Tennis won twice here. James. :yeah:

When I remember that Fish has lost to this all-serve guy... :superlol: Isner`s groundstrokes look solid in comparison, it says something. :rolleyes:

Unless Olivetti has improved much since February, I can't say that I really rated him. A top professional player in Fish had no business losing to him.

His serve is lethal...when it actually goes in. He doesn't serve as well as he should for a player of his height, and I'm honestly surprised that his serve isn't better. When Karlovic and Isner emerged onto the scene, they were already brilliant servers.

The rest of Olivetti's game is really quite limited.

NID. Olivetti's fluke win over Fish last year means nothing.

Good on Blake. Great top 100 player, can't quite make it into top 5 anymore, but you can't really blame him, this isn't 2006 anymore.

I think the 2013 US Open will be his last slam. He's trying to have one more respectable year and then call it a career as I don't see him fighting to be close to 100 at 34 years old

The most hilarious bit was watching Blake get broken in the second set. Ridiculous.

Good to see 33 years old stay on the court

Blake has been one of greatest players

Maybe Top three one hand backhand in recent 12 years

Who's ahead of him? Karlovic & Feliciano Lopez?

Tennis temporarily saved.

Even though watching Fish lose to this serve-bot was funny, I'm really not interested in seeing any more of his matches. Send him back to the futures tour please.
