I don't know why Fritz is playing pro tennis. He's useless and boring. But he has a nice-looking wife, that's the only positive thing about him.
 
Should he get another job like Steve Johnson lol
He's just 21 and made over 2 million in prize money
SJ got a degree so he’s better prepaired for that second career. Not that Fritz will have a worry...that May department store family money will get him and the family through the rainy days.
 
Paire v Fe final! Crazy fun guy v Next Great Hope.

Guess this makes Felix the youngest multiple finalist since... Rafa?
I believe so; Joe Kovic had three finals and two titles just slightly after turning 19. Nadal’s final in Auckland and title in Sopoty in ‘04 sandwiched his 18th birthday.

Add-on: Muzziah in ‘05 had one final at age 18 (Bangkok) and then a title (San Jose) and a final (Washington) in ‘06, with San Jose as a 18er.

@Mainad may now be happy.

Felix is making his maiden ATP final at the age of 18 years, 9 months and 17 days. Murray was 18 years, 5 months and 13 days when he made his 1st ATP final (2005 Bangkok). He was 18 years, 9 months less 2 days when he won his 1st title ( 2006 San José).

This is not Félix’s first final...recalculate to the Rio final, roughly three months ago.
 
Shapo and Fritz largely beat themselves but FAA should make it quite interesting. I just hope our favourite monsieur can win but stay true to himself and Benoir. I'd love to see another Paire-Fed match - what a lovely paire-ing of dropshot doyens that would be. I'm not sure who I have ahead in that department but it's close.
