2016.11.22 00:07 DidYouFindYourIndies Nicolas Mahut appreciation

A bit of love for Nicolas Mahut who finished #1 doubles player, anyone?
On top of that achievement, he played with different partners this season + is ranked #39 in singles (who else among the top players is ranked in the top 50 in singles? Feliciano Lopez only?) + he even won a tournament in singles this year + he's in his mid 30s...
Top guy off court as well apparently.

2016.07.03 05:15 dropshot Week 1 men's play at Wimbledon in review

Normally, middle Sunday is a day off for all players. But due to the rain, and the desire to get all third round matches completed, Wimbledon is playing tennis on middle Sunday. Even so, here's a review of the week so far.
Marcus Willis surprise wins
I think this is still the biggest story of the first week. It's like a real-world version of the movie Wimbledon except the hero isn't an over-the-hill Brit who had chances to play well, but choked, and is now playing his last Wimbledon and planning to coach afterwards.
Instead, it's the story of a player whose rank has never risen about 300, which is far more typical of an ATP tour player. Thinking of moving to the US after his ranking had slipped to around 700, he meets a woman who he falls for and who convinces him that he's still young, and should give tennis another shot.
He does so, gets invited to play a qualifying event as a substitute, wins that which earns him a wildcard into Wimbledon, wins three matches to get to a first round match, and manages to beat Berankis, once a top-rated junior who won the junior US Open.
Willis plays Federer, and yes, he loses to Federer, but for once, this story makes it past tennis circles and is a positive story rather than the usual negative stories (like Maria) that most non-tennis players ever get to hear about tennis.
Willis may never get to recognition by being a moderately good player, but he'll remember this year as the year he came from nowhere to be the feel-good story of the tournament.
Novak Djokovic loses to Sam Querrey
To me, this is still the second story. As Andy Murray pointed out in his interview, Djokovic had to lose at some point (at least, lose early).
Querrey was once a player that seemed destined to be a decent top 20 player. Querrey skipped college and found the success that Donald Young had once envisioned for himself. But that lasted only a few years, and one wondered what happened to Querrey's motivation as his ranking slipped. Querrey has been playing somewhat better tennis lately, but still, no one really expected him to bother Djokovic given that Djokovic has beaten Querrey 8 times to only one loss.
Djokovic seemed out of sorts, while Querrey hoped to hang in the first set, and push it to a tiebreak, which is what happened. When Querrey took the first set, most fans assumed Djokovic would right the ship, and win the next 3 sets. While he won the opening game, he would not win another game in the set, to go down shockingly 6-1 in the second set.
The match was then called due to rain and play began the next day. Again, most fans assumed Djokovic would come out and win handily, having rediscovered his focus.
And for a while, that happened. Djokovic ran to a 4-0 lead, when the rains came again. Although Querrey lost the set, 6-3, he was able to get a break back, and to feel good heading into the fourth set.
Djokovic actually had a break to go up 5-4 in the fourth set, but he was out of challenges. Two close calls put him in a 0-30 hole (had he had challenges remaining, they would have gone in his favor). Querrey would eventually break back on a volley error by Djokovic. Querrey himself avoided additional breaks by hitting big serves when it mattered.
The match would head to another tiebreak, and Djokovic would get to an early lead, but be unable to hold it and eventually a forehand hit wide would lead to Djokovic's earliest loss in some time.
Afterwards, Djokovic admitted he didn't feel 100%, and that it he had his preference, he would have preferred to play in Centre Court rather than Court 1.
Querrey faces Mahut next in a match that has big opportunities for both. Mahut beat his doubles partner, Pierre-Hugues Herbert, and has an opportunity to make the quarterfinal (as does Querrey).
Federer and Murray move on
Federer came into Wimbledon a bit match-shy. He had surgery, and pretty much skipped the entire clay season, including the first Slam since he started playing Slams. Federer also had losses to Thiem and Zverev in grass warmup tournaments, and wondered aloud how well he could play. He seemed happy to just be playing, and didn't have high expectations.
Fortunately, Federer had some relatively manageable opponents. Federer won a close match against Guido Pella, an Argentine who is more comfortable on clay than grass. Even so, Federer ran into a familiar problem that has been plaguing him lately: getting break points, but being unable to convert. Federer had some 9 break points and converted once, right at 4-3 in the third set.
Then, Federer played Miracle Marcus, who didn't have enough tricks to bother Federer. Also, Daniel Evans, who Fed played in the third round, didn't have enough weapons to bother Federer either. As far as the first three rounds go, Fed couldn't have asked for a nicer draw (i.e., it could have been worse).
Fed faces Steve Johnson next who beat the mercurial Grigor Dimitrov. He has to feel great that Djokovic is out, and yet, a bit unlucky that Djokovic faded in the year that Federer doesn't feel 100%. Even so, the draw has been friendly so far. While Johnson is crafty, and figures out ways to win, and potentially could give Federer trouble, his first big challenge is likely to be the winner of Cilic-Nishikori.
