What’s the backward hat % for this tourney?
Seems higher than usual.

Yep, I added a weight rack in my big rig to get that extra explosiveness in my right arm while I’m driving cross country with my estranged son whose grandpa will do anything to take him away from me. Only way to keep him is to win the big money/new big rig at an arm wrestling contest and to do that I need to turn the hat around(lock in) and then go OVER THE TOP!

It's like a switch...

If you gave Medvedev Korda's groundstrokes and gave Korda Medvedev's movement their troubles on clay would be over.

Korda's groundstrokes are awesome but I feel that he isn't an explosive enough mover to get to the balls early and capitalize on certain options that would be available to him .

How do Tsitsipas and these Adidas and Nike guys approve of these kits. It's just horrible.

His 2021 kit was dope though.

See the pattern? It takes Nadal or some outstanding performance from another player to beat Djokovic at RG. He has only 2 titles, but would be easily at 6-7 without Nadal. So it‘s not his worst slam, by far not. He is the auto 2nd favorite every year here.

So basically ‘but Nadal’.

We can't say 2018 was injured Djokovic. He chocked the match vs ceccinato. He thought he would be competing for the title that year. 2017 injured.

Is it just me, or does Stans serve look weird? Pretty much not bending his knees and not jumping but more falling into the ball.

Edit: Just watched older videos of him and apparently this is what he does.

And Kokkinakis gifts the break away.
I'd love for Wawrinka to win, but I'm afraid his tank is way too shallow these days...

Ofi wins the "Battle of the Sebis" - his fifth win of the tournament - and cracks the Top 100 for the first time. Good player and good guy, got to see him and chat with him several times as he has long been a regular in the Italian challenger and club tennis scene. He now gets Fogna, who has apparently, and somewhat inexplicably, returned from the dead to make one last push.
