Although stef did beat meddy, coric has been SUPERB all week, knocking out ppl like rafa nadal. So im thinking coric in three sets, with one set being a tiebreaker


Flimsy-Piglet-5263

Borna coric please topple stefanos tomorrow even though i like stef. He is coming for Rafa's live ranking.


White_Nothing

Hahaha Ostapenko brought her dog.


AnalJibesVirus

Go Penko Go!


Pisces_Mermaid

Ostapenko is putting together quite the year in doubles. Second title of 2022, after Birmingham, back to back semifinals at Roland Garros & Wimbledon, finals in Dubai and Eastbourne. Edit: also makes the Top Ten in doubles for the first time


Nastypav12

The crowd who stayed for the doubles final are real tennis fans. While other teams have switched partners Lyudmyla and Jelena have been together most of the year and it shows.


jasonkochel

And #2 in the race as a team!


ExcuseYou-What

doubles specialist and fashion icon jelena ostapenko now with a second WTA 1000 title (but still chasing that elusive singles 1000 title) meanwhile, melichar-martinez and perez have lost their second consecutive 1000 doubles final (after toronto). definitely has to hurt (they had set points in the first set).


A-dab

Kichenok/Ostapenko are your women's doubles champions! Beat Melichar/Perez 7-6(5) 6-3


Nastypav12

Yes! Bow to Queen Penko and Lyudmyla.


Psychological_Bug676

Anybody in the Top 30 winning the USO at this point like all the contenders in the mud right now


halfvegan420

so i won both my bets with Coric and Tsitsipas. the question is, who do i bet on tomorrow? i’m thinking Coric and ride the hot hand


Classics22

Bet on whoever you don’t want to win, then you always come out ahead 😁


halfvegan420

trueeeee


jsnoodles

Heard Stef was in the locker room telling Holger he’d still play then turned around and yelled JAAAAA and ran out.


estropeada

Medvedev and Holger's nights both runed .


Psychological_Bug676

So Daniil hit the same number of double faults as Saba today. Aryna please share that mechatronics robot or whatever that is you brought with this man to fix his serve


Patakongia

Ugh stef withdrew from dubs


Psychological_Bug676

Holger gonna be mad and make up a story now. JAAAA 2.0 incoming


Collecting_Cans

^((obligatory JAAA)^)


duckbigtrain

honestly … smart. And one less match for the Cincy organizers to try to schedule tomorrow, which is forecast to be rainy.


White_Nothing

I mean I think there are more people who would want to watch a women's doubles final than some random pickleball match.


shegotofftheplane

I enjoy TC live and they’ve been doing it at the end of each day’s matches this week so why the pickleball now 🙄


Psychological_Bug676

If you do the math and trace back to the origin of this problem, it’s Maxime Cressy who kickstarted Med’s downfall. He’s also half-French maybe that’s why 🤧


uma100

Novak was slicing and volleying against him in the Paris Masters too


shegotofftheplane

I knew Med calling his S&V boring would come back to bite him


Psychological_Bug676

Yeah me too. He should’ve never made it so obvious. Should’ve pretended like he was good at it and use it once every blue moon like Novak


domithiemsass

It’s not just his return position. Nadal and thiem stand really far back, it’s how flat his return is that makes it so easy to volley off of


JoeshpMR

It sucks doubles having to play a final with all that background noise, but I guess they didn't want to postpone until tomorrow.


Drazurh

When is are they going to play the mens doubles semi-final? Tonight? or does Tsitsipas have a potential for 3 matches tomorrow??


peanutbutter_meow

He withdrew from doubles.


Classics22

He withdrew, smart imo


Flimsy-Piglet-5263

Who will be the favorites for Us open ?


