Wimbeldon just started and we already have seen Serena withdraw in the middle of her first set due to on injury. The women's game is wide open outside of Osaka and couple of others. Who will the future stars and can any woman on the tour stay on top for the next decade the way Federer, Nadal and Djokovic have.

On the men's side I either want Fed or Djokovic to win. I don't know if Fed has enough gas left in the tank in his middle age but it would be a great story. If he can't do it I want Djokovic to win it all and tie for the All Time Grand Slams Titles at 20 with Fed & Nadal. It should be a great tournament.

World number 2 deniil Medvedev has not gotten a match on center court after playing 3 matches ,while now he's been shafted to court 2. While some no name American negress get her matches on centre court it's absolutely farcical.

I like this Denis Shapovalov. He’s a Canadian Russian Jew Greek, I guess. But he’s a lefty with an amazing one-handed back hand. I’m impressed, he’s on to the quarterfinals.

This could easily go in the "We are Living in a Cartoon" thread. Shame, shame, Boris Becker called a woman "very pretty" on air. The left always claims the right wants a "Handsmaid Tale" society when they're the ones who have constructed a sexless one that hates feminine beauty and sexuality and glorifies ugly and obese. But of course projection is their most prominent characteristic:

Novak does it again, winning Wimbledon for the third straight year and sixth time overall. He now also ties Nadal and Federer with 20 Slam titles! Simply amazing, tennis fans have been so blessed the past 15 years.

Djokovic has now won the first three Slam titles of 2021. If he wins the U.S. Open he'll complete the Grand Slam, last accomplished by Rod Laver over 50 years ago. Expect U.S. media interest to be underwhelming to put it mildly.

Whether he completes the Grand Slam or not, there appears to be no stopping Novak Djokovic from being the unchallenged greatest tennis player ever.

Novak Djokovic is the New King Of Tennis! In a fair world of sports reporting he would be as big as Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, etc. but no tennis is just too white. Can you imagine if Novak was black? He would
get a thousand times the media coverage! Even more but no we just can't have Americans or white kids around the world have another white role model to look up to. Novak is also anti vaccine! True hero on and
off the court. He has become one of my favorite athletes in any sport! Congrats on tieing the record and here's to him winning the US Open to equal the great Rod Lavers Legendary Feat and have more career
grand slams than any mens tennis player ever. What a living legend!

At this point maybe the only thing that can stop him is a ban on non-vaccinated players.

That said, Nadal is still a US Open threat and could win more French titles.
