    Lot of young guys making a rankings push. Good to see.

    Andreescu got a decent draw. Begu first round then probably cibulkova. In Sloane quarter

    Ehn. I think she'll get through to the quarters fairly comfortably. And if Sloane's not on (or out by then), even deeper into the tournie.

    We'll see. Vika's playing as good of tennis as we've seen from her in a while, Garbine on a good day can beat her and Bertens plays her super close if I'm remembering correctly.

    Maybe. I just don't think any of them are the type of player that bother Williams too much. If there was a Kerber or Kvitova in her way, that would be different. I think Garbine's the only one with a real chance to beat her (before the quarters).

    sad that he wasted ALL that time and/or had very bad doctors tell him to just rest, SMH. Hope he can come back 100% though

    the American tennis apparatus ridding itself of Gimelstob should have been such an easy decision. He has no business casting any votes: because of his transgressions + bc of his incompetency.

    the people in charge are just too comfortable within their own mediocrity; and Gimelstob is the face of that lack of ambition. The whole system needs shaking up.

    FAA was a dog today. I thought he'd win but I also thought I'd catch some of the match. Got tied up for work and it's already over but I will take my money, thank you.

    I did not, just saw the score. That’s disappointing, yet not surprising, sadly.

    The wind definitely lowers the quality but Sloane definitely quit.

    Fritz is playing like garbage. I like Steve Johnson anyway and want him to win but Fritz just doesn't impress me at all.

    Fritz is very much a “see him on the right night” kind of guy to me. When he’s got it going, you can kinda see the path to being good. But if he’s not, it’s a mess.

    FAA grabs an early break and makes it last, taking the first set from Tsitsipas 6-4. Wow.

    He just kicked Stefanos' ass. That wasn't close, and Stefanos didn't play poorly at all.

    He’s got all the talent in the world. So excited for the future.

    Only 2 males in top 100 as teens (Shapo and FAA) and the #2 ranked female teenager (Bibi)

    The future is amazing

    Stefanos made 85% of his first serve and Felix broke him 3 times. That’s incredible
