Wow at Halep coming through strong over Muguruza! She wants that French Open title!

 

She's gonna have to fight Sloane for it, LOL.  I hope to see a good battle and not what I just saw in the 2nd SF.

It’s going to be tough unless Simona completely checks out. Simona looked DIALED IN today. But both are good movers and defenders. Simona will have to protect that AWFUL second serve.

 

I love Sloane, but I want Simona to finally win one.

Simona is meant to be a bridesmaid.  Sloane very seldom fails in these moments.  Her USO trophy is ready for a friend.  

Ha!  Go Sloane!!

 

I can't stand Darren Cahill. I was shocked at how well Simona played against Muga.

 

Keys only knows to hit the ball hard and has no plan B.

So it's Nadal vs Thiem for the Men's Title.

I'm not holding out much hope, but it would be absolutely delightful if Thiem were to win and finally put an end to the endless row of victories for Nadal in Paris. It's becoming quite tedious.

James Blake got played. The kumbaya BS doesn’t work with the NYPD. (I suppose he could still exercise his right to sue?)

Yet Tennis Channel and NBC kept pimping Nadal boring ass wins. I have been over him for years and never cared for his boring ass game. Jim Courier has been trashing Thiem's game and how he didn't have a chance against Nadal way before the QF's ever started and John McEnroe said he didn't have a chance of winning if he played like he did today. If you aren't Nadal, Roger, Andy or Joker TC/ESPN and others don't feel you exist. There a lot of tennis fans trashing TC this week about it and poof they interview Thiem out of the blue.

 

On a side note...Twitter followers asked Brad Gilbert why American Women's Tennis was more successful than the men and he had no answer.....LMAO.......

James Blake is too nice that's why he got played.

Sloane is doing some Radwanska-level pushing, but she has power on her shots. And she just doesn’t miss.

 

EDIT: ...but can switch to breathtaking offense on a dime.

 

Just saw Coco Gauff won the junior ladies’ French Open earlier. The African-American women are really dominating.
