asxasy

Tennistv ig just posted the highlight reel from Thiem’s match. It’s so good.

Thiem v Dimitrov is going to be one sexy match


icecreamwithketchup

Domi v Dimi


ExcuseYou-What

I was preparing for the loss and then Like he played the best points ever in the closing stages. People who talk down on Thiem, yall, please. He's genuinely trying. If this wasn't grit, I don't know what IS.


thcm123

I'm sorry I doubted you Domi! But honestly, this match gives me hope that he's on the right track. More importantly, this match will give him confidence that he is on the right track! (He looked much, much better than his last few matches. Yes, there were still a few untimely UEs, but overall, very proud of him!)


Darius0995

Thiem lucky to win that overall. Why he doesn't adjust his return position for the second serve at least to mix it up doesn’t make much sense. Just hands all the initiative to the server every single time.


icecreamwithketchup

Domi fucks harder than JJ confirmed


Sophie-meatloaf

And exhale...


Coach_Caron_Godwin

Those last 4 points were fire. Vintage Domi


The98Legend

Pure guts from Thiem


thcm123

Fuck yeah Domi!!! Things looked pretty dire there for a while but damn those passing shots at the end! SO, SO proud of him. Great match.


dss001

That was a great comeback there. Nice.


orangedgoat

That TB was fucking amazing


Pisces_Mermaid

What. A. Win! Wasn’t pretty most of the time but a hard fought victory nonetheless


Grouchy_Square

Coming in to the forehand was asking for trouble lol. Let’s go Dom!!


etziex

I LOVE YOU DOMINIC


asxasy

THIEM DID IT!!!!!


icecreamwithketchup

FUCK YEAH THIEM


winter_yy

LETS GOOOOO I LOVE THIS MAN


etziex

YES CKCKDJDEJJE


LauraPtown

Does Domi look skinny or have I just not seen him in awhile?


jsnoodles

He’s wearing really baggy clothes.


Grouchy_Square

I was thinking the same


winter_yy

The absolute confidence he has in his capabilities to make a risky shot even at a match point is incredible


icecreamwithketchup

GS Champ level clutch play right here from Domi


Collecting_Cans

Glad I stayed awake. Just to see those two winners. I don’t even care what happens now.


Pisces_Mermaid

That’s when you see the colours of a Grand Slam champion. Fearless shot-making to save two match points


etziex

Marry me Dominic


Relevant-Ad2254

That backhand. How.


orangedgoat

Clutch this domi !


asxasy

Those two shots were absolutely insane to save MP


orangedgoat

Yesss


Grouchy_Square

Didn’t feel like Thiem was bad at all JJ was just so good in the TB


legohotwing

Thiem lmao


winter_yy

Suddenly I am not a fan of this tiebreak


BiscuitMum

Please Dominic 😭


asxasy

Backhand is failing :(


Relevant-Ad2254

Win or lose, I’m proud of JJ’s performance. He’s playing like he belongs in the top 100


etziex

Fucking kill me


manyouginobili

wow thiem and wolf have 90% first serve jeez


etziex

how the fuck did JJ wolf just become the greatest player of all time


winter_yy

What an insane backhand there


icecreamwithketchup

Thiem's BH is the sexiest shot in tennis right now (not counting Fed)


etziex

Level raised so hard in the breaker this is great


orangedgoat

Insane play


Roseha-aka-rosephoto

Are they really going to make Musetti and Gasquet start after midnight?


Pisces_Mermaid

I think I heard comm say it was postponed to tomorrow I might be wrong tho


Roseha-aka-rosephoto

Oh, thanks that has to be for the best.


expectlinear

No! They play at 1 tomorrow :)


Roseha-aka-rosephoto

Thanks!


etziex

It’s playing on an outside court


etziex

YES HOLY FUCK DOMI


orangedgoat

Damn what a point


icecreamwithketchup

Please Domi just clutch out this TB


etziex

Please Dominic


etziex

Goddamn wolf is fast


RomneysBainer

Off topic, but how can I watch the US open without cable?


Roseha-aka-rosephoto

you can stream with ESPN plus for about 6.99 I think but I am not sure they have the final rounds.


RomneysBainer

Not sure that works. I tried that with Wimbledon, and don't think ESPN or ESPN2 are included with ESPN+. I was not happy.

