So Andy hasn’t ruled out the possible of returning. I rather him have the operation now and then see if he can continue. Rather than seeing him in pain at Wimbledon, I rather that not be his finale there.

Some men's tennis was played today.

Somewhere in the world presumably, certainly not on strawberry floating Rod Laver Arena that's for sure

lmao I just realised, the number one best thing Nishikori could do to beat Djokovic would be to permanently retire from tennis and let someone else play him instead.

Nishikori is a mystery. He’s just a carbon copy of Ferrer. Nothing special to his game. Djokovic would need to be way off his game to lose three sets to him.

Nishikori will never win a slam or challenge for one. Like Ferrer he gets pushed to 5 sets too much in the early rounds which leaves him jaded when he reaches the second week.

Nadal is a strawberry floating machine. Hope Novak gets through but he'll have to raise his game to beat Rafa in this mood.

I still have more respect for Pouille than Nishikori, who should be capable of more but never ever delivers.

That was a demolition job. These new strawberry floaters coming through better get sharp quick or the top 3 will still be playing in their 40’s.

'mon Rafa.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Novak! :wub:

He's torn Rafa a new one there.

Absolutely pummelled him.

As close to perfection as you're going to get in tennis. Nadal didn't play his best because he simply didn't have a say. What a performance.

When he's like that - he's unbeatable. Peerless tennis. Restricting Nadal to 8 games in a Slam Final?
strawberry floating ridiculous.

Barring injury - I honestly think now it's a matter of when not if Djokovic beats Federer's slam total.

Djoko 8-)

I agree, I think he has a real chance to surpass Federer.
