Here we are 4th set TB


dannylenwinn

6-5


dannylenwinn

FAA has to save here otherwise he will face a MP ! (vs Lehecka)


dannylenwinn

Korda: I am flat ! I am not playing my game


dannylenwinn

Lehecka: I have beaten Coric and Norrie


dannylenwinn

What hustle by FAA. And what a point !


dannylenwinn

Czech and Lehecka: I can beat FAA ! And I'm only 21


dannylenwinn

Lehecka looks to take the 2nd set.


dannylenwinn

Hurkacz : I have to use the volleys more. I play a lot of doubles.


dannylenwinn

Hurkacz takes the break in the 4th set. Any Jedi Hubi fans here?


dannylenwinn

It's MP for Khachanov ! He gets it and is through. Huge smiles from him. Into the quarterfinals !


dannylenwinn

Any Ostapenko fans here? She is playing Coco Gauff.


dannylenwinn

Rybakina gets the break vs Swiatek. Still early.


JulGabi

Omg coco is playing Ostapenko tonight?? And no one told me??


Metazz

We have some fire matches tonight standouts being Swiatek v Rybakina and Tsitsipas v Sinner. But hell Hurkacz v Korda and Ostapenko v Gauff are also likely to be great! I just hope I can stay awake, going to have to mainline a lot of coffee!


jeffwingersballs

> Hurkacz v Korda and Ostapenko v Gauff are also likely to be great! I'm so psyched for both. Korda has a real chance here.


simplecitydress

hope ruud is hanging in there 🤞🏻


gre209by

What do you mean?


ReadyComplex5706

I planned to catch up on sleep tonight, but looking at the schedule, I don't think I can. Oh well...


Anck-Su-Namun93

Pegula - Sabalenka/Bencic Sinner - Rune Thats my prediction


Classics22

Would be a wild result for Sinner. He’s 1-4 versus Stef and 0-2 versus Felix. Few real bad losses in there as well


Awilltobemerry

I don't understand AO scheduling. First up on Rod Laver - 7pm est.: a men's Legends match. Pegula v. Kreijcikova: 4th match on John Cain arena after a women's Legends doubles match another doubles match and a men's match. ?


Equidae2

They're doing a lousy job


ReadyComplex5706

Likely they are just starting the real matches later now that it is the second week. Pretty standard.


Arteam90

How's Sinner looking? Nearly losing to Fucs isn't giving me a great impression, though coming back from 0-2 to win does show a certain mental strength which, at times, can be much more powerful than winning comfortably.


katemf

After the second set it was like a different match - Fucs dropped off a bit but Sinner started playing the way you’d expect. Coming back from two sets to love for the first time might give him confidence and he shouldn’t be too tired as the last three sets were so quick and one sided.


dissolutewastrel

If I want, with all my heart, Jessie Pegula to win the tournament...how disappointed will I be at the end of AO 2023?


RA1N30W

best match so far for men singles, other than murray-kokki?


ankhar_premium1

Murray-Berrettini??


Luck1492

Krejcikova/Siniakova could legitimately become one of the all-time great doubles duos So dominant


Sweetcarolinelove

6 slams together so far!


Luck1492

Post Round 3 thoughts: Ben Shelton is really breaking through. Wouldn’t be surprised to see runs at Wimbledon and/or USO as well. Djokovic even hobbled is still Djokovic Rune and Rublev both look great. Think this one probably goes 5. Korda is on the verge of breaking through. Think he can easily match through Hurkacz and make the QFs or SFs. Khachanov is finally showing some consistency on hard courts at slams specifically which is great L. Fruhvirtova got a little lucky but is still quite an excellent player. Excited to see her match up with Vekic. Both Gauff and Ostapenko look great - and this is Ostapenko’s best AO ever. Wonder if she’s finally going to show some consistency at slams. As for Gauff, she just looks ridiculously good right now. Feels like Swiatek is hitting her stride at the right time but so is Rybakina. Expecting a great match. Pegula just looks goddam unstoppable Such a pity thst Sabalenka and Bencic play in R4 - this is a SF-worthy matchup in my eyes


Arteam90

Reading "Open" by Agassi and a lot of parallels when he talks about Sampras looking dead or injured and suddenly "sending his evil twin" and playing great. It's like that sometimes, I guess.


[deleted]

His health issues really shortened his career too. We missed more Federer vs Sampras battle because of them. Outside of clay he was incredible.


Cold-Ebb64

Idk where this new weird copypasta-esque meme about JJ Wolf comes from, but I hate it.


jamesda123

Does the memeifecation of JJ Wolf distract from his brilliance? Perhaps, but JJ Wolf is still JJ "Fucking" Wolf, and his tennis still speaks for itself.


hopez11

I love it


bigcitydreaming

Bro I'm still cut from how the Murray RBA match ended. Not sure if Andy could've lasted a 5th set anyway but he still was keeping it close to forcing a TB then one awful game and one small chance later and it's all over. Not to mention in his interview after he seemed disappointed and genuinely felt like he could win, only his back was sore during serving, no pain in hips or legs


Rickcampbell98

"No pain in his hips or legs" I cast doubt on that, man was suffering from the beginning there. I think he wins this with more rest but the kokk match was literally the longest match of his career and finished at 4am. Andy is always going to be disappointed when he loses, hopefully Andy can get his ranking up so he isn't playing top players in the first round.


