Let’s go 5?
Lol no one wants to win this damn thing.
Thiem looks fucking gassed
This is wild. Nerves abound.
Those last 2 shots by Thiem my goodness
My goodness Thiem...
Maybe don’t give him the forehand down the line Sascha. Absurd from Thiem.
Thiem breaks and will serve for it.
Sashas nerves really kicked in
If Zverev loses this after being up 2-0 and serving for the championship; I'm not sure he ever recovers.
Thiem cramping and broken, now a TB. This set.
This is kind of brutal and amazing from both players lol
Oh my god Sascha.
He had it
Sasha so fucking nervous
85 MPH first serve
68 MPH second serve
He had CP on his racket there. Yikes
Glad for Thiem
Dom! Dom! Dom!
Fair play to Zverev though. He showed up and made it a hell of a match.
Feel bad for Sasha. He’s going to be hurting after this
Esp. after coming back in 5 sets Friday.
just happy this us open came together
Some Andy Roddick tier choking
Agreed, was fun.
Yup. Find it odd they aren’t doing a bubble in Paris
I think he’ll be ok. He’s only 23. He’s got some confidence issues to work out. But he’s got serious game. Thiem is a tough out no matter what the score is.
Not sure if you like soccer or not but France is currently a complete cluster fuck. Also notice who else had a problem with the bubble at US Open?
side note, interested in how they test/implement things there. Back when this shit all kicked off, France was one of the first to say no people in stadiums until sept/oct and people thought it was nuts, but to their credit we were all just feeling this shit out. Their soccer league was cancelled for the year and it was what it was. FF to June, when they had the equivalent of spring training/preseason matches.........with fans in attendance.
Long story short I’m no expert, just want to point out other countries in the EU(or previously in) now consider anyone from France high risk. Cases are currently insane there, really interested in seeing how this plays out. Obviously I hope for the best but it’s currently a complete shit show.
France just set a daily record for Covid cases in 24 hours. Should work out well.
Took me 3 paragraphs to say this thanks. Just thought it was ironic they were so aggressive to begin it and now I can turn on a French league game where they are at 20% capacity yet everyone is sitting in the same 3 sections. It’s absolutely surreal.
just finished on DVR and what a match
ugly but man that was good drama. Happy for Dominic but you know Zverev will never forget choking that away. Emotional ceremony, you can tell his parents ride him hard.
Bubble in Tennis works for sure. I think key is limiting the amount of extra ppl each player can have. Very well done.
Were ball kids and umps etc all staying at the same hotels etc? I didn't read a lot of details on how they set it up. But I assume literally anyone involved had to be "in the bubble"?
I’d imagine so. Otherwise it makes no sense how it could work.
Different hotel then players but yes basically same procedure. Couldn't go out into the city or anything. So more of separate bubbles that all lead to the tennis center. Same for ESPN people
Also note the us open doesn't have ball kids as much as ball adults. And that's not unique to this year. It's always like that. Definitely skews older compared the the volunteers at other tournaments even m1000 ones.
That’s a really great win for Anisimova over Vekic to start the clay season.
You really have to love Benoit Paire
Fritz starting up
Great little blow up.
Also got just a wonderful Paire performance today as well.
That was yesterday but man he is the best. The gif I posted yesterday was from that match I can watch him all day
LMAO, SInner wanted no part of making eye contact with Benoit after the last point.
