The Tennis thread

Tsitsipas can win it if he plays like he played against Federer. Has to be super aggressive. If he relents Nadal will roll him. It’s a massove ask but not impossible


#6527

Your expectations could be out of whack of course. Like they were when De Minaur played Nadal. :grinning:.

I’d love Tsitsipas to beat him or at least push him. It’s looking bad though. I think it will be straight sets


#6528

Rafa looks in amazing nick so far


#6529

Yep, Nadal is looking unbeatable at the moment.

If you haven’t worked it out I’m not a Nadal fan.


#6530

Neither am I - was going to use some less than appropriate language to describe him…


#6531

Tsitsipas is doing better than expected but doesn’t look like making inroads on Nadal serve.


#6532

I’m not either


#6533

I like Djoker even less.

And don’t get me started on Raonic.


#6534

i don’t like the type of tennis your raonic types bring.

betting it all on your serve


#6535

He just bores me to farking tears.


#6536

I hate Djoker too but if it’s final between him and Nadal - it’s Djoker every time. Agree about Raonic - add Cilic and Berdych in there too. Fark I just realised not many tennis players I do like.


#6537

Give me Kyrgios every day of the week


#6538

if the greek can bring back 1handed backhands hes done tennis a service.


#6539

Nice save from Tsitsipas there. Three break points saved.


#6540

Needs to hit that at the start of the game and not when he’s 40 love down.


#6541

Sigh. Another easy service game for Nadal.


#6542

The best thing about watching Nadal play, is that you’ve got time to take a slash while he gets ready to serve.


#6543

This Greek boy has talent but not in the same league as Rafa and my boy Novak.


#6544

Ridiculously good first serve % from Tsitsipas; fear he may get a bagel in this set.


#6545

This is an absolute joy to watch.
Don’t think he can match Novak but who knows
