Federer-Djokovic is the best possible match to watch if Rafa isn't playing.
Rafa decided to skip this tournament because he won last week and needs to rest up to defend his title at the U.S. Open, which starts a week from tomorrow (August 27)
Nah I was about to go to bed off a 36 hour traveling day. Tennis can go suck a dick for a few hours.
Watching tennis across the pond in the middle of the night is always tough to justify
When's the US @conor mcgregor nut hugger ? I forget that start date every year
Starts August 27
@benjo0101 the draw will be very important.
Though I think Rafa is playing better on hard courts than both Roger and Djoko right now, I'd much rather have Novak on Roger's side of the draw.
Rafa and Roger will go in to the tournament ranked 1-2, respectively.
@benjo0101 I was looking forward to a Fed-Djoko quarterfinal matchup
Federer loses to John Millman in the 4th round.
Mrs. Velvet just said the exact same thing lol
Djoko will spark him in straight sets. Fed is just old
Any news on why fed put in a below par showing?
He blamed the heat and humidity.
But it's summer and it's the east coast. It's brutal every summer.
Worth noting tHough that he was up a set and serving at 5-4 to take the second set when his game just took a massive shit.
Maybe he needed a massive shit?
Nah he's just old.
If @Robbie Hart can remember what it's like to be 37, perhaps he can explain it in greater detail.
@benjo0101 I've noticed you haven't been as active on the tennis thread. Did your new wife cut out your sports viewing, your forum posting, or both?
When you are able to get your balls back from her purse, let me know kthanksbye.
Too far back to remember
I unfortunately cannot blame my new wife. I can blame my choice of career, they now expect me to work for my money... something I try and avoid. I will try and come back more often.
Thiem is the future isnt he?
In my mind you are like the Ents in LOTR
But VAMOOOOOOOOS RAFAAAAAAAA
That was apparently an epic match, but I did not watch it. It was on too late and I can't get my emotions that high for the quarterfinals.
I fixed it
I'm thinking of asking my doctor for a viagra prescription
@benjo0101 @lueVelvet thoughts/predictions? The men's semifinals start tomorrow:
