    I hope Mischa wins against Lukas. He can give Roger could practice on grass tennis. Roger will need to hit passing shots to win. That'd be good for him going forward. Lukas won't help much.

    Talking about match practice, this will be important.

    Dustin Brown and Pospisil in a great fight. Apparently Brown had MPs in the 2nd.

    Brown takes it in the 3rd set TB, with some stylish and creative shotmaking. What a character. And he shows up for the grass season, once again, right on schedule.

    Nice comeback win by Rublev. I watched some of the match late last night (Hawaii time), and was struck both by Rublev's weaponry and erratic mentality. He is easily frustrated, perhaps due to his young age (19), but he's got some real game. I went do bed with him down a set and break and woke up fully expecting to see the final line be something like 7-6, 6-3, but instead he came back and won the match. Rublev is ripe for a big leap forward.

    I watched the first game and Zverev had started well. Playing with command and hitting winners. If he goes deep, it will be interesting to see if his game holds up. I just guess he is a better player on grass than on clay.

    No one has told the guys at Tennis Channel, and they keep calling this guy Lu, I guess because he's Asian-looking. Oh...they finally figured it out.
