Hope they switch back (on ESPN2) to the Berrettini-Ivashka match. It's hard for me when I love both players just about equally but I am rooting for Berrettini. Ivashka sure has been playing well lately though. Looks like Matteo will take the second set...

I have no idea who will win that match - Otte or Seppi? Either one is a big surprise making it to the round of 16!
I think Seppi but I feel Otte has been getting experience of big matches at slams and so I think he could surprise.
But I'd like Seppi to win as he's a good one.

Shocked to see that Ivashka took a set, hopefully Matteo will pull through in 4
Nobody else is tbh. Yeah it was a 250 event but Ivashka was in scary form to finish that tournmanet. Totally destroyed Alcaraz who may or may not have been giving full effort.

Berrettini has not looked good. He's getting the job done, but he's not at top form.

Berra is now very much on top. Ivaska can’t handle his FH and he can’t get the ball to the Italians FH enough
The big strapping Italian is working out a few injuries he picked up during his fantastic grass run.
Working into form.
Really like his mindeset.
Has that eye of tiger.
Does not seem to wither after mistakes or getting down.
See a bit more coming over the BH now
Just gets back to work.

Yeah I love his attitude. He’s a cool customer and very hard working professional.

Seppi a break up in set 3. Has he got it in him for another epic?

It's nice and all but really how far can Berry go with that backhand?

Jeez Matteo, that first set point...
I guess no matter which way this match goes, the Djoker is more or less guaranteed an easy QF

Not sure why is everyone underrating Berrettini. With that serve and fh, he can be serious threat for Novak. He will prolly lose, but not without big fight and 1 set in the bag.

He won't win a set. The current Berra is even worse than the F.O and Wimb Berra.
He is playing pathetic. He might even lose in the next round.

He has no bh. It's too big a weakness.

First of all, it’s TTW, where Berry was mocked while he was making SFs at a slam for the first time. Throw out reason and accountability when you describe TTW threads.

His quad may still not be 100%. He won one match on HC after Wimby and looked bad vs FAA the second match. So far at Flushing he has been a bit vanilla, dropping sets in two of his three matches and needing TBs twice to win 1R vs Chardy.

Absolutely PATHETIC from Matteo. He's hardly playing like a top 20 player there. How's he seeded #6.
We will go 5 and he could even lose to this MUG.
DOUBLE BROKEN - even more pathetic. I'm at loss for words.

You could probably bet the over for every match (other than Meddy + Zverev) and come out on top with how many 5 setters are being played.

Have to feel like this is close to the most ever through the first three rounds.

Powderpuff draw. I honestly don't even know if Zed or Med can challenge Novak. I've NOT been impressed by either of them as well.
The first part I can agree with, the second I don't so much. Djokovic isn't playing impressively at all either, and while hopes aren't high I don't think Zed and Med rolling over is a foregone conclusion

We differ on that. I don't think it will be competitive with either of them. The absolute best case scenario is them winning a set. Maybe.
Med is nowhere at his 2019 level.
You need Thiem/Nadal/Wawrinka type player to beat "this" Novak. Med/Zed don't have a prayer.

Berra wins but playing crap in general. He will be eaten alive by Novak in the QF , should Berra win R4 - which looks unlikely.
