Isner, Karlovic and Raonic have better serves.Kyrgios has the best serve I have seen since Roddick save the giants
Treesner and Slowovic are the giants @1477aces speaks of; RaoMUG is a giraffe with bad feet. His serve is better when he doesn't withdraw. That doesn't happen often enough.Isner, Karlovic and Raonic have better serves.
Er... Zverev/Fed would be every bit as fun. The real bummer is KG/Z having to clash before semi. That sucks so much. I need to ventNot a chance in hell Berdych beats Federer. Hopefully Kyrgios beats Zverev again so we get the Federer Kyrgios match-up we were denied by a food bug.
Against Z? Not a chance (unfortunately ). He'll withdraw before Fed with a sore toe (ha ha fervently hoping I'm wrong for the sake of my sanity )Man, if Kyrgios can ever fix his attitude he'll be a force. That backhand can create a lot of trouble for opponents - and yes, I know the forehand is the better shot. Unfortunately, I bet he withdraws tomorrow or tanks because he's tired. Here's to hoping I am surprised...
And if he doesn't he'll go nowhere. He was winning the match and getting all the breaks (got awarded a crucial point in the TB which we often see replayed) and still kept whining like a little girl. He's lucky he's playing gentlemen like Goffin; a McEnroe or a Fognini will make him crawl up the wall in no time. Also, I can't imagine umps being thrilled with his bratty behaviour and it's a matter of time before they start retaliating.Man, if Kyrgios can ever fix his attitude he'll be a force...
Actually, Zverev beat Federer in their last 2 encounters: 2016 Halle and at the Hopman Cup this year (albeit the latter being only an exho event) so he does have the experience and that should give him confidence.
Not for 2017. Nick is #1Isner, Karlovic and Raonic have better serves.
On hard courts and likely grass.So kyrgios/Zverev appear to be the guys to watch after Dimitrov has returned to the mug life.
The match between Kyrgios and Goffin tonight was quite amazing. Goffin came out on a mission and played the best I've ever seen him play by far; just insane that he was Kyrgios dominant on serve coming into the tiebreaker in the first set. Meanwhile Kygrios faced a ton of break points and was under an absolute ton of pressure from the crisp hitting Goffin who was pressing Kyrgios as much as he could and often guessing right on first serve. Goffin played far better than Djokovic in his two matches with Kyrgios. It was an amazing tiebreaker by Kyrgios who fought back from a break down and also played roulette on 2nd serve with a massive 134 mph ace. Goffin had Nick under immense pressure. Goffin saved one set point on Kyrgios's serve, but then finally made a mistake in his pressing of Kyrgios with a deep forehand UE for the set. For Kyrgios to win that set took a warrior's mentality (Kyrgios not too expressive with Karlovic match either which was all business due to Ivo playing quite well.)I agree, it's exciting because of the tension, it's just that the guys aren't too expressive at the moment. Glad to be watching though.