Meanwhile, Murray announced a few weeks ago, that he would reunite with Lendl. Lendl left citing a need to spend time on his own, possibly to play more tennis. Many felt that with Murray getting surgery, and his play quality decreasing, Lendl wanted to distanced himself. Now that Murray has come back to reach his first French Open final, Lendl seems happy to rejoin a resurgent Murray.
Whatever the story, Murray seems thrilled to be working with Lendl once again. Murray won Queens for the fifth time, and is undefeated under Lendl, albeit in a relatively short period of time.
Murray was potentially hurt by two lengthy five setters in the opening two rounds of the French Open, which may have left him without enough gas to beat Djokovic. It's possible that even had he dispatched with Stepanek and Bourgue comfortably, he might not have beaten Djokovic, who was a man on a mission.
Even so, a priority for Lendl and Murray was to play early rounds more efficiently.
So far, the draw has also been fairly friendly. Murray opened up with a British wildcard in Liam Broady, then took on Yen-Hsun Lu, who Murray credits with helping increase his focus when he lost to Lu in the opening round of the Olympics singles tennis tournament back in 2008. Lu has had some success winning grass events at the Challenger level, but Murray is at a different level than the players Lu met.
Murray then played John Millman, an Australian that has seen recent success, and who plays a similar style to Murray, but lacking the same versatility, and speed. In other words, Murray does everything a bit better than Millman.
The key to the match was a lengthy 5-all match where it seemed Murray had good chances to break, but Millman kept coming up with good shots to keep the game going on. However, as much as Millman fought, Murray finally engineered a break, and it seemed Millman's will was broken as was his serve twice in the third set.
While Federer has a somewhat friendly fourth round opponent, Murray's opponents likely get tough from here on out. Up next is the winner of Kyrgios-Lopez. Murray has done well against both players, but Kyrgios, in particular, always threatens to play really well. It generally helps Kyrgios's opponents if Kyrgios has a mental meltdown which happens a bit too often. Murray probably wouldn't mind Lopez as he's beaten him many times. Outside of Nadal, Murray generally likes playing lefties and has historically done well.
del Potro returns
del Potro hasn't played in quite a long time in a Slam. He chose to skip the French Open, esp. since he's mostly resorted to hitting primarily slices on his backhand. del Potro apparently had a technique on his two-handed backhand that was causing him to hurt his left wrist. He's had to flatten out his two-hander, and use a lot of slice. Normally, this seems like a huge detriment to anyone's game, but del Potro has practiced this shot so much, that he's doing pretty well.
Well enough that he upset last year's quarterfinalist, Stan Wawrinka. Wawrinka found it difficult to attack del Potro despite the slice. When he went down the line, he often missed. He was left slicing shots back to del Potro. While his topspin backhand is one of the best in the business, his slice is less so, and the Delpo slice seemed to throw Stan's rhythm off, and lead to a Delpo win.
While Delpo got to play in a big court for that match, he was relegated to a smaller court to play his third round match against Lucas Pouille. Delpo won the first set in a tiebreak, and was up a break in the second set, but couldn't hold the break, and eventually lost the second set in a tiebreak, and the third set, 7-5. The match is scheduled to resume on middle Sunday, to see if Delpo can come back or not.
From his interview after his Wawrinka win, Delpo seemed uncertain about how he would fare playing back to back days, despite beating Wawrinka in four sets, and so his fitness seems suspect. The winner of this match takes on Bernie Tomic.
Americans fare well
It's been a while since Americans have fared this well at a Slam. Normally, by the third round, there's maybe one American left. This year, there's four. Jack Sock, Sam Querrey, Steve Johnson, and John Isner all made it to the third round.
Sock lost, once again, to Milos Raonic. Raonic may struggle to beat Nick Kyrgios, but he seems confident against Sock. It's rather impressive that Sock made it this far as clay seems like a much better surface for him, but he's showing he can handle the grass, at least, to some degree.
Steve Johnson, who struggled a bit earlier this year, seems to be back to exceeding expectations. Speaking of slice backhands, Johnson, like Delpo and Feliciano Lopez, relies on a slice backhand because his two-hander isn't so good, and Johnson seems to beat players that are even with him, and shows an uncanny ability to win, even if he's not yet ready to beat the real big boys. Still he knocked out Dimitrov, who seemed like he was starting to figure out his game once again. This has to be a setback for Dimitrov who seems lost ever since Maria left his life.
Of the four, Isner is the one whose generally produced the best results even if his game lacks a bit of variety. Isner at least shows he's ready to fight. And, he's done pretty well to take two sets off Tsonga, a player who is also known for his power, but seems to have stalled out his career in the past 2 years, when it seemed like maybe, with time, he could be a top 5 player.
The real surprise is Sam Querrey. Back around 2008, Querrey was a guy on the rise, and both he and Isner found their way to the top 20, behind Andy Roddick and Mardy Fish. Then, Querrey's game seemed to slide, possibly due to a marriage that was cancelled. Querrey's personal life seemed to interfere with his tennis success, and it seemed like he had faded (meanwhile, Donald Young, who had been a childhood rival seemed to be improving his game despite years of not living up to hype).
