I thought it was really bizarre that he skipped the AO quallies, but what do I know, it paid off for the mad man. He'd have to win 6 straight matches to get as many points as he's earned in Delray Beach. And he's still not done yet. I'm pumped for him.

True. Could’ve ended up being a terrible decision, but turned out to be a great one. Stay in your home state, rack up some points, keep working from the comfort of home. Patient trajectory.

His return game is strong! And his movement is surprisingly smooth for a 6'5 guy. Roddick compared his groundstrokes to Berdych, which is an impressive comparison. I think he's a future top ten.

No surprise. Czech school right there. Berdych like smooth and easy power, and good composure. Improve the serve and he could very soon be the top American in the rankings. And please get Steffi and Andre as your coaches Seb!

Last night they were talking about him and Zverev both growing up around the tour and acting like they’ve been there before. Zverev acts like he’s already won slams. Korda seems less entitled.

You had a great run at Roland-Garros last year and then had that moment with Rafael Nadal, getting his shirt after the match. It feels like you’ve already come a long way since then?

“I always said ever since I was a little kid, I always admired Nadal the most out of any other tennis player. And I always said that my dream match would be to play Rafa on (Court Philippe) Chatrier. To have it happen was an incredible moment and I didn’t want to lose an opportunity for asking for a shirt and for a signature and just to thank him for inspiring me and so many other little kids around the world to play the great game of tennis. I have the shirt hanging up in my room. It’s a moment I’ll cherish forever.”

He made the right call about the possibility of two weeks in a hotel room. Imagine how frustrating that would be after a productive offseason. Two weeks of bitter regression.

Sad to see Tsonga go down at the start of his comeback, but another impressive looking win for Korda. Sonego up next. Should be a good measuring stick, but I expect Korda to prevail.

It was great to see Tsonga back. He will gradually start playing better...prob a big shock to the system to be on tour again. Korda looked great, was hitting very clean and controlled.

Looks like a solid player already. Easy power, good movement, good strokes.

He should develop a strong transition/net game and give himself an edge over his competitors.
