lol at Maria yelling at herself for pushing… at least girlie’s self aware
Serena getting to R2 while Halep out R1, I just know PMou kicking his feet not getting the media spotlight he would’ve otherwise gotten from this farewell tour 🤭
Lol, he must really hate it.
But maybe he's thinking long term.
You know, chance to hug the spotlight at the Australian open.
ATP continuing its weak era. Old man Nadal should be licking his lips.
I know you’re memeing but you’re right. Apart from Rafa and Novak, the only man worth a damn at slams is Medvedev.
I'm half serious! I can say regardless of how great they are, them having statistically excellent seasons the past few years in spite of their "old" age is indictivative of a weaker era. Now we have several seeds out, and I don't even know if Med is in top form over the past few weeks to challenge Nadal here.
Where are the US Open Reddit predictions? I want to go all-in with my cute unicorns!
Welcome to our daily dark horse lottery. Today in our "possibly winning but could just as well bow out undignified" section we have Jule Niemeier and the ever so feisty Jelena "Thunder Thighs" Ostapenko. Place your bets as long as the lady balls still fly wide, folks.
Upsets galore. Didn't see it coming. Also halep losing first round. That is insane. More upsets to come.
I think Kyrgios defeats Med and Felix defeats Kyrgios. I just see this happening for some reason
I don't see Felix beating PCB
On paper Felix should be able to beat PCB. Let’s see what happens
On paper Felix should beat most people but a well playing PCB is a tough matchup for someone as error prone as Felix
waking up to see Tsitsipas and Fritz lost in r1.. wow some big upsets already
If you didn't have Galan beating Tsitsipas in your bracket then you have no clue about tennis
wow Holt beat Fritz. Good for him that’s massive
Fritz: 'Been playing really well. Had really high hopes. I feel like an idiot for thinking that I could win this thing, win the US Open. I can't go out and play a match like that. It sucks. I feel awful.'
Didn't care for Fritz for a long time, but as he gets more opportunities to talk now I see he's got good takes and the right attitude.
Can Karatsev take out Fognino tho?
Im new to watching tennis, where can i watch extended highlights of the womens us open matches?
Based on past history, they'll upload a good portion of extended highlights several weeks after the Slam finishes. Unless they do it like AO this year, which I don't think they're doing.
Ooof too many matches today I didn’t realize Kasatkina lost.
Whose victory did you enjoy the most? I was particularly impressed by TvR saving 7 match points to come back from two sets to love down. Galan vs Tsitsipas and Snigur vs Halep were also interesting.
serena jameka fucking williams
Oh Dasha why oh why did you have to lose. It's the fucking first day of the US Open and you are already gone goddamnit.
She started playing like a true WTA top-tenner 😫
Good job by nick now let’s never ever speak of this again. Now if u excuse me I’ve got a person who made this first round draw to hunt
AO might be as fast or marginally faster than USO, but those Dunlop balls aren't that fast. These are fast courts and super fast balls and lots of players just can't adjust. Even the Wimbledon balls are pretty slow. This is just a different type of tennis. You just cannot overhit.
Well, to be fair, no one knew that the Tsitsipas and Fritz matches would be remotely interesting.
Halep , Tsitsipas , Fritz and Roberto it's been quite a 1st Day of Upsets so far at the US Open 2022
Why are they asking kyrgios about Serena Williams in the post match interview? Are we going to do that all the time now?
Americans so obsessed over Serena Williams. Honestly, its annoying
“Americans obsessed over their best player ever”
Let’s tell the Serbs to stop obsessing over Novak. Or the Swiss to calm down over Roger.
There are also non-US people watching
What do they matter
Lets just hope Serena doesnt matter anymore soon. So she wont ruin other peoples win.
Thank god there is no grand Slam in serbia or the Djokovic focus would be undoable
Ikr ... esp this sub, it's completely different than the whole world
Gotta wonder if playing doubles Is the right decision for Nick. Sure they could get beat, but they could also go all the way. As could Nick in singles.
