Rafa's bombing his FH as usual.

If Federer can get past Edmund, we'll have a juicy Federer-Nadal matchup in the semifinals.

I think it would be quarterfinals right?

Any of you been to Indian Wells? Thinking of heading out for the finals on Sunday. The nosebleeds are $270 per though which is a lot more expensive than I would have thought.

Yeah I was using the nosebleeds as a baseline for cheapest ticket. Before I looked I thought I'd be able to get mid tier loge seats for a couple hundred but that's not even close to reality. Pretty surprised.

Rafa called the trainer over in the second set and he’s getting treatment on his knee, it looks like. Decent chance he retires given his history.

He toughed it out and won! But he'll have to heal quickly...

The kid wins! That was a fucking GREAT 3rd set, can’t remember an 18-year old as poised as her. 

Canada, you got one.

That is one hell of a slight to Bianca. 

I meant it as an expression of admiration, but mangled it. She suffered like hell for that win, tremendous guts

Three break points thrown away with three backhand errors...

...but he gets the fourth!

Fed will need to drop to 250 level events to catch Connors. Doubt he's willing to do that tho

He played (and won) Stuttgart last year... although that's a function of the lack of top-level grass tournaments more than anything

He'll still win Basel every year and he'll always compete at Halle/Queen's as long as he plays. This was by far the easiest imaginable draw for him + a W/O in the Semifinals and he still couldn't close the deal. His best M1000 event going forward will likely be Shanghai given it's the fastest HC surface. IW was basically clay disguised as a hardcourt surface and Miami, Toronto/Montreal, Cinci, and Paris aren't exactly fast surfaces either...

From some article... 

Quote

"Mari Osaka’s current live ranking is No. 338 in the world. Her career high is only No. 280 in the world. Osaka has played two events this year, losing 6-0 6-0 in the first round of the Newport Challenger this year and losing in straight sets in qualifying for ITF Midland. And yet, she is a wild card into this big event."

Naomi is rep'd by IMG, Miami's owner. 

 

Also, the layout is fucking badass now.
