    Smart call. I love Laver Cup, but in the event we're playing tennis in the fall, it's a luxury event taking up a week on the calendar that actual events will need.

    It took me entirely too long to realize that said shorts and not shots.

    Probably the most noticeable response came from a WTA founder...

    2009 US Open on right now. What could have been with Del Porto...

    Seen this match so many times, still jarring to see someone power Roger around the court with these ground strokes.

    Every once in a while Del Porto will hit a baseline rally forehand harder than I’ve ever seen before. It’s glorious.

    Also, it’s insane to think that Roger was going for his sixth straight US Open title and now it’s 2020 and he’s never one another one.

    yeah I see on FlashScore there’s been a lot of exhibition matches with no name people.

    If I had to guess if Berrettini was ranked closer to 8th or 88th, I would have chose 88th before I read that tweet. Insane.

    Definitely crazy how quick he shot up. Semifinals at the US Open and at Shanghai Masters doing a lot of the heavy lifting there rankings wise.

    Weird they're doing a private court, why not just use the Delray Beach Open court.

    West Palm is one of the counties NOT included the state's "reopen" plans as Broward, Miami, and WPB were all more heavily affected than anywhere else in the state.

    Apparently that doesn't matter but interesting nonetheless.

    Actual tennis at the top of the hour on TC.

    Schedule appears to be:
    Tommy Paul - Hubert Hurkacz
    Reilly Opelka - Miomir Kecmamovic
    Paul - Opelka

    Berrettini and Sandgren had to pull out with injuries.

    They are legit playing in some rich guys backyard. Owner built a really nice regulation court.

    Somewhere Nadal is watching this and thinking "Only one towel? No fucking way I can play like that"

    Did they use ball kids?

    Nope. Had a chair umpire wearing a mask and one guy outside the court calling service in/out. Otherwise, called their own lines, picked up their own balls (each guy had their own designated set of balls) and picked up their own towel.

    I hope the towel thing stays gone and it probably will have to. Ball kids speed up the game obviously but that will come back eventually.
