Petra! What a run. Winner of the Final will be the new #1.
Just wanted to stop by and say happy for kvitova. Off to bed. Fly to Dubai tomorrow morning
Well, if you'd said to me before the tournament that the final would be Osaka vs Kvitova, I would have been a pretty happy little clam. So yeah, I'm alright with this.
Rafa opened the clinic early today. When Rafa is on, it is a thing of beauty.
Rafa vs Djokovic final would be awesome
Unbreakable starring Bruce Willis & Rafael Nadal. How are you actually supposed to beat Nadal right now? He's making it look like clay out there.
Gonna be one heck of a final. Can't believe Djokovic is probably going to be the underdog.
I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen Nadal play this well on a hard court. Please, for the love of god beat Djokovic in the final.
wrong on serena thank god, but looks like nadal will take it. Nadal-Djoker 2012 style
Kvitova-Osaka and Nadal-Djokovic would be about as great a duo of Finals as anyone could have hoped for.
I feel like I’m a battered dog at this point with regards to Nadal/Djokovic lol. I really hope you are right. Nadal’s going to have to continue to serve lights out.
Big bump. Good for the sport.
Sigh. Basically what I expected when Pouille made the semis, but still hard to watch at times.
This bloodbath is far worse then yesterday's match. It's not even close. Hyped for Rafa v Djok
This is the struggle for the mens game. A couple upsets early, and the depth that would give you good matches late in the tourney fades away. It's why the women's game is a much better product top to bottom at the moment.
terrible Semi's. Final better be great or this tournament wont be looked at too fondly looking back, especially with all the political BS about the ATP president drama
I’d argue terrible from quarters on.
Hard not to agree with this. I was going to argue that the women's draw had a lot of luck (which they did) with several top players scraping through R1-3, but then I checked out the men's top 20 and it's pretty skinny once you get past the big guns. I mean, Kei's still there at #9 for chrissakes. Even if you had the likes of Kyrgios, Thiem and Anderson get through to the quarters, I think we'd still have the final we have now.
Love seeing Nava win the Juniors title.
Back to Back boys champs with Korda last year.
I'm really hoping that the final will show how much better Djokovic and Nadal were than everyone else this tournament.
Jk I know what you meant. I expect another Wimbledon semifinal match here. This time reversed, rafa is going to win
If anyone could figure out how to play both sides of the court, it would be Rafa
Both girls started with some jitters but now settling down with score at 3-3.
Great TB for Osaka, and she’s a set away.
Unless she loses concentration in the 2nd, I can see Naomi winning this in straight. And that's no slight on Petra who has played well so far - Naomi's hitting has been too powerful and is serving a little better.
Serious balls on Petra for that hold - saved 3 champ points!
Now Naomi serving for it. Might be a bit nervy after missing those chances...
Oh boy, and there are the nerves.
Good tennis, both ladies ripping some shots.
Lets go 3!
Really tight final. I wouldn't say either of them are playing at their best, but I guess that's the importance of the moment.
Break out of nowhere for Naomi. Massive.
One could say this is a fairly big moment for Naomi.
Osaka! Can’t say enough how impressive it is from her to turn things around after that disaster ending to the second set.
What a fucking final - best women's slam final I can remember.
Well done Naomi, our new #1.
I wish all the Serena weenies from the Open could see this. Glad she said she just not comfortable speaking publicly. It’s just her personality. Makes me like her even more.
Replay of the 3rd set starting now on ESPN2 if anyone missed it live. Was good stuff.
He lost a heartbreaker 14-12 in the 3rd :(
Love his game though. Big serve for a smaller guy, moves well and has a nice 2 hander. Just turned 17 too. Wonder if he's still growing. Lot of guys around his age make a big jump in play because of that.
Nadal-Djokovic almost here. Final prediction is Djokovic in 4 sets.
I'll go Rafa in 4.
Fire up Nadal. 5 setter please!!!
Imagine if this goes 6-2 6-2 6-0 either way
Rafa looks like garbage early.
First set is likely already over.
wow what a start by Novak
Nadal has just won 1 point. Holy hell
Sort of hoping Djokovic comes back down to earth to make this worth waking up for.
Even if Djokovic comes down to earth Rafa is going to have to pick his game of big time. He’s hitting ducks out there. Reminds me of 2014-2016
