    It really is incredible that we've been able to witness in real time the three greatest players of all time. Makes what players like Stan the man and Murray did a little more special.

    Yeah that was pretty awesome last night. The Oprah thing, for a second time, was a bit much afterwards though.

    I didn't stay up to watch Nedal/Fognini but Nadal prevailed.

    The female doubles match wasn't that good at all w the Williams sisters vs the Czechs.  They were very overmatched.  So I guess there is Serena to watch still in the singles.

    I'll be rooting for Kyrgios but he may have an early exit here if he faces Medvedev in the next round.  He is entertaining to watch.

    So Go Nadal and Kyrgios I guess. No Djokovic or Federer...

    Kyrgios won!  I forgot to post that.

    Watching Nadal now but I’d Like the American Tiafoe to win.  Either way I’m happy w the results.

    Tiafoe won.  Now that was a fun exciting match!

    Kyrgios lost.  He wasn't at his best.  He missed a lot of routine shots and he knew it.  Khachanov played great too.

    I am not sold on Cocoa at all.  It seems tennis wants to make her the next big thing and I just don't see it.

    Well Djokovic dominated that match. He’s definitely up there as far as “The Goat” for men’s tennis is

    Good match so far between Alcarez and Djokovic. Tied 2-2 going to the fifth and final set. Pearl-Jam-Smileys

    Fantastic Wimbledon finals, could have gone either way. Alcarez was just a tad bit better today. :clap:

    The Zverev/Fritz match was really good. Only caught the first 3 sets however (had to go out). Was surprised to find out Fritz came back and won in 5 sets.

    but her frustration was dumb. what’s brad gilbert supposed to say? “quit hitting the ball into the net?” they should go back to the old rule.

    last american man to win wimbledon - sampras 2000. last slam of any kind? roddick 2003. crazy.

    The tennis world knew with the retiring Sampras America had nobody in the wings.  I also thought I would never see the likes of what he accomplished again and then we get the gifts of Federer, Nadal and Djokivic for the next 20 years after.

    I don't know whos next after Djokivic to reign...

    And yes back to the old way.

    I thought she was gonna choke until she finally pulled out her last service game. She won the French a few years back. Must have either been hurt or played like shit to fall to the 31 seed.
