    Kind of says it all about the more random nature of WTA that Keys v Stephens was the US Open final the other year.

    It's getting even more strange when you realize that neither of them was seeded in the draw.

    Tiny bit slower than the old court surface decoturf which will definitely help Djokovich.

    But,just a few days ago,Djokovic said (after practice with Shapovalov) they've both agreed that surface is 15% faster than last year and it will be even 15% faster in second week of the tournament. Ok,those are their impressions but still..i don't think that conditions will be that slow..

  3. Berrettini is enjoying a very good season so far. Except of Bublik and Fokina,his defeats are coming from better ranked players: Medvedev,Tsitsipas,Zverev and Djokovic. His record is 26-5 which is pretty decent,i would say.
    So far,he didn't show any sign of injury,fatigue problems..

    But above all this - he've improved his game. Particulary on backhand side. Before,his bh was very vulnerable. Not even average,but poor. These days his bh is solid. Not solid as his forehand,but it's no longer poor..he is now able not just to hit cross-court bh,but also down the line..also his slice is decent enough..so plenty shots to mix with.. of course his serve and fh are stil his "trademark" shots,very powerful shots..
    His footwork is nice, which is very important on grass surface especially

    His return shots are no more than average,but i believe that he could 'live' with it..like i said - tough nutt to crack and don't believe anyone will fancy him in draw.

    Norrie to beat Thiem at 3.94 with Pinnacle
    Norrie (+1.5 Sets) to beat Thiem at 2.00 with Pinnacle

    Norrie never did well on clay but this year his results on this surface has been impressive (11-3). In Barcelona he reached the QFs after beating Caruso, Khachanov and Goffin. In Estoril he reached the Final after beating J.Sousa, Pedro Martinez, Garin and Cilic. In Rome he beat Cuevas, Cecchinato and Carballes. In his first match here he has beat Moutet in straight sets. Norrie has lost against Nadal, Ramos (in a 3 set match decided by a TB) and Fokina. Thiem has not convinced me at all. In Madrid he lost in straight sets against Zverev after beating De Minaur and Isner in 2 tough matches. Then, he lost in his second match in Rome against Sonego in a 3 set match after beating Fucsovics in another 3 set match. I saw the whole match and Fucsovics could have won that match in 2 sets. If he's playing here is cause he knows he's not ready for the FO so I expect Norrie to have some options here.

    Thank you so very much on this one,Darko. Cheers :cheers

  5. Just how pathetic player is Davidovich-Fokina,incredible. Krajinovic was literally locked in his hotel room for 5,6 days..no words to explain. On plus side,he's serving ridiculously good. 

    Obviously,I have to apologize to everyone here,especially to Czech. I wanted to put some good,quality information on thread,but sometimes in terms of betting is better to know less. 

  6. Krajinovic was in lockdown in Doha until last night. Last five days he even couldn't leave his room. So,no practice of whatsoever. He even joined a show on Serbian television via Zoom,complaining about the treatment and the situation with the quarantine rules. He said that all this does make sense and that upon his return to Belgrade ,he will sit down with his team and see what next.
    He flew last nihgt to Dubai,and already today he's playing a match. I wouldn't be too optimistic about his performance.


  7. Am I the only one who thinks that Dimitrov can reach the final here? It's paid around 5.50 in my local bookies. Karatsev run surely has to come to a end..he's lacking both routine and experience at this stage,and conditions are very favorable to Grigor's game. He's obviously enjoying them a lot. Plus,he was already in this stage of the Grand Slam,so probably won't be nervous as his opponent. 
    And also,by the look of things,neither Zverev nor Djokovic are playing best tennis at the moment,plus they both have similar stomach muscle injuries..

    Any opinion?
