Asian Swing

Any storylines you'll be following in the Asian swing? Any predictions? There's a lot of Big 3 ball fanning, which I totally get, but surely there are other things to discuss.

I'll make a prediction. Both of the final 2 masters will be won by someone under 30.

Who really pays attention to Asian Swing.

I won't be surprised if the Big Three call it a season.

Nobody cares about the Asian swing or the Laver Cup. It means nothing in the grand scheme of things. The WTF is the only tournament left that has a little meaning.

Let's see if Nadal will play anything post October. I can bet he'll pull out of Paris/WTF claiming he'll be resting for the Davis Cup.

Once the US Open is over, the season is basically over.

The WTF is an amazing tournament. It takes only the best players and you can’t benefit from any cream puff draws which is why Nadal has failed to win it. You have to actually beat all of the top guys to win it.

At this point he should just rest up until Australia. Save his knees and enjoy winning 19.
That is such a good way to promote the sport, right? Tell that to ticket holders that buy tickets months in advance to see their favorite players in other countries.

Yes but in the scheme of his legacy-building does it really matter. To me, he just needs to prepare his schedule around the grandslams and less on the tournaments.

I don't mind if the Big Three take off until Australia (although I doubt Djokovic will). Still, there's still tennis to be played. I enjoy it no matter the draws.

It’s depressing and meaningless when you have bums like Jack Sock and Khachanov winning these tournaments.