Stef, Halep, Fritz and Kasatkina all going down is a bit shocking. Not the highest seeds ever but 4 people who seemed in good form and were dark horses to win.
What an opening day 🤩🤩
"*Calm down...*" - Kyrgios To Box
"*Have you heard yourself!?*" - Kyrgios' Box
There's a scenario where De Minaur and Kyrgios meet in the QFs here.
I'd love to see that.
Nicks just gonna wreck him again
ITF absolutely set that matchup on purpose lol
No post match thread? Somebody grab the karma!
The real contest will be who can keep their cool better
The way that Serena talks about retirement she has seemed to put it in a way that leaves the door open to do a 180.
Thank god I wanna sleep. Until we do this again tomorrow
I wanna see a double fault cause it’ll be fun
Come on Nick I've gotta sleep
That Next Gen Forehand technique is a huge liability for the forehand return (among other issues it has) and in general when taken time off, not only basing off this match but many others, just that Kyrgios and Kokkinakis are 2 pretty clear examples of that technique.
Yeah, it sucks big time. Guys like Ruud or Tsitsipas with the old school technique have a much more solid shot.
I'm sad it's become an staple for so many young players, it's one of those weird cases where the technique evolution is worse. Djokovic, Nadal, Federer are excellent examples of the modern technique being better for consistency vs the Next Gen, Nishikori also. Zverev and Alcaraz with the flexed wrist and high elbow, for example, both can be exploited on the run, it can give more power to juniors when they are starting but at the cost of consistency. Once you get to that last mile, at the absolute top, when both techniques are maxed out, the Modern one is just better (more reliable) than the Next Gen one.
It's an oversight by coaches. Kids will do whatever it takes to get them the results in the present.
Kygs playing some good tennis but man this hat makes him look like a massive tool lmao
Jack Draper wears his hat in exactly the same way. Whatever makes the player happy/ comfortable
Man 95% of pros look like their mama dressed them but peeps always mad at Kygs hat
Welp, there goes the Fritzsipas quarter final.
Well I’m going to load up some BC weed for the vapourizer. I will watch the tie breaker, and if Kokk wins I’m staying up for the meltdown. If Nick wins, I pass out. Win win.
Edit: gonna be a great sleep
Tsitsipas staved off 8 match points but that 9th one did him in...i still cant believe he lost
Anyone else watch a Kyrgios match and go, “yep, that dude definitely beats up his spouse”? I mean he’s an absolute volcano on the brink at all times
Just you bud, why is it so easy for you to picture someone beating their wife?
It looks like neither of the K's want to be playing rn, almost expecting kokk to throw the end of this set just so he can leave
Just noticed now the Mercedes logo isn't on the net lol
Just now? Lol
Usually it’s different for men and women and they change it in between. This year it’s the same, at least so far.
How have they not fixed the fucked up fluctuating audio yet?
Ayyy the guy who played Bunk in The Wire is sitting near Spike Lee
I feel we're close to a Krgios Chernobyl
Watching the Kyrgios vs. Kokkinakis match and it just sounds like someone in the commentary box is making chewing sounds or eating sounds and it’s driving me insane lmao
Why acknowledge a fan Nick. Jesus h man. Play the game.
I WANT A 5 SETTER BETWEEN THESE TWO
Just how did Tsitsipas lose bro
He lost more sets than his opponent.
Apparently the crowd for Serena’s match was a US Open record with almost 29.5k people
Does the stadium seat that many people?
And this sub still tries to downplay her impact
90% have left after realizing Kyrgios won't be throwing a temper tantrum tonight.
There's still time
A. How much is a “US Open” memorabilia racquet? B. Why?
It feels like we are in the upside down with so many seeds going out today. Maybe Muguruza will get through tomorrow.
When did she last win a match? I can't actually remember
In Toronto she defeated Kanepi.
She won her opening round match in Toronto against Kanepi couple weeks ago.
Oh that's something.
She lost in the first round in Wimby / RG and 2nd round in AO. Sigh.
Yeah. It's been brutal.
