Isner ruined his recent run on trying to return to form.  ..-) Ugh, so hard to be an Isner fan since his knee injury. Tipsy out early. How is he still in the top 20?

Excited to see Rafa tomorrow. I'm betting he'll be really hungry after that Wimbledon.
I don't think Rafa will have any problems.  :)

TORONTO : Maria Kirilenko along with Ana Ivanovic earned in direct sets in the Rogers Glass about Mondy.

Looking forward to Gasquet vs. Djokovic and Murray vs. DelPotro in this tournament.

Murray has to get past Granollers who's won his first ATP World Tour title since 2011,he must be playing good atm.Potty could play Raonic,bombs will fly in that match up if it happens.I've a feeling Nadal & Nole will meet here,that should be fun.

Guys! Yesterday was amazing! 4 full matches and 1.5 sets bonus. Almost 9 hours baking ib the sun. I was so tired I left after Haas. Didn't stick around for Gasquet lol  Naturally,  the best matches were not on Center Court. Day 2 much better--lesson learned. Saw...
Almagro hit 22 FH in the net
Fognini in a bizzaro match--3 breadsticks
Dolgopolov stand inside the baseline to return Anderson's serve. The dude is amazing.
All that on court 9
Then went BN Stadium
Caught the last 1+ set of Nishikori
And finally Haas!
All the matches finished in about 1h 45' regardless one 2 or 3 sets.

Nice to hear from you from there, Babblelot.  It sounds like you're enjoying the tennis.

I've managed to find some time & am watching Berdych / Dolgopolov. TB up a set 63, and 54 & about to serve for the match. I'd like AD to beak him now!   :)

Nadal is playing Levine on CC, but I'm not interested in it.

No info yet.

That could explain why he was nonchalant yesterday.

Hopefully its just tiredness due to tight scheduling.

Three double faults in one game, now 5-5. Jerzy is not a good server. He needs kick serve.

Now instead serving flat serve for 2nd serve, Jerzy is serving kick serves now.

Well, his flat serve is not working for purpose of 2nd serve. It hurts Jerzy badly in every crucial situation. .

Haas has retired after 5-0  ::))11

I just caught up with the results - sorry to see such a great competitor having to retire, and I hope he'll rest well & return feeling fit.

I note that Paire beat Wawrinka in straights.

No surprises to see Murray & Nadal through in straight sets.

I'm watching Janowicz / Dancevic, and note that JJ won the first set via a tb.  I know little about FD, and am impressed that he's giving JJ a good match.     

Edit :  And FD breaks JJ.  Is this the end of the universe as we know it????  Williamchung - what is your take on this?

And some excellent serves help JJ to hold serve. 

Good solid play / serving from FD. And he beaks again to take the second set 63.  Hopefully, it will be a good 3rd set.

He threws ball so height, maybe wind affects it. But I am not really sure.
I believe there are issues for his serving.

He didn't look settled out there, Williamchung, and yet he broke FD to go ahead & refused to get broken in that final game.  Good for him, he lives to fight another day. 

It's the fist time I've taken any notice of FD, and he can play well.
