Poisoned Slice

Bionic Poster
Insanity - repeating the same thing and expecting a different result. On top of being imbeciles, these crowds have maxed out their insanity levels. They will never learn.

Could have done without all this drama. That sequence in the first set from 4-2 was easily one of the worst ever that I can recall from Djokovic. Solid persistence to stay alive and go for the killer blow later on. Also seems like a positive indicator that whatever was up with him today shouldn't be hard to deal with.
The first paragraph sounds a lot like our beloved Manchester United.

Does it feel to you guys like Djokovic is tanking? Just a thought. He’s not looking like himself.
I think the man tasted the sweet fruits of retirement, he already came and saw and pocketed all. Nothing to prove, just hanging and doing a designer tanka dee de doodah and will still win.

Hubble is such a servebot - he loses all the points when the ball comes back…
Up to Grigor to close it out now

If he is servebot then so is Medvedev. He is 12% ace. And Medvedev is 10.5%.

Servebot should have at least 15 % I feel.
When I think of servebot, I think of big serve and nothing else like Isner, Karlovic, Opelka sort of falls into that category, Ivanisevic back in the day. Hurkacz does have servebot tendencies but I see improvements in his ground game and it's no wonder that he's performed really well the second half of this season as a result, the 3rd set today notwithstanding.

Hurkacz is good player. He has only problem bringing his game vs big players. But he is frankly better than top 10s like fritz.

He will enter top 10 after this week as ATP finals points will drop.

He's given both Djokovic and Alcaraz problems. Not many can claim that, although everybody is giving Carlos problems nowadays but I digress.

How to root for Grigor and at the same time avoid seeing the sleeveless guy making the finals? :confused:
Be it with or without a sleeve, our only desire is for glorious games of tennis. We mind not the styles of hair or coaches or couches or Boris or Tsisi's silly pater. In the words of Tina Turner: we need a hero.

Posted this before, but seeing Tsistsi vs Humbert shouting SHAME at his returns, my worries were gone. It's all about intensity and passion for him. Great to see him approach his peak again, his slices are better than ever and returns look like they're seriusly improving too but need a larger sample to know for sure.
