British term iirc. Probably first for cricket but useful for all sports I guess. As a Harry Kane fan I have had to deal with a lot of “flat track bully” allegations over the years for obvious reasons.

Yes, flat track in cricket is a pitch where ball does not swing, no grass on it, no cracks for spin, nothing, just a flat road types where batsman gets the ball in the perfect spot everytime to just belt world class bowlers as if it is nothing. There are batsmen who make runs in such conditions and struggle in other conditions where ball bounces/swings/turns they struggle like mugs- such people are flat track bullies in cricket.

This guy is just gonna wear Fritz out. I can respect the method and tactics. But I hate watching this. It's just not enjoyable at all.

THIS is why they didn't go with Fritz-Novak for the night match. It's an educated guess as to what will be the best match, but I don't think it's unreasonable to go with an all American QF. I was surprised by how many people online thought it was some sort of disrespect to Fritz and Djokovic since they're higher ranked.

Athletically, Djokovic is similar to Virat Kohli. Both fitness fanatics who are still almost as rapid as they were before in their heydays.

Djokovic of course still has shown that he's able to play prime level more consistently than Kohli has been able to in his 30s.

Well he’s lucky it isn’t Carlos on the other side of the net or Djokovic would be 1-5 down, not 5-1 up
Not really. We will see in the final. Novak- Alcaraz is very very competitive. Neither player dominates the other.
Alcaraz won't have much left for the final (if he gets there). He will have 2 brutal 5 setters from Zverev and Medvedev.

Djokovic is serving CRAP. Still won the set 6-1.
What happens if Novak serves well? Does he triple bagel everyone?

It would be nice to just skip all of this so that we can have Alcaraz vs Djokovic part 5 already.

Ngl, I'm kind of looking forward to the night match, which I usually don't say about 2 Americans(I'm American). Tiafoe and Shelton will at least look entertaining even if both are quite flawed.