Just two mates having a hit
I love me some Leylah but the way she panders to the crowd with NY stereotypes is weird. Her acknowledging 9/11 in her finals speech still wakes me up at night
Well, considering how last years final happened on 9/11 it makes sense to acknowledge it right?
Nah. That’s cringe.
Lmao! Imagine losing sleep over what a teenager said.
Imagine taking everything so literally. Your life must be so hard. Thoughts and prayers.
You're the one taking offense though over an innocent speech 😂
Man, I had an Ashe ticket, but only spent about 20 minutes on Ashe in the end. Still saw a solid 11 hours of tennis, culminating with Tsitsipas's 11 match points.
buying a cheap nosebleeds ashe ticket and then just planting yourself in general admission at armstrong is actually the way to go tbh
ashe is incredible, truly a monument to man's hubris, but unless you are willing to shell out the big bucks for a good seat it's almost never worth it
Ashe is worth it in later rounds, can’t fault anyone for choosing Armstrong over it though. Armstrong is like a cauldron, it’s much more difficult than Ashe in the early matches I think.
That's the loudest the crowd has been all match
Those 2 dudes gave me a bad cop good cop vibes
Why were they in costumes
Y'all need to stop listening to the commentary, he literally only gets mad at himself, the box are trying to support him through him berating himself.
Dude, we can hear him talking to his box and what he says. It's not the commentators creating these ideas. It's Manchild actually saying these things.
He screams at his box all the time… “SAY SOMETHING!! SAY SOMETHING!!” You haven’t seen that?
Of course I have. He has definitely yelled at his box before, the only difference is I can tell the difference between that and yelling at himself and needing advice, you can't tell.
Why can’t I tell? 🤔
You ain't got the big boy sauce needed to not take everything personally to heart.
Hmm I disagree… my dad screamed at me all the time and he still says he’s proud of me 😭
I promise you I've watched 10x more Kyrgios matches than you and these commentators combined. He is yelling at himself.
It's fine, seriously we all make mistakes. I don't need to google examples of the few times he yells at his box, because I know the difference. I'm having facts, try it sometime.
I know it's hard to accept when you're mistaken. All these times you listened to the commentary and got it wrong, not knowing he was yelling at himself. It's fine, you now know moving forward.
So lost, young child. I wish you luck.
I'd forgotten that New Yorkers are the worst. You kind of forget and then you're watching the Yankees play or your mate comes back from NYC and had an awful time or you're watching the USO
And it's like oh that's right. *New Yorkers*
Nothing like generalizing 8.4 million people eh? You sound like the epitome of humanity and definitely not an asshole.
NY Post hunh? You did your own research
And? Your country was formed from the scum and criminals that Britain cast away. But sure, fuck all new yorkers I guess. You're a strange fellow.
Hey, I’m on your side but I do need to point out a lot of Americans who were colonizers were also degenerates from Britain, Ireland, Scotland initially. Germans later. While not always the rule, a lot of people left Britain behind for the new world because they were, effectively, losers.
I only said that because he was generalizing 8 million people so I decided to generalize 25 million, not because I actually believe they're all criminals. Australians are great and I'm friends with a few! What you're saying isn't wrong though
😅 the irony
You do know I'm saying that to make a point right? You can't be that dense...
Of an overpriced, overrated disgusting pile of concrete filled with struggling homeless people and appalling sports fans?
Look at the world's most liveable cities. Sydney is there. NYC isn't.
Imagine hating a city, one of the largest in the world, because of its sports teams. That’s like saying London is awful, look at football hooligans, while overlooking its history back to the Roman Fucking Empire. It’s incredibly simplistic, and if you are American, you might need a lot of the GDP payout that most of the country receives from NY.
Lmao imagine comparing anything Australia to anything after the circus show the last couple years
When we handled Covid and the peak NYer Donald Trump fiddled while America burned?
Not a fan of the flat neckline on the new Nike kit.
"Don't stop me now, I've having such a good time" while focused on Nick giving death stares to his box and shaking his head is fucking hilarious. Well done camera guy!
