2016 is the last time there was non-Nadal final (when Djokovic won his first, over Andy Murray).


When Nadal makes a Roland Garros final, it’s almost a foregone conclusion he’ll be holding the trophy, so there’s less reason for people to watch.

I’m sure that 2013 semifinal was that intense five-setter between Rafa and Novak.

 

Someone on Twitter posted that the tennis media themselves are sabotaging their own sport with the big 3 continued barrage. It makes the fans care less or want to see anyone win the majors but those 3. 

 

Again the tennis media should be [!@#$%^&*] embarrassed that tennis fans had no clue who Dominic Thiem was a few years back at the US Open. He had been on the tour for years.

Super short-sighted as usual. They make a ton of bank off of Roger especially, but that well is about to run dry, and they don’t have that many backups, especially on the men’s side. The networks lavish airtime on male American players who just aren’t in contention for majors and probably never will be.
 

By the way, what ever happened to Jared Donaldson?

And guess who Tennis Channel had on this morning? Tiafoe and Querrey  

 

Ha! I also wondered about Jared. He had surgery over a year ago and then got married. He was so robotic like Fritz.

Link to his wedding photo. He actually got married first then surgery.

Lol. The gasp from the audience… He should have been immediately defaulted and suspended for that.

The knee injury took care of the suspension.

 

He is ranked #987 or so

Good for Felix! 
 

People are saying, oh Roger needs more time. Time isn’t exactly a friend when you’re an athlete pushing 40 (who just underwent two knee surgeries).


But we shall see! I never count him out.
