    The one-handed backhand from Musetti is pretty great for an 18-year old.

    I really like this kids mental state. Dominating and then Stan breaks back and he held serve like a champ

    What a freaking win. No matter his career, that’s a story he’ll be able to tell forever.

    Little surprised Vika is playing this week given all the tennis she's played the past month. Short clay stint causes some tough decisions.

    I cant say enough how impressive that was from Sinner. To serve for the match in 2nd, to get broken twice then break back with Stef serving 6-5. Then losing a long tiebreak, and not fucking your head mentally. Very impressed.

    Other than his racket slam after the last point Nishioka is the most disinterested player I’ve seen in some time. I’m not talk like a Benoit or Nick tantrum, like genuinely looks like he gives less than zero fucks.

    Imagine Musetti, you get a wild card at 18 and you draw Wawrinka. You pull the fantastic win and then you get Nishikori

    Im very nervous Shapo going to go the Jack Sock way. Hes become a good doubles player with the Vet Bopanna.

    They took out the #1 seed today.

    Vika returned well but she also hit 89% serves. Only had 4 points in 6 service games go to 2nd serve.

    Last top 5 was Sharapova by Lindsay Davenport at IW. Last Slam Champ to get double bageled was Penko, naturally.

    Osaka announces she will not play the French Open. Joins Barty and very likely Andreescu as top-10 players not hitting the clay.

    Also with a win against Dimitrov, Shapo will reach the Top 10 for the first time. Right now after todays win he is a Career High #12

    Novak ties 1-1 in the third. Getting a run, at least up until this post.
