Aussie Open Update:

  • Kerber controls Kristyna from start to finish.
  • Vandeweghe comes down hard on Bouchard, and looks here to stay.
  • Pavly pounds out a hard earned 3-setter over Svitolina, and now faces Kuzny in what promises to be a battle of real heavyweights in the 4th round.
  • Murray wears down the gangly, cat in the hat Sam Querrey, to the delight of Mother Judy
  • Wawra doesn’t get distracted by the beautiful Ms. Troicki and holds off the Aaron Paul lookalike
  • Jo Willy prevails in 4 when Jack Sock gets blinded by his own, glow in the dark, orange socks.
  • Seppi separates himself from Steve Darcis.

Aussie Open Update — 1-18

Aussie Open Update:

  • Bad ankle doesn’t rankle Murray, who methodically reduces Rublev to rubble on the way to the third round.
  • Despite some other disappointments, Australia still tastes the winning Tomic.
  • Whatever makes Nick tick, some day the clock will run out on his youth and all he’ll have left is memories of crankiness, tanks, shanks, and being a first class wanker on the court. Kudos to McEnroe for calling it the way he sees it.
  • Fed sputters a bit but knows how to get it done against Noah.

Aussie Open Update — 1-17

  • Nice guy with the big serve swerves and crashes headlong into a serve and volley machine at the Aussie Open named Mr. Mischa. Zverev didn’t miss too many punch outs at the net against the disappointed American. John Isner needs to work on his conditioning and figure out how to keep his momentum going in these best of out five setters. His ground strokes remain unreliable, and his movement around the court remains a continuing liability.
  • There’s still a flicker of hope for Venus in singles, but doubles is another matter.
  • With lots of black just below the biceps, Serena brutally bludgeons Belinda Bencic.
  • Ivo eviscerates Horacio with a mind numbing 75 aces. I wish I was 6 ft 11….
  • Sebby has more than a small backhanded compliment for Stevie Johnson.

US Open Update: Day 14 (Men’s Finals)

US Open Update: Day 14 (Men’s Finals)

  • Djokovic blinks and sinks under the weight of Wawrinka’s heavy barrage, including more than a handful of Stan-sized, one-handed backhands down the line. Perhaps the new nickname for the Swiss who doesn’t miss in the clutch should be Captain Courageous. As ChabDognosticated on last week’s ChabDog Sports Talk, Stan’s win, along with the title for Germany’s Kerber for the women, means a total cleanup at the Open for Central Europe.

US Open Update: Day 12 (Men’s Semis)

US Open Update: Day 12 (Men’s Semis)

  • What else is a Guy supposed to … conventionality meant a certain death…Monfils gets a ticket from the thought police.
  • The clown prince of tennis was in rare for today, hitting every shot you can imagine, and engaging, his opponent, as well as the group, in unusual psychological games. Ultimately, if you paid top dollar for the match, you received your money’s worth, even with the thought policy giving Monfils a steep ticket for dreaming up a strategy involving unabashed (and unexplainible) tanking.
  • Beating Sebby was a little too much heavy lifting for the more fragile Kei Nishikori, whose ultimate undoing was the lack of an effective serve (and no obvious way to get easy points);
    Kei simply broke down under the weight of Wawra’s sharp and continuous body blows.

US Open Update: Day 11 (Women’s Semis)

  • Karolina completes the Pliskrieg destruction of the Williams dynasty at Flushing with a no-nonsense, straight set victory. Yes, Serena didn’t move like Serena, but that’s the price you pay for age, and, perhaps, for asking to start your tournament on Tuesday, not Monday.
  • Despite the win, Pliskova will still be the underdog in the Women’s final against new No. 1 Kerber, who took it upon herself to whack Wozniacki 4 and 3.

9-7-16 murray 9-7-16 serena 9-7-16 wawra

US Open Update: Day 10 (Quarters)

  • The later it got tonight in Flushing, the stronger Stan’s backhand became, culminating in a few of the most powerful and intimidating one-hander passes you will ever see. Wawrinka looked sharp and strong enough to beat anyone tonight, and you can bet Novak and Nishikori are aware of this.
  • After Andy starts whining early in the fourth set, Nishikori turns decidedly predatory and hunts down his prey 7-5 in the fifth.
  • Fist pumping Pliskova kills off Konjuh and moves on to face Williams sister No. 2.
  • It took longer than expected, but the Compton Commandant found a way to cope with the challenge from stubborn Simona.

9-6-16 monfils

US Open Update: Day 9 (Quarters)

  • The early retirement party for Novak continues with today’s pre-mature evacuation of the court by Tsonga.
    However, it seems the party will be over in the next round, when he meets the mercurial, master of mischief, Monfils. This should be a better test, in advance of the ultimate
    showdown with Murray.
  • Gael winds up and unleashes some gale force strokes that drained the remaining life out of a low energy Pouille. Now it’s off to the semis for Monfils.
  • Wozniacki cruises, getting a virtual walkover against Sevastova when the Latvian’s ankle turned over the wrong way. This sets up an all-blonde semifinal with Angelique “the physique” Kerber, who blew through last year’s Serena slayer, Roberta Vinci. after a tight first set. Look for some great rallies between the Dane and the German in their semifinal.