Sounds intriguing, but not sure how to do it. DM me?

RomneysBainer

Thank you. Will search on there. Funny thing is I'm willing to pay, but there appear to be no options to do so on the internet (but I'm not going to wait 3 months to install cable for $400).


disfadbidge007

Thiem's grunts at serve are so irregular. Sometimes he double grunts, once while tossing the ball, another when hitting it. Sometimes he only grunts when hitting the ball. Then other times he grunts after hitting the ball. It keeps catching me off-guard lol.


etziex

He grunts right before hitting the ball and as he hits the ball. I think it’s a timing thing for him.


The98Legend

Late night tennis in the states just hits different


thcm123

Domi’s FH misfiring again these last few games ugh


dss001

these forehands are SAD


The98Legend

Wolf with the dad bod energy bringing it home bois


disfadbidge007

Let's gooo wolfy, bring it home. AWOOOOOOO!


winter_yy

Net cord rigging the game


TWISTIE_

Dominic just looks so off I can’t even explain it


[deleted]

Thiems mental is absolutely in the gutter lol.


Grouchy_Square

That amazing backhand just to flub the swinging volley smh. Swinging volley is a hard shot I will continue to ask my faves to stop trying it FFS


winter_yy

Backhand was FIRING too


The98Legend

Thiem actually throwing


icecreamwithketchup

Please just hold Domi


icecreamwithketchup

fuck


winter_yy

Actually I need to stop jinxing things


winter_yy

Let’s go, Thiem with the break right away


Denny_Hayes

I wonder what happened with the American Tennis-Pickeball war. Just some two or three weeks ago it was the only thing posted about in this sub


FollowingBig7655

all i can think about is how the usta hares putting americans on ashe lmao. only people who have gotten ashe are coco, tiafoe, and sloane, and even then they’ve gotten their fair share of louis armstrong. really, really hoping we can see a stronger presence of home players on our biggest stadium, with serena and venus being the obvious ones, but also coco, sloane, fritz, paul, tiafoe, and korda


winter_yy

Players are back! Must be about to resume play soon. Hoping the weather didn’t mess with Domi too much


winter_yy

They really said “gotta get some music that’ll entertain this crowd… I’m thinking Sweet Caroline” and for Winston-Salem they’re not wrong


Psychological_Bug676

So Vika is starting a podcast… why does this somehow sound worse than a retirement announcement lol


Chosen1gup

She started it early last year. Her announcement was that she’s releasing a second season of it. Kinda funny/sad that no one realized she even had a podcast.


South-Tangerine-1876

if thiem plays in USO next week, do u think they'll put him in Arthur Ashe or Louis Armstrong? Day or night?


ExcuseYou-What

Probably Armstrong or even Grandstand (he was given Mathieu this year at RG). Ashe not until he faces a well-known opponent or later in the draw. And I'm certain he's playing at the US Open unless he's injured again.


icecreamwithketchup

Thiem better not get fucked by another rain delay after that totally winnable match against Hanfmann


winter_yy

Looks like they’re almost done drying center court, hopefully they’ll be able to start again right at 11:15


colby983

No tennis til 11:15 local time??


shegotofftheplane

Stefanos on Serena on TC: “she’s shown that women can do many things in this life.” I know English isn’t his first language, but felt like this could’ve been said better, even though we all know what he meant


winter_yy

Yeah I mean it’s definitely not the greatest phrasing, but I’m not concerned about it for the exact reasons you said: English isn’t his first language, and we all know what he meant. Obviously it’d be one thing if we knew he had amazing English and meant the sentence to the absolutely most literal it could be, but his English isn’t great, and we can easily tell what he was trying to say, with some of the nuance on phrasing being chalked up to it being his third (I think) language


Jack_Flanders

The video of them drying the courts is live, but the sound is actually on about a 13-second loop, at least on the stream I'm watching.


