So does my tv have a Chris Fowler sound edit button so I can enjoy the matches??? Cant stand the chris babble
Lol at the umpire making that shoe announcement
Great ace by Shapovalov, looking to take the 2nd set here. Another ace, down the tee. 6-2 in the 2nd set to even it up a set a piece.
Any Alcaraz fans here?
Alcaraz vs Brooksby is underway here ! A highly anticipated match.
Shapovalov gets the double break in the 2nd set. Azarenka goes up 5-2 in the 1st vs Martic.
Flushing Chinese are appreciating Yuan's performance and play, her run from the Qualifiers. They clap, they like. She took the 2nd set vs a top 10 player in Pegula, and that's something to build upon. Crowd appreciates her as she exits
Pegula is through to the next round. She is just dominating. US and Americans like. They love it. Onto Kvitova she goes ! That will be a tough one. A veteran performance, she got it done against a fantastic up and coming player Yuan, the commentators say.
Pegula goes up 4-0 in the 3rd set. Americans are somewhat happy about it
Yuan and Pegula are in the 3rd set.
End it here Petra.
Mugu, here we go, must be ready. Both have similar TB record ratios success.
Kvitova fight ! fight ! Looking to get this to the TB. Yup, she is tasting it. Both ready to battle here in this epic decider.
If Norrie indeed meets Nadal in QFs. Can he beat him? Your guys takes.
Mugu looks to take the match
Norrie through to the 4th round. He will meet either Rublev or Shapovalov. Best wishes.
Norrie gets the break in the 3rd set. Looking to move into the next round now, which is the 4th round.
Rune is playing proper shite since roland garros.
As an Evans, Cilic and Sinner fan, I really need Brooksby to put in a good performance tonight lol
US: Go Brooksby !
Who does everyone want to win. Brooksby or Alcaraz?
I think 90% of this sub are backing Carlos
Medvedev-Kyrgios will be a good one.
I think that Kyrgios is in good form and he is slightly changed as a person.
This is sa great test for him. If he wins here he might go far and it will be a proof that he is better than he was and he finally defeated part of his demons.
Big, big challenge for Daniil too
Not only has Gasquet never beaten Nadal in their 17 meetings, he’s only won four sets vs him, the last one coming in 2008.
How the actual fuck do you describe that.
Poor matchup for Gasquet and mental domination for Nadal.
Nadal will never have that win at Les Petits As in 1999 though
I’m just watching the Ruud match and the MTO Mardy Fish got all bent out of shape over was called for when Paul was serving 1-2? 😂 It’s not like Ruud knew he was gonna get broken before the changeover
It’s cuz Tommy just broke Ruud so his momentum was broken by the MTO. and for those of us viewing from home, we weren’t told of an MTO and it didn’t look like Casper was moving badly or injured so we didn’t know when the MTO was called or anything was even wrong with Casper. Not agreeing or disagreeing with Mardy but just explaining the context
What chances are there that Kyrgios Medvedev is a day match?
Low imo, especially with Serena out. I kinda think day session will be Garcia v Riske and Berrettini v Fokina, night session will be Kyrgios v Medvedev and Gauff v Zhang
Okay why the heck isn’t Iga on centre court tomorrow she’s playing an American and everything.
I think that's more to spare Davis the pain of being double-bageled in front of the biggest audience possible.
No no, Iga only gets early matches on lesser courts.
Ppl on here always talk about how Djokovic fans are the most annoying but [this tweet is so dumb and unnecessary](https://twitter.com/nadaiprop/status/1565892865112231936?s=21&t=1wm6at3_WCjRYspULcdcPA)
the difference is that when a delulu Djoko tweet gets attention they get support by the whole of their base. Nadal stans can gather their own 1 or 2 delusionals and put them in their place
stop acting like every fanbase doesn’t have fans like this. thats not the gotcha you think it is. it’s simply depends on how much fuel and support those types of opinions get.
Their mentions are just them being slammed by Rafa fans lol
If Meddy loses to Kygrios, Rafa will become the world #1 no matter what right?
I think Casper and Alcaraz are still in the running.
If it's a Ruud v Alcaraz final, Nadal can't become #1, even if he go to the SFs. Same with a Medvedev/Alcaraz final btw.
