    Salisbury Steak won! Both he and Ram came up with terrific volleys in the match tiebreak. Steak held his ground at the net when the opponent had a decent look at an overhead, and he was able to block it back for a surprise volley winner. Then Rajeev poached while leading 8-6 in the tiebreak and got completely jammed by the return but managed to block it back for a winner. Took it on the first match point.

    Ram/Steak is my new favorite doubles team of all time.

    Federer wins in straight sets.

    Thiem can win the group if he beats Djokovic ... then Djokovic-Federer would decide second.

    If Djokovic wins, no one will be out or through yet... although if Djokovic wins in straight sets he will be way ahead in sets and games and would have to get thrashed by Fed not to go through.
    A Canadian Slam winner? Inconceivable!

    thank god Djokovic is unstoppable, saving us from the dreaded 3-way tie scenario.

    We could only have a three way tie in that group IF Djokovic wins today. If he is unstoppable and wins next two matches, then all it takes is Berrettini beating Thiem and we have a three way 1-2 tie!

    So cheer for Theim today! Then if there is a tie for first it will be H2H decided, with Thiem beating both people he could tie with.

    Thiem was super close to really taking a commanding lead in the 3rd, but that's gone now. And Novak seems to gotten over whatever had him in a funk for a set and a half. He's so moody.

    I can’t believe the game that Thiem just played serving for the match. Not a single first serve in and 4 ues
