    Two breaks early for Rafa. Novak looks flat.

    seems like when Nadal got those first couple drops , Novak didn’t know what to do

    First set bagel for Rafa. Also no longer is the last player to get bageled in the first set of a Slam Final, which I’m sure he’s glad to have off the resume.

    Much more aggressive tennis from Novak to start the second.

    Hm. Did not see the break back coming here. Rafa losing some feel on his first serve.

    We honestly have some nice tournaments going next week. We got 9 ATP tournaments left which is still a good amount. WTA only has 1 which blows

    Really happy for Rafa. It’s kind of surreal that I’ve been watching/hoping for Nadal to catch Federer for a decade and it’s finally happened. I want Federer to get another now lol... go figure.

    I really hope that Federer and Nadal finish 1 and 2 in slams. I respect Djokovic’s greatness but I really do not like him.

    Big week for Big Foe at the Parma Challenger on the clay. Wins the event, beats three top-100 players plus Musetti.

    I watched the match against Delbonis. He got worked in the first set. Then took a MTO in the 2nd and then looked like a different player out there

    The lack of match to match consistency, let alone in-match consistency with Frances frustrates me to no end, but I'll always root hard for that kid. Great story.

    Very interesting. Novak breaks away from the Player's Council, while Fed, Rafa and now Andy are now on it. Also, good on FAA for taking a big role at a young age.
