Count the blessings

There has been enough negativity in 2020 already. Let's count some blessings in men's tennis.

1. It is happening. The tournaments allow many people to pay their bills. And we can watch high-level tennis again.
2. No player has been seriously affected by Covid-19.
3. Nadal has a chance to tie Federer for the most GS titles in RG, although he missed another in New York. But he deserves a lot of respect for being cautious. And likely a new record for RG titles.
4. Novak has a shot at completing double career grand slam in RG, following a double career masters slam in Cincy (NY).
5. Either Novak or Nadal will tie Sampras for the most YE#1, if there is a YE#1 in 2020.
6. We finally have a new GS champion in Thiem, since 2014? And the youngest active GS winner at 27.
7. Nadal could win WTF to further complete and strengthen his resume, while Novak could tie Federer for the most WTF titles.

You missed the biggest blessing of them all.

The TTW gang hanging out and kicking major booty in the pro-match threads. I had a blast in some of them, nothing better than watching a match with the TTW gang.

Yup, the match threads are some of, if not the best parts of TTW. My current avatar was born there.

8. Novak showed us how great his precision is.
9. I managed to gain trust from some Fed fans.
10. The Spencer stuff still didn't get us in trouble.
11. I'm glad that some posters here are epic.

How dare you exclude anything good about Federer from your blessings? Don't you know that Fed fans have feelings?

8. Hawk Eye Live has shown that fat line judges can be gotten rid of.
9. Crowds have been proven to be a liability - matches move through much quicker (no waiting for a fat guy with popcorn to meander in after a changeover). A commentator even said that the players are hearing the sound of the ball better without a crowd.

12. I have increased respect for some awesome Novak fans. (To the point where I could even somehow manage to wonder if I might even possibly even a little tiny bit become a Novak fan... some day.)
