Holy ****, Alcaraz breaks Tsistipas immediately!
im not familiar with the story but how is this even an issue? if he isnt a citizen of a country (usa) how could he play for them even if he wanted toI’m happy with his success too. The discussion I was having is about the main draw WC being poorly used by the USTA. Sock is not going to rebuild his career starting at age 29 and he really didn’t do anything in singles even in his prime at USO to merit special treatment.
A minimum $75K check can fund a youthful talent a long way. Now, Sock got it and some of that cash winds up in the traitor Alex Bogomolov (his coach) bank account. If you’re not familiar with his story it’s a gem about the USTA getting fleeced by an immigrant talent coming here from Russia (a good thing), getting a spot in USTA player development (also good) and then after getting to top 40 (really good) he decided to go play for his native Russia (villainous thing) as a pro. Nice guy, no?
I'm watching the replay right now. Absolutely ridiculous call after Johnson served an ace and made him re-serve. I love Stevie's response to the chair "Just wait until I get aced the next time". And then goes on to ace him twice in a row!And Johnson gives em a BEAN on match point to seal it LOL!