Leylah admits to not being 100% with her foot injury in the on court interview
If nick loses this set it’s wide open. He’s damn close to the edge.
He’s still pissed from being 40 love up several games ago lol.
Someone clip the 2 pretending to be a statue after getting called out for moving please hahah
Dude needs to chill it with the gum chewing jesus christ
I would be a GF/BF for about 2 seconds - nobody deserves that!
Those two are about to be memes
Those 2 dudes came in like they in a buddy cop movie searching for a suspect lmaooo
I love how whenever a crowd member is acting bad the cameras just pan to them straight away like “your the guilty one mate”
Is Kyrgios finally melting down? Is it time to watch again?
There's no line judges to agitate him further, so it's way more mild
It was a half-hearted attempt so far, but he knows what the people came for and is trying to deliver.
It's the dedication to his craft that sets him apart, really.
Leylah vs Samsung gonna be the match of the tournament 😍
Mary Carrillo may be my most disliked commentator. Doesn’t add anything of value, talks about Serena in non-Serena matches constantly, etc ..
Never could figure out what makes her an expert commentator especially considering she doesn't offer much expert commentating. Never figured out how she got that job to begin with.
Carillo doesn’t like Serena - she fakes it
British commentators talking about Virginia Wade (1977 Wimbledon champion) and Emma Raducanu constantly is worse.
I have to disagree. Carillo has serious unfathomable dislike for SW. And does not hide it.
I watched tonight. What did she say that was negative towards Serena? I didn’t detect anything. It was a 2 hour Serena love fest. It always is on ESPN and the Tennis Channel. She’s been the face of women’s tennis for 20 years. It’s bad business practice to speak negatively about her.
That outfit is fire
Astute assessment from the commentators about the Nick forehand.
“Please stand still”
Proceeds to act like their a statue hahahah
nick, you know it’s not required to yell at your box for chances you didn’t convert, right?
you’re playing nearly flawless tennis. just shut up and get this done in 3
Wow that was IN!
Routine grand slam W for my girl Leylah 🇨🇦🇨🇦
The thing about Nick…. He gets compliments, shakes his head. He’s such a mentally unstable player. Makes it hard to want him to do well
Nice work from Leylah!!!
Halep started well but her Ukrainian opponent had the last snigger
Nick has 3 opponents every match, the guy he's playing against, the umpire and his box
His box cheers him and says nothing but positive things. The umpire is neutral. The real opponent is himself.
What a performance from Leylah. Dodin was really solid and Leylah just played at a very high level
Hopefully Leylah can go on a run this tournament so she doesn't lose too many ranking points.
Boy. How one would love to be a fly on the wall in the Tsitsi men car ride home. Something tells me daddy wasn’t all that pleased. He was hoping to stay through the Giants season opener.
Kokkinakis is the hypothetical result of putting Kyrgios in a simulator and dialing down the flexibility, creativity, quick-twitch/live arm, movement/balance, and temper by about 10%.
(sorry-it’s late y’all)
Kokkinakis' temper has been dialled down a lot more than 10% haha but yes other than that he has a really nice game just can't consistently challenge anyone in the top 20 / 15. He had a good showing against Sinner recently which was awesome
Imagine actually rooting for this guy and being over 15 years old…
This dude is the biggest scum I’ve ever seen in any sport personality wise. Absolutely rotten
You don't watch much sport do you?
Football and basketball are the other two and again I see Nick Kyrgios as the most rotten human out of any player I’ve ever seen
Team sports so individual focus isn't as big. Interesting you think krygios is more scummy than convicted rapists. OK
Why so harsh?
Harsh? It must be harsh sharing a bedroom with that guy like his gf has to
You sound way too bothered, everybody knows he’s an emotional player on court. Dosent make him a scum bag
Box yelled back at Nick “every time” I feel bad for gf!
Being in nicks box must be the most stressful thing
Happy Fernandez got a win in her return !
ITS LEGAL NOW MATE
HELL YEAH LEYLAH
This is a weirdly anticlimactic end to the day
As everyone expected, Kyrgios is the most consistent player in the draw.
