The momentum can easily shift tomorrow. Having said that, this is Sascha in a Grand Slam, he keeps getting into long matches early on, leaving him too gassed to reach the 2nd week. He barely got into RG QF, got hurt, which in turn hurt his grass season preparation.
Fritz is playing a great Match. Way above his level of the last couple of weeks. All in all its a classic Sascha Grand Slam Match. But while he was poor in his early Matches in Paris, here he has to face a opoonent who was on fire. Hopefully Sascha can turn it around, but it will be very intresting to see if Fritz can keep it up!
No but in general that half has reduced so you get guys like Fabbiano within touching distance of second week for easy pt hauls while Kei has one of the roughest sections. Of course Cilic never mugs when in Kei's draw
Not sure if I'll be able to catch the conclusion of this one but I enjoyed today's portion - Fritz really brought his A game and ended on a high with that excellent TB. Zverev has a chance to recover but, while I don't particularly dislike him and won't be devastated if he completes the comeback, I'd rather he didn't win this match.
One thing I've noticed with the Brit commentators ever since RG is how keen they are to build up A. Zverev, especially what a friendly and nice guy he is to the media and off the courts... Well, unfortunately that persona is hardly (if ever) visible on court where most fans are going to get to see and judge him for themselves.
Zverev certainly didn't do much to win them over today, what with complaining about the court/light/whatever and then packing up to leave right after the TB before the umpire had announced whether play would continue or not.
We will continue to simulate the season with the second Grand Slam of 2020 - Roland Garros. The draw for the events will be completely randomized. Qualifiers are randomized as well and the WCs are chosen by me.
ALL-NEW - You may only vote ONCE EVERY TWO HOURS this week AND matches are best of...
I think Devvarman is surely exaggerating but still a hilarious comment nonetheless. Especially because back then his record vs Nadal...
Novak Djokovic wants to set up his own tournament series in the Balkans. The "Adriatic Tour" is to take place from June 13 to July 15 in Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia-Herzegovina, as the Serbian PR department reported. Accordingly, Dominic Thiem from Lower Austria and Bulgarian Grigor...
