    Ever got double bageled?

    Having never played you, I can tell when I'm getting a charity game, and I don't like it. I even had a guy report the score as 6-1, 6-1 after double-bageling me, which REALLY set me off. Just play me straight-up, and if you smoke me, you smoke me. I won't like it, but I'll live.

    Hows the quarantine treating you

    Haven't played since last June, but I've been working on my fitness since then and dropped 20 pounds. I plan on getting back on the court in April at least another 10 pounds lighter.

    More satisfied

    I realize I may come across as a jerk, but I would rather do the former, because that means I kept my focus the whole match and didn't stoop to my opponent's level, which is one of my biggest problems on the court.

    What's to old to play tennis?

    That's not the least bit funny. I'm 55 now, and I plan on playing as long as my body allows me to.

    Classy Apology from Novak - USO 2020

    He turned tail and ran like a coward. You make a mess, you clean it up where you made it.

    Classy Apology from Novak - USO 2020

    Punk move doing it on social media. He should have apologized to all parties in person, like a 17-year-old Denis Shapovalov did three years ago. Novak still has some growing up to do.

    A player born in the 90s guaranteed to win a Slam for the first time ever

    It would be poetic justice if Auger-Alliasime were to win.

    We Do Not Blame The Djoker For Not Attending Post Match Interview.

    Why are you referring to yourself as "we?" instead of owning up to what he did, Novak turned tail and ran. That was a punk move, pure and simple.

    Djokovic disqualified from the US Open for hitting a lines woman in the throat.

    It's called "facing responsibility for your actions." It's what adults do.

    Djokovic disqualified from the US Open for hitting a lines woman in the throat.

    In other words, he literally flew halfway around the world for nothing.
