(sorry)
 
Totally off-topic but why do people make up such weird nicknames for players? Like people Calling Novak the name Nole is a little weird but someone told me it can be a nickname for Novak in serbian but WHY are people calling Thiem Tim? Are y'all allergic to saying the actual name?
Because it's funny.

I mean no disrespect to Djokovic but it’s well documented that he’s not exactly the fan favourite, I feel that the crowd could really get behind the winner of this SF match and possibly even cheer for them over Djokovic in the final which as I mentioned, will be huge for the future of the ATP to have a star who is recognisable,

Won’t lie, most non Aussie tennis people don’t know any men besides the big 3 + Kyrgios.
I don't know about that - the crowd tends to rally for the best at their event. Australia has generally been kind to Djokovic.

what is going on now? cannot watch it with sound at the office.
Zverev went to the umpire and said one of the lights went out and it's distracting. My stream hasn't shown what light or why it's so distracting but i assume it's either flickering or has made the balance of lights off-putting when serving. Who knows?

Z in 4......when he's humming along he is the better player out of the two and and he will be a big threat to anyone at the FO.
he wont beat Djok in the final here though

It’s really nothing, one light off and not flickering, I think the player fears is it will turn on mid point and be distracting.

Zverev needs to regroup here. He's been in control for much of this match, can't let the 2nd set and this delay distract him
 
2nd set :- 6-4 Thiem

Set summary :-

A dramatic, yet quite average quality set of tennis between the two. Though, Finally, I can say that thiem had settled down and started playing tennis decently; though still not as well as he did against Rafa. On the other hand, zverev's serve experiences a dip, both in terms of first serve percentage and accuracy; he throws in some double faults as well. The set starts with both players holding serve in their respective games. In the third game, at 1-1, zverev throws in 2 costly double faults to which thiem capitalises and breaks, followed by an easy hold to take a 3-1 lead. In the next game, the German gathers his composure to hold and then breaks back at 2-3 in what seemed s momentum changing game. Being pegged back, thiem would come roaring back in the very next game to break the Sascha serve again and then holds serve easily to go up 5-3. In the next game, despite thiem throwing everything at him, Zverev manages to hold serve and asks the question to Dominic whether he can see out the set. In the 10th and final game of the set, zverev's agressive return gives him the initial advantage 0-15, then at 15-15 the German produces a smash-over-a-smash shot to give him 15-30 advantage on thiem serve. Thiem faces two break points in that game at 30-40 & 40-ad, both due to his errors. Though, he saves them and sets up set point for himself by some brilliant and brutal rallies. On set point, thiem hits a T serve which Sascha can't return and the match is levelled now. As we move into the 3rd set of this match with a slight dip in zverev's serve and thiem pressing less in order to keep errors in check.

Well Zverev may of got the stadium light back on but his own light switch seems to have gone off. He's looking like getting broken here
