I just started watching and both players are looking good. Both have more winners than errors. Not sure what match some commenting are watching. Tomic hit some big first serves in that last game.

Everyone talking about Khachanov and Coric, but maybe Hurkacz will amount to something. For now, he at least seems consistent, even beating some top players along the way.

Sometimes average is enough. I think some people expect Djokivic to goat in every match and when he doesn't that means he's playing poorly. He already looks better than IW to me. 15 winners to 8 unforced errors first set is good.
Well yeah, average is enough against Tomic even if he’s playing well. I’m not saying it’s time to panic or anything. This is pretty standard for a top player at the start of a tournament. They rarely play their best to start the week. Not on purpose of course, but they almost always get better in later rounds.

The concerning parts are the way he donated that break (at love, I think?), and how many returns he's missing, even on 2nd serves.

He looked very out of sorts for a lot of the 1st set, regardless of what the numbers say.

Well he called the trainer out right? He has a sore on his thumb from what the camera showed. Maybe he got a little distracted. From what I've seen he looks pretty good.

It's just Robin Fraud gifting big titles to the poor. First he gifted slams to Delpo and Cilic, then a masters title to Delpo and now he has gifted a masters title to Thiem.
Yeah, pretty much lol. Though I still think Djokovic should’ve won that USO and he would’ve beaten Cilic tbh so that wasn’t so much Fed’s fault.

Yeah, would agree with this. Again, not saying it’s time to panic, but I’ve seen Djokovic play much better than that.
