Tipsy is on a downhill spiral. I never even know how he made it into the Top 10. He'll go out early for sure. And Ferrer stil might not manage to capitalize on the easy draw  :)~

I liked watching Klahn yesterday. He had a very fun game to watch. Hope he does well against Lopez!

Both Serbians, Tipsarevic and Djokovic are moving in the same career path. Maybe they both used the egg (or some other enhancer) for a a period of time and both left the egg behind and are reverting back to their former selves.
“It is not too far way,” Toni Nadal told The Australian after Nadal collected the 13th major of his career by mowing down Novak Djokovic in an electrifying final of the US Open. “It is getting very, very close for Rafa to be level with Roger or more.”

Almagro is out too. Sorry Babbs. This is crazy.

btw, Ferrer's draw is getting absolutely ridiculous. The only guy who could upset him is Tipsy, but Tipsy being Tipsy ... I wouldn't be surprised if Tipsarevic loses early.

I'm telling you, Almagro's demise began at 2012 Madrid with his loss to Ferrer when the match was on his racquet a couple of times. Carried over to his QF loss to Ferrer at 2013 AO. 3 paper bag worthy implosion :paper bag: :paper bag: :paper bag:

Not the same guy since.

Funny, I've just read that they are predicting storm/rain tomorrow night in New York. Murray is scheduled to play a night match. I'm kinda scratching my head right now. Chances are that Murray might play his R1 match on Thursday  :shut-up:.

Hi Swish,yup thay said on tv here he'd got back problems.Djokovic looking good & won.USO could not organize a piss up in a brewery,I'm sure thay are trying to knacker up the defending champion chances.Predicting storms tomorrow night in New York,how the hell thay do thay have Murray on the night match it's so dumb.Being defending champion he should have had the chance to play before Djokovic.Also most folks here will be asleep,as it's going to be the middle of the night.But if Potty played the night match the time difference is not much difference.That's why i said the USO could not organize a piss up in a brewery.
Thay suck.

Murray should be OK. He doesn't have anyone tough to play for a few rounds.
 
But still, they should use their heads once in awhile.

That was a training session for Djokovic. Snooze-fest. Berankis was pretty clueless, didn't know what hit him.

I still think that either the defending champion (Murray) or current #1 (Djokovic) should've opened the tournament. Some guys believe that this schedule is being made this way in anticipation of the Fed/Rafa QF match on next Wednesday. I can't remember what's so significant about that Wednesday. Fellow Americans probably know what it is.

All I know is that Wednesday is hump day, and it's every working week all year.  :dunno:

I tried watching the Azarenka match. My balcony door was wide open as it's pretty hot in Calgary right now. My first neighbor was outside doing some BBQ. So, she asked me 'Alex, Alex is everything OK there?', I was like 'yeah Sue, why are you asking?' ...

She goes 'I hear some noise like screaming coming from your place, it's really strange'  :rofl_2: :rofl_2: :rofl_2:. I still can't stop laughing. I was like 'Sue, I'm just watching tennis', she goes 'I didn't know tennis players scream when they play tennis'  :hysterical:

oh boy ...

Jerzy looks like a charlatan to me. The second coming of Goran.

He loves his new found celebrity more than winning tennis.

Bill, no matter how much you write about Jerzy's game, you're going to miss the boat with this kid if you leave out his brain.

When he was down 2 breaks at 1-4 in the 2nd set, he played lights out tennis for 3 games to get back to (serving) at 4-4. Maximo was overwhelmed. At worst, all he had to do was hold 2 more times, get to a TB, then steamroll over Maximo to get to 1-1 sets.

What does he do instead? Plays like a mental patient and gets broken.

NEW YORK — Wimbledon semifinalist Jerzy Janowicz, hampered by a back injury, lost to No. 247 Maximo Gonzalez 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 in the first round of the U.S. Open on Tuesday.

Janowicz, the 14th seed, injured his back on Saturday while working out at the gym with his trainer. He said he doesn’t know the severity of the injury.

“I could barely walk, I couldn’t practice,” Janowicz said. “I couldn’t find a normal position to sleep.”

Janowicz, who was drawn into the weakest quarter of the draw that’s led by No. 4 David Ferrer, rued his bad luck and missed opportunity.

“I was in really good shape,” he said. “That’s why I’m frickin’ disappointed.”

The 22-year-old Janowicz struggled to unleash his booming serve after taking pain-killing injections in the right side of his lower back before the match. The Polish No. 1 said it felt like a knife going into his lower back whenever he tried to serve. He finished with only three aces. At one point, he even tried to catch Gonzalez off guard with an underhand serve.



Gonzalez, 30, an Argentine qualifier, entered the match with a 2-9 career record on hard courts and 4-10 mark at Grand Slam tournaments. Asked if Gonzalez surprised him, Janowicz responded: “How can he surprise me when I couldn’t serve? That’s a stupid question. Maybe I surprised him.”

Last year, Janowicz strained a leg muscle four days before the U.S. Open. He went on to lose to No. 1,098 Dennis Novikov, then a UCLA sophomore, in the first round.

“I’m so unlucky every time in New York,” Janowicz said. He joked, “Maybe I’m practicing too hard for New York.”

Without knowing the extent of his injury, Janowicz said he wasn’t sure of his plans for the fall, which includes an important World Group Davis Cup playoff tie against Australia in Poland next month.

“I was planning after the match [to get] an MRI or X-ray,” Janowicz said, “but now I don’t care.”

Gonzalez will play Jack Sock in the second round. Sock, a 20-year-old American, led 7-6 (2), 3-6, 5-2 when his first-round opponent, Philipp Petzschner, retired.

For me, he needs mental development program and better decision making.   :mad1:
What the hell, how does he get this injure!?
