If the up and coming young guns of tennis keep producing mixed results like Tsitsipas did yesterday in Austria,we have to wait a long time for one of them to depose the big 3. The Greek battled well to edge the first set. From there it was downhill with his first serve letting him down allowing Dimitrov to take the win in 3 sets. Home town favorite Dominic Thiem eased past Garin of Chile in straight sets.
Conspicuous by their absence are the American players. Clearly the American game is dying with no players making the last 16. This problem may well be traced to how the sport is perceived by male youngsters at grassroots level. College students may nowadays be more inclined to try sports like baseball, basketball and football which get more rave reviews in media as well as by parents. Just saying🤷.
