  1. OMG Kei! Wins with an ace! PCB was PISSED. Didn’t shake umpire’s hand at the end. Thought a point in the super TB that was overruled and awarded to Kei should have been replayed. Full TB posted to YouTube: Coric out to Pouille! Zverev out to Raonic! Novak has split sets with Daniil, losing the 2nd in a TB.
  2. Zverev falls again in a Slam. He didn’t show up in those first two sets, but once he actually exerted some effort in the third, it was too late, and Raonic took advantage.
  3. What is going on with Sascha Zverev? 👀
  4. Svitolina just beat Madison in a bizarre, topsy-turvy match to make the Aussie QFs for the second straight year. Meanwhile, if Osaka is to advance to meet Svitolina, she’ll have to come back from a set down again, this time against Cryface Sevastova.
  5. Wow, Kafelnikov and Mary Pierce finally got in!
  6. And “fúcking bitch” Pavs just knocked out Sloane.
  7. Wow. Lots of comparisons to Fed beating Sampras at Wimbledon in 2001. Roger’s worst ever performance on BP conversion: And then there’s this: Some people are saying this indicates 2019 is his final year. Other are saying he needs the points because his ranking will drop to 6/7 due to not defending last year’s title (and he has nothing to defend from clay since he didn’t play it last year). Maria’s testy press conference after losing to Barty:
  8. Wow, the chair umpire could have been killed. Tiafoe beat Grigor! This is interesting, and you can add Thiem at the USO to this:
  9. *Just* got on the board after nine games. Danielle is one cocky woman. This post-match interview has zero false modesty.
  10. WOW. Danielle Collins just abused Kerber. 6-0, 6-2 in under an hour.
  11. Wow. Rafa is steamrolling Berdych.
  12. Collins up 4-0 on Kerber?!?! Now 5-0.
  13. How long has he been working with Agassi? I’ve wondered if AA has the temperament to be a coach. Clearly it didn’t work with Novak, but sometimes personalities just don’t mesh.
  14. There was a rally in the 3rd set in this Barty/Sharapova match that ranks among the best I’ve seen. Certainly some of the best movement I’ve seen from Maria. Barty nearly let Maria back into this set just now, but had some clutch serves to maintain a break lead. Frances up two sets to love on Grigor.
  15. Even Nolefam were a bit confused as to why Novak got so derailed by the lights in the stadium (and then the heckler) when he was cruising to a straight sets victory. BG brought up the USO match against Sandgren last year, a good comparison. But sometimes he does need to take a scenic route in a match to stay motivated for whatever reason. I think about 2016 when he went AWOL in the match against Gilles Simon, made 100 UFE, won the match, and then won his sixth AO. He’ll need to tighten it up against Medvedev, who talked a bit of sh!t about Novak in his last press conference. If there’s anything that motivates a great champion, it’s sh!t talk from an up-and-coming opponent. Sad to see Venus go out like that to Halep. That section of the women’s draw is insane. Meanwhile, this made the rounds:
