US Open 2017: Early Thoughts

  • Venus Williams moved to 19-0 in first round matches at the US Open.  That stat is quite impressive.
  • Garbine Muguruza’s Cincinnati title has her looking like the future of the WTA.  She has suffered no hangover after her 2nd major.  Her first major led to more than a year of indifferent tennis.  She seems to have learned to cope with massive success.
  • Grigor Dimitrov has a chance to recover his early 2017 form and make a run at Fedal.
  • Sacha Zverev’s summer is what tennis needed after a season that looked a lot like 2006 from January through July.
  • John Isner won two titles to start the North American Summer, but is he a contender for the final 8 in NYC?
  • Andy Murray could have pulled out prior to the draw being announced.  Should he have?  I think so.
  • Rafa has a workable draw and is #1 in the world again.  Is his form where he needs it to be?
