    It wasn’t just dead fish. It was SIDEWAYS dead fish. It was hilarious.

    I TOTALLY don’t understand why none of the tennis commentariat is willing to criticize ND HARSHLY for endangering ball people, fans etc with his violent temper tantrums. NO ONE (and I’m looking at you, Lindsay!) was willing to step up and say how awful his behavior was in his bronze medal match at the Olympics when he threw his racquet at close range at the net post right in front of the ump and was just lucky that no one was hit by the damn thing. Not to mention when he threw his racquet INTO THE STANDS! Did anyone within earshot criticize him? Crickets. Sure, there was discussion about

    Good grief, I wasn’t matchmaking! I’m fully aware of what Zverev has been credibly accused of and that Alja T is Berrettini’s girlfriend. I was just thinking of the visuals.

    Wow, Emma R was so great today. She certainly looked like the Real Thing. I’d love for her to win it all. As long as doesn’t ruin her life. And, just to get super shallow: she and Berrettini or Zverev would make an amazingly hot winning pair.

    I only saw the last few minutes of the match, but Evert and the male Chris (forget his last name) were saying that Rogers basically had a complete mental meltdown and forgot how to play. They said it was one of those nightmares that every player has at some point. They seemed to attribute the score to how poorly Rogers was playing more than Raducanu being outstanding. That said, ER seems like a lovely, lovely girl, and I hope she is actually a new star at the top of the game, because she would be great to have around.

    Totally agree that Osaka should have been treated according to the rules. WTF is that about, Alison Hughes!?!! However, I have a big sad that both my girls, Sloane and Naomi, went out. I still have Mugu and Petra K to root for, but still ... sniff.

    Way to go, Young Fella, er .... Alcaraz! Seriously, he did a great job. (And, honestly, I think working with only the rather taciturn Cahill kept Gilbert in check.) He’s a lovely kid. I saw him interviewed the day before he was to play Rafa in ... was it Barcelona or Madrid this year? I forget. He was delightful. He got his clock cleaned, but it clearly didn’t discourage him too much. Very sad that Sloane couldn’t advance. She has SUCH a gorgeous game. It would be awesome if she could find her way back to the top. That said, I’ve always liked Kerber. Glad Muguruza took

    One of the big drags about watching any ESPN broadcast is its RELENTLESS dedication to hyping the planned story line. It’s so tiresome. I’m pretty sure that’s what led to Mary Carillo leaving ESPN many years ago. I’m honestly not sure how Mary Jo F and Darren C manage to sidestep joining in on the hype machine. That said, I’m so excited for tonight’s Coco-Sloane match. I hope it’s a good one. It’s just fun to be pumped for a tennis match again. My secret hope is that Barty and Osaka start a rivalry in the finals at this tournament. It could be a thing of beauty for years to com

    What does it say about how much I dislike ND that I won’t be disappointed if ST beats AM?

    Yes, Berrettini should have been on my list above. He seems like a great guy, and heaven knows he’s easy on the eyes. I think this was probably Vania King. I didn’t notice her doing this particular breathy thing, but she has a high, soft voice. However, I did think her commentary was a lot more interesting than most. She actually offered a point-of-view, and raised some points that I hadn’t thought of before. I enjoyed Taylor Townsend’s in-studio work. She’s really likable and articulate. I’m not sure she’s all that insightful, but she was fun. A lot better than Bouchard,

    Coco G said that it was tougher getting it done while traveling internationally every week than you might think, particularly with the vaccines that involved a second shot. And there may have also been issues with age-requirements/limitations in different countries. I was relieved to hear that there wasn’t anti-vaxx sentiment in that family. They seem too solid and reasonable for that, but you never know. But I just am beyond my tether with these idiot athletes (and others) who only think about the possible (very remote) ill consequences to themselves, and are seemingly oblivious to t

    Very likable and a lovely looking game. But he’s got to learn how to win a tournament. I like Thiem and Shapavalov. I also kind of like Medvedev, but he’s not exactly cuddly, and I can see he wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea. I was also very disappointed by his non-appearance in the Aussie Final. There’s also Sinner, Musetti and the aforementioned Korda. So there are some candidates. But, yes, Zverev needs to go away until he is thoroughly investigated and cleared (although I suspect that part is unlikely.) And Tsitsipas needs to lose the pathetic reliance on Daddy and
