    This is the expectation at this point. Hopefully she can break through this year.

    She started strong and then just got absolutely dominated.

    Good lord. :shocked:

    You're going pretty badly when you lose two sets to Giorgi 6-1 6-0, considering how erratic her game is.

    Leylah with a big win in a tight match over Amanda. Encouraging tournament for AA.

    Coco serves up a 2nd set bagel on Mertens and rolls into the quarters.

    Felix very much on his game early. Conditions are not what Rafa prefers.

    Hm. Rafa gets one break back but not the second and drops the first set 3-6

    She lost in the 1st round of the tournament before RG to a person just Inside the Top 300. Then she makes a run to the QF. She’s so bipolar with her game it’s crazy.

    He is. Was an elite juniors player, won the junior boys French Open. Great clay pedigree, won a ton of challenger clay events last year to boost his ranking, took a set off Novak at the US Open and has had a good clay swing this year.

    I did catch the match today in its entirely. Two things, kids a psychopath, I love it. Second remember last year when every was broken or playing something else during hard court. I can’t remember if it was Ruud or Rune who was just ripping off victories, won like three tournaments in a row.

    Also, have not caught much Rune. Glad I was able to catch today, definitely a early round man I would watch in entirety.

    That was Ruud. He won like 2-3 straight 250/Challengers in Europe.

    Rune went big when he took that first set against Novak and then had cramps at the US Open.

    Tough ending for Leylah. Blister or whatever that is appears to be giving her hell.

    Based on what I saw, unfortunately I do not think its a blister. Looks like something inside her foot, which as you know is worse. Her dad was trying to get her to retire for like 20-30 minutes and then gave up.

    "While NBC and Peacock aired some of the coverage this weekend, you’ll need Tennis Channel if you want to watch the biggest match of the tournament thus far. Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal will face off at 2:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday and it is only available on Tennis Channel."

    my god this sport can be dumb

    This is the only major on TC thankfully. Also the tennis channel is literally the only reason I have a cable package. So fucking stupid.
