Tickets for the rest of the week on ticketmaster are actually pretty cheap right now. Is it because there's less tennis matches to see? I thought they'd get more expensive because it's closer to the final. You can find tickets in the $100-150 range most of this week.

Jimmy Arias, SHUT THE FUCK UP WHEN PLAY IS ON.


DarthPlagueis_

Kyrgios/Wolf is the kind of late night match that just feels like it doesn’t happen at other slams


DarthPlagueis_

Haven’t seen Wolf play yet but just from watching two points I can tell this is going to be a sexy late night match

dissolutewastrel

Poor Venus has now lost in Singles, Doubles, and Mixed Doubles. Will she be back in 2023? Life begins at 43


dissolutewastrel

Just finished watching the Ayoma/Chan doubles team win their match in convincing fashion. At the net, Aroma looks like she's at least 8 inches shorter than everyone else; she looks like a kiddo. Charming


Efendiskander

Cachin and Moutet are supposed to play a Challenger next week, but I feel that the winner of today's match is going to withdraw.


jsnoodles

Is pcb making the semis again this year?


Efendiskander

He doesn't match up well against Medvedev or Kyrgios, so I doubt it. QF would still be a good result, he'd be close to the top 10 in the Race. Lot of points to win at Metz, Sofia, Vienna, Paris then maybe the Masters.


roilingcoilingcolon

Gasquet playing some good tennis


shegotofftheplane

In honor of tomorrow’s Paul-Ruud match, behold one of the [best score lines](https://www.flashscore.com/match/vNigTaGF/#/match-summary/match-summary). Ruud d. Paul at RG 20 | 6-1 1-6 6-3 1-6 6-3


BendubzGaming

Oh shit, if Murray beats Berrettini and Galan/~~Thompson~~ADK, he'll climb as high as #34. Suddenly very realistic he's seeded at next year's Aussie


SanFrancisco_69ers

How do I watch ATP? Want to watch Decamps and Gaio but can't find it anywhere.


Bonoahx

You can watch challengers for free [here](https://www.atptour.com/en/atp-challenger-tour/challenger-tv/challenger-tv-search-results/2022-2795-ms006-nonthaburi-2-gabriel-decamps-vs-federico-gaio/2022/2795/all)


shegotofftheplane

Categorizing the remaining 32 men into their Hogwarts houses (if I don’t know about them, I didn’t include them. Also I’m a Slytherin so no bias here). Gryffindor: JJ Wolf, Draper, Nakashima, Alcaraz Hufflepuff: ADM, PCB, ADF, Ruud, Sinner, Cilic, Tiafoe, Rublev Ravenclaw: Nadal, Murray (bit Slytherin too), Norrie, Schwartzman Slytherin: Medvedev, Kyrgios, Moutet, Evans, Brooksby (ironically looks like Voldemort), Rune, Shapo


Lazy_Left_Eye

Schwartzmann epitomises Hufflepuff imo. Clic could pass off as a Ravenclaw or even Slytherin.


jsnoodles

Ruud: Slytherin in a sexy way. Medvedev is the quintessential smart Slytherin that some people like to sort into Ravenclaw but forget the cunning part. See: Federer.


EffBO94

I think of Murray as a Gryffindor tbh, the way he keeps fighting back from injury, the way he kept coming back after losing all those finals to the big 3, the way he came back from 1 set 5-1 down Sabalenka style to beat Cilic in the 2012 USO quarter final, and how he fights for every point Plus he's Scottish, braveheart and all that lol🤣 Fully agree that Murray's a bit Slytherin as well tho, I think Gryffindors and Slytherins are more alike than they like to admit haha Nadal too is a Gryffindor I think EDIT ; Would love to see a women's version, can't decide where to put Serena except she is most definitely not a Hufflepuff lmao


jsnoodles

That’s why I think of him as a Hufflepuff tbh. Just tries and tries with no giving up. Incredibly hardworking. Maybe overlooked a bit.


