    Wish Kyrgios would have come back. Copil and his crew showed up last year smoking cigs, I was impressed.

    Same. He really seemed to like Atlanta too. Was surprised he didn’t come back. Getting FAA is a nice consolation prize.

    I read it more like he doesn't see them wanting to put in the work to improve once they've made it to their current level. To an extent I could see that, and having things like tournaments increasing their payouts for lower rounds might not help.

    Certainly possible. I just hate to paint with a broad brush on such things. Are there some young guys that don’t work hard enough? Absolutely.

    But you’ve also got young guys playing so much tennis that they’re running themselves into the ground (Tsitsipas, Thiem, De Minaur, etc).

    Jarry played so well, hit him off the court.

    Dreddy was such a tough draw early for Sasha in a 250.

    Dreddy and Mahut are two guys you dont want early in a draw in grass season

    And there is criticism of the younger guys? How? You have virtually 15 years of tennis where you have to face these guys? It's just soul crushing.

    And neither of the guys that were able to end those streaks are healthy enough to do it right now. Gonna have to be someone else to step up.

    Team Europe announces 5 of their 6 guys for Laver Cup:
    Roger, Rafa, Sasha, Thiem, Fognini (<3). One spot open, most assume they’ll go after Tsitsipas.

    Fognini is sexy in this type of atmosphere, kinda surprised Stan isn't on here considering its in Switzerland :warn:

    Do wonder if they’ll try and do someone besides Stefanos given Sasha and Stef aren’t fans of each other.

    My bias is showing here, but I cant wait to see the reception the Swiss give Roger in such a huge event

    this is fantastic and I thank you. Having said that, I have very strong internet and every match I click on its pixels and a tad blurry which is kind of annoying. Is it always that way?

    Berretini with a really nice win over Struff to make the Stuttgart final. I really love his game. Definite guy to keep an eye on going forward.

    Raonic withdraws from the FAA match due to back pain. So, Berretini-FAA in the Stuttgart Final tomorrow. Kyrgios and Shapo playing exhibition doubles together right now in Stuttgart to give the fans some tennis.

    One of my favorite non-slam weeks on the calendar with both Halle and Queen's Club going. QC is such a great venue.
