Why have I not seen anyone else really attempt this shot before as it seems really effective at getting your opponent on the defensive really far back in the court?

Is it just other players aren't consistent enough at getting it to land close to the baseline without going out?
Fairly standard, goes back to Tracy Austin, who did it as well as anybody.

Nick is must-see TV tonight. Unhinged and coked-up.

Got into it with a spectator in the front row, exchanging words with the fan over several points, before the guy was ultimately removed from his seat by security.

lol The crowd, commentators, everybody was lovin' it.

Last 2 games of the 1st set was a pretty hilarious set of events. Lajovic holds at love in 1:01, then Nick uncorks 3 beautiful aces within like ~25s. Breaks out the underhand serve and no look crosscourt pass to hold at love in like 40 seconds for the set!

yea lol

Did you catch that point very early in the match where he hit a shot between his legs? I've seen him do it before, but this time, the ball was coming at him with some serious pace it appeared. He won the point on his next shot iirc

total stylie

Yeh, i like him. I think he's class.

He's defo got the game, if he's more consistent he'll go far. Imagine him on championship point at wimbledon. Underarm ace

S. Hsieh, the gal that beat Osaka, beat Wozniacki today and is into the semis. Considered betting her, but to wuss to pull the trigger. She was +3.5(-125) and +180ish

6-3
6(0)-7(7)
6-2

Re: ATP/WTA 2019: The Year Of Zverev The Younger

Collins-Osuigwe 2nd round was interesting. Osuigwe is the top ranked u17, currently #187. She looks like an olympic track & field athlete who decided to switch to tennis, incredible court coverage, Monfils-esque. USA#1 has some great talent coming up with her and Anisimova.

Osuigwe kinda phoned in the 2nd set after losing the first set TB. The post match interview was classic Collins: "I just LOVE when the crowd is against me it really motivates me!!!" And everyone was like wtf because no one was rooting against her.

I'm revving up the hype machine for Osuigwe tho. She won RG juniors in 2017, supposedly clay is her best surface.

Men will just move forward and crush that ball out of the air, probably for a winner.

Yeah, and he basically punted the first set, finding his groove, getting locked-in etc., did Bautista

BTW, does Nike have different colors of this shirt? Feels like literally every Nike player seems to be wearing this during IW and Miami.
