lol at Maria yelling at herself for pushing… at least girlie’s self aware


Psychological_Bug676

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 🤭


eros_omorfi

Lol, he must really hate it. But maybe he's thinking long term. You know, chance to hug the spotlight at the Australian open.


throwaway9995ok

ATP continuing its weak era. Old man Nadal should be licking his lips.


WilderWildeWelles

I know you’re memeing but you’re right. Apart from Rafa and Novak, the only man worth a damn at slams is Medvedev.


throwaway9995ok

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.


krasnoloodek

Where are the US Open Reddit predictions? I want to go all-in with my cute unicorns!


kaask0k

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.


Dark_Vengence

Upsets galore. Didn't see it coming. Also halep losing first round. That is insane. More upsets to come.


Psychological_Bug676

I think Kyrgios defeats Med and Felix defeats Kyrgios. I just see this happening for some reason


TheKk-47

I don't see Felix beating PCB


Psychological_Bug676

On paper Felix should be able to beat PCB. Let’s see what happens


TheKk-47

On paper Felix should beat most people but a well playing PCB is a tough matchup for someone as error prone as Felix


Muraria

waking up to see Tsitsipas and Fritz lost in r1.. wow some big upsets already


[deleted]

If you didn't have Galan beating Tsitsipas in your bracket then you have no clue about tennis


CoolstorySteve

wow Holt beat Fritz. Good for him that’s massive


Newfoundland1

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.'


zsotraB

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.


flanker_03

Can Karatsev take out Fognino tho?


canadianRSK

Im new to watching tennis, where can i watch extended highlights of the womens us open matches?


ExcuseYou-What

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.


dasheeshblahzen

Ooof too many matches today I didn’t realize Kasatkina lost.


MarbleEmperor

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.


FollowingBig7655

serena jameka fucking williams


White_Nothing

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.


aweap

She started playing like a true WTA top-tenner 😫


nick170100

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


Earnmuse_is_amanrag

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.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Earnmuse_is_amanrag

Well, to be fair, no one knew that the Tsitsipas and Fritz matches would be remotely interesting.


sriv_ak_04

Halep , Tsitsipas , Fritz and Roberto it's been quite a 1st Day of Upsets so far at the US Open 2022


Amokzaaier

Why are they asking kyrgios about Serena Williams in the post match interview? Are we going to do that all the time now?


Amokzaaier

Americans so obsessed over Serena Williams. Honestly, its annoying


WilderWildeWelles

“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.


Amokzaaier

There are also non-US people watching


WilderWildeWelles

What do they matter


Amokzaaier

Lets just hope Serena doesnt matter anymore soon. So she wont ruin other peoples win.


Amokzaaier

Thank god there is no grand Slam in serbia or the Djokovic focus would be undoable


_Crazy_Asian_

Ikr ... esp this sub, it's completely different than the whole world


Board_Deep

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.


MoreDblRainbows

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.


adam2186

Krygios win Shitispas lose What an opening day 🤩🤩


dannylenwinn

Decent

There's a scenario where De Minaur and Kyrgios meet in the QFs here. I'd love to see that.

goforth1457

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.


this_is_anomie

Thank god I wanna sleep. Until we do this again tomorrow


gimby77

I wanna see a double fault cause it’ll be fun


Jarby316

Come on Nick I've gotta sleep


Zero_dimension98

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.


Earnmuse_is_amanrag

Yeah, it sucks big time. Guys like Ruud or Tsitsipas with the old school technique have a much more solid shot.


Zero_dimension98

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.


Earnmuse_is_amanrag

It's an oversight by coaches. Kids will do whatever it takes to get them the results in the present.


FlyReasonable6560

Kygs playing some good tennis but man this hat makes him look like a massive tool lmao


LushLoxx

Jack Draper wears his hat in exactly the same way. Whatever makes the player happy/ comfortable


rawrghost

Man 95% of pros look like their mama dressed them but peeps always mad at Kygs hat


GeneTakovic2

Welp, there goes the Fritzsipas quarter final.


this_is_anomie

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


DiscGolfer01

Tsitsipas staved off 8 match points but that 9th one did him in...i still cant believe he lost


frankomapottery3

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


newzealander

Just you bud, why is it so easy for you to picture someone beating their wife?


robotbad

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


TmR_99

Just noticed now the Mercedes logo isn't on the net lol


shihtzu_knot

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.


ohheckyeah

How have they not fixed the fucked up fluctuating audio yet?

cyber-slut666

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


frankomapottery3

Why acknowledge a fan Nick. Jesus h man. Play the game.


DBIGLIZARD

I WANT A 5 SETTER BETWEEN THESE TWO #KOKKYRG


DBIGLIZARD

Just how did Tsitsipas lose bro


frankomapottery3

He lost more sets than his opponent.


shegotofftheplane

Apparently the crowd for Serena’s match was a US Open record with almost 29.5k people


rockardy

Does the stadium seat that many people?


