    Tsitsipas achieved something very rare by coming back from 2 sets down to defeat Nadal, only the second to do so from over 200 matches where Nadal lead 2-0.

    Nadal showed a lot of class but not blaming his defeat on lockdown or injuries etc. Unlike some others.

    Nadal all class after Open defeat, rejects Djokovicís complaints
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    And I doubt Djoikovic is seriously injured...and I almost everyone doubts it.

    And she comprehensively knocked out Serena (my favourite player along with her sister Venus).

    Yes Osaka just too good. Her acceptance speech was kind of funny - she asked if Brady preferred to be called Jenny or Jennifer, got the reply Jenny, and proceded to call her Jennifer.

    After sets 1 &2, things are not looking good for Medvedev. Not good at all!

    Popygin won his maiden tournament in Singapore. Hopefully, he will keep on improving.

    Sorry to say he will probably lose the Slam record of 20.He is 40 in August so how much longer can he play? Rafa is 35 and Novak 34.Novak has 18 Slams and might pass them both.

    Serena is 39 and also battling to get into finals. I doubted she could equal Margaret Court but this could be her best chance for awhile. But clay somehow ignites her Achilles Heel
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    @ Metro

    Yep, Nole has every chance to pass Federer.

    @ AC

    I don't think Serena will win more titles ...
