This sort of match is exactly what the tournament didn't need on a day like today.

Out of curiosity, do you think that professional tennis players, especially the rhythm and flow players should do much thinking on court?
Coincidentally, I don't think they should, because I feel that thinking just gets in the way for them. Not because they're dumb, but simply once a player like that starts thinking, it messes everything from shot execution to footwork, up. Their minds and what their body and muscles have been trained to execute on auto-pilot through millions of repetitions will not be on the same page anymore and that's when it gets really ugly and messy for players like Li, Cirstea or Berdych (among many others, even someone who has often been praised for his thinking on the court like Federer).
