    Now official: Djokovic joins Dimitrov and Coric.

    Well, one small study, which is expected to soon be conducted on a much larger scale, suggests that antibodies formed from having had the virus, may not last more than a few months. In other words, it is possible/likely that having had the virus does not guarantee you long-term immunity

    2020 Australian Open SF: Novak Djokovic [2] vs Roger Federer [3]

    Thing is can Fed hold on so he doesn't have to break his non-retirement record. Suspect if this had been an earlier round of the tournament, he'd have given a walkover

    Laver Cup

    I'll never understand for the life of me why people who think the whole thing is scripted/faked/pre-written -- why they bother to watch. Just to make the kind of sarky comments they hope will spoil it for the rest of us? <sigh>

    "It does not seem right that Wimbledon is the only tournament to have it's own seed criteria" - Rafael Nadal

    They'll change it just as soon as grass has 3 warmup Masters like clay has... or as many warm-up masters as hard has, so players can get their ATP rankings up in time for the grass slam - same as for the clay and hard court slams

    2019 ATP 500 Halle Final - [1.] Roger Federer vs. David Goffin

    I hear he's looking for Rafa. Oh wait, he'd be looking yards BEHIND the baseline :p

    Neutralize Big Servers: Make tiebreakers single-serve, speed-limited, kick serve only?

    Slippery slope here. Who next? Runners of Usain Bolt's height with his long legs will no longer be able to do track and field, because of some purported "unfair" advantage. Solution, I suppose, would be to cut off his legs :p

    2019 Miami Final: Federer [4] vs Isner [7]

    You're accusing him of something he didn't say; to the contrary, he was quick to point out that it wouldn't have made any difference to the outcome if he hadn't suffered the injury. Maybe you're projecting a tad?

    Miami Masters 2019 QF :- Kevin Anderson (6) versus Roger Federer (4)

    looking at one schedule, Tiafoe/Shapo match rescheduled for 6 pm and Fed's for 7.30. If that's right it means Tiafoe is playing on the 2nd court so the main court match can go ahead on time pretty much - heh, which would be much to @AndyM's chagrin

    2019 Miami - ATP Masters 1000 - General Discussion

    He told you that personally? Or that is your thousand-miles away interpretation?

    I have a feeling that any time he used it would be bad for you - lol

    2019 Miami - ATP Masters 1000 - General Discussion

    Why should Dusan get aggressive with Kyrgios? It's not as if the underarm serve is disallowed or against the rules. Heavens, Chang won a Grand Slam serving an underarm serve, IIRC, the last ball. You're going to fine a man for playing according to the rules now? What else are you going to...

    Federer vs Nadal semi-final Indian Wells 2019!

    And who exactly would be the lucky loser - since Khachanov probably left on a flight home or to his next tournament within hours of losing? Most losers do leave the tournament site immediately, so unless the injured winner announces withdrawal within an hour or so of the match, you'll have to...
