    About goddamn time. So glad Stan and Andy added their voices to the growing unrest as that seems to have been the final nail in the coffin.

    Gimelstob has now also resigned from Tennis Channel.

    In better news, Delpo is back practicing in Madrid.

    Fuck that li'l git. Tennis world is better off without him and his schemes. I've heard a couple of stories from my brother's friend who works at Tennis Channel about how he was a prick in general who rubbed many there the wrong way.

    Sasha is an absolute mess. Garin also beat him in 2013 at the Junior French Open.

    I did the same thing. I didn't realize they had started until later last night when I saw Madrid on TC. I assumed it was replays from last year for the first 30 minutes or so that it was on and then I heard references to recent items and had to do a double take.

    First time seeing Osaka in her Nike threads. She's got two sponsor patches on the shirt and a Mastercard logo on the side of the visor. I don't really remember Nike letting people put logo's on their stuff before.

    Tennis star Naomi Osaka has become the first Nike star to receive permission to include rival sponsors on her Nike-sponsored threads.

    The World No. 1 is just two weeks into her bumper ambassadorial deal with the sporting apparel giant and will reportedly make history when the French Open begins on May 26.

    The reigning Australian Open and US Open champion made a high profile move from adidas to Nike earlier this year, reportedly knocking back offers of more than $US10 million.

    While the financial terms of the Nike deal have never been confirmed by either party, reports at the time claimed the 21-year-old star will earn more than $12 million ($US8.5) per year.

    It has now emerged that Osaka’s Nike deal includes a company-first proviso that will allow Osaka to include branding from her existing sponsors on the Nike outfits she wears on the court.

    The proviso amplifies the value of her outfit towards one of the richest items of clothing in women’s tennis history.

    Shapo beat Rafa in their first ever match, lets see what FAA can do. Although playing him on clay compared to hard courts is not really comparable. But still, what an exciting matchup for a 2nd round encounter
