No-one's looked unbeatable so far: Zverev was wobbling massively against Griekspoor, idem Novaxx against Musetti; Stefanos looks good but beatable, and Carlitos hasn't really been tested as yet.

R98 a bit of both - Moutet's just throwing all kinds of improvised shit into the mix and confusing Sinner. At the back end of the set, Sinner started to get his serve back and get things back under control.

If this was best of three I think Moutet could have a chance, but not over 5. Anyway, it looks like I should be entertaining, at least.

by Anonymousreply 100June 2, 2024 7:17 PM

"Well for those of us who can't watch, what's going on? Is this French guy winning or is Sinner choking? "

Moutet is playing better than he ever has. He's small and super mobile, so getting every ball back that he can - which is a lot. He's a lefty which is always a different look. He's playing super high energy and fearless, and throwing everything at Sinner - hard winners, high loopers, slices, drop shots, under hand serves. He's just playing well and taking away Sinner's rhythm and also planting a tiny seed of doubt. It's like he did a couple lines of coke before coming out.

by Anonymousreply 101June 2, 2024 7:28 PM

by Anonymousreply 102June 2, 2024 7:41 PM

Jannik will most likely get through. All due credit to Moutet, but it's very difficult to maintain what he did in the first set for a full best of five match against a Sinner-caliber opponent. Plus even if Moutet did keep playing at a very high level, Sinner's "shock" will dissipate and he can make adjustments.

R133 He also plays really boring tennis. Alcaraz plays the most exciting tennis imo. Too bad it's so error-prone. He tends to make a lot of unforced errors. Sinner plays cleaner tennis, and has a better serve, so he usually wins. However, I'd rather watch Alcaraz's aggressive, fun, error-prone tennis than Sinner's boring "perfect" tennis. Sorry, it's just my opinion. Another reason I dislike Sinner is because he has ZERO personality. He rarely ever smiles. Ever. Alcaraz smiles all the time. He even cries sometimes when he loses. He shows his emotions. It's very refreshing and I think that's why fans connect with him. He has that x factor, a bubbly personality and he plays aggressive, fun tennis. Sinner might perform better, and end up with more slams (he probably will tbh), but I don't think he'll ever be as popular or have as many fans as Alcaraz. He lacks the x factor. People will respect Sinner and his accomplishments, but that's it.

Amelie Mauresmo really is nothing but a figurehead. I bet she has absolutely no decision-making power in her role as tournament director. I’m not sure that James Blake, Tommy Haas or Feliciano Lopez do much more, but Amelie should be embarrassed as a woman “running” a grand slam tournament.

R161 I can't speak to her level of oversight but as tournament director, she is privy to both hard and anecdotal data about what is driving box office, viewership, and overall engagement on the ground. She knows that women's tennis is at a low point in popularity and star power, but it's not her primary job to turn that around - that's on the WTA. She'd be doing a poor job if she wasn't optimizing the schedule to showcase the matches people actually want to see. There are definitely structural changes that can be made at the margins to equalize the playing field more so these discrepancies aren't as blatant. But the hard truth is that, at least at this moment, casual fans prefer watching the men. The stadium optics alone make that abundantly clear.

The French Open is particularly bad. The other Slams, ESPN+ will get it done for the most part.

For the French Open, you need Tennis Channel via your cable subscription or FuboTV or Sling (no longer on Youtube TV) or Tennis Channel Plus (which only has a $100+ yearly option) and Peacock. Some of it is broadcast on regular NBC, but they'll stop coverage at the end of the predetermined window and you might have to finish a match on Peacock. If you want coverage of every court - you need to have TC+.

Zverev settled. I think he's guilty. Several women have come forward, not just one. I don't think they would lie. Maybe one would lie, but two? Nah. Not likely. I also saw the way he was treating the female umpire in that one match. He talked down to her, disrespecting her, was borderline verbally abusing her. He even grabbed her arm or something. It just looks like he doesn't respect women at all. He seems like a misogynistic asshole. So yeah, I think he did it. I think he's guilty.

I rather like the Stell Artois commericial where David Beckham thinks the woman wants to talk to him but just wants to get by to get her beers. I know it by heart now. Though it won't push me to run out and enjoy a Stella - there's too many other beers and drinks generally that I prefer.

Anyway, I was watching Gil Gross or somebody who said the networks don't like showing tennis because it's too hard to predict how long the matches will be so scheduling is a nightmare.

R546 The ATP lucked out with Alcaraz. Not only does he play really fun tennis, he also has a really sweet personality. You can just tell he's a kind person. I love how he always smiles. He has the x-factor. I don't hate Sinner, I even think Sinner has more potential than Alcaraz in the long run. But Sinner does not have the sweet, bubbly personality Alcaraz has, and personally I'm not a fan of his tennis. I think Alcaraz's tennis is a lot more fun to watch. Anyways, I agree. Tennis is in good hands with Alcaraz.

ESPN+ (it was ESPN3 back then) amazingly used to be free for the slams maybe 10 years ago - and it was free for several years. Everything but the center courts were free to watch. And there were no commercials either - the feed was live and uninterrupted which lead to some great video of shirtless players during changeovers. All the outer courts had a devoted channel and were shown throughout the day.

They probably thought who'd want to watch a match on court 15 at Wimbledon featuring players ranked outside the top 50 or some doubles matches. Why bother chargin for something no one would watch? It turned out lots of people were interested and ESPN saw that there was money to be squeezed out of people.

Of course all good things come to an end. Now everything requires subscriptions on top of subscriptions, some courts are not shown at all, and they jam tons of commericals into the coverage now.
