Wow. Ha ha ha ha (I am not laughing at the ATP.  I’m catching a break from work,  watching a lot of tennis and enjoying my good American beer — if any of you ever venture into this neck-of-the-woods, drop me a line.)

Okay, let’s cut to the shit.


We warned you.

We’ve been talking about this for awhile.

This was tough to watch. There were signs of a Djoker return, of one of the true greats finding his feet and his racket. But he’s a mess. I am not kidding when I say I wish I was in charge of that elite’s camp. No way he plays IW. I tell Andre what to do.

They don’t know what the fuck they’re doing.

Djokovic deserves so much more than this.

Now, if he’s literally this bad with the utmost care and concern, then hand me another beer.

I saw a Bodo tweet that went something to the extent that Djokovic has lost his soul.

This is heavy. Nobody wants this. I feel bad for Djokovic.

Dimitrov: my hypothesis looks better and better by the day. This guy is this weekend’s laundry.

Thiem is out on injury v Cuevas but he still looks lost on the hard courts.

Federer looked really lost v his first round Argentine but much better against the younger Serb.

I like Del Potro a lot in this tournament. I guess court comfort is a thing and DelPo has played well here in IW. He crushed the mini-Hewitt who’s actually a decent player. Juan looks very healthy and dangerous.

Bye bye, Sascha.

How about my boy, Fritz! He has a chance to get into the QF. A lot of interesting tennis.

This is what a changing of the guard looks like, folks.

Take a good look.