LouWong

Who do I root for? Thiem, or a JJ Wolff victory post? Guess I’ll find out after the rain.


time14528

r/tennis loves thiem 👀


orangedgoat

I don’t get the suspended play it seems the ATP got way too comfortable suspending play. They should continue play unless thunder or lightning.


shegotofftheplane

I hate the Cleveland camera angle, why am I watching it from a drone


South-Tangerine-1876

how do qualifiers at the US Open work? How many players earn the chance to play in the main draw? Also, how many wild cards are there?


asxasy

[https://www.reddit.com/r/tennis/comments/wv2it8/us\_open\_mens\_qualifying\_draw/](https://www.reddit.com/r/tennis/comments/wv2it8/us_open_mens_qualifying_draw/) [https://www.dartsrankings.com/tennis/us-open](https://www.dartsrankings.com/tennis/us-open) lists the wc's


shegotofftheplane

8 WCs and 16 qualifiers


knickgooner10

They should physically move the court to Arthur Ashe and play under a roof


Collecting_Cans

|_|___________,___________|_|           __CLEVELAND__


zombiezebra1990

No more play in W-S today?


duckbigtrain

it says “no play before 22:15” (25 min from now). Take from that what you will.


expectlinear

It’s not raining anymore (source, I live here) so hopefully it’ll start soon!


time14528

Still raining on site :/


expectlinear

Oop I’m like 15 minutes away 🥲 sorry for the false info besties


gabalabarabataba

Hey gang, I'm gonna go to us open qualifiers tomorrow. Who are the young guns I should keep an eye on? Thanks.


Nastypav12

W's: Victoria Jimenez Kasintseva, Linda Noskova, Ashlyn Krueger, Liv Hovde, Linda Fruhvirtova, Maja Chwalinska (all teens except Maja who's 20).


winter_yy

I agree with the other commenter about Dominic Stricker, he’s been playing really well recently. I’d also suggest Giulio Zeppieri, who recently got to the SF at Umag (although that was a clay tournament) and only lost to Alcaraz. But he’s made the draw of some pretty solid tournaments (including RG) and I’m hoping he does well here, too, but I’m not sure how good he is on hard court


solitarysniper

Dominic Stricker, Francesco Passaro, and Filip Misolic look likely to end up at the Next Gen Finals this year. Luca Nardi has also been doing well on the challenger tour as a 19 year old. In fact it's worth keeping an eye on most of the young Italians, a very promising generation of young players is emerging from there.


winter_yy

North Carolina has personally offended me by changing the momentum of this match


expectlinear

I apologize on behalf of my state


winter_yy

It’s ok, I live there too :(


South-Tangerine-1876

Did the greek god send rain down south? Thanks a lot Tsitsipas


winter_yy

I had to leave, but let’s goooo Domi came back to do a third set


duckbigtrain

did Wolf gain weight or is it just the clothes making him look bigger?


LouWong

I was watching the match when he changed shirts and literally said to my wife “I’m pretty sure I look better with my shirt off than him”. 😂


mjenkins_eng

That little thing like not killing the insect and instead just collecting him and letting him fly is why everyone simply loves Thiem. Can’t wait for him to have one last glorious run


shegotofftheplane

Babs playing world #252, she needs this win badly


icecreamwithketchup

Domi's pre serve routine is my favorite. It's so smooth with the frame bounce


jsnoodles

Wait omg Thiem’s outfit is the inverse of Tsitsipas’


Darius0995

Lmao good spot


jsnoodles

Why doesn’t Domi wear shorter shorts?


domithiemsass

I wish he would so we could see that ass even better


jsnoodles

Exactly my point. Rafa and Stef indulge me why can’t he?


domithiemsass

Tiafoe got a dumpy too


Classics22

Dude wears everything one size bigger i’m pretty sure. Felix was wearing the same shorts and they weren’t near that long looking


knickgooner10

Team Thiem


jsnoodles

Aww Pervo.


ryan_scafuri

Wolf might have the lowest ball toss I’ve ever seen. So risky to play that way


domithiemsass

roddick had one, but I agree wolf needs a lower one, his serve isn’t good enough to get away with it. But his coach taught him to do it from a young age and he’s stuck with it, I remember in the 2020 uso the commentators were talking about it


domithiemsass

let’s fuckin go baby


icecreamwithketchup

Come on Domi, we're going 3. LFG


turian_sentinel

Wolfosmash!!


ryan_scafuri

Imagine having the budget to carry multiple shoes in your bag


jsnoodles

I must be flush with cash then


domithiemsass

allez domi


orangedgoat

Hard to believe domi modeled his game after Mannarino


onto_thenext1

When/where did he say that? I’ve never heard of that.


