Yup, I can't see Djoko winning RG 2021 if Nadal is healthy. Djoko does very well at AO because it's fast and he likes it that way. Nadal is the opposite and likes RG because it's slow and bouncy. Each surface compliments their game perfectly. Djoko does very well at AO, but Nadal does extremely...
I don't think Osaka considers herself Asian. I think she identifies as black. Japanese is only her nationality, but racially she seems to identify more as being black. Kind of like Tiger Woods. I've never heard him talk about his Asian side.
If there was any player who could give Djokovid a run for his money it would be Medvedev. Even if Nadal would have gotten through Tsits and Med, he ultimately would have lost to Djoko. This is like Darth Vader vs Darth Maul.
That's true. If you look at any of the official WTA photos of the players, they don't look like themselves IRL (no makeup). Only player that I notice wears makeup on the court is Serena. Osaka doesn't even look like Osaka.
Tennis used to be a gentleman's game and no underarm serving is an unspoken rule. Times have changed. Can Wimbledon ban that shot for their tournament? I can't see that shot being seen as more distasteful than at the WC.
I was playing tennis once during a hot summer and noticed a man with a dark jacket on playing a few courts down from me and I thought it was weird because it was so hot that day. When I took a closer look, only did I notice that it wasn't a jacket he was wearing, he was actually shirtless.
