Don’t mind what Wimby have done by having a normal one at 12-12.

Not a fan of this at all


#5646

Its a wise decision. Once a fifth set goes past 10 all its nearly always a soft victory for the Winners next opppnent.


#5647

It’s not the 5th set that won’t go past 10 all, it’s the fifth set tie-break, which is played at 6 games all.


#5648

Loved the marathon matches. They have ruined it.

Def shouldn’t play the final with a tie breaker.


#5649

reread my post.


#5650

Oh I see what you mean. I thought you were confusing 10 games with 10 point tie-breakers, but selecting 10 games all was just a coincidence.


#5651

I waited for Federer till 12.30 am at flushing meadows one year. The game before was the wemons which went to massive tie breaker to injury etc.
It was worth it just to say I’ve seen Federer play.
Incredible.


#5652

Awesome :ok_hand:

And I think the late nights it’s part of the tradition. Tests body and mind.

I think it’s a shocking decision to lose the advantage set in the decider.


#5653

Federer treating a poor brit with contempt. He’ll go deep into the Aus Open again. No question.

@diggers’ tennis wet dream has come true


#5655

Oh my…

Was there to see it live.

Oh my…


#5656

Serena’s juggernauts are so big they must be getting in the way.

Oh my…


#5657

At any stage, did you contemplate an emulation of Peter H*re, Diggers? :grin:


#5658

Our seats were so far back that a court invasion would have been impractical.

This may be from before your time @JohnRain but we have a way of measuring how keen an individual is to put a fantasy into action should the opportunity present.

Gruelling three setter + doubles encounter, no shower required, in the car park.

That’s the highest ranking there is

You don’t need to take a shower, Serena, I know what I’m doing…

Oh my…


#5659

It sounds as if she has already received a good ‘Rogering’, Digs. :wink:


#5660

Oh my…


#5661

I’d like to give B Bencic some ‘encouragement’ in the locker room, too just quietly.


#5662

Yeah wow not creepy at all


#5663

Classy.


#5664

You’re all welcome.