Psychological_Bug676

And this sub still tries to downplay her impact


YetAnotherHuckster

90% have left after realizing Kyrgios won't be throwing a temper tantrum tonight.


crawly_caterpillar

There's still time


frankomapottery3

A. How much is a “US Open” memorabilia racquet? B. Why?


thcm123

It feels like we are in the upside down with so many seeds going out today. Maybe Muguruza will get through tomorrow.


estreetpanda

When did she last win a match? I can't actually remember


aweap

In Toronto she defeated Kanepi.


thcm123

She won her opening round match in Toronto against Kanepi couple weeks ago.


estreetpanda

Oh that's something.


thcm123

She lost in the first round in Wimby / RG and 2nd round in AO. Sigh.


estreetpanda

Yeah. It's been brutal.


amoonbird

Just two mates having a hit


Big_booty_ho

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


FlyReasonable6560

Well, considering how last years final happened on 9/11 it makes sense to acknowledge it right?


Big_booty_ho

Nah. That’s cringe.


aweap

Lmao! Imagine losing sleep over what a teenager said.


Big_booty_ho

Imagine taking everything so literally. Your life must be so hard. Thoughts and prayers.


aweap

You're the one taking offense though over an innocent speech 😂


Big_booty_ho

YAWN


aweap

Maguncia

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.


[deleted]

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


frankomapottery3

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.


robotbad

That's the loudest the crowd has been all match


nick170100

newzealander

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.


YetAnotherHuckster

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.


ohheckyeah

He screams at his box all the time… “SAY SOMETHING!! SAY SOMETHING!!” You haven’t seen that?


newzealander

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.


ohheckyeah

Why can’t I tell? 🤔


newzealander

You ain't got the big boy sauce needed to not take everything personally to heart.


ohheckyeah

Hmm I disagree… my dad screamed at me all the time and he still says he’s proud of me 😭

newzealander

I promise you I've watched 10x more Kyrgios matches than you and these commentators combined. He is yelling at himself.


[deleted]

newzealander

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.


[deleted]

newzealander

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.

estreetpanda

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*


PointB1ank

Nothing like generalizing 8.4 million people eh? You sound like the epitome of humanity and definitely not an asshole.

this_is_anomie

NY Post hunh? You did your own research


PointB1ank

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.


this_is_anomie

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.


PointB1ank

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


estreetpanda

😅 the irony


PointB1ank

You do know I'm saying that to make a point right? You can't be that dense...


this_is_anomie

You’re envious


estreetpanda

Of an overpriced, overrated disgusting pile of concrete filled with struggling homeless people and appalling sports fans? Nah. Look at the world's most liveable cities. Sydney is there. NYC isn't.


this_is_anomie

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.


legohotwing

Lmao imagine comparing anything Australia to anything after the circus show the last couple years


estreetpanda

When we handled Covid and the peak NYer Donald Trump fiddled while America burned?


jamesda123

Not a fan of the flat neckline on the new Nike kit.


Metazz

"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!


asxasy

Leylah admits to not being 100% with her foot injury in the on court interview

nick170100

I love how whenever a crowd member is acting bad the cameras just pan to them straight away like “your the guilty one mate”


lovo17

Is Kyrgios finally melting down? Is it time to watch again?


xarmetheusx

There's no line judges to agitate him further, so it's way more mild


Gre-er

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.


Psychological_Bug676

Leylah vs Samsung gonna be the match of the tournament 😍


SorenTheKitten

Mary Carrillo may be my most disliked commentator. Doesn’t add anything of value, talks about Serena in non-Serena matches constantly, etc ..


GeneTakovic2

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.


Tracy140

Carillo doesn’t like Serena - she fakes it


estreetpanda

British commentators talking about Virginia Wade (1977 Wimbledon champion) and Emma Raducanu constantly is worse.


Hydroborator

I have to disagree. Carillo has serious unfathomable dislike for SW. And does not hide it.


Rodneyjj666

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.


robotbad

That outfit is fire


Board_Deep

Astute assessment from the commentators about the Nick forehand.


nick170100

“Please stand still” Proceeds to act like their a statue hahahah


studiousmaximus

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


CHEFjay11

Wow that was IN!


KayleePatts

Routine grand slam W for my girl Leylah 🇨🇦🇨🇦


frankomapottery3

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


turophiles

Nice work from Leylah!!!


estreetpanda

Halep started well but her Ukrainian opponent had the last snigger


TmR_99

Nick has 3 opponents every match, the guy he's playing against, the umpire and his box


YetAnotherHuckster

His box cheers him and says nothing but positive things. The umpire is neutral. The real opponent is himself.


ty5486

What a performance from Leylah. Dodin was really solid and Leylah just played at a very high level


FoodCourtDruid

Hopefully Leylah can go on a run this tournament so she doesn't lose too many ranking points.


frankomapottery3

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.


Collecting_Cans

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)


katemf

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


matt_annechini

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


whyuhavtobemad

You don't watch much sport do you?


matt_annechini

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


whyuhavtobemad

Team sports so individual focus isn't as big. Interesting you think krygios is more scummy than convicted rapists. OK


harzee

Why so harsh?


matt_annechini

Harsh? It must be harsh sharing a bedroom with that guy like his gf has to


harzee

You sound way too bothered, everybody knows he’s an emotional player on court. Dosent make him a scum bag


No-Asparagus3348

Yess leylah.


CHEFjay11

TmR_99

expectlinear

This is a weirdly anticlimactic end to the day


Gotisdabest

As everyone expected, Kyrgios is the most consistent player in the draw.
