Business as usual, then.Also John McEnroe is talking absolute bollocks on the BBC right now.
I admit I forgot about him, but he does deserve a mention. Going into the tournament, the only under 30s with a quarter final appearance to their name were Lucas Pouille (who seems stuck in a slump), Nick Kyrgios (I think this one explains itself) and Bernard Tomic (who you could be forgiven for forgetting was once halfway decent; he certainly has). The further the young contingent go, the more they can build a fanbase, so even if Novak takes the title this year (which I still expect) there will be some "names" with grass court pedigree to root for in the years to come.Khachanov isn’t exactly part of the “#NextGen,” but good on him as well, he’s got such a massive power game, he shouldn’t be floundering in second or third rounds.
I think this may have been a bit premature?Worst Wimbledon since Wimblegeddon.
I'm sure Serena doesn't want her last Wimbledon to be her only injury retirement and second first round defeat at a slam in 79 appearances either, but at their age with all that they've achieved, they may well be wondering if another shot (which may or may not go any better) is really worth the effort.I’m not sure Roger wants his last Wimbledon match to be having been bageled in the third set.
It wasn't even a handshake, they just touched rackets like everyone was doing after the tour resumed last year.I was really rooting for Aryna today but Karolina is so winning the final if she just keeps serving this way.
Aryna looked sad/upset or both at the handshake, hope she won't be too disappointed, plenty more chances for her to come.
