Happy for the kid. He's had a lot of misfortune with his body, so it's fantastic that he gets this result in his career. Beating world number 1 Federer in a masters event is the biggest win of his career to date.
When Kyrgios and Kokk played the junior final at AO everyone was saying leading in that Kyrgios would win but Kokk would be the better player long term. Not sure even injury free that would be the case but like you said would definitely be a top 30 player if his body held up.
Was an excellent performance to follow this morning. So glad for the Kokk, always a player oozing in likeability. Had to get through Qualies, so don't expect him to get far, but to take out Federer like that at a Masters tournament is a career highlight. Still, I'd rather take a healthy run with injuries over beating Federer and then getting injured again, hope his body holds up for him.
I think Serena is done. A year off at her age is tough to come back from. Plus I thought the field was closing before she had her baby(though she did win the AO, I thought her losses to Pliskova, Mug and Kerber were a sign.
And Caro's mention of his name almost sounds like she'd never heard of him! She noted it as a notable statistical upset which instigated a top ranking change, also valid news/historical points, but yes, the way she worded him as some no-name was surprising but realistic I guess. Kelly nicely cleaned up with the "Adelaide boy" mention. But it might be a misreading on my part.
