Experts' picks: Don't bet against Rafael Nadal and Sloane Stephens

Zverev needs mindset change to make Slam breakthrough say pundits

Zverev needs mindset change to make Slam breakthrough say pundits

At the beginning, I was playing really good, then towards the end he picked it up.

A long list of returns highlights Day 1 at the U.S. Open as the year's last Grand Slam tennis tournament gets started. I'm so sorry because I can't finish the match. "I will miss you a lot".

"Finally I made a decision to retire because it's worse to play and break it, break everything", Ferrer said. He's one of my closest friends on tour. "We are close friends and have shared great moments - the Roland Garros final and Davis Cup wins".

Nadal showed he was not bothered by the shot clock during a US Open tune-up in Toronto where he lost only one set en route to collecting a record-extending 33rd Masters title.The 32-year-old is not a fan of the new measure, although not due to concerns about receiving a time violation but rather because he feels it will diminish the quality of play. At first, I honestly think we were both very tight, and I don't think the level was great. But that's like this. This is my last Grand Slam. I tried two more games. "So it is not his last event". Ferrer, who was ranked as high as No. 3 but is now 148th, made clear he plans to play a selective schedule of tournaments in 2019.

He beat the world number one in NY - just one of six wins in 31 meetings between the two - on his way to a maiden Slam semi-final in 2007.

Their respective form since them made this far less of an upset, although Dimitrov was the eighth seed while Wawrinka is still ranked just outside the top 100.

Wawrinka swept to a 6-3, 6-2, 7-5 victory to repeat his opening round triumph over Dimitrov at Wimbledon.

"The first time I came here last week, one week ago for practice, seeing, looking around a little bit", said Wawrinka.

Donald Trump Meets With FIFA President, Red Cards The Media!!
President Trump is welcoming FIFA's newest president Gianni Infantino to the White House on Tuesday. The United States , Canada and Mexico will jointly hold the next games.

Perhaps aware he needed to finish the match quickly, the sixth seed destroyed a racket after failing to break the Fucsovics serve for 3-2 in the second set, and the Hungarian won the next two games as well. I have really good memories here.

"I'm happy I never stumbled at the first hurdle".

One of the most eagerly-anticipated matches of the day was between Canadian teenagers Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Ferrer, 36, had already announced that NY would represent his final major before quitting for good on home ground in Madrid next year.

Sadly for the younger man, he was forced to retire in tears in the third set after experiencing heart palpitations in the hot and humid conditions.

"It's one of the reasons the US Open is the toughest test in tennis", USTA spokesman Chris Widmaier told Reuters on Tuesday.

Playing in the new Louis Armstrong Stadium, the 2012 US Open champion needed five sets to top James Duckworth 6-7, (5-7), 6-3, 7-5, 6-3.
