    What a freaking comeback, but falls just short. That was really fun.

    Listening to Wertheim’s new podcast, mentioned that people shouldn’t get too used to seeing Osaka in Adidas gear. Seems like there is a sponsor change happening there at some point.

    Just me talking, but would guess Uniqlo for massive money.

    Andreescu rolls on, beating Wang 7-5, 6-2. She’s ridiculous.

    She started the year qualifying in Auckland Ranked 152nd.

    After that win she is now going to be roughly 48th come next week. Just an amazing run she is on at 18. 25-3 record

    WOWOW

    Forgot to pay attention but Shapo absolutely destroys Cilic 6-4 6-2

    And with Nishi losing to Hurkacz, he gets him next.

    Bencic up two breaks on Osaka early. I don't understand why TC isn't showing it instead of Venus/Barthel.

    Yeah their first match was against Milos. I guess the first point Milos went 141 body serve at Novak and he had to drop to the ground hahaha

    their are many rumors swirling that novak lost early so he wouldn't have to see (and talk to) Roger and Rafa till Miami, he is straight avoiding them because of this mess

    There are also rumors that Darren Cahill was interested in a leadership role on ATP but was shot down. Somebody put Gimelstob behind bars already so we can move ahead without all this buddy buddy bullshit.

    The Gimelstob stuff is simply mind-blowing at this point.

    Roger said in an interview the other day he asked Novak to meet with him before the board vote and Novak or his people told Roger that he "had no time." Meanwhile, Roger and Rafa met for coffee over a couple hours *during play* at IW to talk about things. Embarrassing from Novak.

    He's an ass, but it's not even really just him at this point. There was a faction of people in the sport that were clearly getting their horses in order behind Gimelstob for him to become a major player in the sport's governing down the road, and instead of backing down with all of his legal stuff, they've just decided to keep pushing forward like nothing's happened.

    Absolutely worked her. The run she is on right now is ridiculous. 25-3 this year now. From 152nd to Top 40 in 2.5 months.

    She literally has all the talent there is.