Classics22

Thiem’s backhand is my love language


Darius0995

Jesus, Thiem is now hitting some lovely groundstrokes. Gotta keep up the momentum/consistency.


ryan_scafuri

The shots are there, no question about it. It just comes down to constructing points and stringing shots together. If domi stays the course he can get back to his best


reevejyter

His backhand is great now, but his forehand doesn't look nearly as vicious as it used to. I'm hoping that over the next few months he regains the confidence/ability to really start smashing his forehand again.


ExcuseYou-What

I swear, JJ Wolf is almost always a big stage player. I still remember when he peaked against Tsitsipas in Miami. But then I also remember watching him retire to Donald Young in Atlanta qualifying. So, what's going on, JJ


thcm123

Please Domi - I wanna see the 1HBH match up!


ryan_scafuri

Oh Dominic


thcm123

I’ve said it before, but JJ looks like a male version of Krejcikova


MarbleEmperor

I'm switching from the JJ match to the Barbie K match and now I can't unsee it.


asxasy

Please consolidate the break! I can't believe this.


OddsTipsAndPicks

My best hipster tennis brag is that I watched J.J. Wolf play when he was in college. O-H!!


GreenIcedTea00

Did the TC commentator just say Opelka is getting hip surgery! If he pulls out of the US Open, who is next in line to get seeded?


zombiezebra1990

Good news for Tennis.


aazip13

What?! Is he? I just saw 8hrs ago on his social media he was riding a stationary bike and is in new york so....


ExcuseYou-What

He already pulled out. Cressy is now seeded.


jchristpriv

Cressy was seeded when Zverev pulled out. Basilashvili is now seeded


Grouchy_Square

Come on domi


icecreamwithketchup

Please serve this set out Domi, don't let him break back


StraightTurnpike

I eat my words. JJ is futures champ. He'll have a Richard Gasquet career


[deleted]

[удалено]


zombiezebra1990

Not going to be top20 unless top50 get injured at the same time (for like a year).


Darius0995

Lmao he’s no way near the class of a Gasquet. Dude is mediocre just like a Tommy Paul. Only legitimate players from the US (who will win things) are Fritz and Opelka due to his serve. Korda potentially.


StraightTurnpike

Lol Opelka


ryan_scafuri

In a massive win for us Thiem fans, it appears Dominic has remembered how to properly wear his collar


Darius0995

Hey Thiem, here’s a tip.. why not stand a little more forward on return… holy shit.


South-Tangerine-1876

Backhand Down le Line


MtnLionRawr

Thiem has been inspired by Kyrgios. Great serve, shit attitude, relying on athleticism rather than footwork.


StraightTurnpike

Nick is a far better player all round than Thiem tbh


jsnoodles

This take is so cooked omg


White_Nothing

Are they streaming Winston-Salem using an iPhone 1?


MtnLionRawr

the wake forest av club actually runs the show.


Collecting_Cans

No the tourney is in North Carolina but the camera is in South Carolina


SomersetMackem

Prime commentator just called JJ Wolf "JJ Watt"


simplecitydress

good ole jay watt


[deleted]

How do I watch tennis on Prime in the US? Can I?


White_Nothing

Wolfman with the first set! This will be a big win for him if he can pull it off.


icecreamwithketchup

Honestly not a terrible set from Domi, just a couple of bad errors in the TB to give it up and a loose game to get broken early on. Overall pretty solid, this could definitely be going 3


Collecting_Cans

Thiem this match… Looking kinda limited, *SPECTACULAR SHOT*, kinda limited, *SPECTACULAR SHOT*, kinda lim….


MtnLionRawr

His body language between points kind of sucks. His serve looks very good.


South-Tangerine-1876

White_Nothing

Nah he gotta go work the fields after this match. That corn isn't gonna harvest itself.


zombiezebra1990

Hurts to see Thiem playing like this especially after Coric's comeback... He will never be a top 20 player again.


Pisces_Mermaid

Relax, Coric lost R1 in a challenger to someone ranked outside the top 200 just over a month ago. Dominic will work his way back however long it takes him


icecreamwithketchup

Nice shot JJ but it would look way cooler if you still had the mullet


MtnLionRawr

Does Thiem's footwork look slow to anyone else?


StraightTurnpike

JJ has such amazing swerve in his service action
