ProfessorX1

Djokovic’s timing on the ball is getting worse.


InOurMomsButts420

Cornet seemed to be melting down in the first set. Her injury boiled it over.


Elonmuskishuman

Alcaraz the youngest man to reach the 4th round since Tomic


CoolstorySteve

Dimitrov had such a freeeee path to the semi final if he didn't mess up his hamstring. He definitely beats Norrie if they play each other.


Plane_Highlight3080

Don’t put salt in the wound :( there’s no news on the condition either. His last 18 months at GSs have been a disaster


Informal-Pin2603

Anyone know if Stefanos reckless shot into the crowd had more velocity than the Novak US Open one?


afccrazy

It is more about intent than velocity. Tsitsipas had no reason to hit that shot the way he did. It was not even a mishit. His purposely hit that into the crowd in anger. Then he tried hit at NK.


Informal-Pin2603

I was half joking, I remember seeing a funny youtube vid somebody trying to calculate the velocity on Novaks from video evidence. I wonder which philosopher Stefanos was channeling with that one. And then he called Nick evil lmao


afccrazy

I thought you were but then I didn’t see any sarcastic emoji


think2xbrother

Deranged fella he is. And then to make those personal comments in the post presser, glad he’s justly eliminated by the one and only


afccrazy

I would say both are idiot.


think2xbrother

Thing about Kyrgios is he actually speaks a lot of sense when he’s calm. Things he said at the presser were that of a sane man and not someone whose bitter like stefanos


afccrazy

Yeah He does this intentionally . Maybe to put off his opponent while tsitsipas anger is more genuine


Elonmuskishuman

Maybe


Omegatron64

Sinner, Goffin, Norrie. Who's stopping Novak from making his 4th consecutive Wimbledon final?


Dark_Vengence

Sinner is much improved and could beat him. He has the best chance out of all those guys.


afccrazy

You mean before the F? I would say no one. Rafa is the closest among who can beat him. Even in the final novak would heavy favourite


JohnGenericDoe

It would take a miracle for Rafa to win... but he's already performed two this year so


afccrazy

I am hoping is rafa would be able to repeat 2018 form in the final and at the same time hoping novak make errors on cruical points then rafa has a chance.


JohnGenericDoe

Rafa always has a chance


Mysonking

Nobody


Sad_Consideration_49

i doubt it will happen but i say sinner has the best chance.


steuer2teuer

Not sure what kind of 4D chess Tim is playing by letting Djokovic win, but i trust it will somehow pay dividends twice over. Looking forward to him reaping the results during the hard court season (or grass season 2023). Van Goathoven is here to stay.


TheUltimatePoet

He wants to open strongly with a full calendar grand slam.


[deleted]

Looking at the draw, a Djokovic v Nadal Wimbledon final seems pretty likely at this point? Yet there’s not much hype around it.


_tyrannosauruswrekt_

Because being honest big servers always have a punchers chance at Wimbledon. Cilic, Raonic, Kevin Andersen, etc... have all made finals here. And Nadal will likely have to face Botic and Kygrios; who has beaten him here before and is in very good form.


thcm123

As a Rafan, just taking it one match at a time.


JohnGenericDoe

Here we are, we are in Wimbledon


Omegatron64

Yep. Even if we get past Botic (who's playing fairly well on grass), Fritz then Kyrgios (barring an upset by Nakashima/De Minaur) will be a tougher back-to-back challenge.


