Dimi can't serve under pressure. It's a shame but he'll never win a slam

Ramos has lost control of this match and handed it to Kyrgios.

He can hit balls into the crowd
He can swear on end
He can interrupt the server to admonish the crowd

And Ramis sits there like a glove puppet.

Rafa will enjoy this match. Here's the confirmation that he'll beat either player by just hanging in.

Kyrgios’s dad looks a right cuck. No wonder his son is like he is.

Brilliant from Dimitrov. Three near perfect tiebreaks to see him through. His movement looks phenomenal. I can’t see Edmund beating him so should set up a SF against Rafa.

Happy for Dimi, hope he can crush Nadal and revenge for last year, was so close, though it would of not given us the epic final of Fed/Nadal of last year.

Why not Cilic. The way Cilic and Rafa played today, I think Cilic would have a chance. He is a choker, but he did win the USO, so he has it in him to win big matches, if stars align.

I don't agree with it quite like this. Pro tennis is entertainment. If people preferred to watch women's tennis then women should make more money, regardless of it being a restricted event.

Similar to boxing. The richest fights are often in lower weights, even though they would stand no chance against heavyweights.

It all just depends on what people prefer to watch.

Oh more than happy to let the market decide!

If that was the approach then the women would be getting far, far less. The best guide can be drawn from this, the market-set prices for Wimbledon debenture tickets. Note that theare is no day involving a men’s match - not in week 1 either - sold over £100 cheaper than Ladies Final, and the two cheapest days are Ladies quarters and semis.

Roughly, it looks like the men are worth 3 - 3.5 tmes the Ladies.

Yeah I know. It is similar for resale ticket prices for the USO. Obviously the pressure to pay men and women same is political and has no justification in the economics of the respective competitions.

....that is the whole point of Nadal’s joke failproof draw.
That’s why I was furious when I saw it.

The only hope left is Cilic and Dimi can properly exhaust him, Dimi surely will.

I think with Nadal, despite his fitness, he is at the age where it is finally starting to make a difference.

Not a big difference, but at keast some hope.

And it was visible even in last year’s AO final.

Cilic? isn't he worse than Dimi in the chocking department?
