tie break is on
one would think, but as we know umpires are never consistent with who they penalize.This is at least the third match that I've seen where Tsitsipas is warned about on-court coaching. If the umpire had to warn him twice, shouldn't the second warning have come with a point violation? I don't understand why umpires are breaking the rules for him. The problem here isn't just Tsitsipas, but all players can be affected. If another player gets called for that, all they have to say is, why wasn't he penalized? Why am I being penalized? Yes, they're two different scenarios but it's the same problem. You can't let one player off and penalize another.
He's playing some good stuff right now. Tsitsipas just had nothing to hit through him at all. The commentator said that Tsitsipas was the middleweight and struff the heavy weight. Pretty accurate assessment.Disappointed that Tsitsipas lost, but respecting Struff more and more.
Zedraffe donates the break back with a DF at 5-4, 15-40. Five doublettes in five service games. Almost 2 meters tall and there are better WTA service motions.Zverev has the decisive break in the 1st set, breaking for 5-4. Zverev did well to find some good backhands in that game to find himself at BP. Kecmanovic was going after the forehand, but finally sent the off backhand long.
He's been playing bad for so long now, can't even remember the last time I watched a good performance from him.Zedraffe donates the break back with a DF at 5-4, 15-40. Five doublettes in five service games. Almost 2 meters tall and there are better WTA service motions.
Playing Kyrgios does that to your serving strategy!The Serb tamely giving it away in this TB, Zverev up 4-1...
After all those DFs, Zverev comes up with a 132 mph 2nd serve ace lol, 5-1...
He was giving it away for a little bit, three poor points from Zverev, but gets it done on SP #4. 7/6(4).
