He has been playing offensive tennis most of his matches this summer. I mean, it's a really stark contrast from the way he was playing against Simon and Mayer: he was practically hitting moonballs for much of the first set of this match. He just wasn't constructing points toward an end that set, even on his own serve. Looks like things are going his way now though.
