I like both players,, Djokovic has the edge unless Del Potro can unleash his forehand like a sledge hammer hitting the t-ball.

Well after defeating Luke Skywalker, it is time for Earth's Mightiest Warrior to defeat Chewbacca
Thinking Del Potro is more of a Robert Baratheon. Giant of a man who slays left an right with the hammer. A man made for war.

Novak Djokovic is Jaime Lannister, the underappreciated hero who's writing turned to sh*te.

Djokovic in straights. This matchup is too predictable. Djokovic beating Del Potro in 2017 (his worst season) three times out of three tells us everything we need to know.

There is no comparison between my favourite Got character and one of my least favourite players.
Novak never f....d his sister as your favourite character did... so you are right...


Kidding, Jamie is cool guy except if he do something bad in this season... I am waiting all episodes to be broadcasted to watch in one breath...

Novak in straights all the way to the title. Delpo/Schwartzmann/Tsitsipas or Nadal - - none of these players can take a set off him.

Writing is worse than the 2009 Wimbledon final.

It's made me sick to my stomach. Every plotline, every character arc, every mystery, 6 years of investment for me, all gone to waste.
I think the show got bad in general when they deviated from the books (i guess after season 4).
But season 8 was especially pathetic. I mean even a kid could write a better script. Somethings were so nonsensical - they defied belief.
As bad as 2009 Wimbledon final was, it is still so much better than GOT - haha.

2009 Wimbledon was at least a believable ending, even though it was 200% gut wrenchingly bitter with no redeemable quality in the result.

Not every child actor is going to grow up and become a Sophie Turner.
It's the character, I don't blame the actor at all. Skip all his PoVs in the books on rereads too.

Not that I rate Sophie Turner or Sansa's character highly.

I like his chapters so I guess ymmv. I don't like the Sansa chapters as much and I loath the character, but it's clear they expanded her role bc she can move her facial muscles occasionally

Jaime Lannister ended up being nothing , he went back to being what he was in s1 ep 1 without even a hint of explanation.

My favorite part is that she's smart cause she gives suggestion every idiot can think of and other characters then point out how incredibly smart she's gotten.

Eloquent,
I never watched it. Despite hearing there was a lot of gratuitous sex in it (the
best kind) I could never be roused. I figured it wasn't true to life in that it seemed
to replicate the dark ages or something and people stunk back then. Sex was
something to get through and not to enjoy. I was skeptical of it for that reason.

It's criminal.

He's still Azor Ahai in the books in my book
He may not be that but at least he can be the Valonquar .

Hold that thought , why did the show even mention Cersei's sibling prophecy which never came true ? Of course each of the other parts of the prophecy referring to her children and husband came true.

D&D never watched their own show.
