James P

G.O.A.T.
Amazed Evans has been able to keep up with Popyrin. Thought he would have faded by now. Potential 0-2 come from behind victory here.

The announcers just said that Evans has only 8 unforced errors in almost 5 sets. Wow. That means that Popyrin has had to pretty much hit winners the whole match. Impressive!

Evans now arguing with the chair that he heart the let machine go off

Meanwhile, Popyrin serving up bombs!

Imagine if you had bet on Evans winning after the first two sets
Popyrin doesn't seem to enjoy 5-setters IIRC, though neither does Dan

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 to
for example if someone travel to spain to train at the nadal acadamy from another country then turn pro are they suppose to play for spain well no right they still play for their own country
He immigrated to the U.S. as a child, became a citizen, was picked to be groomed within the USTA’s Junior development program (only offered to Americans), went pro and reached top 40, then suddenly reverted to playing for Russia when he couldn’t crack into the DC lineup. This is after literally thousands of dollars raised by USO ticket sales and USTA membership fees had been invested in his development by the USTA. The organization threatened to sue him and so a settlement was reached for Bogomolov to repay them $75K.

It’s not a parallel to RNTA, a private for profit business. This is the USTA, the national governing body of the sport encharged by its membership to develop American juniors. USTA was fleeced by Bogomolov. They demanded reparations for their investment and he finally agreed to pay them back.

I hope Gojowczyk can make it to the quarters. Would be nice to have a second second-week qualifier run this year. Would also be nice if van de Zandschulp could do it too.

Medvedev-Evans should have some fun cat-and-mouse exchanges, but also not any real threat of an upset. I’ll definitely watch some of it.

So who is Botic van de Zandschulp? I've never seen him play. I hope they put up a video of highlights of his match tomorrow. I have never ever seen him play and I watch tennis all the time.

So many qualifiers making it to the round of 16!

The thing about Felix is even if he wins the first set I have no confidence that he will win the match. For me all of his matches are up in the air until the end of the match!

I hear you...but he's just taken set 2. Can he keep the play going, or is he going to falter?
