US Open - Day Six

Post by CaledonianCraig on Sat 03 Sep 2016, 11:19 am

First topic message reminder :

Can Murray and Evans make it four British in the Fourth Round. Both face totally different challenges. Murray faces Lorenzo who had a marathon match lasting almost five hours in the previous round whilst Evans faces dual slam winner Stan Wawrinka. Also Del Potro is in action as are Dimitrov and Kyrgios.

Evans holds serve despite being taken to deuce and his first serve deserting him there and leads 6-4 3-6 7-6 3-3.

Dan pushes a cross court shot wide and Stan bags the tie-breaker and you can't help but feel the match has gone right there.

Two sets all after three and a half hours and you'd back Stan's superior fitness and experience now.

Just one or two loose points. Chilean TV finally cutting to the match deep into the tiebreak. I mostly only have 1 channel for this US Open.

Rafa's absolutely cruised along so far, btw.

Just looking at who hasn't lost a set. Rafa. Monfils, Del Potro are the only ones after three rounds.

Kyrgios is playing R3 tonight I think: already won the first 2 rounds in straights.

And Kyrgios will be loving this Wawrinka/Evans match as he plays (or probably will play) the winner of this match and it will be four hours long match for them.

Monumental from Dan the Man, but maybe this is the end. He has to slow the game down to avoid the double break.

Evans unravelling sadly and looks to be cramping. Now up to Stan to complete the coup de gras as he smells a second break of serve which he gets with a double break.