Willing-Blueberry130

Can ADM beat djokovic? What is the probability he wins or takes 2 sets


frutigerh

Always a chance, but unlikely. Rune or Rublev in the next round should be his challenge. Plus, the Australian crowd will cheer for Alex, and Djoko will increase his ego and playing ability to spite everyone.


WhirlingClouds

Love the Demon but unless Djokovic's hamstring falls off he has about 1% chance.

Linette only having a career high of 33 feels criminal. She can be so fucking good.

It's understandable, for me it's the Chinese women that get me more confused. Peng Shuai, Zhang Shuai, Zheng Qinwen, Xiyu Wang, Xinyu Wang, Qiang Wang. I really like Qinwen so I know who she is. the others I have to look up a picture of to figure out whose who.

ODRex1

I think he wants to win the Slam record but I wouldn’t call him “desperate”. If he was desperate he would have gotten the vaccine. He wants the record but I think he knows his place in history is secure. There are three GOATs right now. At this point I think best case is someone getting to 25 but I think we are at the 16th tee.


[deleted]

[удалено]


ODRex1

Yep. Of course he wants the record and so does Rafa. But I think judging GOAT on Slams or in other sports championships is a bit silly anyways. And comparing eras outside of 10-20 year spans is silly too. The Big 3 debate will never be settled. Each guy is unique and special.


PigsLiveOakland

Highly depends on the severity of his hamstring but i could see him not playing again until Monte Carlo since he’s barred from the sunshine double anyways


zhuxue1989

If he wins a week later he will be no.1... no room for him to climb...nadal will say he is not happy that Novak focus on chasing slam titles and he is the one enjoying tennis just like what he said 2021... so 2021 part2, he will skip Dubai (chilling), US spring season( can’t go won’t go) ,focus on clay season , beat nadal at French open round16 (2020 final, 2021 semi, 2022 quarter interesting...)and get his 23st slam title.


RedditorMan2020

Yeah, wonder how much he will play on clay


pierwyjsort

Magda no, you need to finish her quickly

Wow we had a bunch of straight set wins last night


Anck-Su-Namun93

Lets fuckin go Magda!!


Dark_Vengence

She is having a good year.


kajdacci

One of the best Magda’s matches ever. Each point ever more amazing than the previous one. She neutralised Alexandrova’s serve like she was a junior


NoirPochette

This is really unraveling for Alexandrova


boldstrategy

This is embarrassing now


valyriaed

Magda aaaa 😍


coszier

Watching some clips from the earlier matches and Ben Shelton has everything needed to win Wimbledon.. something worth noting.


Wakehambake

I thought the same thing went to see if I can get odds on it and sadly no option to bet him yet their offering odds on Bernard tomic ffs haha


coszier

I did some looking around and in the UK SkyBet has him for 100/1


Fluffy-Till8724

Magda is on fire!! No matter what she plays, everything is in!


Cotrika

Very good start of the set for Magda


boldstrategy

Is she injured or something, she has played terrible since the fifth game


BuyXRPFuckTheSEC2

Damn, didn’t realize Fruhvirtova played a doubles match in the evening after another tough 3 setter. Hope she isn’t too gassed by the time she faces Vekic who is a stamina freak.


Dark_Vengence

Nice to see vekic back in form.

A sentence is not a paragraph.


boldstrategy

She hasn't won a game since she broke, geez


Tyson712

Imagine planning an Australian Open trip four months ago, your first time seeing live tennis, a GRAND SLAM, and even better... getting 1/4 tickets to the day sessions. Fast forward to the present day... You are on track for RBA/Wolf + Korda vs Felix I’d be absolutely devastated. Would probably cancel the trip.


fujimouse

There are exhibitions to watch for people who think like this.


Tyson712

How can you compare an exhibition to 1/4 of a slam. What a bizarre and off comparison


fujimouse

I'm not. Obviously it's preposterous. Just like saying Korda/FAA would be a devastatingly bad QF. But if you want the players you deem worthy guaranteed, the option is there 🤷‍♀️


NoirPochette

That is stupid. Why would people cancel that. Like quarterfinals tickets, experience of Grand Slam Oval, musical acts and sitting with people at the middle watching the big screen


Tyson712

Musical acts? What? It doesn’t bother me (I’ve been about six times) but when you have quarter final tickets and the stakes are this high, you’ve paid good money - yeah, you have a right to be pretty down about the situation. Esp RBA/Wolf. Not like you’re seeing the next big thing or a Tsonga in the AO2008


pierwyjsort

I love this Magda, super solid and laser focused. Hope she can keep it up, I'm sure Alexandrova will continue to throw bombs


LeviathanShark

I am going to frame RBA for murder! and he’s going to go to jail for 30 years!


