    How do we not yet have the ability to stream multiple matches on the screen at one time?!?! Is it not 2018?!?!

    Have heard Harrison/Dudi is getting heated. Dudi Sela fans are some of the best in all of tennis, and I’m sure they’ll get into Harrison’s head. Still don’t think he has enough weapons to beat Harrison.

    In terms of tennis quality, Edmund/Anderson is the one to watch. Both of these guys can hit the cover off the ball. Edmund’s nike outfit is atrocious, but man is his forehand effective.

    Close first set thus far. Seems like the match will come down to who is able to move better. Anderson moves well for someone his height, but neither player is particularly quick. Edmund tweaked ankle in Brisbane, but has looked healthy thus far.

    First set to Kevin Anderson 7-6 (4). Took advantage of two poor Edmund second serves at 5-4 and 6-4 to secure the first set. Both players doing well to protect their serves/take control of points on serve. Edmund needs to keep moving Anderson side-to-side and do a better job of making first serves. Tough to break a player like Anderson, but Edmund has had chances

    I’ve got Anderson making a run to the quarters so he needs an easy win tonight. Also ESPN2 is playing the Ostapenko/Schiavone match and I’m thrilled to see Schiavone still has that incredibly aggressive grunt.

    Amen on the multi-screen comment! There’s only so much back and forth I can do with my tv/computer/phone.

    Hell of a first set there. Came down to a few points in the breaker. I think the difference going forward for Edmund is his willingness/unwillingness to move forward and get to the net. He has to close the court on the big South African or it’ll be a quick exit for the Brit.

    Schiavone rocking the back brace? Bold move, Cotton.

    No way Edmund pulls this off, but that was a big break just now in the second set.

    I’ll point out that Edmund made 71% of his first serves in the second set….

    Looking like the Anderson/Edmund match is going to go the distance

    I was so close to predicting an Isner loss….
