Thiem seemed hurt. I just can’t help but to feel a bit cheated not seeing what a healthy Thiem would have done.

Nadal is speaking 4 languages up there - English, French, Spanish, and Catalan.

Not only the greatest tennis player ever but also a genius...

I was really pulling for Sousa today.
I can’t wait for Nadal to get exposed.

Nah. Novak looks imperious and Roger won't go away without a fight, he's hardly had to try yet.

Big 3 looking very big indeed.

Novak for me
Buddy of mine from Switzerland is thinking of flying to London for the semifinals on Friday. He said tickets are €6,000 each.

That's fookin insane

Something was up with Sousa. I won’t be surprised to find out his knee is messed up. I’m not making excuses for him, I just feel like we missed out seeing what should have been a very close match.

I took Nads at +700 (under the retarded Yank odds system).

Pretty happy with that bet.
I imagine the Djokovic odds weren't great even when you picked. He's the smartest choice.

Roger or Rafa will have to have two incredible matches back-to-back to win the tournament. Djokovic only has to play one of those guys.

It’s like you’re speaking another language. A really gay one.

On a grass surface (Wimbledon is basically the only grasscourt tournament, there are a few before Wimbledon but the grasscourt season is undoubtedly the shortest), the ball bounces fastest, faster than on hardcourts - on which 90% of the year's tournaments are played.

But the surface is better for the body because it's softer, so someone like Rafa, who's had knee problems in the past, isn't putting his body through as much agony as he is on hardcourts.

Lars Soros @Lars but hardcourts differ from one to the next, so while grass or clay is pretty much the same, with only environmental differences playing a factor, the hardcourt in Melbourne is different from the hardcourt in Flushing Meadows, for example.

Yeah, Djokovic will probably still win. But I'm pretty confident the old man won't beat Nadal with how the courts are playing.

I'll take +700 in a competitive 2-horse race.

I said this to a friend yesterday and it's pretty fukn insightful so I'll say it here as well.

Roger's biggest enemy is age, Rafa's biggest enemy is his body, and Novak's biggest enemy is his mind.
