    Any of you gayboys watching?

    I always thought tennis players should be able to wear thier own sponsors. Federer would strike fear into Djokovic if he had a team punishment beanie

    I was watching when it was 9-9 but they went to commercial and I lost interest. I just don't care enough about tennis to watch no matter how great it is. I blame the silly scoring system.

    I agree. Whoever invented it is likely part of Genghis Khan's mongoloid tribe.

    It was never part of life growing up, all we cared about is football, boxing, and talking shit about thatcher

    Would've liked to see them keep going but I understand the need for the tiebreak. At the US Open they just go to a normal tiebreak (at 6-6) in the fifth set.

    I believe Australia and Roland Garros still have the "no tiebreak in the 5th set" rule though.

    Problem was that Federer only lost sets on tiebreakers. So as soon as it went 12-12 it was advanatage Novak. I know it is the same for both players and he should have got it done earlier but it did kind of spoil a ridiculously high level final going on a few more games. The final should go on as long as required IMO. No need to limit it. Start it at 1pm and even an ridiculous epic will finish by 8pm with a delay to close the roof.

    I almost suggested making a different rule for the final. I get having the tiebreak rule for the earlier rounds. Remember Isner-Mahut going to 85-83 a few years ago?

    But regardless of who wins, both players will take at least a week off (likely more) from competition after the final anyway.

    So yeah, I agree with you even though you're a pussy.

    He's a spoiled brat rich kid who has the skill and natural talent to be a multi Grand Slam winner but he lacks the passion for the game. Nadal has alluded to as much after matches with him.

    His antics are funny as shit though. He got a spectator kicked out of the Miami Open

    I saw the Miami open drama. Seemed like the fan was starting shit and Kyrgios was just sticking up for himself. That was pretty funny. I like tennis because there is typically little drama involved but sometimes this shit is fun. He lost yesterday in straight sets but had moments of brilliance. If he can channel all of that energy he’d be a force to reckon with.

    I feel terrible for being happy about it.

    But I'm happy about it.

    Vamos Rafa

    @lordofthepies@lordofthepies your mum give you your allowance in time to bet Nadal at the beginning of the tournament? What were the odds?

    I'm familiar with decimals so you don't need to convert

    I took him after the tournament started but Djoker and Fed were still in. He was only paying 3 or 3.25 - I think Djoker was 2.75. But I've only got him as part of a multi (also a better word than "parlay"). Other remaining leg should get up though so should be a win.

    I actually put 5 bucks on Dimitrov and Cilic to beat Fed and Nadal at 95s. Just a weird hunch and it nearly paid off. Should have been less greedy and backed them both separately.