QuickRundown

ATP: Medvedev, Alcaraz and Nadal. WTA: Halep, Iga, and like 10 fringe contenders.


reeda312

Halep ain't gonna win it.


rottenmindswriting

Mabye unpopular opnion, but i think kyrigos could be a very good contender for us open. Hes played superb this hardcourt season, and could be a big threat to many players


[deleted]

[удалено]


reeda312

Coco is a favorite over Halep. I think. I watch men's tennis mostly.


domithiemsass

nadal medvedev and if tsitispas wins the final then he’ll be one as well


treyfiddy

didn't switch the channel and got cursed by some pickled ball coverage. fuck me.


Guilty-Knee-8521

Lol


estropeada

When is Tsitsipas's doubles match?


White_Nothing

Da fuck is wrong with Tennis Channel. One minute I'm watching Stefanos taking out Medvedev and the next they got old broads playing pickle ball. SMH.


EveningTomorrow758

Fuck Pickleball


dannylenwinn

What a great tournament Cinci has been, lots of fun. I hope you guys enjoy, have a fun and safe Saturday night everyone.


OliverDMcCall

I don't like pickles, not even with a ball.


A-dab

Wait they're not showing the post-match interview? Or will there not be any post-match interview at all?


uma100

it was on tc plus


TuneSquadFan4Ever

Things I really liked about Stefanos' game today: - His drop shot / slice disguises were *on fucking point* today. - Not just his serve and volleys but his half volleys in general were just amazing. - His court positioning was amazing. He was moving up, playing from the back, and while Medvedev normally outrallies him the fear of the netplay gave him just enough of an edge to stay competitive. Fantastic use of all his weapons. Really enjoyed watching this beautiful, stupid Zoolander motherfucker.


bitchincoffin

Wait is Stef still playing doubles tonight??


Slambodog

WTF, I go to the bathroom and come back to Pickleball? No post match interview? No TC Live?


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

Get this fucking pickleball off my screen


Patakongia

Cry


Metazz

I can't wait for the greek philosopher to hit up twitter after this tournament. :) "If you hear a firework but don't see it was it really set off?!"


Psychological_Bug676

Stef looks genuinely happy. He was grinning by himself. Good for him honestly


dissolutewastrel

I'm sad I didn't get to see it (my stream didn't come through) but I'm happy Stef won. Can anyone post a clip of the after-match handshake? That's what we drama-bitches care about, lol


Psychological_Bug676

There was no bitchiness at all. They’re both now big cats who don’t want to fight


Patakongia

The handshake was so uneventful you didn’t miss any drama


dissolutewastrel

ok, thanks


OliverDMcCall

That was a strange match, flashes of brilliance and madness alike.


A-dab

"Let's gooooo," Tsitsipas writes on the camera lens, which, after a great deal of linguistic, philosophical, cultural, and anthropological analysis, I believe to be an urging aimed at himself, aimed at giving himself the motivation and the mindspace which he likely feels he needs to win this tournament and ascend to higher levels required to win a slam, with the US Open rapidly approaching, which will be the greatest achievement in his career so far


firelord-azulon

can anyone remember what’s the farthest stef made it at the Madrid Masters in his career? I know he’s made both the Monte Carlo and Rome Masters final


OliverDMcCall

He lost to Djokovic in the 2019 final.


firelord-azulon

gotcha, so he’s made the finals of all three clay court masters


Big_booty_ho

Where can I watch princess penko


JoeshpMR

TC+ #2


libbiecy

Those fireworks were set up by Stef because he wants to have a romantic date with Daniil.


Tricky-Author-8226

The last time Medvedev lost in the SF of Cincinnati he went on to win the US Open so...


LovrenIsTheGOAT

But it's not gonna happen this time, sorry Copevedev fans.


YourLatinLover

For real. Not really sure why Medvedev has so many fans around here. Dude's a brat and is boring af to watch. Tsitsipas is also a brat, but at least his game is beautiful.


