Tennis

Sinner was out Novak-ing Novak, which is a rare feat and speaks to his talent, but you have to know going in a match against Novak, especially on grass, he's always going to make a push and you have to be ready to stay with him. No one resets better.

I definitely have the most pro-Novak posts of anyone on this forum, but I really like Sinner, and would have loved to see him in a slam final.
 
she/her
I wanted Sinner to win but knew Djokovic would find a way back. Sinner's level went downhill after that second set.

Norrie should be an easy match for Djokovic.
 
The Simona effect on these girls... LOVE to see it.

Rybakina was super tight getting herself over the line against Tomljanovic today, so I wonder how she'll cope with an in-form Simona.

Finding myself having to root hard for Rafa because I'm not sure I can bear to watch a Djokovic-Kyrgios final.
 
Fritz repeatedly hit his backhand cross court to the point where Rafa was able to easily position himself for a down the line forehand

Maybe the Grand Slam choke of the year so far on the men’s side? But Taylor’s young-ish and having his best year yet so maybe this’ll just be motivating to win big back home at the US Open?
 
The irony of the All England Club's political machinations being outdone by the innate political machinations of tennis federations, and a natural Russian making the final, would prove how misguided the ban on players really was.

For Simona... I'm reminded of her early matches against Maria where she just couldn't overpower the veteran, except now there's the extra mental pressure of Simona being the veteran. Not over yet though.

Welp, looks like she just couldn’t do it unfortunately. I wonder if Simona has another big final in her?
