I know a lot of people are 'down' on this tournament because in the QFs you had so many players that seemed like real stretches to reach a SF, and the guys people were waiting on a breakthrough from didn't break through (Zverev, Thiem, Dimitrov, Kyrgios). But I will say this:
We have #2 in the SFs
And we have the guy who beat #1 (Cilic vs Nadal), the guy who beat #3 (Edmund vs Dimitrov) and the guy who beat #4 (Chung vs Zverev).
And the guy who beat #5 (Sandgren vs Thiem) was in the QFs, too.
So the guys who progressed didn't do it by passing through an empty draw, they are the guys who emptied out the draw. That's good to see.
