    The only strange thing is the performance of CL. Perhaps a sign of his youth.
    As mentioned by others, it's a weird match because LD has changed his usual attacking style to a more conservative and patient style to match his progressing years, but he's still able to up the pace when he needs to get the job done. Boring to watch, yes, but a necessary adjustment for him to last till Rio 2016.

    In the papers yesterday, LCW will be entering politics after retirement - so no problem for the great
    man in future - hopefully he joined the right party and become the Minister of Sports.

    Being a sporting personality is not a good grounding for politics where people are out to scrutinise every word you utter.

    Can't be many examples of sports persons turned established politicians - Lord Coe is one example.

    Marc Zwiebler suffered the similiar scenario against DPY in Lining SO 2013 too. BTW AC is not switched off.

    Anyway, such scenario do happens in any sports. May the stronger player wins.

    1. The conspiracy is there. It's just you who can't see it.
    2. If that's the case, surely after this whoever has the world title should be given wildcard just to be fair. Men's Double Olympic Gold Medalist on 2008 should be given a chance also IMO. Why MK/HS don't deserve the same thing? Why aren't they even listed in the draw? Because of MK's wife gave birth? Yeah right....

    What on earth did the guy do to your sorry arse? He's lost and he can choose which ever way he wanted to lose it. I don't get it. Why a super fan of LD came here and mock a 'friend' of LD? LD's been trying to show the world both of them are best friends.

    Cramp during competition is not uncommon in sports, but there are many reasons for it. Yet claiming that a top players fitness be easily gone by a single match is unbelievable...

    More the other way around - no sport (apart from American Football) has as many breaks as Tennis. In addition, Tennis players get a break day between matches, so there's really no comparison.
    There had been a study comparing MS players in both Tennis and Badminton (distance run, time played, breaks), and it really didn't look so hot for the Tennis players, although one has to admit that it's an old one and the game has changed since then.
    Also, didn't Nadal take like an 8-month-break after his match against Djokovic at the AO? I'm pretty certain he would not laugh at LCW for being spent after 2 tought matches in a row.

    Cramps suffered by players are associated with their fitness level.
    The not so fit players tend to get cramp if they play too much with too short resting time.
    Or was it like a race car with too much octane that blew a ring? LOL

    Cramps are also associated with athletes losing too much minerals by sweating, which basically results in disruptions of the brain's signals. Afaik, medicine isn't quite clear on what exactly causes cramps. Some people seem to have a tendency towards them while others don't - similar to migraines, I believe. However I don't recall there being an explanation for why that is so.
    I, for example, can not remember ever getting a 'real' cramp - part of my calf muscle hardened and ached at times, but I never had one so bad I fell down and couldn't move or sth, no matter how hard I trained or pushed myself in competition.
