Kyrgios didn't even try in that last game. If he doesn't get his head sorted early second set this could be over in another 25 minutes.

Kyrgios needs to step it up from the baseline rallies and hit harder with more angle. Lots of bh errors off normal rally balls.

Re: USO Betting Odds: Federer #1, Nadal #2, big gap to Zverev #3 Murray #4

With Zverev and now Kyrgios making great leaps forward in the Masters in the past four months it does feel like they will very soon bring this into the majors. I'd say it's a decent bet to make.

Re: Rafa at Cincinnati: I don't like the balls here

The balls will be Wilson in US Open, no? In what ways will the ball change suit Nadal more? What other players will prefer to use Wilson balls and why?

Re: Cincinnati SF: [7] Dimitrov def. [14] Isner 7-6(4) 7-6(10)

The quest for ESPN experts' no.1 ranking in 2018 started HERE. Well done, Dimitrov. Biggest moment in his career, so absolutely stoked for him...

Re: WWW Cincinnati F [7] Dimitrov v Kyrgios

Kyrgios feels like a greater 'big game' player. I fancy him to edge it. Still young enough to play without fear knowing there will be many more opportunities. Dimitrov - he might be feeling he...

Re: WWW Montreal SF: [2] Federer vs Robin Haase

Wawrinka would have a second AO title and more majors than Murray, Berdych would be a majors winner, and Nadal would have a HC Masters title. Ugh - you're right.

Re: Top 5 or 10 shots of 2017

As in players with the strongest serve, etc in 2017, or the actual specific one-off best serve, etc hit this season in a single match?

Re: WWW? Montreal SF: [4] A. Zverev vs. [WC] Shapovalov

Zverev will be too consistent from the back and should get into Shapovalov's service games if he continues to return serve with the quality he did in his match against Anderson. I'd be surprised if...

Re: Montreal R3: [WC]D. Shapovalov defeats [1]R. Nadal 3-6 6-4 7-6(4)

I call bullshit on this one. Having younger players FINALLY step up (Zverev in Rome being the most significant of these) is something neutrals would appreciate. That wasn't happening last year.

Re: Rafa: You(Roger)'re getting old. Stop winning.

I like both iterations of Federer. Sore loser/Murray-baiting Federer (post US 11 semi/pre AO 10 final spring to mind) are more amusing to watch, though.

Re: Rafa: You(Roger)'re getting old. Stop winning.

It's not exactly a revelation that Federer was a massively sore loser (especially throwing shade before/after matches at the other three who were his most consistent rivals in the late noughties -...

Lol at Dimitrov giving up the point almost before Federer touches the ball.

re: Montreal R2: D. Schwartzmann def. [3] D. Thiem 6-4 6-7(7) 7-5 (Saved 4 MPs)

Lol - those who predicted Thiem would finish the year in the top three clearly forgot his abysmal hard court showings.

Re: Federer's winning streak against Nadal - when will it end?

I'd add decent coffee and cheese to this list, but I agree with you in principle.

As to the OP, I just don't believe Federer at 36 - this is now finally true after months (...years?!?) of MTFers...

Re: Washington F: [5] A. Zverev def. [15] Anderson 6-4 6-4

It's these sorts of stats that make me think he's close to bringing it to the majors big time. Granted, it's best of five - another beast - and he'll be facing better players than Anderson should he...

Re: Highest Level in a singular set

Federer IW 2017 first set against Nadal deserves a mention. Ruthless. But the first set he played against Hewitt in US Open 2004 was just a staggering level.
