Right but did Zverev do it at 18??? I think that makes a big difference.

Good fight from Ryan today as always. I hope he picks up his level for the semis.

Great fighting spirit from Harrison. Deserved the win. Only 19, looks like he will go far in his career.

Maybe it's nerves, but I think that's his comfort zone, to grind, and that in big stages he comes out of his shell, plays up to the occasion and does things he's not really going to do in most matches. He can hit the ball cleaner and be more offensive, but he makes errors doing that. So it's a balance, knowing when to attack while still having that competitiveness and defensive ability that makes him tough. But he's still learning and growing into his game, his body and his increasing experience level will only help improve his weaknesses with time and hard work.

Indeed. At the moment his backhand and rally ball are invitations to attack far too much of the time. With that being said, he can steal some points playing defense this way, but still, it's not the way to go.
I see potential in his backhand, though. He unloaded on a couple today as he often does in a match and I never disliked the technique. He just needs to put hours and hours into it with a good coach.

Just to add, both Harrison and Lu should look at Murray and Djokovic on how they hit their backhands. Heck, they can look at Fish in LA. They both really lack fluidity in their backhands, especially Harrison. That's why Lu struggled so much on those kick serves and why Harrison struggles to create with his BH.

He needs to be less predictable with his serves, and use the S&V a bit more, but he did a much better job of that in the third set. He should look to add a bit more speed on the first serve but that should come with more physical maturity. His service accuracy is good in general. But he's always going to have matches like this, more often than not, because he has a grinders mentality and he can't hit players off the court with any shot.
