    Any thoughts on the All England Lawn Tennis Championships?

    Rafa and Djoker are through to the third round. Will they meet in the final? There's a long way to go, but I expect Djoker to get there, I'm not confident in Rafa (although I'm rooting for him big time).

    Swiantek may be unbeatable.

    She did lose a set today, though I still think she's the favorite to win.

    My first thought is that it really bugs me when the Brits insist on calling it “the championships”. Kind of like they call the British Open “the open”.

    Djoker has a smooth and easy path to the finals. Banning all the Russians has greatly helped his chances, and I don’t know who could beat him. I would prefer anyone else…
    While I am a huge Rafa fan, I am not sure he can get his grass game back to the level needed to compete for the crown since he hasn’t played on grass in so many years. His game looked pretty beatable today, but hopefully he is improving.

    Apologies for misspelling Iga Swiatek (pronunciation has an n sound).

    Rooting for Coco Gauff big time! John Isner, too, but I expect he shot his was in beating Andy Murray.
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    OK, so Swiatek is NOT unbeatable. Sadly (for me), Coco Gauff is also out.

    Iím taking Djoker to win it all but pulling for Rafa.

    Fritz makes it to the quarters, where he will face Nadal. Djokovic faces Sinner. It definitely feels like Djokerís tourney to lose.

    I’m really finding Nick Kyrgios to be a wanker.

    No doubt about it! At the same time he is very entertaining. I thought it was ironic that they had McCenroe commenting on his last win...

    Potentially an understatement.

    From afar, I always thought McEnroe was a good guy who semi-strategically lost his temper on the court.

    I do not think the same about Nick.

    Yea, that was really funny and kind of strange to me. However, I do agree with McEnroe for once. Not a fan of Nick.

    I saw the first set or so of today's match and he was actually behaving. Did he blow up later in the match? I am not a fan of his. Respect the game, and respect your opponent. He seems to have a ton of talent and almost makes it look easy at times. The drama is not necessary.

    Kinda late in that game on that one! He's had the rep of being a wanker for quite a while, though he has stepped it up even more lately.

    Djoker is getting all he wants today from Sinner.

    Sinner is choking. Djerkovich in 5 sets (probably).

    Nadal appears to have some sort of injury to his core. He's lost all his service velocity in the second set and is struggling to get to balls. Already went to the trainer for it, but it appears as though he might be done.

    Into a fifth set. No one can question Rafa's guts.

    Yeah, I am amazed he is still in this!