Jaded-Sapphire3546

Is his game beautiful? I feel like people automatically think that a OHBH makes a beautiful game. It’s one of the uglier OHBH’s, his slice is wobbly and floats most of the time, and despite the results of the night he’s not normally got a very good dropshot, and, while effective, his forehand is weird. He does look pretty elegant at the net, I’ll give you that


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

I did the Tsitsidance and I got my lunch money stolen and a wedgie :(


Jeffersons_Mammoth

Tsitsipas/Coric. Not the final we expected, but I’m all for it


Tracy140

That dance was lame . Huge win for him but meddy got what he needs from cincy . He will be ready for New York


joppa_rd

So lame


jgwil2

Somebody make a GIF of that dance


dannylenwinn

Tsitsipas gets insane crowd love !! Cool cool.. a wonderful night for him. Coric too


MillenialWhoKnits

This win came just at the right time for Stef. He was the better player today. Tomorrow should be a good final.


PrincessGwenllian

Really happy for Stef and at the same time very concerned for Meddy at the US Open. He's just not looking great, someone quick, calm my fears!


EveningTomorrow758

Sorry no can do. I really believe it’s become more obvious that serving and volleying is very effective against Medvedev esp as it’s easier when someone stands so far back like he does. Also it avoids getting into long rallies with him. Stef did it today and Kyrgios did the serve and volleying really well a couple weeks ago. Obv it only works with a good serve and both those players have that and are very good regardless but it’s not a good sign for Medvedev. Players knowing that makes his return game not as strong


PrincessGwenllian

Yeah plus his serve is looking woeful right now and that's something that normally gets him out of trouble. I suppose the only good thing I can think of is that he is playing well below his best and dragged Kyrgios and Stefanos to three sets despite being outplayed.


uma100

Med is still the man to beat without Novak there, he was surprised by Stefanos today. I would be surprised if he doesn't make the right adjustments for the USO


YourLatinLover

In no way is Medvedev the favorite at any tournament that Nadal's playing. Get real.


uma100

The defending champ is not the favorite. Okay.


Nuff_heard

Stef Stans don't forget the doubles semi coming up. Stef helping the intern Rune get some wins.


Jeffersons_Mammoth

Doubles semi and doubles final. Dude’s playing three matches tomorrow lol


winter_yy

Stef writing “Let’s goooo” on the camera was me the entire match if you ignore the parts where I was about to throw up from the stress


Coach_Caron_Godwin

Im shocked by Medvedev's shit serve the most. Only 2 aces for the entire match and, 11(!!) double faults. And its not just this match, his serve has been suspect for a while now


OneTransportation785

Idk why as well. Medvedev's serve is massive like Opelka, Kyrgios, Berrettini But his serve has just not been firing this year


dss001

Since Australia


dss001

What a gift, really. I mean 4 dfs in 1 game is just unforgivable.


JaelPendragon

Tsitsidance everybody! Put your hands in the air!


One-Ball7942

Greek one-handed Jesus saves my day again!!


libbiecy

Let's gooooo


overtired27

They’ve alternated wins for their last 6 matches. It was Tsitsi’s turn and Meddy knew it.


treyfiddy

LETS GOOOOOOOOO


TexanNewYorker

Lolllll that dance! 😂


byraq

Medvedev is still your dad


Psychological_Bug676

Why are all my faves either flops, scrubs or senior citizens?? Hate this sport


darthchloe

It’s okay Meddy nation we were going for the US open anyway ;)


uma100

And all he needed was a real coach that knew how to make adjustments


emeraldeye5697

now he has to play his doubles semifinal ?


TuneSquadFan4Ever

Really want to see Tsitsipas take his volleys into non-Meddy matchups, he's gotten *so good* at it, goddamn. Years of doubles really did him some good. (To be clear, yeah yeah it's not something he can use every match and he already uses them plenty but you knooow)


firelord-azulon

Stefanos Tsitsipas is into his 3rd Masters 1000 final of the year Vamos Stefanos!!


orangeapocalypse

Love Med but he really needs to get better at handling distractions


Cap10Haddock

There is a non-zero possibility that Tsitsipas asked his dad to arrange for these fireworks lol.


