    Djokovic hits line judge in the shoulder, NOT the throat, US open 2020

    Doesn't matter if it was intentional or not. Shapavalov wasn't intentional either. It should be a 6 month suspension, but that won't happen.

    Medvedev, Rafa and even Federer lose their first matches at WTF. Is it time to dump this hyped-bloated pseudo-championship?

    For the amount of money and points they are playing for, this is hardly an exhibition. Anyone who thinks so does't know how much these players want it or they have never played in a money tournament before.

    2019 Basel Final - (1.) Roger Federer vs. (WC) Alex de Minaur

    Just the fact the ADM had to go three sets with Opelka, instead of winning in straights, leads me to believe an easy win for Fed. Not because ADM is tired, it's because it took 3 sets to beat Opelka, you have to be able to beat lower ranked players easily to beat a top 3 player.... Fed can beat...

    Wimbledon courts haven’t changed recently and slower grass is more fun to watch

    There hasn't been perfectly normal grass since they slowed it down in the 90's.

    Calling 'let' prematurely, and calling 'let' if a ball rolls on opponents side of court

    Let 2: Any ball on a court, your side or opponents side, would be considered a distraction, so a let can be called. If the let ball on his side of the court fell out of his pocket, it is your point immediately.

    Is anyone else a wee bit worried about Fed today?

    He waited until halfway through the third set to get confidence in his backhand. Albot basically tried to do the same thing that Thiem did to Fed at Indian Wells, but didn't have the goods at the end. Fed finally started going down the line aggressively with his backhand at 4-3 in the 3rd, did...

    What ATP players would be better if they had grown up learning 1HBH.

    I hope they ban the 2 hander, since only a player who isn't strong enough to hit a one hander uses it.
