    The bullshit Russian gets his redemption. Tough for Djokovic getting played off the court most the match, but good for Med.

    I gotta admit, I didn’t think he could do it. Even with more petrol in the tank than Djoker. This is going to do wonders for his self confidence. :golfclap:

    I don’t think he could really even control it. 2 weeks of pressure and the moment just broke over. Was during the changeover at 4-5

    Yeah, it's not pathetic at all. In fact, it's understandable and I don't even like the douche.

    Calling out the FIFA dead fish celebration and no one there understanding what he meant.

    I’m really happy Medvedev did this against the last of the Bigs who is still in their prime. Better than watching him beat a banged up 45 year old Federer or hobbled Nadal. He earned it, and deserves it.

    I started cheering then laughing and said lol the dead fish! Wife said, “What?” I responded with, “Nothing.” I wasn’t going to explain it.

    Maybe I'm being harsh, but I think it further demonstrates the guy's bizarre mindset of having to win everything & absolutely having to be the best. I mean, he's won 3 slams already this year and multiple more in recent times and today, for whatever reason, he had a bad day. I get the frustration but he's clearly built this up way too much in his own head. There's a reason players don't win the grand slam - it's ridiculously hard. It's okay to lose sometimes. :idk:

    We have enough evidence at this point about what it does to you mentally. I don't think it's a coincidence we've seen the same from Serena is similar situations. For the GOATs, it's not ok to lose when you're that close to history given what you've put into it.

    From the glitz and glamour of Ashe at the US Open last night to a WTA event being played in what sounds like an empty warehouse in Luxembourg on TC this morning.

    What a sport.

    I have to see the betting action on this because there is no way a results should ever happen. Diego not trying should win that 6-1 6-1

    That one's really smelly. Either Diego's injured and not 100% or there's some shenanigans going on.

    And another woman who is quickly rising, Tauson wins Luxembourg over Ostapenko. She lost to Barty at the Open but actually was Raducanus last loss in Chicago (Final). She has some nice wins this season and is only 18. Another one to watch.

    Also, Ostapenko is a complete twat of a human.

    Another teen! The list of young players just gets bigger. I wish I could make a bet on Coco never winning a major at like 15-1

    Halep announces she's split from Darren Cahill coaching her. Think that's a mistake on Simona's part.

    Been in and out of TC, they've been showing some brutally horrible men's matchups this week. I did catch her yesterday though.

    1 for 13 on break point chances by Felix. That’s brutal. He was the better player today.
