uh so nothing like mcenroe.
Kyrgios has toned down his antics, now Tomic is enemy #1 here.
Well, I edited it out, but McEnroe was and still is very outspoken and opinionated. His opinions are just starkly different.
yeah, it wasn't a good comparison. mcenroe generally seems like a good person, he shouldn't be compared to neo-nazis because they also "have opinions".
kyle edmund with a huge upset of dimitrov and into the semifinals. easily the biggest win of his career.
really hate to see rafa's tournament end like that
Yeah this is the one KW Gutted to see him go like this. Nadal will thankfully be able to keep his #1 but it'll be near run thing if Fed wins. And if his injuries continue, he might lose it very soon.
Edit: Nvm, looking it up, Fed has a ton of points to defend in the coming months so Nadal should have it until clay season, where he then has a ton of points to defend.
I feel for Nadal and Djokovic. There's an expectation now that all these guys can play at a high level well past 30, but it might not be realistic for everyone.
If Chung beats Sandgren, that will be two early twenty-somethings in the semis, which will be great. How cool would it be for a South Korean to make a grand slam final? Has that ever happened?
hat tip to @Point Given.
For a former winner, Nadal has had such bad luck in Australia. Most of the toughest breaks in his career have probably happened there.
This kid is becoming a legend.
I hate to say it about a fellow American, as Sandgren's now deleted tweet record represented the views of at worst only about 35-40% of Americans...but I hope Chung kicks his ass.
it was a tough way to go out, but credit needs to be given to cilic who was playing great tennis and likely would have won even without rafa's injury. just wish we could have seen it play out.
I sat down to enjoy the Kerber-Keys match, and then it was over.
when kerber is in form, she is a wrecking ball on this surface
huge congrats to hyeon chung, the first korean to ever reach a major semifinal.
Good news for us Rafa fans! @KnightWriter
Also hats off to Chung too (though admittedly I'm more happy about Sandgren losing)
Also Sandgren's statement on losing. What a tool
go fed go
that was clinical out there
Fed's renaissance is due in part to managing his body for outlasting the generation of players who came up right behind him gunning to learn how to beat him (Djokovic, Murray, Wawrinka, Nadal, etc.) but holy crap he can still bring it at a high level.
Now there's a new generation of early twenty somethings gunning for Federer. If he gets past Chung he may have to play that kid from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Federer is the New England Patriots of the ATP. At some point it gets boring.
Apropos, given he's buddies with Brady.
Wozniacki won both her 2017 matches against Halep, but they're even in hard court matches over their careers. Hoping for a match as good as Halep/Kerber, but that's a lot to hope for.
The Chung reckoning is nearly at hand for Federer. I'm almost sorry there won't be a Chung-Edmund final. Arrival of the next gen, etc. Would have been exciting.
The Chung reckoning was swift and decisive and a bit sad.
Cilic-Federer. Since Cilic's 2014 straight set U.S. Open win in the semis, Federer has beaten him twice at Wimbledon. Best hopes for a great match.
i am so happy for Woz. cannot think of anyone on the women's side more deserving of a Slam. now Halep at Roland Garros, hopefully.
She is a woman of exceedingly good taste.