Fluffy-Till8724

Magda!!! One set away from joinimg both Iga and Hubi in the 4 round!!


LeviathanShark

Yes Magda first set


NoirPochette

Well then


Cotrika

Go Magda!


rjcpower

Anyone know who is on track to play each other in the quarter finals? Got tickets!


callmebyyourcheese

If they both move on, Tsitsi plays FAA. And if Djoko beats Demon, he plays winner of Rune v Rublev The top quarter is Nishioka/Khachanov v Korda/Hurkacz And the bottom quarter is Shelton/Wolf v RBA/Paul


pierwyjsort

Magda I love you, pls hold now


Annjul666

Magda is so damn solid when she's focused


Psychological_Bug676

RBA, I will haunt you tonight and steal your horses and your baby for what you just did 😭


_Crazy_Asian_

Just checked the live ranking, it's a little weird to see Medvedev & Zverev at #11 & #12 ...


stoic_trader

So I got over my early AO disappointment to see new interesting stories emerging. The one I love the most is Ben Shelton. 20 yrs old, turned pro last year and started playing at 14 even though his dad was a Pro tennis player. Extremely enjoyable to watch, pure raw power, Hits the FH like there is no tomorrow, serves 210 like its nothing and on top of that he is lefty what else you want


[deleted]

[удалено]


stoic_trader

If opponents can get rattled by a teenager's noises then that should be the least of their worries. He was doing that to nullify the crowd because that was super rowdy, pretty sure his noises are nothing compared to that


dasheeshblahzen

It’s the first time he’s ever left the U.S. and used a passport! It’s crazy he’s so good and wasn’t some junior player traveling the world ever.


stoic_trader

WTF! Man, this is crazy, I thought he was already playing the tourney for a year or so


Salmabutnotsalma

Alexandrova don't you dare bottle this I'm tired and I need to catch the Chelsea-Livsrpool match


boldstrategy

Narrator - "She did"


NoirPochette

Nice Ekaterina


aweap

Neither Alexandrova nor Linette has ever gone past the 3rd round of any grandslam.


curlyhairedyani

Wtf is Ben Shelton’s accent I have watched so many American shows / movies yet it’s a bit something I haven’t heard much at all


AccomplishedAd3484

An Atlanta mixed with Florida accent, apparently. But maybe it's just how he draws out certain sounds. Wiki says he wanted to play (American) football and didn't start taking tennis seriously until 12. That's pretty late for a pro player at this level. Dude is super talented.


curlyhairedyani

It’s kinda smooth to hear I like it. Yeah in his interview he mentioned how he didn’t wanna play tennis but fell in love with it


l0ll1p0p5

I selfishly wanted a 5th set to Murray vs Bautista Agut after I missed most of it watching Djokovic vs dimitrov


jeffwingersballs

If Murrary could have pulled off a straight set win, I'm all for that, but I'm a little happy he's out of the tournament for now. Can't imagine him coming back to win it in 5 sets and playing more tennis. I'm hopeful he is healthy and has a run left in him for Wimbledon.

Planet_Eerie

How dare he celebrate making his first 2nd week of a GS in over a year by beating Reddit's favorite player. Should have been completely poker face in respect to his opponent - just like Murray is after winning his matches, right?


aktajha

RBA has now moved into the american section of the draw


stocktraderdog

Pleasantly surprised to find out Ben Shelton is the son of Bryan Shelton. I had come across the dad's name only once - during the 1994 AO. My then favorite player Jim Courier had to labor for 4 hours and 43 minutes (if I recall the duration right) to beat Bryan Shelton in the first round in 5 sets. That should have been a big indicator that Jim was in a steep decline, but I stupidly kept supporting a lost cause for another couple of years.


Ricardian-tennisfan

4-3, 15-30, FH long after taking control of the point. Yes that’s going to haunt me alongside some other key moments in this match. Even with Murray’s exhaustion this was winnable, just not in 5 sets. Needed to win that 3rd set

dannylenwinn

I think he could beat Novak if Djokovic is injured ! Is Djokovic injured?


temmerson1

Just watched highlights of the dmitri match, clearly not moving well and leaving a lot of balls. Also seems to not be going for down the line backhands whatsoever, but the serve, backhand cross court and forehand generally kept him in it. His movement appeared to improve a little towards end of third set, so it’s possible he is trying to conserve energy/take it easy hoping the injury doesn’t worsen before week 2. I’m doubtful Djokovic is going much further. De minaur next!


hojbjerfc

Lol Novak could sit in a chair and beat push minaur


drvilvp

Murygoat deserves a lot of respect for this performance, to come through Berrettini & Kokk the way he did and pushed RBA to 4. Amazing stuff, he can go home very proud. RBA man, so classy and fought like hell 👏 now please take down Paul
