The Tennis thread

Huh? The ever annoying Nadal in a non contest.

You like watching that?


#6547

Cmon break that prick.


#6548

I’m a massive Rafa fan boi so yes it’s a joy to watch. He has his annoying traits I do admit but he does things on the court that you just think isn’t possible. Absolute freak


#6549

Ok. Boring as hell for the rest of us not getting half chubbed though. :wink:


#6550

Fark Rafa and the horse he rode in on.


#6551

Go Djoker is all that is left to say…


#6552

McEnroe straight up hitting on Rafa.


#6553

Osaka is still “alive” in the tournament and the Williams’ aren’t. All is well.


#6554

It’s very nice here.


#6555

We saw N Osaka represent Japan against Switzerland at the 2018 Hopman Cup and I’ll
be honest in saying I thought Osaka could make the top 50, possibly even the top 30 one day. Her success since then has been very unexpected.


#6556

Her ascension to the upper echelon of players has been a pleasure to watch. Would enjoy seeing her take out her second slam.


#6557

Agree with Diggers about Osaka. Though she could reach top 20 if she played a more controlled game. Predicting the future in sport is a tricky business


#6558

Even if just for the post-match on-court interview - she’s hilarious in her honest and simplistic responses.


#6559

Very sweet, humble & with a nice amount of Japanese quirkiness.


#6560

Speaking of Japanese girls, we went to the Issey Miyake store in Maranouchi yesterday and I have to give credit to M Miyake as the girls he had working there were drop dead gorgeous.


#6561

In the form he’s in, I expect him to dominate Djokovic.


#6562

Rafa’s longest match of the tournament so far was against De Minaur. So De Minaur’s performance might be better than it looks.


#6563

I think he’ll be favourite to win, but I can’t see anyone dominating Djokovic. He won’t be shell shocked like some of Rafa’s opponents have been and he’ll find a way to get into points


#6564

Another yawn fest tonight.


#6565

The way Djokovic is dominating tonight, I might re-assess! :open_mouth:
