    Yeah I know nothing about him.

    Its going to be very close for me to win the 1st place in the Tennis Draft Kings today. Going to come down to who scores more, Thiem or Djokovic.

    Pick 6 guys. Scoring based on Games Won/Lost, Sets Won/Lost, Aces, Double Faults, Breaks etc.

    Thiem broken again. Like WTF. 3 straight breaks on his serve.

    I cant believe Thiem has been broken 4 times against this guy

    According to my numbers, that last break is going to ruin my chance at winning the Draft Kings.

    If he was able to hold onto 6-2 or 6-3. I would have been 1st. A couple other people had the same team but probably $1,000 profit at least. So frustrating. Thought this match easily would be like 6-2 6-2. After being up 3-0, thought it was smooth sailing

    Its actually MADDENING even more. The last Krajinovic service game he got broken to give Djokovic the match. He had 2 game points. If he got that, I win.

    I dont know how you do this Fran Tarkenton

    That break of serve cost me $580.00

    Wendel Clark, I found this since the commentator said Hawkeye Live made a funny call...

    "With Hawk-Eye Live, the electronic system makes all the calls, even if there are some familiar touches like the recorded voices that shout “out,” “fault” or “foot fault.”

    When a line call is particularly close, the system automatically uses a recorded voice that projects more urgency. As in GPS systems, different voices (and languages) can be used and during World TeamTennis, both male voices and female voices were used during matches."

    All French players are basically the same. Very talented but the mental strength of a 2 year old. Paire is the leader.

    Dude will hit shots you could never imagine and then he will have a major letdown and start to dump everything into the net.

    Haha I can’t do anymore justice to Wendels summary. That said he had a melty a month or two back against Sinner. It’s ITT but was absolutely fucking hilarious because Sinner wanted no part of making eye contact with him after the match, he was fucking terrified and it was hilarious.

    I dont know if hes the leader of the FFT but he is the leader of being a mental midget for French players.

    Him and Fognini are the 2 worst of when they are on they can beat almost anybody. When they are off, they can lose to anyone.
