    Still my favorite match fixing moment

    Agreed she just sat there and was almost shocked when she had half a shot at returning that.

    I don’t think I’ve seen someone hit a shot, go down to their knees and just sit there with the ball still in play. Serves look funky. It looks like Brengle is trying to win points, so I think this is just the server going rogue.

    It’s a very jerky serve as well, not a fluid motion and not a nearly consistent from serve to serve. I’d be interested in what a tennis pro has to say about that. They analyze enough shit players to validate or disprove that thought.

    Thiem is playing on clay here and I’m analyzing some Russian. Back to business.

    Some of these shots at the net from Diego are just tremendous.

    I'm not a tennis guy, but this seems like a weird match.

    I still think Diego has this match

    Just torturing Thiem's backhand, and Dom has no gameplan to get rallies onto his forehand.

    And more importantly, Schwartzman fitness is clearly better. Thiem is still lagging from the US grind and whatever knocks he picked up along the way. (I wonder if the cold is keeping his body tight too?)

    More than likely yes. Sinner is 19 and going to be real good. But he’s more than likely to shit his pants when he’s out there with nadal

    I don't care about the date or year, etc..... For Diego to take down Rafa and Dom on clay in the same SEASON is absolutely fucking insane.

    27 straight wins at RG and only losing 3 sets. Its the most absurd stat there is.

    Rafa on Clay might be the most dominating athlete there is
