    Fognini is a set away from winning a Masters 1000. What a world we live in.

    wasn't around much this weekend but Fabio beating nadal the other day has to be the biggest upset of the year (if rafa is healthy, a BIG if after this performance)

    will be hard to top this upset the rest of the year tbqh

    Time for those on the ATP board to take a stand and show what they're made of. But I suspect they won't.

    Sasha Zverev's disaster 2019 continues. After taking a wildcard in Barcelona to try and get some wins, he goes from a set up to losing in 3 to lucky loser Nicolas Jarry.

    It's really jarring to see Rafa searching for his clay game like this.

    hes not healthy, its obvious. Usually he takes 3-4 months off at least everytime his knee flares up, this time he took about 5 weeks off

    It's definitely the health as part of it, but he looks off mentally too. He's flat, there's no emotion or anything.
