Zverev had 0-40 at 5-5 in the first set. Didn’t break. Then got broken to lose the set 7-5. For some reason tennis channel thinks people care about the Tiafoe Sousa match
 
Why no handshake for the chair after Taifoe loss to Sousa? Just woke up for tie-break so didn't see if Tiafoe had a beef with chair ump--"heard" he was unhappy with the slippery pink clay--such language!--maybe they should bring back the blue clay. Why no handshake with ump?

There was a point in the match that the ball went out when Sousa hit it. The ump came and overruled it and said it was in. Tiafoe argued and said he was looking at the wrong mark. He was not happy. I guess that’s why lol

I'm going to play contrarian and pick Zverev to win this.
Djokovic has nothing to prove so I'm not sure what his motivation is.
Nadal is STILL the favorite unless an injury comes to light.
Thiem is my sentimental favorite but I fear he will crash out early to some Lajovic type.
Fed is silly for playing this. He should be out playing on grass somewhere.
Zverev is out already

Zverev will be out of the top 25 soon where he belongs. It’s mind boggling that he had such a lucky year in 2018.

M. Berrettini took out Alexander Zverev the great millennial potential top #1 in 5-10 years from now in 1st round action. 7-5, 7-5! Is Lendl still with Zverev? Ouch for Lendl if he is coaching Zverev!

Zverev’s side of the draw is wide open. Who will make the semis? Nishikori?
Why not the Zedraffe tamer, Berrettini? Since M-C 1R loss to Dimitrough he was beaten just once and that was the second of two matches played the same day (Munich final to Garin in 3 sets). He’s also playing at home.

It's a mystery how Zverev isn't doing better. He serves big, has solid, powerful groundstokes, and is a genetic freak.

I can only put it down to a severe lack of confidence.

His second serve is pathetic and he does not have powerful ground strokes. He just pushes the ball back into play about 90% of the time.

He does have power. The pushing is a result of lack of current lack of confidence.

He'll never win playing a pushy brand of tennis, he needs to get it sorted between the ears.
