US Open 2017-28th AUG to 10th SEP

Recommended Posts

I will be there during the best time at the open which is the first week when all players are there and more matches are happening.

 

Very disappointing to see Yuki Bhambri bow out in the first round of qualiies. He did not play a single game after his great run at ATP Washington D.C and that cost him. Lack of match practice going into US Open was bad and he was granted a tough first draw game against Go Soeda which he lost in 3rd set. He should have clearly won this game, just lost due to rustiness and lack of match practice. i know he must have sat out because of some injury concern or something, but its just disappointing that he won't be there in the main draw after playing exceptionally well in Washington D.C 

 

Anyways, hoping Ramkumar has a great run. He upset Thiem few weeks ago and then had a good run in Cincinnati last week. He is a guy who is fit and knows how to improve as he is just 22 years old and has played more tennis then any other professional player this year. Yes, he has been constantly touring every week to different destinations, a record, and he is constantly improving his ranking.

 

I am happy for Ramkumar and hoping he will make it to the main draw here at US Open this time around.

 

Regarding the championship, great to see Dimitrov doing well at Cincinnati and winning his first ATP 100. Since he is back in form, I feel Dimitrov, Zverev and Kyrgios have a great chance. Roger will do well, but if he runs into any of these guys, he might have a tough time beating them.

We will see how Fed's back is doing versus tiafoe. From what i've seen of his practice clips from USO buildup, he looks fine. Back injury or not, i wasn't expecting him to play 4 of 5 weeks leading up to USO final anyways. 


Anyhow, has anyone seen an easier draw than the one Cilic/Zverev have ? i never bet on tennis but am real tempted to bet on Zverev reaching the final.

Zverev is a big no no in slams. Unless he starts improving his performances in slams, I will not consider him contender in any of the slams in future.

 

Shapovalov into third round. If he can keep his form, he has a great chance of reaching the finals from his half. Only Cilic seems to be a contender from that half (even he is playing his first tournament since Wimbledon)

Cilic out too.

This is getting weird. Shapovalov is playing well but fatigue will get to him since he is playing from qualifiers.

 

One half of draw is a total mess. Cilic & Zverev missed a glorious chance to go really deep. 

 

The player i feel has a chance either gets injured or gets knocked out :sad: 

So not making any statements :no:

Its becoming more and more likely that the us open for the third time in last 12 years will be the only slam to have winners from outside the big 4. Nadal has become average on hard courts(having not won a title since 2014 on them) and Federer has injury issues and struggle for form.

Love the brutally honest interview of Federer post his loss. 

 

He simply said that its better Delpotro or someone else go to semis since he himself is not playing well enough to beat Nadal or someone else and win the championship. He also said something really important. He said that during this US Open, for the first time he felt that a good player might come eventually to stop his run. That is what Del Portro did. Federer said that he never felt like this during Australian Open or Wimbledon as he was playing really well there. You could see by the time q/f at US Open came, he had already had couple of 5 setters. 

 

I loved that interview of Federer and so honest. Champion and class act even in defeat.

 

Regarding the finals, I think Nadal wil win, but I want Anderson to win. I hope Anderson gets his first slam. He reminds me of CILIC from few seasons ago who served so well and surprised everyone and won the US Open. Anderson has already had about 110 aces already in this tournament and serving well. Hopefully he conquers Nadal.

Sham of an Open. Let's admit it, Nadal vultured his way to the title without facing a top 20 seed(1st time since 2000 W, Sampras). This was playing like clay, how can a HC play this slow and with so much bounce? Fed had this in the bag but got greedy to play in Montreal without sufficient warm up and paid the price. USO is cursed for Federer, 2009 F choke, 2010 SF choke, 2011 SF lucky return by Nole, 2014 against GOATing Cilic, 2015 F mega choke where he had a 4/24 BP conversion........Torture for us Fed fans.

 

Nadal's USO record is the most undeserved stat in open era tennis. Consider this, he has more USO(3) since 2010 than Nole and Fed combined(2), who are both much better on HC than him. I would say only his 2013 USO triumph was deserved because he was on fire that American swing season. Both 2010 and 2017 USO wins by him are purely based on luck and not merit. Hope Nole is back to his best next year( the game needs prime Nole all the more after this disaster of a season) and the young guns like Zverev, Kyrgios, Thiem, Shapovalov step up because the Dimitrov-Nishikori-Monfils generation is done in Slams, period. And eff off Murray, if not for his blatant cheating by pulling out after the draw, things may have panned so differently. Hope that clown never takes off again.

One could last a lifetime with that amount of salt, stay pressed! :giggle:
