This is what I mean, I honestly don't get bothered by tsitsipas antics, or at least anywhere near having to watch a knighted baby cry on court haha
Hehe that's double gold Olympic champion and double Wimbledon champion, knighted cry baby to you - but yes I agree:)

I an not surprised that Tsitsipas is winning but I am shocked that he’s being 5 sets to be in a winning position

If he gets through today, he will play MUCH better in the next rounds and will probably lose only to Medvedev.
I feel the same. But this is the problem for most next gen they are great one day and terrible the next. Even the big 3 have bad days at slams but the level is never this bad

I hate when people say 04-07 was weak and this era is weak etc but next gen really don’t make it look strong. I don’t care about Tsitsipas or Med etc beating Djokovic it’s a hard task but as least make it through your quarter and it’s respectable
Just give us some good match ups. Live up to the hype and give us some entertainment.

It's painful to watch all the open angles on the court that Murray refuses to take because he wants to set up a situation 6 more shots from now.

Somehow still hasn't figured out that he has a metal hip with limited movement & stamina.
Must be frustrating for him. His strokes and timing are fine and the tactics are theoretically sound but his movement/endurance just aren't up for taking advantage of his current game plan.

Djokovic pounded these two in FO finals.
These guys are so PATHETIC. I hope they NEVER win a slam.
They don't deserve to. This is the worst next gen - I've seen in 30 years.
Hopefully Novak can keep winning for next 2-3 years or maybe even Rafa wins a bit more.

And that’s all she wrote.

Very impressive performance by Murray. I didn’t think he had the ability to stretch Stef to five.

But part of this is also to the discredit of Tsitsipas.

YES!!!! Happy for Tsistsipas! When I saw that he would be playing Murray, a three-time Grand Slams champion, in the first round I knew it would be a tough match. But he got through it and I think he will play better from this point on...
