    Tsitsipas couldn't get into Djokovic's service games, but he's still good enough that on any day, he can challenge the the top players.

    Kinda. I never said he was.

    Trying to have you understand why he didn't fall out just yet.

    They don't pick and choose who is a top 5 player. You get to top 5 by having great results in ATP 1000/GS events. Not hard to understand but with the way he's struggling now at those events, he won't be top 5 much longer

    That’s why the ranking system is shit. That’s also the reason why Rafa was able to stay top two for the longest time. That and the lopsided number of clay masters events And clay events in general.

    Nick Kyrgios with the Bobby Knight meltdown today. I hope he enjoys his vacation from playing tennis.

    There's 6 hardcourt masters too, and he does well at those too.

    Just saw that. I had been checking the scores online.

    Turned on the TV now, and saw they're starting the 3rd set.

    FED served rotten that entire 3rd set.

    Down 2 match points in the 3rd set tiebreaker, and he pulls out the win in the tiebreaker.

    This is why he entered Italy. For moments like these.

    I don't know if he's going to win the tourney, but it's a great feeling when to beat a top player, who had also had some recent wins against him, at a Masters 1000 tournament.

    Tsitsipas is next. It's going to be another tough one.

    Just have to say this. Grandpa Fed has played seven more years after one of his main and contemporary (younger) rivals Roddick retired, has won three slams since as well as a few more masters events and today he outlasted two younger rivals playing two matches in the same day. This guy is an enigma.

    I guess I spoke too soon. Better this than retire on court.

    They need to just ban him permanently and be done. He's a fucking embarrassment on multiple levels .
