Alright, this is a bit out on a limb, but I think that failure to consolidate after such a battle to get the break back in the last game is going to break Brooksby and the match will be pretty straightforward from here.

Let's see if I'm right. Djokovic's first serve has been terrible, less than 50% in if I had to guess.

This guy has great variety. He's going to run Novak all night.

Another guy yeah but if Brooksby can stay close, he's got the crowd behind him.

How in the world did I leave to go complete my CFL pool update at 3-1, come back 20 min later, and the score was still 3-2?

And yet in spite of this, you still missed a whole hell of a lot...

Brooksby is going to have to develop his first serve to be more of a weapon though in order to get some free points, it's just going to be too taxing for him especially in best 3-of-5 going forward.

It's interesting because until the second half of that set he basically hadn't missed a first serve. It was looking like a science experiment about having a first serve that doesn't get you free points very often but also never misses.

But then he started missing them so that's out the window.

Yeeeeeah... the second I heard Andreescu won the toss and elected to serve, I knew that was a mistake.

EDIT: Found her serve towards the end of the game and benefited from a terrible error from Sakkari but that was sketchy for a bit.

Can someone explain to me why her 2019 US Open points didn't drop off last year? Why does she still have them 2 years later?

The tours made that decision due to COVID that players would retain the points they earned in 2019 and that they would start to have to defend them in the summer of 2021.

Maria Sakkari is serving harder than Jenson Brooksby lol

Edit: More double-faults though

Yeah but she can't hit the broad side of a barn. Hope to God she doesn't figure it out or this is going to be rough... hell of a return there for Bianca.

US Open feed (Tennis TV maybe?) and ESPN Feed.

You do not want the ESPN feed. Ever.

Also, great hold from Bianca from 0-30 to not even have to get to deuce.
