    I dont want to be too drastic but that was the WORST I have seen Murray and it was really sad to watch. No movement.

    Murray 1st serve was 51% and was real rough to watch

    I think we’re just seeing now that Andy can’t play Bof5. He went tooth and nail to beat Yoshi in NY in nearly 5 hours and his body hasn’t been able to bounce back since.

    TIL he’s married and has kids with Flavia. Also hilarious that I had to look and see which tournament he was in. Thought for a second he was in St Petersburg. Only relevance for that is I watch a YouTube channel and the dudes from there. Like maybe 1% of people there wear masks and absolutely nothing is closed.

    LOL this is the dude I watch whom I was referencing this morning. I also have three projects currently on hold in Russia. Been on hold for since April time frame. That said, if you watch the video or are interested at all, this is all in St. Petersburg, concert, dinner and bars. Maybe 1/100 or so people have masks and out of those maybe 1/5 are wearing it properly. They genuinely do not give a fuck. He was in Moscow not too long ago and it was the same.

    That said I'd imagine quite a few more players there will be exposed.

    You don't need to watch it all to get the gist.

    Opelka starting to look a little more comfortable at the net. Still just nothing on return though.

    Opelka breaks Medvedev to win the 2nd 7-5. Well okay then. This match is very strange now

    Before that game, Opelka had only won 4 return points on 9 service games.

    A rare messy game from Danill there, with a nice volley to seal it for Opelka.

    Opelka breaks Coric right away.

    Imagine one side of the semis we have the excitement in Rublev/Shapo.

    The other side Serve Bot War in Raonic/Opelka

    Shapo beat Wawrinka today.

    All of it is on Tennis Channel. Tomorrow will 100% be on TC.

    There’s actually one right downtown Delray, 2 Blocks off Atlantic Ave and Federal.

    The one I used to go to, is about 5 miles north in Boynton Beach. Right off Gateway

    I like seeing people retire before they look like dog shit on the court. Goerges was still serviceable out there.

    When you see guys like Cilic out there or Berdych at the end. Its like please just hang it up

    Especially in this age of the WTA, there's no easy matches or wins out there to be had. If you think it's time, go ahead and call it. Will miss her smoking forehands though.
