Well done to Stefanos. Very impressed with his composure.

Year end #1 now very much in reach for Nadal, if he can come out fresh and put in good performances on the indoor courts.

With Novak's shoulder problem Nadal can just take the rest of the year off.:-D
 
Looked like trouble even after the first set. If Djokovic is going to get easily frustrated by a NextGen guy turning up the heat against him, he doesn't deserve any better. Puzzling considering he faced far tougher challenges in his career than this. He has to change that if he wants more regular success down the road.

Great tennis from Tsits. Congrats. But he better shut his phuck up tomorrow.

Honestly, Tsits is a very smart tactician and just massages his level to keep his opponent at bay. In this case it put some surprising pressure on Novak who looked resplendent in the first set. Novak in a way stole the first set, but Tsitsipas stole the match. Didn't think Tsits had it in him after long match yesterday with Hurkacz. :D

Ok, I didn't expect that for sure. Was it about Djokovic playing bad or Tsitsipas playing well?
Tsits worthless like in Madrid. Somehow already stumbled into wins against Big 3 already in his career (youngest). Now has beaten all three in 2019 as well. Don't even bother watching highlights let alone replay.;) In fact the tennis is so bad right now, might be best to wait until Nadal returns to the clay next year.

You talk as if you won 26 Grand Slams in your career with the way you're crapping on everything! :-D
Just keeping up with the TTW Joneses today.

Sampras destroyed tennis in the US helping found the Tennis Channel; just doing my best.;)

Stefanos' reaction shows that players do care about the YEC unlike what we read here.

Tsitsipas got excited about qualifying for the "Next Gen Finals" on Twitter. Does anyone give a crap about the NextGen tournament?

Let's not get carried away. He's a young man near the start of his career. He get' s excited by everything at this point. I got excited the first time I touched a girls boob. After awhile you get used to it. Lol! His reaction doesn't make YEC any more important.
