3-2 down and Nadal breaks him next game, holds serve and then broke him again. Irresistible. 4 straight games of absolute champion perfection

Would much rather Nadal be the slam record holder.
I think Djokovic is the easy favourite to hold the slam record.

Federer is on 20 and almost done.

Nadal will be on 18 when he wins tonight. Since 2010, his record away from the French is 0 Australian Opens, 0 Wimbledons, 2 US Opens.

Djokovic is a year younger than Nadal and has the best all-round game to win on all surfaces.

Nadal may get to 21, but I'd pick Djokovic to reach 22.

Much rather Djokovic take Wimbledon, then Nadal US OPEN. Nadal then takes French open to match, while Joker takes Australian Open.

The Queen not appilcable in QUEENSland?
WA: last Monday in September
QLD: first Monday in October (coincides with Labour Day in ACT, NSW & SA), usually the day after NRL Grand Final

Little known fact that Queensland changes names depending on whether a King or Queen is the current monarch.
Queensland will revert to being called Kingsland when the Queen dies.

These Frenchman don't deserve a major tournament. Struggling to fill seats to Nadal in a final!
Have had to get staff to disguise themselves as spectators to try fill empty seats.
Women's final was worse. Do they just not like/appreciate tennis?

I thought they named it Kingsland after Wally Lewis

One more Wimbledon for Fed
As with Serena, as each slam passes, it's getting closer to impossible that either wins another slam.

At 37-38 years of age, the drop off will be quick. This Wimbledon is probably Fed's last realistic chance.

How can you support Nadal then say something stupid like this? I'd be happy if neither ever win another slam.

How is Nadal winning the French every year consistent with wanting someone new to come through?
I’ve never liked Federer. I respect him yes but I’ll never want him winning more. Plus I want Novak or Nadal to get 20+.

I don’t find Thiem interesting. Tsitsipas on the other hand, yes please

Amazing. I thought Nadal had withstood the best from Thiem in the 1st set and would win in straight sets.

I suspect Nadal would still be a very strong favourite with the bookies. A Thiem win would be fantastic for the sport.
