    Fritz beats Matteo. Penko beats Swiatek. Wild start to the day in the desert.

    Leylah’s so good at controlling rallies and making her opponents run all over despite not having a ton of pop.

    What a hold Leylah!

    This match deserves a 3rd set Tiebreaker

    Crazy day. I would have put (and lost) money on Swiatek beating Penko - can't believe that result.

    Kerber (#10) now the highest seeded woman left. :idk:

    Grigor was down a set and 1-4 with Med serving in the 2nd. Just won the 2nd set 6-4 and they’re headed to a decider. Wild set

    I took him live before I read your comment. Still think he has a shot but he has to stop the bleeding obviously.

    Just watching Dimitrov that last point. He could barely move. Took a while to get to the towel.

    Dimitrov taking chances early here. If he continues to hit the great shots, he could still win but he doesnt want the long points

    Medvedev was just that off he couldnt keep the points going. Grigor was barely able to move, hit some great shots

    Ostapenko is such a cunt. Also Russian (former bloc) coaches are my favorite. Zero emotion, player is having a complete melt down and they just stare back like get your fucking brain together comrade.

    Penko playing well is a sure sign Medvedev was right in saying IW is playing like a clay court

    Happy for Fritz having a good week. Nakashima, Matteo and Sinner are three really nice wins, and now gets a shot at Zverev

    The way Diego just played that first set, I could see how he lost to that kid in the Davis Cup

    If Dimitrov wins this like last night where he can barely move on some points, it will be insane