EffBO94

That's very true...I think for me what makes him as a Gryffindor what was all that hard paid off and he DID make it to the top, won 3 GS, 2 Olympic gold and the Davis cup, was world number one and forced a big 4 discussion at one point I dunno it sounds harsh but I think of Gryffindors as umm...more... successful than Hufflepuffs🤣 he always had the talent and people always say if it was wasn't for the big 3 existing Andy would've won like 10 Slams, and he's still won 3 even with them around...so that's why I put Andy Gryffindor instead of Hufflepuff cause he made it and players like Cilic haven't yet Sorry to all the Hufflepuffs out there i know how it sounds haha


BoiRacers

Gryffindor: Berrettini Hufflepuff: Paul Ravenclaw: Musetti, Gasquet


Psychological_Bug676

Spot on except I think Rafa is as Gryffindor as it gets


shegotofftheplane

They really put USO 22 champ Samsonova on the parking lot tmrw huh


Chosen1gup

Court 17 is actually the 4th biggest court, despite the name


Psychological_Bug676

They better put Andrey and Shapo in the parking lot. That court 5 is Andrey’s good luck charm istg and it’s always full for him 🥺


shegotofftheplane

All Shapo matches belong in the parking lot until he gets his shit together, let’s be real


Psychological_Bug676

SPILL


domithiemsass

Bweh wins in straight sets anyway


Psychological_Bug676

This sub is the most entertaining whenever Rafa or mury GOAT plays or when some random ass player is peaking against Zverev


Ashnard435

I just don't understand how Nadal keeps on getting away with this. Any half-decent player with a pair of balls should have taken that second set 6-2 and then pushed the match to 5 sets at least. Fognini physically and mentally imploded after going up 4-2 in the second.


WilderWildeWelles

It’s not just Nadal. We’ve watched countless players fall apart against the big 3. Half the game is mental, and having one of those guys on the other side of the court can be intimidating.


Psychological_Bug676

[LOL](https://twitter.com/tennislols/status/1565543051748995075?s=21&t=5__qfQL9WDxEetUeHDfzrg)


shegotofftheplane

Matches to watch tomorrow: -Paul Rudd (ready for the jokes tomorrow) -Murray-Berrettini -Draper-Khachanov -PCB-ADM -Jabeur-Rogers -Keys-Gauff -Andreescu-Garcia -Serena-Tomljanovic


domithiemsass

kyrgios-wolf is definitely one to watch. I’ll be watching med while it’s going on cuz it’s unfortunate they’re happening at the same time but that could be fun


lenny_ray

Good thing we're coming up on a Saturday, and I don't need to sleep or anything.


WilderWildeWelles

This is Medvedev erasure


shegotofftheplane

I’m a huge Meddy fan which is why I’m hoping he has an easy straight set win so I don’t have to watch it since it’ll be boring and straightforward 😌🤞


ScrantonScrangler

TIL Paul Rudd quit his acting career to become a tennis player.


sriv_ak_04

Nadal-Gasquet to meet for the 3rd time in USO the H2H stands 17-0 in favour of the Spaniard which is insane !!!


[deleted]

Poor guy is 3-49 against big 3.


stocktraderdog

I hope Wolf beats Kyrgios.


jaytrain12

hope nick wins


stocktraderdog

The duality of man.


shegotofftheplane

No 5 setters today surprisingly


roamiedumbass

One of my favorite Nadal interview moments was when Courier asked him if he played as himself on tennis video games. He said he liked playing as Federer, because his stats would always be entirely defense-oriented.


shegotofftheplane

Today’s upsets: -Brooksby over Coric (although a lot of us predicted this) -Nakashima over Dimitrov (his form hasn’t been good though) -Gasquet over Kecmanovic (some stupid tennis from Misha) -Ivashka over Hurkacz -Niemeier over Putintseva -Martic over Badosa Match of the day: Brooksby-Coric Comeback of the day: Sabalenka-Kanepi (shoutout to Bencic as well) “Handshake” of the day: Azarenka-Kostyuk Shockingly easy matches of the day: Rublev-Kwon and Muguruza-Fruhvirtova Drama of the day: Coco/JPEG vs Leylah/Saville


tpcooper

Broken nose of the day?


lenny_ray

Med experts, stupid question, but, is a concussion a possibility with a blow to that area? The dizzy comment has me worrying


GrootRacoon

I had a very very similar injury a few weeks ago, felt very dizzy but no concussion, thankfully


WilderWildeWelles

Any blow to the head or face can result in a concussion


lenny_ray

Well, crap. If that's what does him in, it's confirmed he has just the worst luck! Hopefully not the case.


