    Gasquet played it a lot too. Remember all these injuries coming out of nowhere with him a few years ago? I'm not sure how much Tsonga played it but many of the top French male players play it.

    I knew absolutely nothing about these French exhibitions. Fascinating.


    So, the Fed vs. Nishikori match. Can I ballpark that around 8 am ET or so you think?

    Probably a good guess.

    It turned out to be a pretty good match. The same for Nole/Kevin.
    But in the end, the top three always find a way out.

    Clearly Djokovic is in the middle of one of his unbeatable phases.

    It's starting to feel that way. The question I'm asking myself now is can he win the calendar slam next year and the I'm thinking he probably can.

    I saw the match yesterday. His ball is consistently clearing the net by 5-6 feet, and landing 2-3 feet from the baseline. With pace.
    The monster is back. He is moving beautifully, he has the mojo back.
    50% chance of winning the Slam next year, solely because Rafa at RG might still beat him.

    I got an alert that Federer shockingly lost in straight sets to Coric. I wonder who writes these things despite clearly covering tennis. Because I have to assume they cover, but don't watch. Nothing about this loss should be shocking if you follow tennis.

    Indeed, maybe 5 years ago it would have been but not now. Aa for Djokovic one day he'll hit a wall too, only very hard to predict when. Probably not next year.

    True, but I wouldn't bank on him ever winning Roland Garros again

    Great week for Novak, didn't drop a set. And while I'm certainly not the biggest fan of his, my favorite win of his this week that I just loved was that beatdown of Sascha. Since he was talking about himself like he was some kind of legend recently it seemed well deserved.
