    For the new Filip fans, I posted the last few games of his USO win over Broady:

    By the third set the boys had a large crowd (for a boys final) and people were standing three deep on the ump side with the stands on the other side packed as well.

    This was likely due to a confluence of factors including the boys going three with the girls final completed and people taking a break from (or leaving) Ashe with what was becoming a Djoker blowout on day two of his match against Ferrer. And last but not least the match itself which had great atmosphere.

    Enjoy a glimpse.

    His footwork is as good as some of the pros. Not many players, young or old move their feet like he does He has had good coachiing. Too many young players spend too much time trying to develop a big serve instead of learning to move around the court,

    He does move well.

    Given his size, which may be his biggest deficit, I doubt his serve will be a major weapon so it makes sense to have worked more on other areas such as movement. All the relatively smaller players that make waves have had great movement.

    Two things I got from that video: 3 straight break points, he sliced forehand returns. True, he did break on the last one, but I don't think he needed to be so conservative. He was returning well on other points, so he should keep it up and play his game even when it's a huge point.

    The other, gotta work on more stylish celebrations bro. What's this falling to your knees and getting up a quarter of a second later? Lol

    I should probably take a closer look at the video myself. Was he getting stuck with the wrong grip and forced to slice ?

    And that secondary celebration knee bounce was a bit odd.
