    Re: ATP M1000, WTA P5 Roma 9/14 - 9/20 2020

    I know, but it's one of those matchups that just makes Rafa work harder than usual.


    Seems like Diego is about to notch his first win.

    I guess she's not that into tennis.

    Regardless, Diego is playing REALLY well and Rafa's shots are landing short.

    Diego has a history of complicating things for Rafa, must be something in the...

    I can only guess there are night matches to accomodate television, otherwise, the crickets in the background make it depressing.

    Interesting. Not sure I agree 100% on the age boundaries, but still, an intersting take.

    In this case the best option -an amendment- is the hardest (in terms of carrying it out). I would warn against touching the number of justices, once you go down that road, anyone in power can start...

    I love this exercise. Both scenarios A and C sound feasible.

    Would love to hear other possibilities and argue their merits.

    LOL!

    In this tangle of confusion that has become our reality I use Occam's razor more and more.

    Scenario A) she's telling the truth -or at least she thinks she is.

    Scenario B) that while...

    I'm not saying that it can't be a possibility but aren't we making a lot of suppositions? (the anti-Occam)

    They are winning. One, no more knows what is true and what is not.

    Still, why would she lend herself to that?
    Why would she leave her life in China to play the puppet?

    So many questions.

    Re: '20 USO Day 14 OoP & Discussion

    Somewhere along the 3rd and 4th set (not sure since I fazed out) Thiem's shots started landing in and he remembered to play the slice.

    I'm expecting Zverev's racquet-breaking entry anytime now.

    Re: '20 USO Day 14 OoP & Discussion

    Zverev is doing what he needs to do and save for a choke during his first time serving for the second set, he's been solid.

    Thiem, OTOH, is completely off, lethargic and/or tense, misfiring a lot...
