pretty amazing level of play for a soon-to-be 38 year old.

the youngster Nadal turned 33 last month...

Best I ever saw Halep play.

@panzade,
True, but Serena was terrible. Unforced errors everywhere and then she got conservative and Halep was in complete control. Love Serena but she's going to have to play a full schedule if she wants to be in match shape against the big dogs.

What happened these last two weeks was that Williams had a table that was perfectly set leading up to the final. Despite, playing in the bracket labeled the “Group of Death,” Williams was able to avoid the six Grand Slam champions in the group (Kerber, Maria Sharapova, Garbiñe Muguruza, Ashleigh Barty, Samantha Stosur and Svetlana Kuznetsova). The final against 27-year-old Halep, the No. 7 seed, was Williams’ first match of the two-week tournament against a player considered to be on her level.

WOW!

My ears sure perk up when I hear this!

This is exceptionally poor performance from the tournament, they need to figure out a way to do better.

@hawkeye10,
It wasn't the tournament, it was a series of fortunate events for Williams. All of those top players ended up losing early in the draw. If the draw had run true to the seedings, Serena would have faced several tough matches.

@Region Philbis,
That was a barnburner at 11 all. Fed has to hold to create the first ever fifth set tiebreaker at Wimbledon.

@engineer,
The best final ever. (The first set lasted with 58 minutes longer than the entire women's final the day before.)

@Walter Hinteler,
I don't know why people get so excited about Federer-Nadal. Yes, they had some amazing matches ten years ago. If you want the best rivalry on grass today, you clearly want Federer-Djokovic, maybe two of the best grass players of all time. If you want the best rivalry on clay, you want Nadal-Djokovic, probably the two best clay players of all time. I think it is amazing how Djokovic flies under the radar when Federer and Nadal are around.

@engineer,
It’s all about how hard the name is to pronounce. That’s the reason… And I’m sticking to it. Besides his nickname is joker after all.

Serena makes a serious statement at the US Open in stomping Sharapova (who to be fair has not been the same since her doping suspension.)

From the Guardian (and their excellent tennis coverage)
Quote:
Sharapova knew that high-risk tactics were her only chance against a stronger, faster and more intelligent opponent, but they were responsible for her countless errors throughout.

Great Australian Open despite the original COVID snafus. Osaka makes a serious statement with her win. It seems she is pulling away from the pack and making an argument for being the future of the WTA. Djokovic continues to make his case for being the GOAT with his 9th title in Australia which is just ridiculously dominant in an era what includes two of the greatest players of all time as opponents.

I don’t often watch tennis that much but I had to see Djokovic play. He was fantastic and kept pushing hard. Well worth watching.

@Ragman,
The guy is just a machine. He might not have the very best forehand, backhand, serve, volley, etc but he has one of the best of everything. He just doesn't have any weaknesses in his game, he does everything well.

@engineer,
Furthermore, it looked as though Medvedev in that first set was going to offer a an even-Steven match but he unraveled after the first round. He needs some work on his mental toughness.
