    Dimi is back to losing in the first rounds of clay tournaments - no surprise at all.I was shocked he reached semis at MC.

    smh...Cilic gets up a break in the third and fails to consolidate despite not having faced a single BP on 70+% service points won. Chokic not Closic reappears.

    Cilic serving to stay in the match. Can Harrison pull this one out?

    Edit: going to a tiebreak

    Edit 2: Cilic up 5-1 in the tiebreak I think I can see where this is going

    Edit 3: Yup, Cilic takes it 7-1, Harrison out

    The temporary gremlins have resurfaced.

    Bad pasta for KA to cause his retirement???

    So Nishikori further accentuated his winning % in the deciding sets of a match. He has the highest ever winning % in deciding sets.

    As I time it, just three less butt excavations and he could have been done in under an hour.

    What a strange match between Cilic and Harrison...play stopped due to rain at 3-3 in first set TB, then Cilic wins 2nd 6-1, goes up a break in the 3rd, loses it, wins the TB 7-1

    He's not bashful and does that in public as well as in bathroom stalls.

    If Djokovic makes the QF, it should be enough to preserve top 24 seeding for RG, so he can't meet top 8 before R4.

    What happened to the Shapovalov v. Hasse match? It's been delayed a ton of times.

    Delpossum and his walking between points, ...maybe even more annoying than Nadal's timewasting. Cannot believe I'm saying this.

    I count him at a believable 18-8 since the start of 2017, including the most important 4R AO'17 fail vs fedr. In that same time frame, fedr is a Betterer 16-5.

    He has a career high of 43 and this is only his second time making R3 of a M1000, but sure, since he managed to beat a servebot on clay that means he'll make the SF.

    I wouldn’t say I’m hyped but I’m interested in seeing how he does. Unfortunately I’m going to have to do some work so will only catch bits and pieces of the match live.

    I think Berrettini is poised for a deep run here.

    He used it correctly actually, as literally now officially means both literally and figuratively ^_^

    One of the Webster definitions of "literally":
    : in effect : virtually —used in an exaggerated way to emphasize a statement or description that is not literally true or possible

    Shapo with the break...very interesting to see him on clay with Rafa, who will be looking for revenge and to teach a lesson

    I'm conflicted. I think it'd be awesome if Berrettini won, but I also want Zverev to get the beatdown he's overdue to receive in a hypothetical final with Rafa.

    Edmund up a break over Pouille.

    Shapo takes the first set over hasse in TB. Wasn't he up a break before?
