Nick today fourth on Grandstand! :rocker2:
If he was injured he should have withdrawn - these half arsed efforts on court and losing him even his most committed fans.Nick lost to Shapovalov 6-7(2) 6-3 3-6. Nick had a tape on his left knee, it's not good sign before US Open
It is not losing to a young up and comer per se that was the issue but the lack of effort - 18 doublefaults, hardly bothering to move to hit.Not a good result for Nick, but it wouldn't be the first time a top player lost in the first round to an up and coming Junior.
I'm sure Nick will bounce back just fine.
