    Oh man. Goffin on match point goes for a FH up the line to end it and clanks it off the tape.

    He’s killing on both sides. The angles he’s getting on the cross court BH are absurd.

    We ended up getting the best case final from those semis. Might actually be a decent match.

    So I just started watching. 3rd code violation of the match.

    At 40-40, he hit a 2nd serve called in, umpire checked the mark. Called it out. Dennis climbed the net and said wrong mark. That resulted in a point violation for climbing the net to get broken.

    Talking to the supervisor, he turned on the crowd and yelled SHUT THE FUCK UP

    He's telling people to come down from the stands to fight.
