‘Rev vs ‘Lev final wasn’t the expected matchup but it has some potential. ‘Lev broke through vs ‘Dev today for the first time. Can he do it again tomorrow? The h2h is an equally ugly 0-4 for him without winning a set.

Pulling for ‘Lev but head says ‘Rev in 2.

Rooting for Zverev but so disappointed Medvedev isn't in the final. Try as I might I can never find my way to liking Rublev. I hope Zverev has more in his tank for today's match.

I am happy that Tsistsipas, Medvedev and Zverev all had deep runs at Cincinnati.

all russian final. get used to it! russian tennis is last men standing(tsitsipas being half russian- born to a russian mother), zverev both parents are russian.



 
Rublev might win this. Zverev didn’t look great against Tsitsipas and always physically affected. Hopefully Zverev recovers in time for the fight.

If the German does recover I take him to win but we will see.

Should be some wicked shots in this match.
The Rev 2HBDL is a pleasure to witness when it is clicking that forehand can be a point ender as well.
Should be fun fun fun until daddy takes the t bird away.

Heard Zverev puked and ler it out and came out feeling better.
Still remember Pete puking against corretja us open 1996.
Puke matches are epic.

Ons Jabeur last month at Wimby. She also had a worse case of the upchucks in Canada a couple of years ago and had to be led to a court side receptacle. At least a remote corner of the grass accepts being “fertilized” better than HCs.

I was surprised by how well Rublev played yesterday, even in the first set where he lost it 6-2. But I think Zverev wants to win this one and is hungry for it, so I think he will prevail, or perhaps that's just wishful thinking on my part! I like that he didn't give up in the third set yesterday when he was seemingly down and out of it.

Just a few more minutes of waiting for this final to begin! Rooting hard for Zverev but won't be surprised if it goes the other way. If Rublev does something other than just hitting the ball hard and if Zverev can keep from having his usual mental lapses, those are the two things I am looking at during this match.

I wonder what's limiting Rublev from using wider swings? Tight shoulders? Small arms?
