    I just spent 30 minutes doing a write-up for this match and lost the context. Talk about a major goof. I do not have the time to re-write it either as it was quite lengthy. Here is my ...

    Ok I respect the logic here with Stan being fresher and such, and even the fact that Z has played 20 additional games 58-38. However, I have been saying for quite a while that we are looking at a future grand sla...

    I have no idea if Tommy Hass will win today but in his prime, he would have wiped the floors in his mansion with the likes of Jiri Vesely. I was shocked to see that Tommy's last win was in May 2014. He defeated Stam Wawrinka. Tommy has had more injuries than a test pilot in the era of Fred Flintstone. The poor guy must be super glued together by now. In any event, Tommy has my respect and always will. He is a battler and has an iron will to win. Besides all of my compliments for Tommy, he had one of the prettiest backhands I have ever witnessed in my life. Out of sheer respect, I am going with Tommy to win this match and start perhaps the last hurrah of his remarkable professional tennis career.

    Wow the consensus of the participating TI members for this match are definitely going with Thiem and staying as far away from the ATP's beloved clown. I feel like going to the circus today. Although I find clowns to be creepy, I do not feel that way about Monfils. I have to admit that at times, Monfils has made me so mad with a lack luster performance, that it felt like he personally cleaned out my wallet and smiled the entire time he was doing it.
    Going with Monfils who is on the sorry side of their H2H matches (0-3), seems like it is a risky proposition and it most likely is. However, Monfils thrives on these hard courts and I expect him to frustrate Thiem today in what should be a 3 setter match. I expect Monfils to be the victor today. No clowning around to day Gail.

    This is a sweet opportunity to pickup a nice paycheck by siding with Linette. The Polish gal already defeated Hibino last September. Get this, Linette not only defeated Hibino in their only H2H meeting but she did it in Tokyo at the WTA Premier event. Last September, Linette was ranked #88 in the world and Hibino was ranked # 76.
    Now we have these two battling it out in the semi-finals at the Kuala Lumpur WTA event. Not that it matters, but this event is a mere 5,322 kilometers away from Tokyo. Hence, no home court advantage for Hibino (even though she failed to defeat Linette at home when she played her the first time).
    Although both players rankings have risen since their match last September, Hibino ranking went from #76 to #106 while Linette went from #88 to #93. Clearly Hibino has regressed more than Linette. With this generalized statement that favorites tend to win semi-final matches more often than the underdogs do, I will stick with Linette as the obvious favorite in my opinion. As I have stated before, I am not a fan of taking the favorite but in this case, the favorite looks like a clear cut winner to me.
    Grab Magda and give her a great big old kiss on the lips after she pummels Hibino in a few hours.

    Where did Isner come up with ground strokes on both sides like he has tonight? I have never seen him hit his groundies with as much accuracy and pace. Young is playing an outstanding match as well.

    I like Young in this match too. The only reason I am going to refrain from punting on him is his terrible return of serve. With Isner, if he is having an off serving match, his opponent cannot afford to keep him in the match with poor returns of service. Young has to prove to me that he has improved in that department before I can jump on the bandwagon. I am pulling for Young none the less.

    Call me a fish-eyed fool but I think that Istomin is playing better tennis at the moment. In other words, Istomin's form is better in my opinion; but only by a few centimeters. Istomin is the higher ranked player although that is meaningless for this particular match. Besides losing to Bedene yesterday, Istomin has only lost to Dimitrov in round 16 of the Australian Open and a puzzling loss to Christian Garin at a challenger in Bangkok during the first week in January.. I believe that when you have two players that are fairly equal in talent/skill, and they are playing back to back matches, it is a fairly difficult task for the winner of yesterday's match, to rack up another win just one day later. Normally I would be all over Istomin to win this match and back it up substantially. However, since their form is intensely close (again only my opinion) and their H2H is 1-1, I am still going with Istomin but just a light and polite wager. Good Luck All.

    I feel strongly that Zverev will be one of the top four within the next two years. Zverev has what it takes to be a Grand Slam Champion. Zverev not only has the goods but he is an exceptionally fast learner.
    Zverev lost to Gasquet at the Hoffman Cup back in January. That loss will most likely be Zverev's last loss to Gasquet for the remainder of 2017. I think that Zverev needed one warm-up match with Gasquet to learn from and he got his wish. I look for the first set in this match to be relatively close and then Zverev will take over and dominate in set 2 and if necessary, set 3.
    Gasquet has never really been a player who had a serious chance of winning a Grand Slam. However, Zverev in my opinion will soon become a familiar face in Grand Slam Final matches.

    These two yawners have a H2H favoring 2-1, Zeballos won two of their matches on clay. Melzer's lone win was on a hard court.
    It is simply my opinion that Zeb is playing better tennis.
    At the Australian Open, Metzler lost in a 5 setter and in the opening round as to Alex De Minaur who was ranked 331 in the world. Zeballos lost in the opening round at the AO to Karlovic ranked 20 in the world. Zeballos played a very respectable match against a player who was serving up bbs to hit. Zeb lost in the 5th set 22-20. Zeballos also had matches just prior to the AO against Jim Vesely and Novak Djokovic. I like going with a player who recently has battled tougher competition and then faces a player who is sort of a middle of the road player (although there are certainly hundreds and hundreds of players ranked below Melzer).
    Zeb for me but I heed caution when opening your wallet for this match.
