    Sloane Stephens: out of shape and underachieving

    I don't think Sloane Stephens ever had or was ever regarded as having other worldly talent where she'd be racking up numerous Slams and dominating the scene. I don't think she ever had that type of drive. She wasn't that special compared to any other women on the tour. She could make a good run...

    Berdych records that will stand the test of time

    I feel Berdych suffered from slow courts. It wasn't built for his big hitting game. He could wallop some real screamers and the defenders would punt it back.

    Who's the tallest graceful ATP player you can think of?

    Safin was also injured a lot. Seems he never took training that seriously.

    Who's the tallest graceful ATP player you can think of?

    Yeah but those guys are considerably taller than Cilic. It's more challenging for them to move around the court at their height.

    Who's the tallest graceful ATP player you can think of?

    Marin Cilic is athletically gifted at 6'6. He moves around the court really well and very gracefully. Moves like a 6 foot guy.

    Now official: Djokovic joins Dimitrov and Coric.

    I don't think anyone really understands the virus yet. Speaking of, a Texas family celebrated a father's birthday and 18 family members got infected. Now the father is in hospital fighting for his life.

    Now official: Djokovic joins Dimitrov and Coric.

    After hearing news of so many people in WWE getting infected and in the UFC, it's going to be a real gamble for any sport to host an event. I think US Open and the French are taking a big risk.

    Now official: Djokovic joins Dimitrov and Coric.

    I doubt he cares that much. He's shown no symptoms thus far. So to him, the virus and the whole pandemic is still a farce in his view.

    Now official: Djokovic joins Dimitrov and Coric.

    The WWE announcer Kayla Braxton also tested positive for COVID 19. Interestingly, she tested positive back in March as well. So it seems you're not immune if you catch it the first time.

    Tennis without Djokovic......

    Just imagine if Federer, Nadal and Djokovic had never been born? Sampras would still be the Slam leader.

    Tennis without Djokovic......

    All players deal with injuries, not just Nadal. It's not possible to play the way he does without getting injured.

    I believe break will wind up helping Serena win #24 and possibly #25

    Nah. I don't see that. All the other girls hit big too these days. Andreescu, Osaka, etc. Plus they're much younger and faster.

    If Rafa plays, he won't lose a set in the 2020 US Open. Here's why. . .

    They won't be doing that during a real match! :-D They will play their best no matter if there's no crowd. It will be entirely different to a practice session.

    Putting an asterisks next to the 2020 sporting events

    What's Djokovic's record at USO? 3-5 in Finals? 3 titles won over 12 years? Not really domination. I could see a lot of disturbance for the big 2 this year in the form of Stanimal, Thiem, Medvedev, Zverev and numerous others.
