I would hate for Mertens to lose to this Halep today. Mertens is the one looking for winners, being aggressive, playing to win.
Darling Halep is just keeping the balls in play a la kerber. I hate that kind of game.

With the courts being slow, Halep just needs to backboard and wait. Why change a winning game?

lol, I think a balance is what is needed. Pushers are good for the game, we can't have people like Giorgi blasting their way through the draws with no thought in process :lol: :lol:
