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.

Ajla's game is a bit like Dokic's game from a decade back.

PLAN A - hit the ball as hard as you possibly can
PLAN B - hit it even harder

This is the Karatsev I know. What a shot maker.

Sorry to keep pestering but if anyone has the full game for Rune vs Kwon
it would be much appreciated

It was a enthralling 5setter and I would love to see it back again

History shows that players who back up after winning a tournament, often lose first round of the next tournament - The bigger picture with Kokkinakis. Is it better to have two weeks of good results in lead up tournaments, including winning a tournament or win a round or two in the Australian Open ? I would choose the former - The few today that criticised Kokk's performance have a limited understanding of tennis.
