The Tennis thread


#5725

Got Margaret Court Arena for day 2.


#5726

Channel 7 got the cricket
Channel 9 got the tennis.

With the way the cricket is going, I reckon channel 9 has come out on top


#5727

Dunno, but hope so, so sickly sweet when she speaks.


#5728

Didn’t know channel 9 got the tennis.

I learn something new everyday on Blitz. :grinning:


#5729

Will get a day pass for day 1 and 2 and wonder around looking for the upset result.


#5730

So Kyrgios and Tomic should be gone after the first round.


#5731

Did that last year and loved it. This year figured I’ll take my chances on MGA, hopefully at least one good match


#5732

Kokkinakis (32nd Q seed) beats Polansky (4th Q seed) to make it to the main draw 6-4 6-4


#5733

This actually makes a lot of sense to me.

Stems from the Australian culture of tall poppy syndrome.


#5734

Andy Murray announces he will retire after Wimbledon.
I have my doubts he’ll even last that long.


#5735

So does he


#5736

Feel pretty sorry for Murray. Tried his best and was a top 5 tennis player at his peak. Injury cut at least 5 productive years out.


#5737

Sure he’ll be ok.


#5738

Money wise yeah… Emotionally I reckon it’d be pretty crippling for a good while.


#5739

any other era and murray is the best player in that period. Just so happened to be up against the three greatest male players in history.


#5740

What? better than Borg, McEnroe, Sampras!


#5741

yes


#5742

Ridiculous. Love to see Murray against Borg and McEnroe with a little wooden racket.


#5743

And without the elite training environments they have today.

Difficult to compare across generations.


#5744

Sorry Barnz Sampras was an absolute gem. Would beat Murray and find plenty of quarters in doing so.