Lately, Querrey has been playing better. But he had to struggle to a 5-set win over Lukas Rosol in the opening round. Of course, no one expected Querrey to find a way to win. His coach, who he presumably pays his salary, offered a Forrest Gump-ian notion of thinking less, and hitting more, and not to overthink the game, and that seems to have helped.
The youngsters are coming
Tennis fans once lamented that there were no more young players. At one point, players like Dimitrov, Harrison (yes, him), and Tomic were allegedly the "next generation". Out of this group, maybe Tomic is still on track for success.
But it's been the generation after that (generations in tennis seem to be about 3-4 years) which includes Kyrgios, Thiem, Pouille, Vesely, Coric, Chung, Zverev, and a few others, that people are pointing to now.
Although it's not been terribly obvious, but 4 of them have made it to the fourth round: Vesely, Pouille, Kyrgios, and Zverev. Many had expected Thiem, at the very least, to have made it this far, but Thiem was upset by Vesely in three tiebreaks in the second round. Vesely might have a shot against the 31st seed, Joao Souza in the third round. Pouille is up 2 sets to love against del Potro. Kyrgios has split the opening 2 sets against Lopez. Zverev will face Berdych in the third round.
The mid top tenners are doing all right
There are a list of players that have often been in the top ten, but aren't at the top, i.e.. players that aren't Federer, Djokovic,Nadal,Murray, or Stan (let's add him for good measure). These are Tsonga, Berdych, and, let's add Gasquet to this list.
For a number of years, we saw these players are potentially winning a Slam, but after years of trying, Tsonga slipped out of the top 10, Berdych is ranked 9, but seeded 10 (and only because Nadal isn't playing).
Because they haven't been doing well lately, most people have hardly paid attention to the fact that all 3 are in the third roudn.
Of the 3, Gasquet is currently in the best shape, up 2 sets to 1 over Ramos Vinolas, while Tsonga is in the worst, down 2 sets to 1 to Isner, and Berdych will have his hands full against Zverev.
Sneaky Tomic
For a number of years, Tomic only played well in two places: Australia and Wimbledon. Last year, he had a pretty good year, getting some decent results in the US. With Aussie attention aimed mostly at Kyrgios (when will Kokkinakis return to tour?) and even to Hewitt (who unretired to play doubles) and Millman, few are noticing Tomic.
Tomic had the misfortune of drawing Verdasco in the opening round, or perhaps Verdasco had the misfortune of drawing Tomic. In either case, Tomic won the match in 5 sets. Tomic also played 4 long sets to beat Albot. He felt that he needed to beat Bautista Agut quickly (perhaps fitness is still an issue), and said he zoned out playing the Spaniard, where all his well-struck shots were landing in. Tomic faces the winner of Pouille/del Potro next, and has to feel good about his chances of reaching the quarters.
He's in section 6 which is the top quarter of the bottom half of the draw, and currently, the most friendly part of the draw, with no huge favorites in that section.
Interesting fourth rounders
Two fourth round matches are of interest. There's David vs. Goliath serve, that is, David Goffin vs. Milos Raonic. The two have split head to head. Both matches went 3 sets, and both were on hard courts. Raonic is likely seen as the favorite given his big serve, but certainly Goffin is crafty.
The other is a rematch of the 2014 US Open finals: a match between Cilic and Nishikori. Neither are huge fans of grass. Cilic has won at Queen's, but otherwise, much prefers hard courts. Nishikori also prefers hard courts, but has recently shown skill on clay. That both of them have made it this far shows that being highly ranked generally means you can play well on any surface.
Nishikori leads the head-to-head 7-3, but Cilic leads Slam meetups 2-1 (all 3 meetings have been at the US Open).
With Djokovic out of the draw, things are going to get interesting. I think, if you asked people who would do well at Wimbledon besides Djokovic, fans would point to Murray, Federer, and maybe Raonic. Maybe some hoped Thiem might do all right (since he did win a grass event). Maybe some hoped Stan would win on grass.
The big doubt was how well would Federer recover. This is still an issue. Federer has managed to do fine because his draw has been pretty friendly. Even Steve Johnson is not expected to surprise Federer, but at some point, Federer will play someone tough, and the question is whether he can handle it.
With Djokovic out, many are pointing to Murray as the favorite to win. He's playing solid tennis, but he's starting to get to the tricky part of the draw. He'd be favored over Kyrgios or Lopez, but Kyrgios can be a tricky player. Murray would probably prefer Lopez.
If he can get past that round, he'd likely face one of Gasquet or Isner or Tsonga. Again, he'd be favored. He'd probably least like to face Tsonga, though Gasquet and Isner are probably in better form. Regardless, the next two rounds aren't going to be easy.
Federer, by contrast, is probably most concerned about his quarterfinal matchup. I'm probably underestimating Steve Johnson who has a decent serve and forehand and seems to win against players near his rank.
And someone is likely to immediately benefit from Djokovic's loss. It's often not the guy that pulled the upset (Querrey) but his opponent who happens to be Mahut, and grass is Mahut's favorite surface. Mahut will see this as an opportunity of a lifetime.
Anyway, things look pretty interesting in the second week of Wimbledon.
