A quick post in transit from London to Santiago via Houston and Lima.
Last night, after our all day ITF Seniors meeting (quite interesting), I went to the O2 again with my colleague, Sergio Elias. We didn’t get to see the doubles, our meeting finished just as it began, but finally saw a competitive match between Wawrinka and Cilic. Wawrinka only needed to win three games, which he did quickly, breaking and holding for 3/1 but that was the only break of the set and there weren’t any more till Wawrinka played an awful game at 45 to lose the set. The third set was weird…Wawrinka had double break in the first game, played a tight forehand (erred) on the first one, then Cilic caught a little US Open magic and broke. Wawrinka though broke right back on multiple errors by Cilic, held and broke again at 3-3. The round robin portion of this event fittingly ended with a double fault by Cilic.