WilderWildeWelles

I wouldn’t say it’s likely, but it could happen. I got concussed from a ball bouncing off my racquet and hitting me in the eye. He’ll probably be fine though.


did_it_my_way

do you guys think they'll put Nadal at night again?


shegotofftheplane

The tennis podcast mentioned that “prime time” on the USO weekends usually becomes the afternoons so maybe Nadal will play the day match


did_it_my_way

yea i don't think they wanna compete with college football for ratings


Grouchy_Square

Feel like it will be Brooksby-Alcaraz if they want to put the best match in prime time. If not maybe Frances Diego?


did_it_my_way

That's what I was thinking... Nadal had two night games already, and he usually has one day game which could be Saturday.


roamiedumbass

Probably not, Nadal usually gets at least one afternoon session in the first week


rubbish_bin030121

Not have same situation with no Serena and no super stars in his half this time, he will get the night if he requires it


themisfit09

Man's enough dehydrated as it is.


cottoncandysedai

No I need to get off twitter because evidently Rafa faked the freak injury


Grouchy_Square

He really started bleeding because of Vaccine complications but you SHEEP don’t want to know the truth


ScottyMcScot

All part of his evil plan.


WilderWildeWelles

You see, your first mistake was going on Twitter


[deleted]

Lol wut


458steps

Are you kidding me?


cottoncandysedai

Unfortunately I am dead serious


Psychological_Bug676

That plaster compliments Rafa’s kit so well. Fashion icon as always 🫶


icecreamwithketchup

He needs a bright pink bandage


lastofoblivion

Idk why but seeing Moya in Rafa’s box gives an extra layer of comfort.


cottoncandysedai

We need Papa Nadal and it will be perfect


Comb-the-desert

I know Gasquet is getting absolutely obliterated in a couple days but it's hard for me not to root for him to break the streak through some miracle... feel the same way about Monfils/Djokovic and Ferrer/Fed, it must be so demoralizing to literally not once get over the hump against these guys given that many shots.


SorenTheKitten

“Doesn’t matter the past” when Rafa talks about his winning record vs. Gasquet. Pure class.


Rodneyjj666

What did you expect him to say? This is literally what any athlete says.


MidnightIsland212

It sounds like someone just had an orgasm in the crowd


Pamander

What in the fuck was that noise lol. You weren't kidding that was a wild sound.


kKunoichi

"Great record" against Gasquet. What an understatement


jasonfrey13

Rafa’s English is so so good now. Pretty much perfect, especially compared to even a few years back


aweap

I think Alcaraz will also slowly become just as proficient, the more exposed he gets to the media...


roamiedumbass

“Your English has gotten so much better” “Please don’t test me now”


shihtzu_knot

When he first started on the tour I would turn the volume up to like 50 and still couldn’t understand him. He’s come such a long way! 🥺


jasonfrey13

Exactly! It’s impressive. He’s fluent in Spanish & English now, pretty decent at French. Idk about any others


sneksobelic

I wouldnt say perfect but pretty good


jasonfrey13

The only thing he really messes up occasionally is pronouns. Like he’ll refer to a girl as “he” or “him” by accident. Other than that I can’t think of anything he really doesn’t know or makes mistakes on anymore


shihtzu_knot

My favorite is “I can’t thank enough the crowd” every single time


ricop

Haha yeah that’s the other area he can trip up in terms of fluency with how we talk nowadays, where to put objects / structure sentences when Spanish has different conventions than English. That quote is perfectly grammatical, but sounds stilted in English compared to common usage.


afccrazy

Serena needs to learn how to be humble lessons from rafa


Makeitperfect

Her dad wouldn’t allow it


Chrisyteen

Rafa is such a good guy, out here answering questions, when you know his face must be hurting.


[deleted]

[удалено]


roamiedumbass

I’m pretty, no?


themisfit09

I want Rafa to say this once.


stocktraderdog

33 games, 15 breaks. Bizarre.