That said, considering Nadal has no points to defend, it's unlikely he doesn't take #1 by the end of the year, only Alcaraz can overtake him in the Race by the end of USO.
Nadal might not play after Laver Cup, it's actually very likely he doesn't get YE#1
It will be hilarious if he gets 3 GS but end up not being YE#1
Don't think it's guaranteed
I genuinely like this generation of Russian players on the guys side at least, give smart answers in interviews, have personalities unlike Kafelenkov (sp), and interesting games. Rubles, meddy, and karastev are all likable, don't know much abou khachanov but nothing I dislike.
Good lord the last person we need to talk about opportunities for people of color is Pam Shriver.
I wish I could upvote you 50 times
No upsets today for men or women’s singles 😳
Medvedev advances and will face Nick Kyrgios. This is a highly anticipated match. He also gives his comments on Serena's last match and farewell. Carreno Busta will be facing Khachanov in the same section of the draw.
Those should be some good matches
From being too busy to see Barty while having dinner to speaking good things about Serena and watching her match, Meddy has come a long way
He knows he lost AO cuz he said he didn’t watch Barty lol. He was stupid for that tbh. Everyone in that stadium was there to see Barty, of course they were gonna boo him in the final for dismissing her. So he’s learned his lesson and knows Serena will get him some crowd love.
Honestly I'd just love for Serena to unretire just to stick it in the faces of the media; it's *sooooo* nauseating how much they try to milk stories.
Do you not understand that the media is a business? Look at the crowds she drew and say there’s not enough demand for extensive coverage on her.
Good match from Med, Kyrgios will be tough for him no doubt but I think he can pull through
lmao some hippie in the cheap seats almost killing himself to get the tennis ball hit from Meddy
I really thought he was about to fall lol
King Meddy giving Ajla a shout out too. The crowds may not love you Daniil but I do!
Finished before 1, mission accomplished Daniil
Medvedev knew his h2h against Kyrgios on top of his head during the interview…my boy has been doing some homework I bet
He can count to 4?
Meddy also congratulating ajla 🥺 got to love him
Hope Meddy stands closer to the baseline against Nick
Pretty sure that’s why he was practicing doing so against Wu. I was surprised when he started doing so on second serves, but on Wu’s last game he was doing so on first serves. It was incredibly amusing to see him using a grand slam match to practice specific things for his next match.
I've seen him try to return a little closer in his last two matches. Obviously, Wu and Rinderknech's second serves don't compare to Kyrgios's.
We can hope
I doubt he's going to bring it out at a slam before trying it consistently at smaller tournaments. He doesn't seem to be practicing it all that hard at the moment either, so it just seems unlikely. He might try it for a game or two, and then go back the moment it doesn't work.
Medvedev seems a little nervous about that Kyrgios match.
As he should be
Poor guy in the white shirt almost caught it :(
It was a break point, not set point. Why is Brad trynna make Medvedev look stupid lol
ahahah meddy and mcE debating how the set ended
At almost 1AM. I think he's in a good mood this tournament
Will Medvedev lose in the 4th round? He played in the us Open 5 times and made 1 semis, 1 final and 1 win
Shapo and Coric GOATs, only people to beat Med pre-QF
I’m glad Med played a snooze fest match. I need him to play 4 more and win, no stress or drama, just win the title
His first week has been very reminiscent of last year! No sets dropped, zero drama, boring matches, but nothing too tiring.
I have to admit I am quickly becoming a fan of Medvedev.
It was break point
Wu doing autographs. Fans seem to like him
Probably not feeling too bad when your ranking was 1800+ in March lol
Wu throwing his 10 empty bottles away himself… what a gent
Dang thats true and kind of sad to think about at the same time
I like guys who don’t make the ball kids their personal servants
James Blake used to say thank you everytime they gave him a ball
As if I needed more reasons to like James Blake… haha
Medvedev lying through his teeth
a really tough match ?
Out of all the matches in this US open that was certainly one of them
Love Meddy but that match was a snooze fest
Ok Mr. Pretzel, finish this now, I wanna sleep pls
from what I've seen I don't see Wu having much of a career without some significant changes in his coaching box
Wu yibing is a great player in his own right
Med adjusted the service position. That’s big
Even taking away the context of this match being held after Serena's farewell, this play from Medvedev is just so uneventful.
