During a battle one (the winner) of two fighter tells the other (or I should say the other one?)

" I never expect that after 30 hits your sword was 3 inches less than mine"

My attempt of translation

"Non mi sarei mai atteso che dopo 30 colpi, la tua spada fosse ??? 30 pollici meno della mia"

It could be


" I never expect that after 30 hits your sword was 3 inches (near) less than mine"

i.e.



"Non mi sarei mai atteso che dopo 30 colpi, la tua spada fosse 3 pollici meno vicina della mia"

In fact consider that in this particular moment the two fighters are pointing the sword at the throat of the other but one is nearer than the other

Please let me know

Thanks again.

    Dove hai trovato questa frase? E' stata scritta da una madrelingua inglese?! Mi suona un po' strana..
