Seeing a 18yo beat Nadal is a definitive feel old moment for me... I still see Nadal as a teen prodigy lol.

Amazing match. Shapovalov seemed incredibly clutch for an 18 year old. If he can improve his net game he will be one for the future. The most fun thing to see was Shapovalov and his Nadal-like abundant celebrations. Nadal must have felt old, lol.

Nadal was too passive and just overall kinda bad.

Nadal will overtake him no matter what if Federer skips Cincy.

I was impressed that Wozniacki actually managed to come back in the third. Seemed like Pliskova was going to roll.

Cincinnati draw is out:

Men's projected QFs

Nadal v Tsonga
Thiem v Nishikori

Zverev v Raonic
Fed v Dimitrov

Women's projected QFs

Pliskova v Wozniacki
Muguruza v Kuznetsova

Kerber v Svitolina
Halep v Konta


Haven't looked terribly closely but Nadal could get Muller in the third round, Delpo v Berdych first round, Goffin v Kyrgios first round

Given Agassi's upbringing he's definitely not going to force his kid to play a sport he doesn't want to

The other two semifinalists are Halep and Svitolina who cant hit her out of the court and are certainly no mental giants, so yeah... Probably not.

Makes sense. Never really read up on Agassi.

Timea has the same thing but since she stopped talking to her dad and taking a break her enjoyment came back.

Casually reaching every masters and gs final he paticipated in.

One win away from taking the lead in the race, which means nadal would have to outplay him this fall to reach 1.

If my parents were famous professional athletes I would stay far away from their sport. You'd spend your whole life trying to get out from their shadow, always being compared to them.

Thrilling women's semi here. At least the Sloane-Woz one was moderately entertaining.

Pretty sure Svitolina crushed her in one of those lost finals so wouldn't say it's a given

Shapavalov needs to win another 3 setter if he wants to advance.
Zverev will probably close it out in two though.

Shapovalov can't be too sad about that loss, but it's a shame about gifting those 2 breaks at the end of both sets and not making one of the numerous break points near the end. Hopefully we see a lot more in the future.

Sascha has a great chance tomorrow with Fed.
Fed has played pretty average this whole week which is good enough for beating guys not in the top 10.
Fed has never won in Montreal so I'm rooting for him.

Zverev is really impressive this year. All he needs to do now is up his game at Gran Slams and just stay on route. He is still so young, got like 10+ years in him.

i wouldn't say scary but he's impressive

Zverev will be 7th next week and he has 9 months to improve. with djoko and wawa out he will probably gain a few ranks.
Nadal at #2 at 19, now that's scary.

Great run for Shapovalov this week,my prediction before the Nadal match,that I made sarcastically,almost came through lol...I think Shapo will be around 70 in the rankings come Monday,a nice jump.His team is asking the USO for a wildcard,I hope he gets in...

Great match from Zverev...the way Federer played this week,if he plays the same today,Zverez will win the Rogers Cup.

Her ranking still isn't high enough to get a direct acceptance. If the US Open doesn't give her a wildcard, she will have to come through qualifying. Hopefully the USOpen won't reward the doper with a wild card
