I wonder if MVG wishes he'd kept that performance for the final and has peaked too soon. It's unlikely he will pull off that average tonight. Still though, its going to take a huge effort to beat him.
7-5 to MVG, 180s record in final to be broken.
He probably knows he won't need to throw that sort of average tonight. If he can play to anywhere near that standard for 4 sets it will probably be enough. Anderson has never been great when he goes behind early in a match, Anderson needs to take 1 of the first 3 sets imo.
