Zverev looked rusty today but should improve with more matches - Can you imagine Rothenburg's meltdown on twitter if Zverev wins the AO.

Have a questions about the crowds ? They looked to be down even taking into account the 50% crowd cap - I've attended the first week on a few occasions where I focus on the outside courts and it's Jam packed with people - You need the overseas visitors back who add to the vibe of the event.
Day 1 had about 38% attendance compared to 2020.

Djokovic's visa has been cancelled.

Does Rublev take his spot now?

First AO without Djokovic since 2004.

First slam where Nadal is playing without Federer and Djokovic featuring.

Aussie Rafa going for his 21st grand slam on home soil

Couldn't script it any better (aside from Tiley getting the boot after the men's final :p).

Chalk up another fu** up from Tiley, if you are going to delay the OOP might as well wait the whole time out for the actual decision

I’d say a few logistical issues to sort out, like ensuring 64 players, match officials, ball kids, media, etc know where they have to be tomorrow.

So we get some sh*t match between a serbian and a lucky loser on centre court. Massive F Up by TA

Relax, geez. You're probably the only one who thinks they'd keep caruso/kecmanovic on RLA for the night session
