Khachanov has had a disappointing start to the season considering his great end to last season including beating Djokovic to win the Paris masters.

Isner and Opelka just played a 30 point tiebreak.

Isner had 6 match points but lost the second set 14-16.

Longest tiebreak in tour history is only 20-18 which surprised me a bit. Lower levels have got to higher numbers but not at the top level.

And Opelka beats him again.

Opelka v Schnur final.

The court announcer asked Opelka what is it about matches between the two going to tiebreaks....

"Yeah well we both serve good but can't return or play groundies for shit", he didn't say that but he should have.

A set all so far, Millman won the second set tiebreak easily. Nick has had a warning for an audible obscenity and is looking glum.

GO JOHNNY!!! :D

Edit: Nick is now getting treatment for his knee.

Millman is playing well but just can't make inroads on Nick's serve. Nick is serving well but doesn't seem to be making much of an effort to break Millman's serve.
