No it's not, here in Pyongyang I have decided to follow GMT to show how our society is a lot more like the west than people think.

Wow, Kimmy, what's brought this most unexpected display of softness from you?

I'll give Raonic one thing, he can slice the ball reasonably well to keep him in the point.
Obviously, it's only the defensive slice.

OK truth be told, I just got annoyed that I had to stay up so late to watch the French Open and Wimbledon; so I decided to dramatically change our time zone.

If you think his return would be where it is without a lot of hard work, you are naïve.

On a separate note, it always puzzles me why many people care whether or not a player is talented - it is almost as if for them the quality of play was secondary and mostly the means to discern the talent, rather than the other way around.

Apart from playing unwatchable tennis, Raonic has one more thing in common with Nadal: he is very lucky.

In case you haven't worked it out in your time-zone, there is a rather big match going on at the moment.

I do have to say I find both of these guys rather boring to watch.  I think I will stick around as I am home with some flu or something, but it is not what I would call high excitement tennis.

Not a bagel, but easy enough first set.  Nole looks like he could break every game while he is mostly very comfortable on his own serves.

I'd say Nadal is a bit worse.

Yeah, it would smiley

They are both quite bad with MTOs, not really sure which one is worse.  Nole is otherwise a pretty good sport but he still likes to throw in a timely MTO when needed.

I don't think Nole is any more. It's not fair to tar him with the same brush as Nadal.
Nishi's pretty bad, though.

2:0.
Maybe it'll be a bagel in the 2nd set!

Raonic's only chance of winning anything big os S&V-ing.
He hasn't got the heart and movement for it, though.

Rao served five times, was broken in three of them, and Nole had BPs in the other two. Unreal.

This is what lets Nole down: 3:0 up in the set and starting to be casual with returning.
He has lost many a set & made life difficult for himself like that.
But I don't blame him.
He's got one very soft heart inside him.

Absolutely happy for Nole.  Quite impressed by his great  performance
in the final. It is useless to say more, he was excellent. He is just great man Thumbs Up

I have seen Rao's first smile ever at the final presentation. Not sure he feels any emotions, that is.

I don;t find Rao's game boring at all. I just wish he could pull more winners though, more aces too. He is a good contrast to what we have and I wish he had won today as that would have left Fed with a bit more chance for number 1. Now the race is over.

Does anyone know what time the draw is coming out as well as the order of play.
The website is useless.
Only rubbish tickets left, all gone to resellers, not sure if they will be releasing more tickets on the day/the day before daily order of play as they always used to.
Hung up on their customer service ticket line after enduring 10 minutes of sheer intellectual abuse of automated voice recordings....

Yes...I haven't been able to find any decent tickets. Final,SF and many other sessions sold out already.
Decent for me is lower part of lower tier, first 10-12 rows max, the rest really is a waste of time.
It's much better staying at home, watching from the sofa otherwise.

I want to see Fed from close up so, I'll try and get a ticket even from resellers, no guarantee of him there next year, so making the most of it.
Other than that, the only players I haven't seen are Stan and Nishi and would really like to see them both, I hope they release more tickets when the order of play comes out (that's how it always used to be), don't expect there will be much interest in them unless they are in Murray's group.

But even if I don't I'll live...I've been every year sonce it started and feel really fortunate that I was able to watch this generation of players at the doorstep, the timing was perfect!
I don't care where they move the WTF to in a year or two...

Saw the match repeat telecast today. Raonic was nervous and couldn't play his best tennis. But anyway he didn't have much chance on a sand pit court against Djokovic. The tournament produced some wonderful tennis in 2010 when it was real quick. Now its a roadrunner's paradise.

That's the problem with Rao...he was nervous reaching his first 1/4F of a slam, he is going to be nervous reaching his first Semi, his first final, etc....

Cilic came and won it! Hope he can do something in London.
