We were stricken with another episode of “Morning Sickness” on Monday, as our hitter, Karen Khachanov, lost 7-5, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (6) to Philipp Kohlschreiber. KK blew a 5-2 lead in the first set (squandering a set point on Kohlschreiber’s serve for 6-2), and then, most impressively, at 6-all in the final tiebreaker, bungled a SITTING FOREHAND, which clipped off the tape and hung up for him, pretty much deciding the match.

 

Had he hit it anywhere INSIDE THE LINES of the court, he probably would’ve won the match. But I guess it just wasn’t in the cards for us. And, with that, we shake it off and look ahead to more tennis from Rome on Tuesday morning.
