stays the same I'll just leave quietly like I always did.
About the game: First I had 3 break points in 1 game but I missed them all, he broke me the very next game and he took the set. 2nd set he broke me at 2/2. He was serving for a match at 5/4 where he had 2 match points but I saved them both and I managed to re-broke him for 5/5. Unfortunately I lost my next service game & after that a whole match. Congrats on the win, he's a fair player good luck in tournament.
Need geographical tour asap.
