Congrats to Kyrgios! He played the crowd villain the entire tournament and really relished that role. The strange career saga of Nick continues

Yes I'm happy Kyrgios made it, I like the player and the guy and I hope he becomes more consistant. When Fed stop I'd like Kyrgios to be there at the highest level, I'd support him.

Also nice video here and just for the entire moment with Andy Murray it's worth the watch:

That's what is so upsetting to me about Kyrgios, no doubt he's likable and talented but then there is his other side on and off court...It's not a character trait I want to have my son look up to for his tennis journey. I too would enjoy seeing him be more consistent and tempered with a long standing career at the top.

For me, and watching/learning from tennis with my son, it's De Minaur for now though. Tought less natural talent than Kyrgios but just pure mental game strength and hard work to get across the line. Natural talent only lasts so long and goes so far.

Roland Garros tickets secured!

Going the opening Sunday in these seats on Chatrier



and the opening Monday here:



Super exciting for me as it has been a dream for the last 15 years to make it to France and RG. Sadly it means no money left over to go to Indian Wells this weekend, but I will enjoy watching that on TV.

The Serena v. Azarenka match sounded just like old times! Azaranka even brought her high pitched owl grunt back for the first time since giving birth!

Osaka next for Bencic. Don't expect her to win but if she did that would make it 5 wins over top 10 players in just a few weeks.

She's on a hot streak right now that's for sure. Wonder if she can sustain this level into the summer slams

As a Federer fan: Well he's beaten Nadal the last five times!
Also as a Federer fan: He's obviously getting demolished by Nadal RIP
