Writing off one of the greatest players in history as unwatchable because he takes up the whole shot clock on his serves - something he's far from alone in - is pretty drastic, I'd suggest.

I don't mind Nadal playing slowly when he's serving - it's in the rules and he's perfectly entitled to take that time, even if I personally prefer watching players who go a bit quicker.

 

However, I've always been irritated by him slowing things down when returning, when the laws state he should play at the server's pace. He's definitely been allowed to persistently disrupt opponents' rhythm through his entire career, but obviously it's down to the umpires to enforce the rules, and they have all completely failed to do so.

You're right, he does take his time serving...

 

 

 

Should have ended with him throwing it up, letting it drop, and then more bouncing

Watching Jack Draper play Alex De Minaur. I've never seen De Minaur play before but he's great to watch, pulling off some really good shots and tearing round the court like a man possessed.

Anyone watching the Begu/Ostapenko game? I've got it on in the background while I'm working but the noises coming from Ostapenko with every single hit are ridiculous, it must be really off-putting to play against.

Heather Watson is through to the fourth round of a Slam for the first time, at 30 years of age. Fair play to her - she's doing really well here.

 

Yeah, this was quality - was well stoked for her. Beautiful match point, too.

 

Djokovic just absolutely pissing it.

Great stuff from Cam Norrie to reach the second week of a Grand Slam for the first time.

 

And this Jamie Murray/Venus Williams partnership looks powerful.

Kyrgios has been a total dick and Tsitsipas has risen to it and the crowd are angry at Tsitsipas? This country seems to love entitled little toddler men. 


dunno. Tsitsipas did hit a ball into the crowd, and did try to take kyrgios out. 
 

(but bear in mind I don’t like tsitsipas, and kyrgios being nuts is kind of priced in)

Yeah - after Kyrgios has been acting like a complete arsehole for two sets. That’s my point.

Kyrgios has wound him up like a budgie. It’s been amazing to see. Commentators were wanking over how composed and professional Tsitsipas was compared to Kyrgios as they were warming up. Get it up them.

Kyrgios getting 77% of first serves in, and winning 85% of them, is probably why Tsitipas is actually nerked. 
 

And love forty…

on the iplayer mate, seen he's stuffing Sonego. Cannot believe Kyrgios is ranked 40.


doesn’t play enough, and is entirely self destructive.
