Ruud just too guud for Opelka. So nice too, clearly took this very seriously
They mostly do. You've got a big, fired up crowd, you're being watched by Roger Federer, how many of them want to go out and make fools of themselves?

Bjorn Borg in 2019 in his on court interview after the Tsitipas match said guys turn up for their first Laver Cup thinking it will be a bit of fun and then find out it's a lot of pressure.

Yeah, I'd be terrified to screw up.

Just yesterday watched a George Carlin's bit where he talked about guys wearing baseball caps backwards. Now I'm hyperfocused on Matteo's cap
Funny guy. I don't know this bit, but I don't understand what folks have against the backwards cap. Prefer it when playing tennis to manage sweat (don't usually like wearing headbands).

Some people do (used to do?) that just because they think it makes them look gangsta when they are anythimg but. So it's more about the attitude, not the backwards cap itself. :)

Felix the choker. Should have taken the approach cross court to backhand instead of going dtl to his forehand. Then loses the next point too.

First point in his next service game he approaches to the forehand again when Berretini was already set there (instead of going dtl)

Woah. Pretty nice backhand lob from Berretini forces a third set.

Err. or is it a super breaker the umpire said? I don't remember the format.

Bunting ball up the line probably better than drop volley that he looked to be going for there. B wasn't getting back in the court.
