    You'd get a good 30 minute rant out of Serena for that post alone.

    She is a Mother!

    A 15 year old beats her idol on her debut at Wimbledon. 5 time champ Williams.

    That's poetic.

    Murray and Serena teaming up for the mixed doubles.

    I was at Eastbourne a couple days last week and saw Murray, playing with Melo in the men's doubles, and he had a bit of a shocker. But he and Serena should win. That pairing in mixed doubles is like Brazil's senior side turning up at the U17 World Cup.

    Is Murray playing doubles because he loves tennis, to get match fitness to get back into singles or both?

    Because he's not ready for singles yet and can still claim a title at a major now.

    Tomic fined his full £45k 'winnings' for lack of effort.

    From the highlights in that article he didn't run once.

    He really doesn't give a single shit about the sport.

    Wouldn't he have got half of it for not turning up? Seems a bit vindictive.

    I dearly hope Kyrgios can beat Nadal here, with a maximum amount of antics. He actually makes tennis almost interesting.

    It's one thing to find yourself good at a sport you've no passion for, it's another to continue turning up and collecting the cheques. I've got no patience for him.

    It's fairly clear that he's a massive cunt.

    The new breed of male Aussie players are dicks.

    Real test for her against Halep next round.

    Third round exit...

    The Brazilian national team should hold off on the U17 World Cup entry.

    I know fuck all about tennis but isn't doubles meant to be some sort of specialist thing as opposed to just putting two good singles players together?

    Yes which is why Jamie Murray is a doubles specialist but horseshit when it comes to the singles game.

    Reg should have known better.

    It's true that it's a different sport and most doubles players are specialists (most of the time because they weren't good enough for pro singles), but Murray's won the Davis Cup and Serena's won many slams in doubles. It's not like they're doubles amateurs. Going out to the no.1 seeds is the best way I suppose.

    Pretty much. That whole crew is a little bit awful. I think Kyrgios may legitimately have something slightly wrong with him.

    You have to younger: de Minaur seems like a good kid, without a gigantic chip on his shoulder.

    I've seen practically none of de Minaur, what's his potential d'you reckon @ItalAussie?

    Re: Kyrgios, it occurred to me that it's odd how in tennis spitting can seem abhorrent, when I would never think anything of it if a footballer spat on the pitch (Kyrgios spat on court three times v Nadal). Maybe it's partly because it was him, and how he behaved that match (particularly the blatant cheating when he was jumping left and right like a melon between first and second serves of Nadal, and his attitude towards the umpire).

    Kyrgios clearly has some sort of personality disorder, not a serious one where he'll kill himself but every time he's at peace with himself he sabotages it.

    I don't see him staking out a decade-long spot in the top ten, but he could settle in the seeded range and have the odd good tournament run.

    Tennis is a bit weird at the moment though, so who knows. Raonic and Thiem are the only players under thirty to have played in a Grand Slam final. This tournament threw the age stats into a mix when Zverev, Tsitsipas, and Thiem all went out in the first round. So much for the future.

    Federer won his first major at 23. Djokovic at 20. Although Djokovic had to wait 3 years to really string them together. Federer took his first and kept going.

    Djokovic took 3 years to win his second Grand Slam though whilst Federer then won 3 out of 4 the very next year.

    Fed was 22 (although a month before his 23rd) when he took Wimbledon.

    Yeah, we covered it. I don't think Federer's been so heavy on his schedule as the others. I wonder how much the calender's changed since Federer started winning.

    Saw the highlights of the women's final. That was quite good from Halep. Serena was trying to make the court big but everything was ran down.

    Serena just looks so fucking big. I get that it gives her THE POWER but has she always been that big? It's no wonder she was struggling to get about.
