Hewitt fan defeats Nadal fan. Quite entertaining stuff. Absolutely amazing MP saved by Munar in the 4th set and celebrations straight from Nadal's book (he saved 5 MPs!). Can't get used to this format: 2nd and 3rd set ended before I realized what's going on. At 40-0 the commentator said "4 MPs" and I was like what the hell is he talking about? He also described the match as "marathon" after 1h50min :lol: I like Minotaur's game.

Alex should've won way easier tbh, glad he still won it in the end

They're not fans, Nadal and Hewitt are mentoring them.

It's no ad scoring so deuce would be deciding pt, meaning a MP and BP simultaneously.

Im very proud of Munar.
He is the next Spanish Star.
He's a bit under the radar

But that's a good thing. Spanish tennis needs new blood as the legends won't be around for ever.

A fun match that I didn't get to see! What was the deal about no TV coverage in the US? Since I had read it was a fast indoor court I expected Alex to win this match. I still like Munar, but a fast indoor court just isn't his best surface.

I think Amazon bought this event. They're trialing a kind of sports network on Prime in the UK, I think this is one of their same forays into this in the US.

Thanks so much for the information :) All these places where you can now watch things that used to be only on TV is kind of mind-blowing to me!

It's a no brainer but I needed a while to recall that this scoring system is used here.

That score is such an eyesore. Here is a hope this shit change will never make out of these kids events.
