Nole is by far playing better tennis than anyone this tournament, and he is taking grass tennis to new heights with his complete game with no weaknesses. Nole has done everything to perfection, including bot.

As for Khachanov, he needed 14 sets to win 3 matches, was down 2-0 to Tiafoe, and really got lucky his match vs Ferrer didn't go 5 also.

This will be a nice practice session for Nole in straight sets.

I believe Khachanov is just spectacular! He will be very huge soon.
Not many of us on MTF, considering how little attention he gets despite going further here than other more hyped young players (bar Tsitsi).

Edit: Not necessarily a bad thing though to go under the radar.

Tiafoe reportedly got sick which allowed Karen win the last two sets, not saying he didn't deserve it, but I'm saying he hasn't exactly been great in this tournament.

Khachanov is a tremendous ball striker from the baseline like del Po. If he could improve his consistency, he could threaten Top 10 players outside Big 3. The Big 3 have a league of their own, so, generally, you have to go with Big 3 against any player, unless they play each other. Upsets and exceptions can happen.

To be honest I don't think Karen Khachanov is that dangerous, and he was disappointing at the French Open against Alexander Zverev, no plan B whatsoever. I think Novak Djokovic will win fairly easily.

I think Edmund was more dangerous for Djokovic than Khachanov will be.

Novak in 3, perhaps 4 if Khachanov has a great serving day.

Khachanov is a good grass court player ... even scared Federer once... but he did lose in straight sets to Nadal on grass once which tarnish his legacy..
Djokovic in 4..

Djokovic to do infinite ballbounces on every important point once again, the umpire will pretend not to notice once again.

Karen's run ends here, even if he takes a set if his service will be reliable. It was a great tournament for him though. Djokovic in 4.

Djokovic in 4. But it was a great tournament for Khachanov. The third 4th round in a slam and the first outside of Roland Garros. I'm sure we will see him in 2019 in a quarterfinal and soon in the top 20.

Karen is less dangerous than Kyle. The russian plays like Sock without the volley. Novak in 3.
Khachanov has a pretty decent BH which Sock lacks. He was nervy in his opening matches that said.

You’re right! But not good volley like Sock. I think Edmund was more dangerous than Khachanov.
