I fell asleep before the fourth set of the Misha/Stan match. Apparently I just really needed a nap. Imagine my surprise when I woke up three hours later to see that Rafa and Fernando were playing for a chance to play Misha in the semis. Like, whoa, dude!
I was totally shocked. I thought Stan had this in the bag. He was serving well and playing really smart in the super-windy conditions. But it sounds like the toll of his last two tough matches (4 setter over Moose, 5 setter over SamQ) finally set in. Sam got both his legs taped and was just a step too slow by the end.
