The first really surprising result in this tournament.
Admittedly I only watched the last few games but the way Tsitsipas played and served in the first two matches I was convinced he would win rather routinly this one...
Kudos to Rublev who seems to be in a good form and is making quite a nice rivalry with Tsitsipas even though he's less accomplished player between the two.

Stef should tweet Britney Spears and get pointers about how to get rid of the father. This is getting ridiculous. He will never reach his potential if he does not get a real high level coach. Apostolos would be a great coach, for Petros and the futures-challenger tour:dunno:
I love how much his parents love and care (in a dramatic way) but they really need to back off. I don’t feel either that their presence the way it is is doing Stef any favors.

I honestly think it won't matter how much progress Tsitsipas makes with coming to net or backhand improvements under Mark P's guidance unless he gets his parents to back off. They've done their bit. Now they're just stifling, constantly-chatting irritations.

Well done to Rublev! I hope he holds it together in the semis 👍

So it's going to be Djokovic against the boring bunch of NextGen. Congrats Novak, you deserve it!

ATP :sleep: Men's tennis already needs señor Alcaraz to be exciting.

Can't be bothered watching the SFs and F due to the boring match-ups. Luckily I will be on vacation :cool:

In the last game, Tsitsipas' mother stood up and shouted something to her son, only to get denied by her husband who told her to shut up, before himself shouting to his son. What a family. I would have felt pity for Tsitsipas at this very moment if he wasn't a brat of the purest form.
Someone please post this. I caught a half glance at it but would like to see it again. I have huge admiration for Mother Tsitsipas. She is an extraordinarily passionate lady and does not mince her words.

Nadal is closing in on another top 2 YE ranking, longevity, and enhancing his GOAT resume. Now we need Ruud to not win YEC and Nadal will be ranked #2. If you ask Nadal fans at the beginning of 2022, if we would accept a deal where Nadal wins 2 slams and end the year as #2, we would sign up in a heartbeat. Great year for Nadal. Get some rest Nadal and focus on 2023. Defend that AUS OPEN and make the haters cry more! :devilish:
