    Us Open 2020, 1/2 Final: Serena Williams(3) vs Victoria Azarenka

    Tennis radio announcers are rather perplexed as to what this ankle issue really is.

    FS - 4x Becker Delta Core Londons

    Hi gang - Rotator cuff surgeries ended my playing days. Selling all four of my Becker Delta Core Londons and related supplies in a package deal. All four have 5/8 grips and 98 inch heads. Frame 1 Condition (x out of 10): 9.5. Yes, this one deserves the nice rating. *Specific Time Used (must...

    2020 Australian Open QF :- [7] Alexander Zverev vs [15] Stanislas Wawrinka

    He likely booked his flight out during the changeover. Probably my favorite player but this effort in the set is not particularly endearing.

    2020 Australian Open QF :- [7] Alexander Zverev vs [15] Stanislas Wawrinka

    Well this certainly has become a **** show by Stan. Terrible movement. Didn’t think Z could bring as much game as Med but that serve is on.

    Stan is going to drop an F bomb by a linesman too.

    Your routine ESPN coverage gripe thread

    Sling TV has ESPN 3. Totally different announcing crew. Tonight, they had Daniela H and Sam Stosur. Really great and not the usual crew of sycophants.

    2020 Australian Open QF :- [7] Alexander Zverev vs [15] Stanislas Wawrinka

    A good pummeling in this first set might be enough to put the doubts in Z’s mind. Then again, I thought this after set 1 with Med. Keep your foot on the gas (and Z’s neck) Stanimal!

    Del Potro 2020 - Comeback or Retirement?

    I think retire. Believe he’s 121st in rankings. That’s going to result in him facing really tough players right away and it’s going to be too much. He fought the good fight as long as he could and he was great to watch.

    AO’20 4R Men’s Singles: (3) R Federer (SUI) vs Márton Fucsovics

    Picking Fed in 4. I think he’s not going to be in good form during first 2 sets after this last physical match and that level will result in dropping one. Hopefully last two sets go easy. He needs to get through this without it becoming a slogfest to have any remaining hope for the tournament.

    Seriously. I’m so glad I have ESPN3 because that has some local announcing crew. I can’t stand the sycophants on the main ESPN channel.

    Paul is playing aggressively and Grigor is doing a lot of wasteful running around. His shots really aren’t hurting Paul enough.

    Stan is playing and I’m stuck with a Duckworth match on ESPN3. Life isn’t fair.

    Why was Lendl not more popular in the U.S?

    Big fan of Lendl and he’s why I got into tennis in the 1980s. Used to like Connors until he pulled his usual crap with the crowd against Lendl in that final and that was it for me. The SI article you posted was actually pretty flattering. Pretty sure I still have it saved. Also have an...

    2019 US Open QF: (3) Federer vs Dimitrov

    This seems so similar to last year where Fed just got drained. Even if he wins (iffy now), this likely dooms any hope of #21 happening Sunday. Too much energy spent. Makes Stan’s loss even more annoying. So wanted him to get #4 but would have taken Fed #21 as a consolation prize.

    I got home after the quick first set and thought I was going to watch a good pummeling by the Stanimal. At this point, I don’t think I’m going to be seeing a third round.

    Pickleball is spreading

    While I love tennis, I can no longer play because of some pretty severe rotator cuff damage and surgeries. Enter pickleball. I definitely was a skeptical but now absolutely love playing. Admittedly, there can be hacks but the same thing happens in tennis. Just set up your own groups then. I...
