From Fedfan HQ. Ha ha.
No reason to think Anderson won’t take care of Grigor, despite their H2H (6-1, Grigor). I don’t think they’ve played in the past two years, which says so much about these two players. Look what Anderson has done in the past year (two grand slam finals).
With Zverev v Tsitsipas, we’ll just hope for a great match. Zverev beat him in straights in D.C. SF though the second set was pretty competitive and the conditions favored Sascha.
Sascha is rolling, but so is the 19 year-old one-hander. Hope this is epic.
Khachanov has to beat Haase. The big Russian seems to have found some polish on that power tennis he can play. Beating Big John in two TB speaks to some decent composure. We’ll stick with the youth movement here.
Nadal v Cilic goes like this. If Cilic can get his shit together, his first strike tennis can beat the Spaniard. Even Marin’s ROS has become a bit of a weapon. But if he let’s Nadal pull the old banana in the tail pipe, you get the picture.
Nadal is favored for sure, but Marin could have one of those HC matches he has on his racket that he can tell his grand kids about.