YourLatinLover

Hell yes! So glad to see Medvedev lose


ExcuseYou-What

So what do we think guys; the Medvedev v. Cincinnati grievances might be starting to add up 2021 Medvedev hits a camera 2022 Kings Island fireworks wreak havoc hope this doesn't actually add genuine psychological baggage lol


MrQuitterTheLoser

In an era of big forehands, calling tisi’s FH is just too funny lol.


icecreamwithketchup

Anyway, Coric in 2 with a breadstick


Mookies_Bett

HELL YEAH, LETS FUCKING GO STEF! So happy for him. Stef has had a bit of a down year, but he looked phenomenal in that 3rd set. Way to fucking lock it down.


jack2047

Told y’all to stop bullying him….


Mookies_Bett

Small kid learned how to fight; entire tour fucked


TexanNewYorker

Man they couldn’t find a better picture of Coric??


mnztr1

Tsisipas was in the zone. It was almost a state of zen he was in. Impressive.


mistersmooth1225

HE FUCKING DID IT- AND I WAS HERE


elizamo

😍😍😍😍😍😍


Grouchy_Square

Huge win for stef even if Med kind of collapsed in that 3rd set. Not too far away from number one if Rafa can’t stay healthy rest of the season


firelord-azulon

If Rafa can’t get it, i’d be really happy with Stef getting it.


OliverDMcCall

I wonder what the great philosopher will have to say about this match.


Nuff_heard

Patience and not celebrating early is the key. Bravo Stef


Crusteh_

Well Med fans, see y’all in 2023


cooldude1991

OH SHIT


throwaway739299292

Happy for tits tho. Daniil wins this in 5 so I’m not worried about him at the USO


Kitcheneralways

Medvedev after this match: 'bullshit Greek'


expectlinear

Coric better smack him tomorrow 🤞🏼🥰


jsnoodles

Stef’s reward is having to face Coric aka the reason he was broken the end of 2020 lmaoooo


tsamo

And he has to play in the doubles semifinal too.


jsnoodles

Oh yay go off my king


treyfiddy

that was an anticlimactic handshake hahahah. unexpectedly professional.


winter_yy

They actually made eye contact that time, weird


Psychological_Bug676

Aww they didn’t make out at the net 🥺


katatafish

His fuck will not be shut up tonight.


barcadreaming86

Yoooooo well done, Stef! 👏🏻


thcm123

What a weird match from Meddy


floelfloe

That handshake was prima WTA lmao


emeraldeye5697

omg i love this so much for stef 😻😻


mnztr1

Tsisi is playing amazing


Coach_Caron_Godwin

Im backing Coric on this form. This was a shitty match by both.


GovernmentMule316

Surprisingly warm hand shake


t-a-anderson

What a match. What a comeback. Well done Stef!


DoubleFaulty1

I DEMAND MOAR FIREWORKS!


studiousmaximus

enormous win for stefanos!! meddy just isn’t where he needs to be to defend the USO


Tricky-Author-8226

It is okay, Tsitsipas can have this one. Meddy can have RG.


Earnmuse_is_amanrag

Rare sighting of peak Tsitsipas


SillyLilHobbit

That was his PEAK? lmfao


Mookies_Bett

That game was his peak. Suffocating net play and devastating ground strokes from both sides. He just tends to be inconsistent with that level.


SillyLilHobbit

Oh that I agree with, that was an amazing game by him!


Earnmuse_is_amanrag

Just that game


Choice_Awareness

no thats gonna be w ur mom tonight🫶🏻


SillyLilHobbit

Interesting profile. Honestly didn't think anyone could be this obsessed with tsitsipas lol.

Disappointing loss for Med, is it safe to say that Medvedev has regressed? Despite being a World #1?


uma100

nah he needs to adjust to Stef's adjustments


OneTransportation785

I just hope Med wins USO to keep his #1 ranking. He needs results.
