Well, all 4 of them won, should have gone acca crazy.  Think Norrie bossed that a bit despite only winning 7-6, 7-6.   He didn't give up a single break point.  Seems to have got over his hiccup in form

Must massively screw up the late arrivers from Europe; I never get used to the late finishes when arriving in Vegas for a week at the WSOP and I am not having to run round a tennis court.

It seems a bit of a stretch to early on a Tuesday morning is European prime time.  Most of the matches are in the middle of the night, so the start times can't be aimed at us.

Start times are purely aimed at local weather conditions.  No games start before 6pm local time as i imagine no one would buy tickets to watch at 2pm given the heat.   This was a freaky night all three matches went 3 hours + which is insane

Looks like the jet lag and long match got to Alexander in the end.
I’m not looking forward to the Zverev/Medvedev era

I did think that can't have helped, but there is no excuse.

In the minute before before that he was disputing the line call that looked like it clipped the line.  He was abusing the umpire and calling him a f'in idiot.  Taking into account the alleged previous with his girlfriend that they haven't got round to banning him for yet, then he is looking at a reslly long ban.  He was literally aiming at the umpire's feet with one of those shots and people have been thrown out for accidentally hitting umpires/lie judges.

Good news for Norrie, he is effectively up a place!

Norrie won really well again last night in Mexico, so is in the semi of an ATP500.  Tsitsipas is a better draw than Nadal, but tough from here, so likely remains at 12.  Definitely getting his form back and all these points are going to give him a good chance of top 10 later in the year.

Norrie in the final of the 250 in San Diego tonight, a win will get him on the verge of top 20. Is he good enough to break into top 10 next year?

A win tomorrow and he scrapes into 10th spot

Jack Draper won again yesterday for his third ATP challenger title of the year.  Youngest ever Brit to win 3 (FWIW Murray could have done it younger but move up after 2 wins).  Now in the top 10 under 21s in the World. 

Will be interesting to see what levels Raducanu and him are playing at by the year end.

Ridiculous lenient punishment for Zverev.  Probation for 12 months with a possible 8 week ban of he is naughty again.

Assume it was probably just timing, or a slow update, but it is here.

Did you find a stream for the qualifying?  Boulter, Dart and Watson all made it through the first round, so wouldn't mind watching some tonight if I get time.  There are only two qualifying rounds, so win tonight and they are in the main draw.

You can see the main matches on Amazon Prime from tomorrow which is good for me.
