Barring a pretty epic collapse, Djoker will need to go the distance to get grand slam #19

Tsitsipas is certainly looking like the fresher player.

Looking like beating Rafa is just a soul sucking experience, heading to 0-3 for the men who beat him.

The hyperbole after that match was insane. It was a very good match but far from the greatest match ever. Rafa is 35 and far from his peak, yet McEnroe said Djokovic played the best clay court tennis that match he's ever seen

I mean Stan has best clay performance ever on permanent lockdown, but Novak was still excellent on Friday. But he just doesn't really look up for it today, Mr. Oikos is really gonna have to fall apart here, but if he does you just know Novak will pounce

What defense from Tsitsipas in this game.

Edit: Djoker does finally break him. Is the comeback on?

This is the best tennis I have ever seen Tsitsipas play. It still might not be enough to beat Djoker.

It's all for ratings. And Dan Hicks has ruined tennis, so clueless.

The best clay court match ever is probably the 2006 Rome Final between Federer and Nadal.



Or even the year before Nadal-Coria

I don't why they keep these old guys around when there are refreshing voices out there like Roddick and Blake.

Appealing to the casual is why McEnroe sticks around. Anyways the Yogurt is curdling, he should probably tank this set to save the energy for the fifth.

The causal is 18-35 who barely saw McEnroe play.

But they've seen the meltdowns and that's all that matters.

Interesting about Coria, he was unbeatable on clay until he lost the 2004 French Open final against Gaston Gaudio (a match that he was up 2 sets to love as well).

A classic Novak backhand down the line seals the 4th set. What kind of odds can I get on Oikos taking the 5th set?

The only thing in Oikos favor right now is serving to start the set, but that assumes he won't get broken to start which is what I expect. Novak probably cruises 6-2 here in the fifth.
