Our Tommy slight favourite yes. He had zero pressure, nothing to lose and no physical issues. Will be a good one though. Hope you enjoy it.You have Paul as the slight favorite going in I assume? Very difficult to predict, I think it's as close to 50/50 as possible. Could be one for the ages, up there with Rafa Dasco, Novak Wawa 13 and 14, Rafa Dimitrov 17 etc...
I don't know how this compares to the same stage at every other Australian he's won, but he's just a hair shy of 70% games won for the tournament at the moment. That's on pace to be his best ever (according to UTS, 2019 is his current highest at 67.9%). 9 of the 16 sets he's played here have been 6-2 or even more lopsided. Ridiculous level of domination at the moment.More bagels and breadsticks. I think Novak may end this Australian with his highest games-won percentage ever!
Djokovic In 3. Paul knows he has no chance and is simply playing to get his check.
Only a great Tsitsipas in the final against Joker can save us from prolonged boredom.I might be done watching the AO - only because of the early morning start times. Normally I'd power through for marquee matchups, but I doubt I'll watch the semis. Though possibly the finals since they're on the weekend.
