How many try-hard Disser points do I get for watching these two go to fives sets rather than… watching something else?


#142

will still be going after it ends at this rate


#143

Going tomorrow now


#144

Enjoy, and make sure you tell us about it!


#145

bit gutted that Delpo lost.
Nadal - Djokovic is intriguing though, think Djokovic might be playing better tennis than Rafa but also looks more brittle. Will probably be really high quality, just find matches between these 2 a bit of a slog to actually sit through.

Got my popcorn ready for Ostapenko - Kerber now


#146

Bit of a soggy squid that wasn’t it.

Bit emosh about that Novotna tribute earlier.


#147

Matches I would try to get to see if I was @DarwinBabe going this afternoon:

Fredo and Vika in the mixed on Court One.
Bjorkman and Woodbridge v Bahrami and Ivanisevic on Court Three.
Maybe a spot of the wheelchair tennis on the outsides.


#148

Fuckin’ love Serena Williams so much


#149

hope the final is as good as the other two Serena - Kerber slam finals
both players looking great


#150

Well I was right with my mixed tip. Some cracking rallies in that one, and a nice tense finale.


#151

Also amused that after two weeks of blazing sunshine Jamie Murray’s face is still a patriotic pale blue colour.


#152

Vika having a go at Inverdale :ok_hand:


#153

Seem to remember him being on fairly good behaviour for him. But still, ahahahahaha!


#154

Not sure if any of these guys are very good. Isn’t isner that fella who had that week long match or something


#155

Have they not mentioned it yet? If not then it’s coming soon.


#156

Spanish commentary barely talk unless it’s Nadal. Pretty much just analyse the game at the end of the game and in between sets a bit


#157

That sounds great. I’m not kidding when I say there was a women’s match last week where the commentators (both women) started discussing what a good girlfriend one of the players would make for some lucky bloke.


#158

they’re two boring big servers and i’m boycotting the match
hope Anderson wins though cos he seems alright and Isner’s a known Trump voter


#159

^this


#160

Anderson is like some kind of non giving up tennis guy