458steps

Just let him go, enough of these questions


HopeistheAnthemLITM

Patrick: ...after hitting yourself in the nose with your racquet....


Zloggt

“It’s only match. Why you heff to be mad?”


themisfit09

Rafa to face Gasquet next. I should be able to breathe in that match right? Right?


aweap

"NOBODY BEATS SIR RICHARD GASQUET FOR AN 18TH CONSECUTIVE TIME, LET THAT BE A LESSON TO EVERYONE!!!" 😡


MonsoonFlood

The real question is whether Rafa will be able to breathe through his nose after injuring it tonight


lenny_ray

NO! We Rafans don't unclench ever.


Grouchy_Square

Even the most pessimistic Rafa fans aren’t worried about Richard.


roamiedumbass

No


Slambodog

Well, that was an insane evening. A friend of mine bought us two Courtside tickets. Got to see the last dance of the Williams Sisters and one of the most bizarre Nadal matches I've ever seen. A W is a W, though


Metazz

I'd say you owe your friend now! Would have been great to have been there courtside!


Slambodog

Yeah, everything about it was amazing


roamiedumbass

Fabio has beaten Nadal on clay more than Federer has. The fuck


Grouchy_Square

Timing is everything in life


adityavarshneya2001

Who's Rafa facing next?


afccrazy

The guy who has worst record against rafa


Makeitperfect

That would be monfils


Gotisdabest

Gasquet is even worse. Monfils has actually got two wins, gasquet does not.


Makeitperfect

Oh wait I was thinking of their records version Novak


themisfit09

Gasquet


TuanNguyen-2507

17-0 isn't a threat tbh


Admirable_Advice8831

no one beats gasquet 18 times in a row tho


buckminster_fuller

Fognini showed some good racket skills but his stamina is not grand slam fit, he got progressively worse, eventually just trying to play standing against Rafa xD


Grouchy_Square

Crazy he came down from 2 sets the other day


TuanNguyen-2507

He did win against rafa in 5 at USO


boogersugarhelp

Anyone know what shoes Rafa was wearing? I didn’t see that color way on the Nike site for any of their tennis shoes


TuhTuhTony

It's the Zoom Cage 3, now discontinued. They only make them for Rafa now unfortunately.


Makeitperfect

He wears a custom shoe with the sole from a previous version and the upper from something more recent. They might release the colors eventually but his exact shoes are never available from Nike


TuanNguyen-2507

Rafa kit is exclusive until the tourney over


Pamander

I actually got a picture of them to show a friend later if this helps you look them up easier https://i.imgur.com/NnpIthr.png


boogersugarhelp

Thank you!!!


Atroxa

How the hell did he manage to do that with a golf club? I really want to know.


FoxInACozyScarf

😂


cottoncandysedai

I am trying to figure it out how that could happen. Like did someone throw it at him? Did he try a backhand with the golf club?


Pamander

That's genuinely even more confusing lol. This man and his poor face.


Unaatennista

That sounds like it would be painful af


afccrazy

This interviewer is whispering


HopeistheAnthemLITM

Patrick: Has this ever happened to you before? Rafa: With a golf club but not with a tennis racquet.


FoxInACozyScarf

Dizzy…oh oh


Unaatennista

Aww Fognini signing autographs


AverageBeef

Kyrgios vs. Wolf is going to be so cursed tomorrow


TuanNguyen-2507

F boy v F boy


katemf

I can’t wait


Grouchy_Square

As troublesome as Fog has been for Rafa, 3 of his 4 wins came in 2015 when Rafa was in his worst form of the last 18 years. 12-1 outside of that (granted still with many close battles)


Pretend_Tea6261

I feel sorry for Gasquet.


458steps

This was too much for a second round match


nicoc9

Good day for seeds, apart from Hurkacz.


Xmastimeinthecity

I love Rafa's pink outfit so much ❤️


h4ssan_

I _want_ to like it, but every time I see him in pink, I get 2009 RG flashbacks 💀


Pamander

Same! Becoming a big fan of the guy based on his fits alone, love the colors! Been loving seeing all the outfits people come out in, definitely some nice variety.


