    Plays #1 at Georgia Tech where he’s been very good. He’s just a shot-maker, but also outhit Thanasi from the baseline at times last night which is pretty impressive.

    Man this morning mladenovic faced six match points. She was down 5-2 in the third, had 21 double faults and then won the 3rd set TB.

    Also some of her serves were hilariously bad. Like not even remotely close. Both first and second serves, didn’t matter, it was great.

    Edit: Also her serve got worse as the match progressed. Absolutely amazing that she won.

    Kyrgios wins Washington without dropping serve. Unbelievable level from him. Also in the doubles finals.

    Shapo/de Minaur is good. Awful shot choice from shapo to lose set 1.

    Shapo is a fucking mess right now.

    Since making the QF at Rome, he is 1-8.

    Losses to Ruud, Ivashka, Rune on Clay
    Losses to Otte, Paul, Bonzi and Nakashima on Grass. Beating Rinderknech in 5 sets.
    Loss to JJ Wolf in Washington last week.

    Im going to say something a little crazy but bare with me. Mid Week Masters 1000s 1 week tournaments might be the best tennis of the year.

    The matchups in Round of 32 and beyond are just crazy and all on the same day. Its amazing
