Re: US Open contest 2021

You have an excellent chance to win this time. 

Zverev played at a higher level in the Olympics and Cincinnati than Djokovic did in winning the first three slams. If he can replicate that form at a slam for the first time--a big if--the people who think this is all in Djokovic's hands will be proven wrong. I'm betting his game will drop and the double faults will return, but it's not certain by any means. 

However, I don't take Kerber seriously on a hard court anymore. I hope I'm wrong because I love her game, but I would not be shocked if she loses in the first round to Yastremska, who hits a huge ball but usually gets flustered and falls apart. Yastremska might get too big a lead to get flustered this time. And even if Kerber wins that one, I don't see her getting past the third round.

Re: US Open contest 2021

Today's matches will determine the winner.

We have the same number of quarterfinalists (you have 5 women and 4 men to my 6 women and 3 men), I have one more semifinalist (Sabalenka), and you have 2 points for de Minaur as the biggest loser (PCB was the biggest loser on the men's side while Barty was on the women's side).  It all comes down to the Djokovic v. Zverev match.  Zverev was not good against Harris, so we'll see if he plays well today.

Re: US Open contest 2021

You again proved to be the Hingis to my Kournikova.  Though I can take some consolation in fact that Medvedev won.  While I acknowledge Djokovic's greatness, I have just never warmed to him as a player.

That said, it was a wild, wild tournament on the women's side.  Who had Raducanu d. Fernandez in their bracket?  Not even di-10s, I would say.
