Dustin Brown beats Sascha Zverev

#13
The first week of Wimbledon is like this anymore. Very unpredictable. Nobody has any real preparation. Anything can happen. I'm not trying to make excuses for Zverev... I mean... the scoreboard is what it is. But it is completely unfair to expect players to have a predictable chance of doing anything on grass. Quite honestly, they need to either add more grass tourneys to give players a chance... or they need to scrap the surface like they did carpet and wood.

Another Dustin fan. Always seems to have something to say on grass - too bad he can't transfer it to at least hard courts. Very entertaining to watch. He's mid 30s now isn't he?

Seemingly a throwback to the days when clay and grass courts presented a whole bulk of tricky "surface specialist" players.

I love watching dustin when he is awake and has shown up to play, one of my favourite players, but at the same time. MAAAAN is zverev in a slump or what! I hate to say it but he has become even worse since Lendl came onboard, but that's probably not Lendl's fault, just Zverev in such a tailspin that no one can help.

I hope he figures out what's going on in his own head soon, and bounces back reborn hard. If Fed ever retired hopefully he'd coach him.

He best rafa twice, at Halle (2014, the match that put Brown in the spotlight) and then Wimbledon 2015.

Brown does best when he's the underdog. When he's actually expected to win he sometimes falters.
He has beaten Nadal on 2 occasions both times on grass: 2014 Halle and 2015 Wimbledon.
How can Nadal be the GOAT if he can't beat Dustin.

Dustin who ?
LOL I thought I had a dream that I was watching highlights of the Zverev-Brown match and Brown won in 3 and here we are.

What's most interesting about the highlights is that Ivan was in attendance (he wasn't at the FO). You can bet he's ditching Zverev's ass if he goes out early at Wimbledon.

Almost as bad as Fed’s early round loss to Sergiy Stakhovsky being defending champion. Hell, Nadal is known to struggle on grass, but that is supposed to be Fed’s surface, so that is just down right embarrassing and definitely keeps him from being a GOAT by your standard.

Good call!

Wish Wimbledon would give him a wild card even though he really doesn't deserve it. Just want him there to see what he does. He'll have to get through qualies.

I am just 'quoting' Kyrgios who said that Nole can't be the GOAT because Nole can't beat him.

There's already something going on imo, or it never really was a proper coaching arrangement in the first place, just advisory. Their relationship feels about as strong as wet tissue paper. Total speculation but i have a feeling zverevs family are always going to be in the way.
