Serious question......I've noticed for a few years now....while watching doubles matches (I've been watching mixed doubles laterally this afternoon) when the players talk to each other between points they cover their mouths. Is there any practical reason for this cos for the life of me I can't work this out! I'm presuming it is not to allow their utterances be 'understood'....but by whom ? Just wondering.
This match is currently the 7th longest in history. The thing is, both players look stronger on their serve the longer it goes on because both players are too knackered to return effectively. They need to introduce 5th set tie-breakers.
I was pleased Djokovic won, but it was just a shame the final was so poor, but it was to be expected really after all the hours that Anderson had spent on court. I can see Djokovic going on to win many more slams over the next few years now.
