I was rooting for Nadal just so we get a good final, Tsitsipas better not fold 2 and 2 to Djokovic tomorrow or I will be very displeased! At least he has a commanding 100% win record against him ;D

Nadal thought it would be best not to get beaten by Djoker on home soil this close to RG so he let the young greek be on the receiving end of a beatdown in the final.

Young generations continue to disappoint. They are going to have the legacy of not being able to consistently beat players in their 30s.

The gen born in the early to mid 90's is the worst ever. Late 90's to early 2000's gen is looking to be pretty good and guys like Zverev have already had success winning masters titles.

I just read a rumor that Nadal will not play Wimbledon this year because after RG he'll get married and be on his honeymoon.

Kyrgios on Djokovic:
"Simply because, I've played him twice and like, I'm sorry, but if you can't beat me, you're not the greatest of all time. Because if you like look at my day-to-day routine and how much I train and how much I put in, it's zero compared to him.


lol only kyrgios would BRAG about how little he trains

The saga continues, kyrgios just threw a chair on the court after game penalty then shook hands and left match/maybe defaulted? Incredible.

I would have been fine with Federer losing in Round 3, but I do not like Coric (can't explain why), so I'm glad Fed won.

Yep, he was defaulted by the supervisor. Time for at least a few months long ban in my opinion. One of the officials from Kyrgios' match was also an official for McEnroe's default all those moons ago.

EDIT: The qualifier was getting ahead to Kyrgios too. It sucks the match doesn't finish for the qualifier to get this experience and potentially that notch of victory over a top player.

Nadal's been demolishing this whole tournament. Probably lots of pent up dissatisfaction with Monte-Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid.

This week Nadal passed Federer in the "consecutive weeks in top 10" top, with 735 weeks. Jimmy Connors is at no1 with 788 weeks. Rafa can pass him if he stays in top 10 for 14 more months, which is doable.
