    The crazy part is if you'd have showed me that graphic before and said pick which one is Penko and which one is Martic. I'd be opposite.

    Sakkari flat out dominated Svitolina.

    Svits hasn't looked good all year

    Some weird tennis right now.

    Dimitrov loses the first set to Clay Courter Andujar.

    Zverev bageled Millman Set 1. Lost Set 2. However up a break in Set 3. Millman had a couple break chances just now and the one he dumped the ball into the net which should have been an easy down the line winner.

    Gerasimov really gave that game away and is going to let Felix stay around here. IF Felix gets this TB, Gerasimov might fold like a lawn chair

    Shapo beating Simon on clay at the French only to turn around and lose to him on an indoor hardcourt two weeks later literally makes no sense.

    Schwartzman comeback is insane.

    Davidoch Fokina serving at 6-2 5-2 had a match point. And served for it at 6-5

    Im not sure about the line judges but Im guessing they are strictly using hawkeye. They did that at the Western & Southern Open.

    But with the nets, I seem to remember them always doing it there and it being super strange

    All of a sudden Thiem gets broken twice serving the first set at 5-1. Going to fuck me in DraftKings. Got almost the perfect lineup and it was going to come down to him vs Djokovic
