US Open R2: [8] Tipsarevic def. Baker 6-4, 6-3, 6-4

Kinda expected result, but felt Baker would put up more of a fight. Disappointing.

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

Janko was awesome. It would be even better if hadn't been broken when serving for the match.

WWW? That's pretty much answered in the thread title.

I expected a better fight from Brian, but I guess it wasn't meant to be.

Surprisingly clean and easy win for Tipsa... even with that choke at the end.

Expected much more of that shit on his part but Baker didn't give him any chance,
getting broken early in each set and never really being in the match.

Janko got sloppy, then unnecessarily tight in the last two games, but wouldn't be Janko without that. Otherwise almost perfect the whole match.

Rlly rutine until the end of the 3rd when Janko had a MP on 5-2*, didn't use it and got broken in the next game serving for it, bot he broke back to end the match. Zemlja (or Stebe) shouldn't be a problem in the next round. And the best thing is, I feel that Janko can lift his level of play for the rest of the tournament.

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

Janko was just too solid, he gave Baker all the questions he couldn't answer. Baker needs to become a bit faster and stronger to compete with the best guys. His tennis iq is really really good though.

Too solid from Tipsy.Hopefully, he will improve his game even more and go as far as SF.

Strong stuff. Baker wasn't good, Tipsy's FS % bellow 50 and Baker had his first bp in Janko's last serving game which is really poor.

The Baker bubble has burst - nice Spring but has really struggled. Not a surprise package anymore and Janko exploited his weaknesses perfectly
