    well, i guess neither of us saw that coming lol.

    joker missed too many routine shots that he would normally make. his serve was also off. he just dug himself too deep of a hole, and you can't do that against nadal, especially at the french open. i'm really surprised joker lost that easily, especially given how well he's played in 2020. the crazy thing is nadal didn't lose ONE SET in the ENTIRE 2020 french open :emoji_astonished:

    d--- that was impressive, too bad Djokovic did so many errors cause he had some moments in the 3rd set when his game was going in the right direction and you could see Nadal struggled with that.
    Oh well, Good Game Rafa. Totally deserved.

    Yup already saw Shapovalov vs Sinner, amazing game. Is nice to see fans in the stands no masks, no social distancing. Can't wait for this fking nightmare to be over.

    Now getting my popcorn ready to watch Anderson - Berrettini and Tsitsipas - Gilles Simon.

    i just watched serena vs. naomi.

    naomi got off to a slow start but once she settled down she pretty much controlled the match for the rest of the way. serena kept fighting but you could just tell that naomi was in control. i will say this though--naomi will have to clean up/eliminate all those double faults if she wants to win in the final

    who do you have winning medvedev vs. tsitsipas?

    Well I for sure think Medvedev will crush him, Tsitsipas must be tired as h--- after that marathon against Rafa also Medvedev leads 5-1 in the games they played together.

    Everytime they play against each other my mind goes back to this moment when tsitsipas called him "bs russian" and that's strange cause I think his mother is a russian lol

    lol yeah that was a funny moment. Medvedev pretty much crushed him like you predicted, it didn't even reach 4 sets.

    so now Medvedev has to beat Djokovic to win the tournament. maybe he'll finally capture his first major this year...

    i didn't get to see this match. the only reason i didn't watch it is because in America it was on at 3:30am. in other words it was on when people are typically sleeping

    i thought Djokovic would win, but not that easily. i'm disappointed Medvedev didn't put up a better fight.

    anyway, do you play tennis with your friends or anything? where i live the weather is starting to warm up, so i'm gonna start playing some tennis with my co-workers. :grinning:
