Djoker finishes it off in the 4th. Sublime performance by him. When hes at the top of his game I've never seen better and thats no shot at Federer who is also in a class by himself when he was playing at his peak. He can't overlook Tsitsipas but we could be looking at a special year for him.

Hopefully he doesn't have a let down and wins the final getting his 19th. Having said that beating Nadal on the red dirt is a big point in the GOAT discussion

He's done it twice now. Almost as big as winning each major teice which hasnt been done in the modeen era.

Novak comes grom 2 sets down to beat Tsitsipas. Wins his 19th Major. Double GS winner and sets up a shot to win the GS this year. Wimbledon might be the toughest challenge. Short turnaround after a grueling Semifinal and Final to win the French.

Anything can happened but he seems to be locked in right now and he has a very good chance of a calendar grand slam.

I've always been team Fed, but Novak is going to end up being the GOAT in all likelihood.

Nadal withdraws from Wimbledon and the Olympics.


But Federer is back, does he have anything left in the tank? Djoker got to be the favorite for his 20th but will he be ready after grinding out the W at Roland Garros

Wow, Marylander Frances Tiafoe beats French Open finalist Tsitsipas (#3 seed) in the first round of Wimbledon.

The British really take their Wimbledon serious, at least well I was, probably due to being outside London.

Serena slips in her first round match and has to retire with an injury.  in the previous match on that court, the same thing happened to the guy playing Federer.

Zero American players in the quarterfinals, on both the Men's and Women's sides, although Seb Korda looks like maybe the best young men's player since Roddick.

It's over. 

 

Hard to see anyone else stopping DJoker from getting his 20th.   If that happens he could potentially  get the GS and the 21st at the US Open.

Nadal is playing in DC's Citi Open next month, the first time for any of the big 3.

Djokovic lost to Zverev in the Olympic semifinals, so no possibility of a golden slam for him.  He can still be the first man to win the regular grand slam since Rod Laver in 1969 if he wins the US Open.
