    i'm gonna go with jessica pegula on the women's side. i'm watching her play Tig right now. it took her a while to breakout but better late than never.

    on the men's side i want it to be anyone besides djokovic or alcaraz lol. don't get me wrong, both are cool dudes, but i wanna see someone else win

    @aleeex1923 medvedev gets revenge on alcaraz for how badly he beat him earlier this year. it'll be interesting to see if Medvedev can beat Djokovic in another major final.

    on the women's side you've got coco vs sabalenka. coco has been playing very well lately but sabalenka is gonna be a tough challenge. coco is really gonna need her forehand to come thru if she's gonna pull this off

    Great games from both Coco and Djokovic, that girl at 19y old came back against a much more experienced player after losing 1st set like it was nothing, eventhough I supported Sabalenk I have to give it to Coco, well deserved.

    And for Nole, wtf man, that guy's a machine.

    @aleeex1923 nadal lost in straight sets on his best surface---but it was cool just to see him out there playing again.

    osaka was up 5 to 2 in the third set against Iga but couldn't close the deal. Iga kept fighting and came back and won

    I also have top spin2k25 (got it 2 weeks ago) and I like it too. I’m glad you mentioned this because nobody on my friends list has it. Anyway I’m on Play-Station 5. And even if we don’t have the same console…I think we can still play because of cross play

    sounds good. by the way, is there a way you can play more than 3 games per set in top spin2k25? can that be changed, or no?

    i don't think you can change it in exhibition. and if you can, i don't see how. so far, the only thing i've played is exhibition and academy (tutorial). i'm gonna play the other modes too, i just haven't gotten around to it yet. anyway, it's good to know you can at least change it in career mode

    since we have have different consoles, i'm pretty sure that Ragnar#55939 is the I.D. you're going to need for us to play each other

    just simulated an exhibition game -> after you select both players -> in the same window where you select the venue on the right sight you should have "Match Settings" and you click on the button that says there and you change the settings of the match

    thats on single player exhibition against the AI - if you're asking about online exhibition, there I don't think you can

    edit: sent you a friend request within the game

    thanks for pointing this out to me--i somehow didn't notice that match settings option but i see it now.

    anyway i'll try to find your friend request and accept it. this crossplay stuff is new to me. do you know where i should look for the friend request?

    on the main menu of the game you need to press on the button that brings you to your messages the one from top right corner after that it has to be under Social - on the left side, I sent a friend request from the last option with the "bell" icon

    I accepted your friend request. Now we just gotta find a day/time that works for both of us. I’m in America and I’m the eastern standard time zone

    by the way, Djokovic withdrew from French open and now he has to have knee surgery. Feel bad for him because at his age it’s gonna be hard to win more of these majors after having a knee procedure. Kinda like what happened to Federer towards the end of his career

    also, Alcaraz beat Tsispas which didn’t surprise me. But I figured Tsispas would at least win one set and he didn’t. Alcaraz beat him fairly easily

    yeah, watching last few days of RG, I think Alcaraz and Swiatek will take this down

    I'm playing the game right now, if you wanna hop in let me know hahah
