    Why shouldn't he? Would Kyrgios keep his mouth shot? Types like them have no filter.

    Are you talking about Federer/Nadal being the one who was cheated or the one claiming to not know if the ball bounced twice?

    I cannot really imagine Federer or Nadal needing to cheat on a critical point.

    In the case that they felt they were cheated, I can 100% expect that they would raise the issue. Who wouldn't? I doubt anyone would "stay quiet" and nor should they. Do you stay quiet if someone swipes a rook off your board in the allegro? Is this the time to be too deferential to speak? Let's not forget: Thompson argued his case. Nothing more.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Djokovic just 2 wins away from achieving the Grand Slam - something not achieved by Federed, Nadal, or anyone since Rod Laver in 1969. First he has to get through Zverev.

    I hope Djokovic loses but it is unlikely.

    The good news is - Medvedev held his nerve...

    Yes went down in straight sets.

    Aussies Sam Stosur and Dylan Alcott both won, in women's doubles and men's quad singles respectively.

    Particularly impressive given that she first became number one in doubles in 2006. Also, she became a father last year. It should be noted that many of the leading tennis players appear to be doing a good job combining family with kids with playing competitively: Nadal, Djoikovic, Federer, Serena etc.

    I'm not sure if you're trying to be funny, or are just homophobic. In either case it's far from appropriate
