Some of you love the likes of Borna Coric, Pablo Carreno Busta and Alex De Minaur. Start a tennis blog and advocate for that garbage. I’m not sorry.
PCB, gifted his QF appearance by Djokovic’s choke job, is absolutely stinking-up the court. Yet he is going to beat Shapovalov. Why? Because he’s going to bore the Canadian (and any respectable tennis mind) to death. Go watch, or you probably did watch: Denis has the style in spades, even aside from the one-hander. He plays a gutsy, elegant and powerfully attacking style of tennis. The Spaniard is the antithesis of class and grace and attacking tennis (tennis with balls). He’s just a grinding grunt out there, the hard-court Spaniard, the likes of Bautista Agut, whom we like. RBA has class. If you’re having trouble following this . . . never mind.
De Minaur might just beat Thiem tomorrow. Ha. This tournament could become a complete shit show. This is what we’re looking at in the semi-finals:
Carreno Busta vs Zverev (unless Shapovalov can neuter this two-hander tennis pan-handler) in SF #1.
Rublev vs De Minaur SF #2 (this is my nod to 2020. Why wouldn’t this happen? We are doomed).
Okay, we should get Daniil vs Domi in SF #2. This would be the virtual final, of course.
And yes both of these gents have some style. The Russian is an awkward bird out there, but he rises to the challenge and has already certified his game with which he’s gone toe-to-toe with some of the giants of the sport.
Thiem is a beast. His game has lordly, timeless character.
Zverev looked bad today against Coric, who is as likable as a Trump supporter. My god. Zverev resorted to a casual weekend club match effort with his BFF. Zverev has results, a potentially big and dangerous game. But he’s not in historical USO final four form.
Here’s to Denis Shapovalov pulling this QF out of his hat. Hit that giant FH, my friend. Busta rhymes doesn’t even have the sense to target the Canadian’s BH. He’s just tracking everything down like a feral cat.
What the fuck.
The feckless feral cat dumps the 4th 0-6.
Ha ha. GTFOH.
