Wow.....what a spectacular game....an epic one....SHAPO lost in 3 sets--2h40--....tiebraker.....kudos to SHAPO for a terrific tournament and his new coach YOUHNY who is doing a heck of a job.....seems to b the perfect match...2020 should b interesting for those two.

Malheureusement can't say the same for FELIX....struggling a lot.....not a good start.....à suivre.

AO.....ouchhh......exit pour nos Canadiens......SHAPO---FELIX--POSPISIL--FERNANDEZ all fired.....not a good start....only survival is MILOS who won vs a lucky loser,,,he is on today.

Will look closely to NADAL and Medvedev......SERENA and COCO.......enjoy.

Oh yes,,,,,that's why i love that game---i watched COCO GAUFF playing....she was losing 3-0 in the third set and great comeback to win 7-5..wow....and remember she is 15......she will play OSAKA in the third round....OSAKA should go through.....They played at the US OPEN and- after her win -OSAKA was very generous and graceful to COCO....great moment of tennis. OSAKA on her way will play SERENA and # 1 BARTY--the favourite at home--BUT i will cheer for her......she is now more relax on the court and all smiling.....fun to watch.

Oh and ..easy win for MILOS....same for ROGER and DJOKO....all moving to third round.

MUGU moves to third round...finally i hope she is back....not easy for her in the last two years....BUT at the end of the day it could be BARTY playing PLISKOVA,,,,,and MEDVEDEV--DJOKO....

MILOS vs TSITSIPAS at 3 in the morning....and too bad OSAKA--GAUFF at 3 also,,,,pas facile de suivre ce tournoi...

Pas facile du tout... But you can still catch a little of the action in the evening and in the morning too.

Serena is gone. It looks less and less likely that she will win another major. Although stranger things have certainly happened, so who knows.

Oh boy what a night....yep i watched SERENA losing in 3 sets....WANG played the game of her life....AND what about OSAKA losing 6-3, 6-4 to COCO...wow....NAOMI in her press conference seemed très frustrée et décue d'avoir perdu aux mains d'une gamine de 15 ans....beaucoup de mal à accepter cette défaite.

So the door is wide open for BARTY......and goodbye to WOZNIACKI who after losing is retiring......was not a fan of her ,,and her dad...BUT she had une belle carrière et elle était appréciée sur le circuit.

Another big surprise....MILOS 7-5, 6-4, 7-6 vs TSITSIPAS.....that's a big win :yo:......and ROGER did it in extremis......yes...what a night it was....:fat:

Federer played badly (for the most part) and should have lost in all fairness. He got lucky at the very end. And also history worked in his favor as he and Serena never lost on the same day.

I watched GIORGI -KERBER for the game but honestly to look at this gorgeous ITALIAN....she is wow.....BUT was nice to see KERBER back in the game.......another surprise #2 PLISKOVA is out...i watched the second set and her opponent was very solid and dominant...so this field is all open...BUT as mentionned BARTY should do it all the way. COCO is on tonight,...and MUGU still alive :fat:.

MEDVEDEV and NADAL move on.....MILOS is playing at 9 tonight vs CILIC...will not b easy but fun to watch.

I am watching Kyrgios vs. Khachanov, the Battle of the Ks match. Kyrgios behaving himself- so far. He looks like he has filled out a bit to me.

Gaby Kyrgios is a bit talented to be a 23 seed don’t you think? This match is in a 5th set, Kyrgios hitting some really effortless looking forehands.
