When Murray gets punk'd, sid will disappear. sid's a one trick pony.

Hopefully Murray's matches will get rained out day after day.

Babbs, you are so bad. I don't know why but your post brought some hilarious memories of Oscar Hernandez  :rofl_2:. watch this.

What went down between JMDP and GGL? It appeared GGL had some not nice words for DP at the handshake.

Sad that Blake and Baker both lost :( But Ram still keeping the flag flying with yet another big upset! Seeds dropping like flies! None of the top 10 yet, though.

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

Watched that last set with Blake and Karlovic. It's sad to see Blake retire :(

He also got a break back in that fifth set and had to lose it, not cool. Well, all the best to him on an excellent career and hope he sticks around tennis.

Sock winning a tight first set and then disappearing in the second  :confused1: Hopefully he picks up his game for the rest of the match! Gasquet with another solid win.

TV coverage of the US Open has been absolutely bizarre. I've seen this a few times, both ESPN and TC are covering the same match. Right now, they're showing Querrey.

WTF  :Confused:

Evans (ranked #179, won only 3 matches this year) leading Tomic 2:1 ... interesting, another potential 5 set match, unless Evans closes this in 4. Tomic, Tomic  :;:-|

Courier said the conditions are faster to make the points shorter and shorter rallies. Could explain why so many seeds went out in 1R...???

He was saying the conditions are good for a guy like Daniel Evans, who leads Tomic 2-1 sets now.

Qualifier #179 Daniel Evans def. Tomic in 4!!!!

Evans is 23 and only 5'9", but he's very quick and very strong. Comes forward, has great skills at the net. Powerful groundies and a 1HBH.

Querrey is a lost at sea at this stage of hid career.

Down 2-0 sets to Mannaino.

yeah, too bad Sam lost both TBs. I'm just tuning into this match, saw the last TB. Not sure if Sam can turn this around, he needs to be a bit more aggressive.

The Isner/Monfils really should have been scheduled on Ash. This is by far the most interesting match today. Why put Wozniacki  vs. some nobody on Ash. as if anybody cares about that match. and I  don't care that they have to mix up men and women matches.

Pathetic decision making by the organizers   :ranting:.

Sam has never won a match from 2 sets down.

darn, Sam is out too, another seed gone ... just brutal. I didn't expect this as these courts suit Sam's game very well.
