The sport should die when Roger retires anyway, no point in continuing

Andre Agassi didn't give a poo poo about tennis and he was cool and bad rear end. Now he's fat which is even cooler.

we should not hold others up to the level of Andre aAgassi, a man who became rad with both long hair and no hair. a feat not matched by anyone in any profession.

drat it Jo

I think she played too much tennis. She got into the Birmingham final and the Eastbourne semi and that is probably too much tennis.

This truly is the time for old farts.

We've got Venus Williams likely to win the championship, and a chance of Roger Federer playing an American man in the finals. I'm not sure what year it is.

2007 Slam singles champions:
Australian - Federer, Serena
French - Nadal, Henin
Wimbledon - Federer, Venus
US - Federer, Henin

2017:
Australian - Federer, Serena
French - Nadal, Ostapenko
Wimbledon - (probably) Federer, (maybe) Venus.

If Henin hadn't retired maybe we could've had the full time-travel experience.

I think he'll be extra vigilant today considering Berdych had match point on him in Miami. Federer in three and Cilic in four.

edit: Querrey actually looks a lot more comfortable than Cilic.
