    Went for a quicker run this morning because it’s pouring, left after the first set and Alexandrova bageled Sabalenka in the second. She needs a sports psychologist or something. How the hell does she get bageled on grass, she’s built for it.

    Holy shit the dude did it. Could say a few were cheap but he beat Daniil. First win and then first tournament win. Oh yeah, first final victory on world number 2, for 12 more hours.

    Been really impressed by his game all week too. He’s no fluke.

    I’ve watched a lot of tennis in the last year and I mean a lot of lower level tennis. I’ve never seen this guy and don’t remember his name. I looked him up and I was like oh he’s 25 years old. Then I watched the 3rd set of the Felix match. This dude hits massive. It makes zero sense how he’s never been able to make it.

    Exactly! The dude has a ton of power. I would love to know how he hasn’t been able to jump up high

    Great speech from him. You’d never know this is a new stage for him.

    “Great respect for you, Daniil. I’ve watched you on TV many times.” LOL

    Lol, that’s what I was saying for Sabalenka, same deal she was hitting absolute fucking bombs the first set this morning. Didn’t read anything about her being hurt.

    Was great, Daniil was awesome as well. He’s become extremely likable.

    Hate we won’t see Daniil at Wimbledon. He’s already good on the grass and getting better.

    Alright Stef held on. Lost the 2nd set 6-1 and on his first service game he was down 15-40. Saved those and then easily took the match

    So if he makes a nice run there that should be enough to keep him going correct? Should eliminate qualifiers for US Open as well.

    A 3rd round loss would put him right around 90ish. Which is right on the cups of qualies.

    Best part is he wasn't even scheduled to play Wimbledown. He was signed up for the Malaga Challenger.

    If I were him I'd try to get in Eastbourne and gain some more points while your hot now that he has a Wild Card

    Crazy that Stef is an underdog to Kyrgios tomorrow. Was hoping Nick would be the slight underdog. But out of principle I got to bet Stef

    Stef is really a bad Grass court player which is strange

    2022: 2-2 when he loses to Kyrgios
    2021: 0-1 Loss to Tiafoe first round of Wimbledon
    2019: 2-3. Beat Edmund and Chardy. Losses to FAA, Fabbiano, Jarry
    2018: 6-3. Beat JP Smith, Jaziri, Pouille, barrere, Donaldson, Fabbiano. Loses to Gasquet, Isner, Kudla
    2017: 4-3. Beat Becker, Giraldo, Hanfmann, De Loore. Losses to De Minaur, Pospisil and Lajvoic

    As long as Nick doesn't have a melty, he plays fantastic typically.

    Kind of funny to see his record against Nadal considering the way he exploded on the scene at Nadal’s expense.

    paulski Well-Known Member

    It's still a pretty handy record - statistically he's beaten Nadal every 3rd time he's played him. Not too many guys can claim that. :golfclap:

    TC is such a joke. Multiple solid matches currently in progress and the womens field is absurdly deep.

    Airs Peniston vs Cerundolo. I never heard of either.

    Peniston is a journey man GBR player.

    Cerundolo is a pretty good clay courter.

    Big turnaround set for Coco.

    She was serving on serve at 4-5 and saved 4 break set points to tie it at 5 and then broke and held to win 7-5

    Nick rolls over PCB, and threw in an underhand ace for good measure.

    Hubie knocks off Nick in a tight one. Definitely an under the radar Wimbledon favorite, and Nick is going to be an unseeded nightmare for someone
