    last time I saw his forehand it had improved by miles..i was about to say he is improving,:-)2 I'm looking to see more of him, he is turning into a beast, as with a lot of younger players like coric kyle needs time to adapt to the muscular power of the atp tour and get used to not being pushed back into too defensive a court position in rallies. :boxing:

    taylor fritz wins usa battle, McGee was 2pts from victory and had his hopes dashed by recently minted newbrit bedene in three.

    I noticed fgasquet is in the draw..lol. playing right before usopen tells us he's not thinking of a long run at this years 4th major. :nono:
    john isner surprisingly isn't playing..maybe he is thinking of resting up b4 a a big run of win at the aforementioned usopen. :yesyes:

    Millman is an Aussie, not one of the young guns but a veteran of 27, enjoying one of his best years.

    It's been a bad year for Gasquet and he has QF points at the USO so he could fall quite a bit more yet.

    It is a good surprise to see Pablo Carreno-Busta to win his first ATP title. Especially considering that it came on a HC, while his best surface is clay.
