Tennis 2024
« Topic Start: January 18, 2024, 09:44:16 AM »
First major of the year down under. I have ESPN+ and they basically show all the matches.  Was watching two of the high men’s seeds last night.  Ruud and Zverev both taken to fifth set tiebreakers but survived.  Matches started at different times but somehow ended both at about the same time which made it difficult to watch.  Medvedev looks like he will lose down two sets to zero now.

Only American male left is Taylor Fritz who has made it to the quarterfinals.  Unfortunately he faces Djokovic there.  So that will end.  Coco is the only woman left and appears to be cruising to another championship.

Escaped that one in five sets and now another five set win for the semis.  Alcaraz and Zverev going at it now.

Ja.

The quarterfinals in ten women’s side almost ended up being a UVA affair. Emma Navarro who won a NCAA championship while at Virginia beat Coco Gauff and is actually a favorite tomorrow. Unfortunately fellow UVA player Danielle Collins lost today. Navarro is the only American left. Can’t remember last time USA had more men in a major QF than women.

Alcaraz dominating early, won the first set 6-2 and leads the second 2-0.

Could be witnessing the end of an era. Djokovic down 2-0 in sets.

Alcaraz up 40-0 and 5-4 in the 3rd set and is falling apart. 3rd set is now 6-5 Djokovic.

Alcaraz closes him out in the tiebreaker.

I wouldn’t count Djokovic out yet from winning another major. He’s basically playing a month after knee surgery. But it will b e tougher. Alcaraz and Sinner are top notch. And still young.