He lethargically outclasses his opponent so much 😂
I remember watching Cinci on TV last year and he was playing PCBusta in the semi finals and it was like 60 60,, I was stunned
IDK on eurosport rn, there's no RUS, only CHN? Not sure how it looks on espn
I think it's just the 🇷🇺 they can't do
I really don't understand what kind of player Wu is. What is he doing out there? He certainly doesn't seem too bothered either way.
Yeah he didn't seem to fight that hard and against Medvedev you have to really play chess to beat him like Nadal did at the Aus Open where it was hugely tactical by finding Medvedevs weakness at moving forward
He’s a qualifier that made it to the third round, I think he’s fine bowing out to the world #1. And it’s so late lol I’d be content losing soon and taking my $190k
He was ranked outside of the top 1800 in March, he's probably happy about this season for sure
He's a ballbasher lmfao
Keeps getting impatient with Meddy hitting 481941 neutral shots and hits UEs trying to get a winner
Yeah that will win you junior grand slams but no way that's going to work against these top guys, when the harder you hit, the less time you have on your end as well. Unless you are absolutely in the zone like a Fernando Gonzalez but it was some meat head nonsense. On the run hitting as hard as an offensive shot, then having no time to get to the next ball, like duh.
Think Meddy will still win but Kyrgios is going to be much much tougher than his previous opponents. Could see him dropping the opening set.
I’m a Djokovic fan I’m always overconfident when it comes to players I like lol
Something that's been pretty good today has been the serve. He's gonna need that and more.
Yeah you definitely can't be getting broken against Nick given how he can just go full servebot mode at times
guarantee the nyc bro contingent will be pro-kygrios
No crowd likes Medvedev for whatever reason
Don't you know that Grand Slam Audiences are known for their good tastes?
whoever coached berrentini on how to win with zero backhand, please work with wu
it helps that he's 6'5"
write that down patrick!
Tomorrow's Muguruza vs Kvitova match will be a shit show or an absolute banger. Nothing in between.
I'm betting on banger for Kvitova and shit show from Mugu's side.
One can never be sure though. If I were Kvitova I'd just try to lob over Muguruza as often as possible and hope for attempts at smashes.
The changeover music is fire in the Meddy match
Daniil can clown and and purposefully not play his best and still beat nearly anyone at USO
That is definitely not true.
Medvedev’s fan here, yeah that statement is bulls.
Wu has horrible defense on his backhand. He hits the ball super clean on offense but unless you can play like berrentini it's going to be hard to sustain a top level career.
I don't understand his tactics either, he seems to approach the net randomly and looks like he's just practicing out there
Daniil will not sleep before 4am (press conference, dinner, ice bath and many more thighs to do)
Thighs lol bringing back those rumors from two years ago 👀
“Many more thighs to do”
don't kink shame
Watching Medvedev play gives my ACL anxiety
people who call meddy boring don't understand he can play lights out to go 40-0, then throw in 3 diabolical dfs in about 10 seconds, play a weird deuce game, and then still come out on top
\#thats #peak #tennis
Come on Wu, fight ! Great forehand winner by him
Med with the big fist pump !!!! Goes up 3-1 in the 3rd set
who's the up and coming canadian player Robbie is on about on Prime video?
No idea. I zoned out whilst he was waffling.
It’s past midnight, idk why Daniil is trying to blow 40-15 leads to play deuce unnecessarily. No need to give the crowd a show, they wanna go home too
Daniil is acting so funny in this match 🤣
Daniil stop clowning, finish the match and go to bed
Ok you can play badly but not that badly
You can spot the exact moment in that point where he decided to care
Highlight of the match 😆
Wu said I can have fun too
This is like the top-level version of a pusher vs. ballbasher club match lol
Hilarious to see Daniil just practicing tweeners in the middle of the match.
Tweener into a kick into a catch! Hilarious!
Daniil and I both half asleep during this match
Daniil in his Oracene era
Wu hits the ball so well but he makes such bad decisions
Must be crazy as a player to potentially have a 1:00PM match one day and a 1:00AM match the next
Is it just me or have the McEnroes and Gilbert kind of been assholes to Wu, especially Johnny Mac?
