    US Open Tennis starting tomorrow...

    American Players I will be keeping an eye on....

    Men....
    Jenson Brooksby-crazy pinball like defensive game
    Seb Korda-next best bet for a top 10 American player
    Marcos Giron-steady as anyone and climbing
    Brandon Nakashima-great all around game that doesn't fear anyone
    Jack Sock-former top 10 who is starting to play better
    Reilly Opelka-not a big fan but has a lot of recent success
    Frances Tiafoe-playing a lot better of late. Can he make the turn?

    Women....
    Jessica Petula-has had a great year and hopes to conintue it
    Cory Gauff-has the game to beat ANYONE in the field just needs to capitalize on it
    Daniell Collins-has had a great year thus far but I work about burnout
    Coco Vandeweghe-finally semi healthy and with a big game. Wouldn't want to face her early

    Other notable stuff in the 1st round:

    - Kyrgios bounced and he threw a nutty.
    - Murray took Tsitsipas to five sets, but lost.
    - Korda had to leave with an injury.
    - Maxime Cressy upset Carreno-Busta.
    Now begins the winter of our discombobulation.

    Tsitsipas....taking a lot of bathroom breaks. Kind of sounds like his name....

    Tiafoe is cracking me up in this match against Rublev. Very entertaining tennis.

    Wow great night for Americans. Opelka and Brooksby join Tiafoe in the round of 16. Sock still to play. Shelby Rogers comes back down in third set to defeat world #1 Ash Barty. She is the lone American left in the round of 16.

    I have new respect for Opelka after his servebot comments. LOL google it...

    ...and there was Brooksby. Lone American left and he just has to face Djoker lol. Barring a miracle we will have no Americans men or women in the quarters. What an awful collapse...

    I should stop getting excited by the US Men as this should be of no surprise to anyone. For the US Women though its a a stunningly bad result...

    Holy crap Brooksby was a +1600 dog! I mean I knew he would be a heavy underdog but 16 to 1??? Dang I should have put some money on it. BTW he's up 3-0!

    +540 Brooksby to win the first set looking pretty good too.
    Djokovic to win 3-1 (+310) | 3-2 (+950) also seemed likely pretty dang good bets too!


    BTW I thought it was pretty telling when they Asked Djokovic about Brooksby after his last win and he said something like "Brooksby is definitely someone the locker room is talking about"...meaning he is in his head already to some extent. Not even the Djoker is immune to nerves especially in his chase for the legendary Calendar Year Slam

    IBM has Brooksby at 39% chance to win! LOL

    Impressive to get the 20 minute long game to get back on serve in the second.

    She's a blast to watch. The court coverage, lefty spin and on-the-run shot making is reminiscent of Rafa.

    It's been a fun tournament, which I didn't really expect with so many absent faces we're used to seeing. I think Alcarez might lose tonight, but he's going to be a star.
