What's Konta's game like?

I saw a few points, she can hit the ball fast, any flair?

my picks:

1. Cilic
2. Keys
3. Djokovic
4. Mladenovic 
5. Tsonga ( but it will be close)
6. Lopez ( Fogna loses interest in matches unless he has a scuffle with someone)
7. Vinci
8. Venus

High quality tennis betwee Tsonga and Paire.

I like Paire's serve. He is playing really well. I knew he would with a bit of winning confidence. At last!

Tsonga I really thought once was a slam contender. But he missed that bus. I can only hope for some upset wins from him now.

Can he?

I like Tsonga, but can't see him winning a slam, shame because he is better than Cilic who did win it last year.

He relies in his serve too much and is very fragile if it stops.

He could have been a better player with a SBH maybe.

His DBH is not good enough, and doesn't fit in his game.

Well, Federer needed a kind draw and he hasn't had it.  He's gonna have to win by going through a nightmare.  Isner, Berdych/Gasquet, Wawrinka/Murray, Djokovic/Cilic/Tsonga.

Meanwhile, Djokovic has had a piss easy run to the SF.

LS Don't you think Djoko is moving (much) better now than in 2011? It's scary how he brings those balls back...even on fast USO!

Gutty playing well, as expected.
I still can't get over what difference the speed of court has made this year.
Tennis is so much better!

He has filled out in shoulders now and hitting the ball harder, so even tougher to stay in those rallies.
Also learnt a few more shots and got more variation but his tennis remains gutless.

Not a brave number one.

The only way is to outhit him. Tsonga/Cilic may do it if they can hold serve.
Esp if they play in day session as he has had all night matches so far.

Men's semis are played in the day session (on Friday - finally) so yes, that match would be a day session match.

Very hard for either of those two to outhit him.  Cilic would have to play as well as he did last year.

Tsonga beat him in Toronto last year, though Nole was terrible post Wimbledon/ wedding etc.
I don't think Cilic ever beat him but was very close in Wimbledon 2014. This looks faster than Wimbledon.

Tsonga's performance I would be looking to is his 2012 FO match against Nole.  He can do it but it is very unlikely on any given day.

Rooting for Agut but finding the spectacle - why high quality - also quite boring.  It is like watching two Noles playing each other.

To me he looks the same as ever. His shots have never been fast, more heavy.
In fact, the best ones are spinny, angled CC ones on both wings.

These rackets do all the work.  Never seen anything like it.  Tons of down the line shots at pace and all Novak has to do is a pansy little flick.  That shouldn't be the case.  Agut does not have a very good first serve, which doesn't help.

It's not just the racquet but fast legs. Must feel claustophobic for the opponent who is trying to put the ball away.
But despite all, I think Gutty had the game to beat Nole last night, just ran out of steam.

Those long rallies are there for a reason.

Technology in equipment science can't be stopped. It hold for everything and not just sports. And not that Agut doesn't have access to those kind of racquets or a very old player who learnt tennis using a totally outdated racquet.

Beating Djokovic requires better shotmaking, more innovation in game. Agut fails on parameters. He did well to take a set, but that was as far as he could go.
