    Kyrgios took a really awkward looking fall early in the match v. DYj and is not receiving MTO. Looks like they're working on the hip, which was his problem recently ago. He's looking a little grim.

    He persevered through the TB, but when he lost, he retired. Probably good move. He looked a little tentative on it.

    Shapovalov has a future. He has the nice serve, very powerful forehand, serviceable backhand. Needs experience. Racked head speed is right up there. He will figure out to use his leftieness to his advantage. With that big forehand, he can be a nightmare for a lot of players.

    We hope that the players don't start to slip and fall on grass, Kyrgios got the worst fall

    It is an exciting time to be a Canadian tennis fan (aka @herios), with two legit prospects in Shapo and "the Auger." (You heard those nicknames from my first ;-).

    Cilic and Isner will likely only be interesting to insomniacs who are looking for a nap.

    Not a good omen for Kyrgios. Apparently did his hip when slipping on the grass. Hope his withdrawal is more of a precaution than anything severe. Want this guy to be firing on all cylinders at Wimbledon.

    I'm sure it was precautionary to withdraw, but it was an ugly slip. At least he kept playing for awhile.

    Probably but more than to watch the match which I won't and the múltiples aces I'm thinking about the result

    Got ya. Much more interesting to know who wins, than to watch. I'll be rooting for Isner. From afar.
