I've said for a while the Tiafoe, while on, looks like he can beat anybody but it seem after a set and a half he loses focus or stanima or something. Maybe this is his turn around.

I was kind of sad to see him lose but he could use a little sports psychology to help him deal with the anger. Still, I like the guy and he's quite a talented player.

As for these organizers, these clowns shouldn’t be running even a lemonade stand. Eight matches. Two indoor courts. You start at 11 am. You knew the chances of rain were highly probable. To have those opening matches delayed twice, including to dry the court, showcases the incompetence. It’s asinine for these matches to always start way later than they should. Well after midnight on a weeknight local time? Good grief. Tennis is the only sport that I swear, intentionally wants to turn off the general public and not grow its brand.
Love that some of the Open matches are played in the evening..

His sportsmanship is so bad, it's downright laughable!

I didn't watch this one, but I can just imagine.

Look, it's tennis. The solution to ANY mistake is to just go out and win the next point. Always. You don't have to be as Zen as you do in golf in forgetting the last shot, but it's pretty close.

Any player from an amateur playing his spouse on the weekend to a Grand Slam winner knows there is a solution to almost every problem you are getting hit at you. Whether your game is good enough to make the adjustment is another question, but if you don't enjoy the intellectual challenge of a well-matched opponent, you won't have fun out there playing. I'll go a step further and say one my favorite parts about both playing and watching is when you go to Plan B, or even Plan C, and turn a match around in your favor.

Oh, and after a few years of frustrating injury, I played right-handed again and felt really good last week. My one-hand backhand was singing. I was painting the baseline with ground strokes and clearing the net on slices by inches. I play with a 1990 Sampras-style ProStaff and when you hit that sweet spot, it is like a hot knife through butter, so satisfying.

My wife adjusted and hit good shots to my forehand side, where I do struggle to get good top spin with the smaller racquet head, but I was moving well enough to get many of them back too. That said, she probably would beat me right now if we played a full set, but I am happy that Fall is here and I am moving better and seeing the ball well.

Yeah but this Alcaraz vs Sinner match is taking forever! It’s already midnight and only two sets completed. I can’t finish watching because I have to go to bed now since I have to get up early in the morning for a dentist appointment. But keep me posted on how the match went!

2:50 am. Brilliant organizing yet again. Thousands of empty seats. And too bad. I hear it was a brilliantly played match. Again, how can these matches be allowed to start so late? Put the pedal to the metal guys. No reason for the Pegula-Swiatek match to wait until 7:00 pm eastern to begin.

So glad to hear Alcaraz won! I figured the match was going to last at least five hours. The match was really competitive and in two hours, only two sets were completed. So we were averaging one hour per set.
