    2019 Indian Wells F - [4] Federer vs [7] Thiem

    It's like I'm watching 2nd round Fed - doesn't seem super engaged

    Bianca Andreescu: under the radar but not for long!

    Holy crap - great quality. Thanks! What's the catch - how is this page able to get away with streaming near HD quality and NOT be banned?

    2019 Australian Open Men’s Singles Final (1) Novak Djokovic V (2) Rafael Nadal

    Ended the way it started: with a crappy error by Rafa. I don't think I've ever seen Nadal dominated like this in a GS final.

    2019 Australian Open Men’s Singles Final (1) Novak Djokovic V (2) Rafael Nadal

    Is anyone else here having to put up with a feed that has a smaller main camera and a camera on each player? It's incredibly distracting, and frankly why would anyone be paying attention to the player cameras? They wouldn't be able to see the rallies...

    2019 Australian Open Men’s Singles Final (1) Novak Djokovic V (2) Rafael Nadal

    Very very weird match by Nadal so far - props to Novak for absolutely GOATING and putting on the pressure but Nadal not very sharp off the ground today.

    2019 Australian Open 3R - [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [25] Denis Shapovalov

    Shapovalov is a really odd player in an interesting kind of way. His game is almost a blend of Nadal and Wawrinka: Big hitting off both wings and long backswing, but also gets into his rhythm during long rallies and feeds off the energy of the crowd like Nadal.

    Australian Open 2019 3R: (3) Roger Federer vs Taylor Fritz

    Lol based on what? He arguably has the same movement and BH skills as Raonic did at his age, but nowhere near comparable success at this point in their respective careers. Even at 21 Milos was a established top 25 player and had titles under his belt.

    Australian Open 2019 3R: (3) Roger Federer vs Taylor Fritz

    Does anyone notice how similarly Fritz's game is to Raonic's? He even kind of looks like him too

    Murray To Retire At Wimbledon

    You mean when Roger went out the way to play Rotterdam just to get the #1 for a few weeks, only to lose it after crashing out in stunning fashion in IW and Miami and then going on to play injury-ridden for the next six months in 2018? No... definitely not Roger

    How big is todays final for Djokovic?

    Big - it means that, like others mentioned, Rafa is now under the gun to win more slams from both fronts (Fed and Djok) and now has to go back and fend off a competitor whose more likely to win slams on ALL surfaces than he is.

    Serena Williams

    Long story short, like a lot of previous posters mentioned I think it's BOTH parties' fault, but mostly Serena. Serena, I think bears most of the blame for this entire episode (65-35). She just couldn't let the coaching call go, despite her coach later admitting that he was giving her coaching...

    Serena Williams

    I don't think the infamous Roddick meltdown at AO in 2008 I believe resulted in a code violation; could be wrong so if anyone knows happy to be corrected

    USO 2018 R4: [2] Federer vs Millman

    Jeebus Millman is getting so many chances with fed rolling balls in, but is doing nothing with em.
