Isner had a pretty good five setter earlier. But get tired of the Williams sisters 25/7

Welp, New Yorkers from a couple of the boroughs always sound very nasally, especially the Bronx.

So if you had a pair of Chuck Taylors and one of Stan Smiths you're ready for anything? Or do you even need both?

I can't imagine how boring someone's life has to be in order to watch 1st round of a tennis tournament. LOL

Let me know when they are down to round of 16 and I may watch a set or two.

Rafa/Thiem was an amazing match last night (I had to record it, and glad I did. I watched the ending this morning as it went almost 5 hours ending after 2am) 4th and 5th set went to tiebreakers.
Rafa was taking serves as deep as he possibly could, lost the 1st set 6-0 and clawed his way back to the win. Luckily he gets 2 days rest before the semi

Watched Serena Williams come from down 2-4 to Plislova to win and the first 2 sets of the Nadal match.

When women are clocking 108 and 109 mph on first serves and the men at at 128 I know the game has passed me by awhile ago.

I played with a friend who played for IU in the 70’s. He was in his late 40’s and still getting 95-100 on his serves Returns were a lot of guessing. But he was a great doubles partner.

Great fucking match. Thiem definitely had his chances.

So I guess Serena lost the final and was assessed a point and game penalty as well. For coaching apparently. She flipped out demanded an apology said she was being treated unfairly and called the chair ump a liar.

Couldn't agree more. Watched it go down. Her coach admitted he was coaching her when the chair gave to code violation. Said we all do it. It's just never called. Thought her invoking her daughter and saying she was being penalized because she was a woman was pretty weak.

Just saw the exchanges. Where the fuck did the women's rights thing come from? Why she mentioned her daughter is equally puzzling.

Was a Serena fan before. She lost me.

She doubled down in women's rights defense in the presser. She thinks the men can say and do worse and get away with it

Serena will be a hero in the social media world because she played the sexist card. Unfortuantely she couldn't play the race card against the Hispanic umpire and first Japanese-born woman to win the US Open.

Yes. Very bizzare. The chair probably could have explained that I'm not calling you a cheater. You're being penalized for what your coach did. Read the rules Serena. Her continuously demanding an apology was juvenile. She created a strawman. And for her to insinuate that she didn't cheat (coaching from the stands) is ludicrous. You're own coach just admitted he does it all the time.

Watched a clip of Serena this morning. All I saw was a McCenroe level meltdown. He was punished for his as well in game but also rewarded for them because they became iconic. I sort of see her point. Whatever she’s the GOAT at women’s tennis.

Her men vs women angle falls on it's face. I think I read there were 23 code violations issued to the men and 9 to the women this year.

But the same judge issued not the same penalty to Nadal in the French under same or similar circumstances. I think some people are having issues with that. But whatever. Something happened where he became part of the game. Nadal even yelled at him that he would never ump another one of his games.

I'll not argue that tennis players tend to be entitled spoiled brats. I'm trying to think of a sport where a player can tell an official they'll never work a match they're playing in again. I use to love tennis.