Yeah they're proper twats right now calling him "who"
The guy still made the third round and took the first set to 64. It's not looking good obviously but damn
McEnroe an asshole? I’m skeptical.
A little extra tonight though
If Medvedev loses his number 1 ranking at the US Open, for how many weeks do you guys think he can have the number one ranking over the course of his career?
I think he'll get a fair bit more after the Big 3(well 2 at this point) retire
Don't see who's stopping him at AO or USO other than one of them
Alcaraz would destroy Medvedev on clay already but I think he's still a few years away from being up there on hardcourt
Someone likely will. It's not like he's going to win every hard court slam.
Nice of these 2 to let their practice session be televised
Attack him at the net Wu !!! Crowd likes as he holds
Not counting Medvedev’s match:
Match of the day: Serena for the nostalgia and the occasion (first four sets of Ruud-Paul as well)
Choke of the day: Tommy Paul serving 6-5 40-0 in the third
Beatdown of the day: Kudermetova d. Galfi 6-2 6-0 in 48 minutes
Comeback of the day: Jabeur d. Rogers
Racket smash of the day: ADM
Comment of the day: https://www.reddit.com/r/tennis/comments/x3vouz/comment/imuxeqd/
Match Point of the day: PCB-ADM (which included said racquet smash)
My favorite set so far of the tournament was the third in Murray Berrettini today
Finally hearing some Ric Flair esq woooooooooos. I feel like the crowd is really missing a great opportunity.
God I wish that were me.
Wooing or stylin and profilin?
Definitely wish I was a limousine riding son of a gun.
Gosh Daniil looks so hot with that kit. Like hottest man ever 🥵🥵🥵
I mean I’d be fine if he were to play shirtless. I’m just saying.
Poor Wu lol. Everyone is just vibing, like the commentators are having casual conversations and Medvedev is half asleep, meanwhile Wu is trying his hardest and still getting destroyed
How’s the crowd for our Danya?
I wish it was better :( I was calling out his name and cheering for him but he seemed kind of annoyed that wu was getting way more support
Medvedev going serve bot mode
Medvedev’s serve is just unreal
why so empty?
Lots of casuals went only to see Serena
ticket prices were through the roof to see Serena. So a huge chunk of people came just for that and a lot of people probably sold off for that reason cause it was too sweet of a dwal. They're Serena fans more than they are tennis fans for better or for worse.
Then the match went three hours and so it's late.
But yeah it's the number one player in the damn world
It's half-past midnight and people tired themselves out screaming for Serena. Unfortunate but probably to be expected
This has got to be one of the weirdest matches I've seen
Meddy going to win easily in straight sets while it feels like he hasn't hit more than 5 winners the whole match
When your opponent plays this tactically dumb you don't have to hit winners
The score definitely doesn't show how the game is actually like
Seeing lots of people talking about lack of Chinese male players in tennis, so I checked how Chinese men are doing in other sports.
I was surprised to see most of their gold medals and other medals are won by women than men from China.
Also most of their medals in Olympics come from sports like diving, shooting and weight lifting
Their weightlifting program is insane. They start learning the techniques super young. Them and the Bulgarians I feel will be competing for the leading methodologies
China invests a ton of $$$ into women’s sports. I mean, look at Eileen Gu and why she chose to represent China - that was the hottest topic of this year’s Winter Olympics
Honestly Chinese women are so talented!! China is one of the few countries whose women win more than their man in both summer and winter Olympics!!
Every “rich” country is like this because the top male athletes can play soccer or even basketball, baseball, football (USA), which only offer one Olympic medal per sport. Since most female athletes don’t have this option (apart from soccer), they go into other sports and outperform their male counterparts. American women have been doing this for many Olympics now. For example, men who can run fast and jump will go into basketball or American football while the women who can run fast and jump will go into track and field, which has a lot of events and can win a lot of medals. Lol this explanation was probably not what you asked for 😆
for similar reasons, a lot of countries will have much stronger tennis for women than men because it's one of the few sports where women can make a lot of money whereas the men have more options for sports to choose from from an opportunity standpoint
Which is why American mens tennis will be shit for a long time while we’ve had Serena/Venus for the last two decades and now have Coco/Pegula/etc.
