    Martin Damm had a MP at 8-7, 40-30 in the 3rd set and missed an easy winner. Ended up losing 0-6, 6-1, 10-8 in the boys SF's.

    Will have an American in the girls final though.

    Good thing I have to head to the fucking airport at 1130. Already told the wife we are getting posted up at a sports bar immediately.

    RBA finds a break in the 2nd.

    Play stopped briefly, fan in some distress courtside.

    We are about a set away from the Ump's shirt failing and getting a free boob shot.

    Djokovic and Federer’s ability to hit the ball wherever they want especially while in the run amazes me

    RBA's posse seems much more subdued than the super wild group Delpo had at the Open.

    They probably have received numerous lessons on proper behavior for the venue.

    True. They also just looked like a bunch of dads, which is very RBA.

    Lmao, I was thinking the same thing, regarding both your posts. But working with Brits every day I’m 100% certain they received kind suggestion on proper behavior.

    Big-time hold under pressure to close out the set for RBA, helped by a friendly net-cord.

    it is funny how much it irks Novak that he isnt truly loved by the fans like other players

    still laugh at Kyrgios' comments on him being inauthentic

    Sterling A Uh, apology accepted, ass-douche

    honestly, do you think he expects to be the fan favorite after Nadal and Fed hang it up? Cause I don't see that either. He will be remembered for what he achieved and an amazing player, but loved? Seriously doubt it

    My favorite part of Nick's answer that got overlooked by the rest of the comments:

    "Simply because I've played him twice and like, I'm sorry, but if you can't beat me, you're not the greatest of all time. Because if you like look at my day-to-day routine and how much I train and how much I put in, it's zero compared to him.

    Yep, no chance he is going to be a fan favorite even when he has the stage to himself. You can tell it bothered him these Wimby fans are pulling for the Agut upset. Imagine when its a 23 yr old young gun.

    I dont think he expects it, but I think winning motivates him to force the fans to momentarily embrace him.

    I think fed needs to attack the 2nd serve and get to the net. Get nadal out of his rhythm and take it to him.

    Is anyone in here rooting for nadal?

    You can see the slow play in the grass has affected Fed's serve by a wide margin. Lot lesd aces and unreturned serves. Whoa

    idk what to make of this start

    I feel like both are shaky, but Fed looks to have it together more than Rafa.

    Could be a Rafa 1st set tiebreak, then Fed comes out and grabs an early 2nd set break of service.

    Why is ESPN so far behind? Its like 4-5 mins behind. Not LIVE at all, seeing twitter updates that its 3-2 in games when its 15-0 and 2-2 on ESPN

    Second time this week that Fowler has mentioned Thiem in the NextGen. He’s 25, almost 26.

    He honestly looked incredibly uncomfortable the entire set if he wasn’t winning cheap points off of his serve. Similar to the AO final where he was spraying the ball all over the place and hitting way too many short balls.
