Impressive defense, but any player with some volleying skills would
have won (or cut short) many of these long impressive points.

Verdasco had some success stealing in to finish off points at the net
earlier in the match but didn't do this much towards the end - that

How great thou art.
How I fear for poor Roger
singed as a moth by a flame
before the brightness of thy glory."
