Sam was up 2-love and then something happened, he lost his verve and Alves won the first set 6-4. Are you kidding me?
The Brazilian supporters in Jacksonville are far outperforming the American fans, in terms of passion and energy.
Right now, Alves, winner of two career ATP level matches, is looking like a mini Nadal. Sam is obviously feeling the pressure.
If Brazil closes this out, it could be the biggest shock in tennis history since a guy named Lukas Rosol annihilated Nadal last summer…