OddsTipsAndPicks

If Rublev keeps it up and can get past Norrie, that could be a fun QF Unfortunately Norrie matches up extremely well against Rublev and *terribly* against Nadal. Well at least for neutrals


TuanNguyen-2507

Rublev v Shapo is crackling tho


OddsTipsAndPicks

Yeah that should be lit. But I have zero faith in Shapo’s ability to get past Norrie.


TuanNguyen-2507

Rublev can but not Shapo imo


OddsTipsAndPicks

Oh yeah, that’s what I meant though not super clear.


afccrazy

Fabio is like hey i was here to just have fun. Time to head back home


Metazz

Classy of Fog to sign those kids autographs even though he lost


dunkerpup

It always meant a lot to me that Djokovic signed autographs after he lost the Wimbledon final in 2013 to Murray. He’s not my favourite player but was very classy and I was incredibly thankful he signed my programme!


Psychological_Bug676

LOOK WHO’S RETIRING NOW LMAO


darthveda

I think me not watching the match after he got broken in second set, turned it around for rafa.


terrebattue1

What a shitshow of a match. It is impossible to figure out if this is Nadal's true form or not because Fognini ALWAYS plays Rafa hard and wins at least one set against him.


Cvspartan

An ugly win but a win is a win


dannylenwinn

Nadal advances to the next round. US Open likes - he will face Gasquet next. Applauses for Fognini as he exits.


Jaden_Ward

Too easy


QuickRundown

King


dannyarr

Bro literally strives under pain


Admirable_Advice8831

totes worth the price of admission at least even for the nosebleed!


sendcheese247

Regardless of Fog's level before the nose injury, it put him in an awkward position afterwards.


Metazz

Watch me transform into a marshmellow, no?


Unaatennista

That was a weird match


allofyourvogues

What a weird match. So happy he got it done.


incarly-

This is worse than the Zverev match good lord


jorgepradop

It's the opposite, the Zverev match had less than two full sets and lasted more than three hours. This one had four sets in less than three hours. Rafa's rival had the freak accident (way worse obviously), in this one Rafa had the weirdest accident I've seen in a tennis match but could pull through


Gotisdabest

I think at this point stuff like a busted up nose doesn't even affect rafa much. Hope it doesn't do any damage to his face though.


jorgepradop

Bald Nadal with a scarred face would be a terrifying look


ScrantonScrangler

Nobody's better at dealing with pain than Rafa. Tis but a scratch.


themisfit09

Vintage Rafa fist pumping


stocktraderdog

Fuck. Finally I can unclench. I was doing day trading at the same time I was following the Rafa-Fog scoreline, and despite being initially in a loss in my trading, I was more stressed out about Rafa winning. Glad that he won and I made a small profit in trading.


OddsTipsAndPicks

Nadal losing the first set: not weird Nadal losing the first set *and* not being able to hold forever: pretty fucking weird Nadal cutting his nose with the racket: I don’t even know End result: totally unsurprising


blackb0xes

See ya, Fogninny.


dannylenwinn

Amazing shot by Fognini !!!!


nicoc9

YESSSIRRR! VAMOSSS! ❤️❤️❤️


Zloggt

Ombiliable once again!

Chrisyteen

Match point! Thank goodness, now please go put an ice pack on your face Rafa! 💪❤️‍🔥


afccrazy

Into R3 Vamos!


Zaphenzo

Rafans after the first set: he's washed. He needs to just retire. Rafa: 6-4 6-2 6-1


TuanNguyen-2507

Any Rafa fans saying that do not deserve Rafa


xarmetheusx

The Pánico^® is real


mimaluna

Rafa needs to get a Band-Aid sponsorship after this


jorgepradop

The marketing guys at Band-Aid gotta be thinking of ad ideas to use this


SushiCurryRice

Rafa is employing Novak's late Wimbledon strategy of losing the first set and then sweeping the next three relatively easily lol. /s


jun9ei999

Yeah the 2nd set was easy 😂😂


SushiCurryRice

Yeah 2nd was definitely close af but I meant more the 3 sets as a collective, so the last 2 sets balances out how close the 2nd was


cottoncandysedai

Thank fuck this is over
