    Re: ATP 500 St Petersburg 10/12-10/18/20

    Deja vu! After a dominating first set, a Canadian breaks himself early in the second.

    Raonic needed to hit the ball only five times (ace, ace, ace, midcourt winner on his first groundstroke) to win the first game of the match and cruised to a 61 first set (Coric only avoiding the bagel by holding at love-5). Coric has been much sharper in the second set, and Raonic double faulted twice to lose his first service game of the second set (actually, the first service game he's lost all week). Now at 0-3, 15-40 as Coric has passed him with balls that landed right on the sideline a couple of times.

    Thank goodness I won't have to wake up so early tomorrow. I like both men playing in the Final so hoping each man brings his "A" game.

    ^ Yes, it was uncanny how similar the two matches played out - right down to the final result.

    So... a few weeks ago, we had Leylah go up 5-1 vs. Kvotova, only to lose the match. Then yesterday, we had Denis dominate the 1st set only to lose the match. Then we had Milos dominate the 1st set only to lose the match.
    There is clearly something defective in the Canadian water!
    This also completely explains some of my own on-court performances, as well, of course...

    And sure enough. ESPN will NOT show the final. They are showing the Giro D'Italia (cycling) on two of their networks, but tennis? Nah, it is Sunday, nothing happens in tennis on Sundays.
    Face it. It's the apocalypse.

    ^ Using the 25 second clock for photos, as well, is overkill.
