    Maybe Rafa’s dad thinks Novak should also quit and let Rafa rule the roost. :D

    Are you seeing US Open and French Open happening in August and September respectively? For me it is very unlikely.

    I can't see anything happening with crowds for a good while. Tennis itself could be managed in some way as the players/umpires etc don't need to get too close to each other when playing.

    How are tennis players and ball boys supposed to handle the same balls? It can't be "new balls please" between every point.

    He 100% did. Unless his shoulder was actually bad, there was no one beating him at this tournament. It's just madness.

    Serena is the goat. It's like trying to stop a train at times.

    I was just thinking what if somehow Novak falls one short of the grandslam record by the end of his career. This unnecessary throwing away of his US Open chances will seem even more silly.

    Thiem fighting back after Zverev dominates the early part of the match. It's in the 4th set now with Zverev 2-1 up on sets.

    Hales is on the verge of going out to teenager Swiatek. It’s 1-6 1-4 so far!

    Djokovic beats Tsitsipas in 5 sets to make it to the final too. Nadal will face Djok for the 56th time (apparently the most that 2 players have ever faced each other), and for the 9th time in a final. I’ll be cheering on Nadal!

    Anyone watching the final? Nadal has just gone 4-0 up against Djok in the first game.

    Poor Djokovic. He plays not bad but Nadal plays perfect.

    Nadal wins the French Open final in straight sets against Djokovivc. His all time reputation on clay extends that much further.

    The French is really keeping Nadal in the race to
    finish top. He looked in good shape today and is probably capable of winning more. Djok is going to be hard to stop overall though.
