  1. So much talk about the mosquitos. I don't doubt it bothered Nepo, but whether it really bothered him enough to lose the match yesterday is anyone's conjecture. Personally, I don't think so. Regardless, a player who's a true sport should be gracious in defeat and not make excuses, even if the excuse is valid, unless it was his opponent's fault. And the hosts shouldn't have given too much credibility to the excuse by constantly talking about it. Divine intervention? C'mon.

    Nepo lost again in today's match. What's the excuse this time?

  2. David is the star, but it is the team dynamic that reallt works. Thw two girls are dying a Great Job also.

  3. I was honestly a little bit worried when Wesley took a quick draw with the White pieces on game 2, playing as White means that the arena is all yours but I haven't see Wesleys opening threats/preparation, should be interesting to see tommorow against Magnus for the first time. On the other hand, his defence is just absolutely accurate, that last game with Nepo is just brutal seeing Wesley immediately neglect any counter attack idea that Nepo tries after a blunder. Great performance for Wesley so far playing a solid defense and punishing any mistake from the opponent as brutal as possible.
