    Djokovic has got this unless Nadal finds a second wind from somewhere.

    RG 2021 SF: Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic

    If Nadal breaks then he serves first in the second set.

    RG 2021 SF: Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic

    I seem to recall Goran saying a semi-final match would help Novak. So far that's not the case.

    2021 Roland Garros - Men's Singles SF - Stefanos Tsitsipas (5) vs Alexander Zverev (6)

    For yet another slam I'll be more interested in the womans final than the mens.

    2021 Roland Garros - Men's Singles SF - Stefanos Tsitsipas (5) vs Alexander Zverev (6)

    Tsitsipas all emotional --> will be totally destroyed in the final if people didn't already think that.

    2021 Roland Garros - Men's Singles SF - Stefanos Tsitsipas (5) vs Alexander Zverev (6)

    My match short match report so far : The first 2 sets Zverev was on the other side of the court, then in sets 3 and 4 Tsitsipas was present on the other side of the court. Now we're in a 5th set and I'm feeling none of the tension I should be feeling watching a match going 5.

    2021 Roland Garros - Men's Singles SF - Stefanos Tsitsipas (5) vs Alexander Zverev (6)

    Right then a 4th set. Let's hope Tsitsipas runs away with it in say 30 minutes so the organisers and Nadal-Djokovic have sufficient notification and preparation time to start the 2nd sem-final at the earliest possible scheduled start time of 5.30 pm Paris time.

    2021 Roland Garros - Men's Singles SF - Stefanos Tsitsipas (5) vs Alexander Zverev (6)

    People who say that to you are not making informed opinions. In the pre match commentary it was said Zverev has one of the lowest percentages in the atp top 100 for points won on the second serve. I looked it up, he ranks 75th on the list. For a player who is listed officially as 6ft 6"...

    2021 French Open - Ladies Discussion

    When I saw how effective they were against Sakkari late in the final set I thought Krejcikova would hit more of them.

    2021 French Open - Ladies Discussion

    I'm glad Krejcikova won although she tried her best to lose the match with all those unforced errors on her ground strokes. All that shouting between points by Sakkari and the constant questioning of line calls was getting on my nerves.

    The TT Football Club

    That was incredible. Villareal's population is about 50,000. Manchester's is more than half a million and far more fans, bigger stadium, much higher revenue, a far more expensive squad and they lost.

    Will Thiem's victory be remembered like the Kodeš Wimbledon win?

    Goran once said in a press interview he didn't know who Laver was so there's not much unusual about any player being forgotten in the future.

    Will Thiem's victory be remembered like the Kodeš Wimbledon win?

    The USO showed strong leadership by risking viewing figures by enforcing the rules against a top player. Everyone who believes in fairness should salute them for not bending over for the rich and powerful.

    US Open 2020 final - Dominic Thiem[2] vs Alexander Zverev [5]

    In Thiem's 3 other slam finals he was expected to lose, Nadal twice and Djokovic. For this final against Zverev he is expected to win.

    US Open 2020 final - Dominic Thiem[2] vs Alexander Zverev [5]

    Why are people saying Thiem is choking? I'm watching some youtube channel where the camera is showing some guy commentating on the match. Two important points have been said so far: 1) Thiem according to the commentator appears to have an injury to the left ankle hampering his movement 2)...

    2020 US Open SF - (5.) Alexander Zverev vs (20.) Pablo Carreño Busta

    If Zverev doesn't break soon the pressure will really increase for him considering I'm readng comments about how poorly he is serving today.

    Margaret Court will remain the woman with most majors

    Serena doesn't have the cardio fitness anymore. She always was sturdy in build but now she's carrying excess weight. In recent slams she's lost to players she more than likely would have beaten fairly easily in her heyday.

    Is Federer the Tyson of tennis?

    Tyson bit Holyfield's ear because the fight wasn't going his way so he lost control. Djokovic thought the match with PCB wasn't going the way he'd hoped so he too lost control and incurred a DQ as per the rules. Hulk a fictitous comic book super hero with poor rage management. I say we rename...

    Medvedev vs Thiem is the biggest matchup after so many years not involving any of the big 3 members.

    That's the intriguing factor with the younger gen. They are slow developers so assuming their H2Hs defines a set pattern should be done with some caution. Also Medvedev was pretty tough in the 5 set slam final loss last year to Nadal. So Medvedev has shown he can play a pretty good match...
