Rome SF Schwartzman v. Shapovalov

WhiskeyEE

G.O.A.T.
Is the 1hbh the future of clay tennis? Seems you can get better angles with it and you don't need a two hander as much since you don't deal with as much pace from your opponent.

1hbh might be ideal for a lower bouncing clay court with no sunlight and whatnot.

Different if you're 5'5" like Diego though.

Luke Shapovalov Skywalker takes it!
Did you ever hear the tragedy of Luke Shapovalov The Foolish? I thought not. It's not a story Hitman would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Luke Shapovalov was a Ballbasher of the ATP, so powerful yet so foolish he could use his groundstrokes to influence the midichlorians to create unforced errors… He had such a knowledge of unforced errors that he could even keep the shots he cared about from landing in. The knowledge of unforced errors is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing a match, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his opponent all his weaknesses, then his opponent defeated him in the third set. Ironic. He could save others from losing matches, but not himself.

Raonic who?
Hey, for a big lumbering guy whose body won't stay in one piece more than a couple of matches in a row, Raonic has had a pretty good career, not to mention dated a string of supermodels. Seems like he's done ok for himself. It's not his fault people wouldn't acknowledge his limitations and overhyped him.

Shi1match, ESPN cut broadcast in my sh1thole district at 5-5 second set.
I am resuming drinking, which I shouldn’t have stopped to watch this match.
Please let me know final result, and I don’t care if you don’t.

No, as a Canadian I have been very proud of Rao, but I did feel teased a bit. But Canadian tennis is a great spot now.

Give him a chance. There is something different about him this year.

Djokovic will walk all over him though. Terrible match-up for Shapo.
Yes, maybe Djokovic will destroy Denis, but I saw a lot of improvement from Shapo since last year's Paris final.
Anyways, Peque is still pretty solid right now.

They should have filmed this. This story is more interesting than all three Disney Star Wars movies combined.

Don't you have ESPN Play? That's a good alternative.
