I did go out to the Dogopolov-Harrison match which Harrison won 7-6,6-4. It was a short big servers match with only one break but Harrison had the upper hand in the ground play all the time. I have never seen him play so well with shot after shot painting the line. Dolgo could never get his game going and there was none of the exuberance that I saw in his match against Devarrman in Washington.

Maybe there is a future for American tennis.  :)

Tomorrow looks fairly dull and I'll probably not go out until the afternoon to see Almagro vs Dimitrov on the Stadium court.

Arrived safely here at Cincy  :)) . 8 hours 15 minutes, the extra 15 minutes being due to roadwork ouside Columbus :mad1: . This trip is becoming almost routine.

I'll probably get out to the tennis later today.
hey, make sure you post lot's of pics and tell us everything ... we need detailed posts  :))

Hi Alex,

I don't take photos but I'll let people know what I see.

I did not get out to the courts soon enough to save Bernard Tomic.  :scared:

---------------------------------
Men's Qualifying Singles - 1st Round
 
(WC) Robby Ginepri d (Alt)Bernard Tomic  64 62

---------------------------------
I can't believe that Ginepri def. that silly kid Tomic. I thought Ginepri was retired. I'm still puzzled why Tomic went to Cinci, got a WC and wasted it.

Lol! Well done Robby!

I wanted to see that one too.
But I go to bed soon after so won't see it all.
 
Blake plays well once in awhile.

I still don't see what the big deal is concerning Tomic. :\

On the Blake match...I hope Blake doesn't get killed too much.  Go Blake!!!! Show us one last stand!!!!! :))

Great to hear Harrison played so well! I've always liked him. Also, great to see Baker back representing Tennessee (w00t!  :)) ) and winning against a pretty solid opponent in Istomin. Also, good win for Dimitrov over Almagro. And great to see Lauren Davis pull the upset over a much higher ranked opponent. Fish and Querrey really let the Americans down, but oh well. It's not like American tennis is going anywhere for a while anyway. Kiri had a ton of trouble, but managed to pull it out. And it looks like Kerber's about to wrap it up as well.

Rafa is the FIRST to qualify for WTF this year! :D

My first match of the day. Can't wait, should be a great one if Blake is on.
Damn I missed some really nice match-ups. Good to see Kohli and Dimitrov won their matches  ;-()

Blakes takes the 1st set 6-1  :lmao:

Terrible  play by JJ but Blake is very good as well. Gotta miss this Blake. Probably the most affected guy on tour by surface homogenization.

Don't wanna jinx him but the way he's playing so far this is more than doable, and the draw is looking nice also.

beautiful tennis by Blake  :lmao:

Another few bp's wasted  :Confused:

This really resembles good old Blake, not 2006 Blake but certainly it's not THAT far behind.

Awesome offensive and flat shots. Gotta miss this. He's always the one to watch when he's on, especially on fast courts such as Cincy.

That is match he needs to overcome consistently. Black is playing well, that is good for Blake and Jerzy.
Jerzy will learn how do play more consistenly and understand more about game and shot selection.

JJ holds and it was pretty tight 4-3*

Blake's ROS and net awareness is simply a joy to watch today.
