can we get an early break please fed. just get this done in straight sets.

i assume fed has to get this done in straight sets either way?
Only if Fedr is guaranteed a loss to Djokr, and Thiem loses to Djokr and Berr. Even though Fedr is more likely to lose to Djokr than not, it's not a certainty. Fedr is not out of the SF running as long as he wins today iirc.

Well I tuned in at the end of the first set, will need to go in a bit.

If Roger is going to find any form in this court, this is probably the match to do it. He's still spraying his shots though.

At least it looks as though Roger may be winning this one in straight sets.

Berrettini definitely played better in the first set than he did against Djokovic. So perhaps there is a chance that he could trouble Them on Thursday, particularly if he's already out and has nothing left to lose. But if so, it's a very slim chance. Fed better be ready to take the game to Novak.

Based on the current evidence, I wouldn't count on it though.

Yes, a Thiem loss to Djokr and Berr would help Fedr of course. If so, and assuming Fedr wins today in SS and loses to Djokr, that means Fedr/Thiem/Berr would be 1-2 after RR play. It then comes down to tiebreaks by sets, then games.

Fed should at least take a set against Djok if Thiem loses in 3 sets tonight. Even then Thiem can qualify if he wins a set against Berrettini.

Berr might beat Thiem altogether bc they've been trading wins the last 3 times.

Has Craig o shannessy switched camps to the Berrettini camp? Or does he still work with Novak occasionally? Or is he a free agent?

Fed is so bad at this event lol. Would be a sad state of affairs to see him advance to the semis, unless he really ups his level against Novak.

Though I can imagine all the salt if Fed somehow manages to win this event going 1-2 in the round robin. Would be beautiful.

Fedr wasn't great, but he was betterer than in 1RR. Berr was much better than in 1RR, but was almost broken 3x in the 2nd set (Fedr had 0-30). Thursday should be competitive.

I remember they played one match from both groups on each day in 2013. Anyone know when it changed to being both matches from the same group?

I’m surprised they didn’t give roger the fans favourite award today. Are they really going to make him stay back to collect it after losing to novak?
