Nurmi, Tyson, Jordan, Messi, Federer... Always pleasure to watch not only sports best ever, but most complete at work. :bow:

Didn't lose single set in Wimbledon. Suspect Now that's he has mastered that backhand, can't see him losing if his physique lasts. He's just technically so far ahead of the rest.

At his age, absolutely amazing. Everyone thought he was finished. His age was showing etc. But he came back better than ever. Not dropped a single set. Did it with class and dignity. Incredible sportsman.

Reminds me of when Goku beat both freezer and cell without turning into super saiyan

He's amazing. The reason I stopped watching Tennis back then. Was a huge Roddick fan and couldn't keep watching Federer win Laughing

What does everyone think of the Shapovalov bandwagon? Have to admit Round 4 at the USO at only 18 years of age is pretty impressive, but some people are talking about this guy as if he were the next Federer

Molenation cheers :bow:

After beating Thiem and Fed in such epic fashion I'm too invested in this. My heart will be crushed when he loses on Friday to Nadal.

This performance was probably his best in years. He is in good form. Backhand looks amazing. Think he'll do it.

He's been playing this way for a while, he beat a lot of world class players in 2016, his tournament form slumped a but in 2017 as he kept facing top 5 players early on because of his low ranking, and now finally in his best tournament he is doing it again. If he is able to win the USO he'll be top 10 again and I would expect him to start performing more regularly in tournaments as he avoids the harder draws.

As far as Nadal is concerned I give him a 30% chance, Nadal looks very good right now. I predict Nadal in 4 sets.

Really gutted about this, like I said earlier I expected Nadal to win in 4, but I expected a much closer match than the demolition we actualy got. Nadal lost a set attacking Delpo's backhand, but as soon as he realized that was not going to work and he changed things up he utterly destroyed Delpo.

Women's side as open as ever with Serena not playing. Halep is playing well though, and Kerber is another one to watch out for.

Federer and Nadal both look good. Wonder how Djokovic will fair if he comes up against one of them.

I did.
Chung was fantastic. Obvious to see the injury took a big hit on Djokovic's game, but take nothing away from the South Korean lad.

Maybe Chung and Cilic will test Federer.

Halep vs Wozniacki should be fun. I really want Woz to win but I won't be holding my breath.

Weird seeing Wozniacki still playing. Remember when she had a docuseries on Danish television when she was 10 or something and how she had no friends and her father made her practice so many hours each day.

She seems happier than ever though, so that's good. Also playing better than ever after meeting David Lee.

Oh wow that's cruel. All that time and her father didn't even have the decency to help her attain some form of an attacking game.

Now Chung pulls out. I bet all those people who paid for a semi final ticket are happy.

Wozniacki's backhand is better than her forehand.

Anyway, well deserved.

Wow wow holy shit. Gutted I couldn't watch this match. Wozniacki literally ran, scattered and tumbled her way to this championship. Never really thought she had it in her, but way to prove me wrong. Really glad, because I've been a day 1.

THE GREAT makes it 20 grand slam titles in total. But what makes it all the more special is the kind of human being he is.
can't say I don't have a tear in me eye.

It's amazing how attached we get to our idols.
