    Just curious but are y’all just big time tennis fans or did/do you still play? I played in HS, but haven’t played in quite awhile now.

    Both. Try to play 1-2 times per week and enjoy watching it.

    Never played. I’m a degenerate gambler and wanted something to bet during the day at the office. It was right at the time Raonic and Genie were becoming big and I’ll cheer for anything Canadian. Started following it and now I watch it every day. Just absolutely love it

    Okay I know Diego been on fire and was probably going to win. But to be up 6-1 4-0 on someone like Sonego. Holy shit

    I believe it was Novak yesterday who said in press the bubble is a farce. He was on the elevator in the hotel with like a random family who had rented a room and were traveling.

    Feel bad for the WTA.

    ATP has 9 tournaments after the French Open in 5 weeks.
    WTA has 1 tournament. After the US Open is always like a month in China and all of those are cancelled.

    Gaston looks like he’s just gone for a light Sunday morning jog while Thiem looks like he’s back at the US Open final

    I have a guy I follow on Twitter that just makes gifs, beautiful gifs. He's had his account shut down on Twitter at least 5 or 6 times. It makes zero sense to me why any league or organization would want less exposure. The only thing I can imagine is that it's just bored lawyers or some random dolt with a power trip.

    I would think the smart move would be to hire the person. Obviously their content is top tier if you are trying to shut them down.

    I blocked some photographer from guitar magazine on Instagram after she went on some long-winded rant about it being unfair for people to copy her work and give her credit but not pay her for it. Like really she should've been happy people were seeing it at all since she mostly works for a magazine.

    Also just finished watching Kenin come back to win in 3 sets. Damn impressive

    So one of Podoroska, Swiatek or Trevisan will make a Slam final here. Incredible. Think/hope it’s Swiatek.

    Im watching Kenin/Mattek-Sands in doubles. They had 6-1 4-4 and Triple Break Point 0-40 to serve for the set. Couldn't get it and Kenin got broken to love the next game

    The first double fault was bad. What else about it is blatant?

    The 2nd point she was clearly trying to hit the net IMO. She didn't know what to do when it went over.
