Being down 6-3 and getting your serve back in a tie-break means you are just one mini-break down. The Pole really had one chance, at 6-5, to try and ace out the set, and when he couldn't, the result was pretty much inevitable.

In the second tie-break down 6-5, the Pole faulted. I told my kids, "watch this, Novak knows what serve is coming and is going to destroy it." And he did.....he got his backhand grip ready and pounced two steps forward on the toss, and blasted a two-handed leaping backhand the Pole politely netted to end the set.

Today was fast, one set each, one break each. Someone will beat him eventually, I don't see him winning the calendar Slam, but whoever that guy is not only has to be the younger and better athlete, but as mentally tough and smart enough to not get "solved" over the course of 4-5 sets.

Way too early to say any of this. Injuries have stifled many a promising career. And you never know what the future holds. If you said back in 2007 that Djokovic would finish his career with more majors than Federer and Nadal, people would have laughed in your face and asked what you were smoking. At the end of 2010, Federer had 16 majors and Djokovic only had 1. It was a seemingly insurmountable gap that Djokovic managed to close in about a decade.

I love her game, so much spin, junk shots, good mobility. She is a fun player to watch, I'm rooting for her to win.

Agree about Alcaraz, but doubt he will come anywhere close to the number of majors as Fed, Nadal, and Djokovic.

You never know how careers pan out. Lleyton Hewitt started out 7-2 against Roger Federer. Then Federer went on to win the next 15 matchups.

The men’s semifinals should both be tough battles.
I will favor Djokovic in every matchup until someone beats him.

Alcaraz has the best shot at doing that, seems to me.

Yes I hope she wins tomorrow as well.
Saw bits and pieces of her match with Sabalenka, she hung in there when it looked ominous, and found a way to win.
