Saw the HL for the Fed-Tiafoe match. Tiafoe is an awkward player, a lot like Monfils/Gulbis but different style. hard to predict his shots  and on some days it can be troubling. He strikes a heavy ball as well. Plus he is new on tour so that is also his advantage. Impressive performance but I'm not looking beyond that. 

I don't think this match should worry Fed too much.

I saw the first two games before realising it was mad to stay up all night. Federer seemed to serve well enough and some of the dropped points were very close to being great winners. I didn't like the stiff back on the backhand but given the 2nd / 3rd set scores it simply must have loosened up somewhat.

Like I said on the other thread, I'm hoping it improves, as it has in previous events in the past. It'll need to.

Fed / Colonel match up, another 17-0 h2h possibility for Federer.

Tiafoe is going to be deadly.  It was one of the worst R1 opponents Fed could have had.  He'd have beaten Nadal.  Kyrgios going out really helps Fed's cause, though.

Watching Coric vs Zverev.  Coric just took the third set, so Zverev needs to win the next two.  But, oh boy, is it a dull match to watch?  It is duller than a Murray Djokovic match-up.

Other thoughts:

Today would have been a fantastic day to have a grounds pass.  Plenty of matches still ongoing, and it is almost 9pm already.  And some of those matches have been quite interesting.

Fed now all of a sudden has a great looking draw.  Hopefully he can make the most of it.  But if he goes out early, I hope it will be in Rd3 rather than Rd2.

I have to say it once again.  Unreal the number of injuries.  Djoko/Andy/Stan/Nishi/Raonic not in at all.  Kyrgios injured.  Cilic maybe also (?).  When was the last time that neither of the two finalists entered the next year's slam?

Is it something about how those shirts look on TV or were Coric today and Tiafoe last night sweating profusely?  Maybe it is super humid there?  Because I do not think it is so hot.

Holy shit Coric is good.  I mean, he's GOOD.  If he beats Zverev, what a scalp.


Fed now all of a sudden has a great looking draw. 

Not sure I agree with that.  Nadal / Dimi SF isn't too fun if they meet.  Del Potro / Thiem QF not "easy". Youzhny, lopez, Kohl aren't walk overs. 

And we're only here because Fed took out Tiafoe in 5 sets.  Could easily be out.

Tiafoe was pretty difficult for a 1st Rd opponent, but he was not so difficult that Fed should be going five against him.  Fed was awful in the first set and while he improved as the match progressed (and even hit some amazing shots) he was too hit-and-miss throughout.

And Zverev is done.  His slam results this year are:  R3, R1, R4, R2.  He has never been past R4.

Well done to Coric.  He was very impressive, played very mature and focused.  He does not have that much firepower but he made the best of what he has.  I also give it to him - he was definitely trying to be the aggressor tonight.  Zverev was quite poor today, as also he was in Rd 1.

Oh my, it is going to be Cilic in the final again, is it not?  But that is no good; he cries there.

Checking the scores it looks like Shapovalov has an early break against Tsonga.  Maybe Shapovalov can make the final now!

Shapovalov vs Tsonga is very watchable.  Shapovalov is, for me, by far the most entertaining player of the young generation.  To be honest, he is the only one in that generation that I find truly entertaining.  I can watch Thiem, or Kyrgios, or maybe some others, but none of them really do it for me.  Shapovalov I enjoy thoroughly though.

I had cilic as a finalist and possible winner.  But with Coric about... who knows?

Coric?  He is not getting anywhere near the final.  I suspect he will go out the next round.  But even if he does not, he will lose well before the final.

So Zverev and Tsonga both out.  The highest seeds remaining in the bottom half:

Cilic (#5)
Isner (#10)
Carreno Busta (#12)

One would think that just about anyone can make the final from that half.  Maybe Pouille?  Or Isner or Querrey?  Even Shapovalov is starting to look realistic.

Great results : Rubi, Shap, Lucas all through! Bubbly 

Krunic, the Mighty Mouse strukes again, too! diva

Even Dustin B. has made it to R2!

Also very hapoy A.Zverev is out. His game is unbearably dull and gutless.

Coric must have played like Nole last night. Winking

Suddenlyt this USO lokes exciting and alive! tennisball

Wow, I just saw A.Zverev's photo from last nit's match.
His stripy top looked very much like one of Borg's iconic outfits.

Borg is not back, I hope. Winking

His brother though managed to knock Paire out from two sets down. Shame for Paire Sad but I forgive Misha as he is a decent&gutsy player. Big Grin

Looks like Shap-Tsonga was a great match:



Tsonga played well, so no mean feat to beat him in straight sets.

This was a classic of outplaying tennis.

Two all out attacking, exciting players. Sporit from a bygone era.

Zero percentage and calculation, pure instinct. Wonderful!

Also, good to see Goffin winning again.

And what to say of Dr Misha...Hug

Masha through, too. Bubbly

This time it was Muguruza who had a go at her in the press conference.

Seriously, I don't know how some of those sad, little people sleep...

Hasn't he played Youz, Lopez and Kohl a combined 40 times and never lost? Bugger, have I just jinxed it?!
