They are going to be playing into their late 40s just to stop anyone thinking about taking more Grand Slams than them.

Successful Wimbledon for the GOAT. Stopped Mr. One Surface Wonder getting just 1 away and Djok still 4 away. Ubercool

I'm just surprised that the GOAT is still able to compete at such a high level. Took a guy almost 6 years his junior the full distance yesterday.

Even if fed won and got to 21, I couldn't see him add more after that. Nadal will pick up French every year for a few years and novak a couple each year for the next few years if they stay healthy, both surpassing 21 majors when all is done.

No decision yet.

I live in Sandwich and was due to rent our house for the Open out but pulled the plug on it when c19 started to kick off. Most people I know locally have done similar and think it'll be canned which will a huge loss for the area, council had just spent a fortune upgrading the railway station to handle the crowds.

WTF was Novak thinking about doing the tournament with loads of crowd next to each other and partying after. He does nothing to help his off court Rep

He held his own exhibition tournament series (Adria Tour) with events in Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Montenegro. Crowds of 4,000+ at each event, no social distancing, massive parties at each stop - and now a bunch of players who participated (Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and Victor Troicki) all tested positive for Covid-19.

Also against competing at the US Open this year if he can’t bring his entourage with him.

Absolute bellend.

Was going to post in the last purchase thread but thought it might get a bit more love in here. Agassi was a bit of a hero of mine as a kid and went a bit crazy with the Challenge Court reissue this week…