Luck1492

Ok, predictions for tomorrow: de Minaur d. Garin in 4 Neither has had an especially difficult road, but neither has played exceptionally well either. I’m going to go with ADM here because of his bigger serve and better all-around game, but I do think Garin plays well enough to grab a set. Kyrgios d. Nakashima in 3 Kyrgios is absolutely feeling it. Nakashima may not be as stirred by his antics as Tsitsipas, but I think Kyrgios will be too in the flow to care. There’s a chance Kyrgios gets in his own head if the match drags on, but I think he’s going to hold it together enough to win in straights. Fritz d. Kubler in 3 Fritz has been at his best through the tournament, and I don’t expect that to dip against Kubler. Kubler has been on court significantly more, and last time out played a five-setter versus Sock. I think Fritz’s freshness and better play will lead him to a relatively easy sweep. Nadal d. van de Zandschulp in 5 I think this is going to be our relative surprise of the day. Botic at his best can be a total nightmare to face on serve, and he’s been pulling up that form here. While he didn’t have a great showing a last time out against Nadal, I think he’ll have learned from that outing and will come back with a fire for vengeance. Unluckily for him, Nadal is Nadal. Botic will absolutely play well enough to grab multiple sets, but Nadal will ultimately seal the match on his own racket, because he’s Nadal. Tomljanovic d. Cornet in 3 Tomljanovic has been quite stellar so far, and Cornet, while she did beat Swiatek, hasn’t actually been quite that great in my opinion. While Cornet won’t be a pushover, I expect Tomljanovic to pull through. Rybakina d. Martic in 3 Besting Qinwen Zheng in straights last round makes me feel that Rybakina is in great form. But so is Martic, and she’s beaten 2 seeded players. This could go either way, but I feel that Rybakina’s serve has been slightly more stable than Martic’s. Halep d. Badosa in 3 This is another tossup. Halep is a former champion but she’s a bit older, while Badosa is on the up and up, and she’s looking to make a deep run here for the first time. I think that Badosa is playing great, but Halep’s experience will prove the edge in his matchup. Anisimova d. Tan in 2 Anisimova has been on fire. Aside from a slowish start against Gauff, she has been playing superb tennis. Tan has played well too, but she will be no match for Anisimova.


Dark_Vengence

As an aussie I think kubler has next to no chance against fritz. Just hope he can win a set at least. Cornet and ajla could go either way. It depends who wants it more. Tan's journey will end.


jeffwingersballs

> Fritz has been at his best through the tournament Technically true as he's the last remaining man to not drop a set > Nadal d. van de Zandschulp in **5** My heart! At least I've been warned.


JohnGenericDoe

Four Aussies in the QFs? Hell yeah. Especially if ADM can take out you-know-who. Apparently they've never played in a tournament


_Crazy_Asian_

Cant help myself ... The sexy muscular Italian may have withdrawn, but then, the shy nerdy lean Italian steps up ... Oh these Italian boys ...


Dark_Vengence

Ajla is playing better now without the distraction.


Mysonking

Stop objectifying men


_Crazy_Asian_

I know this is coming, lol. When people talked about how they skip clay season because of the absent of Matteo, or so often we see ppl in the sub talk about Rafa's ass ... You tell them the same thing as well? I admire both of them as great tennis players, with wonderful personality as well, but doesnt mean I only admire them sexually ... Maybe you are peojecting too much to become this sensitive? Easy ...


Mysonking

I forgot /s


TarcuttaShade

So per the post on the sub's front page, the centenary celebration brought together 26 grand slam winners, who've won a combined total of 197 singles slams. Have there been gatherings like this in the past with either a greater number of champions or a greater slam total?


[deleted]

no rain scheduled for this week in wimbledon area! will be nice and hot. hopefully it won't get too hot for rafa like in the AO QF vs shapo. it looks like it will be hot but not too hot. i hope the grass becomes even more chewed up and turns into green clay after no more middle sunday off-day for the grass.


arvaname

Just spoke w/ tim briefly: He is hally about his performance. He knows what he has to work on. But he’s taken only positives. I said that while his oath is broken, my faith in him remains only somewaht diminshed. He saud he hopes to play newport. there, id be near, and could see him in person for the first time since coronavirus. he said novak was vert nice guy in locker room. he said he didnt feel too bad ablut the loss and only wished that he coulda gotten some ranking points.


_Crazy_Asian_

Did you tell him this sub LOVES him? He has a lot of new fans here :)


think2xbrother

Does sinner stand a chance against nole realistically? Does anyone even think sinner will be victorious?


MrPeanutbutter14

Now even Timmy and Carlos are out. Dread it, run from it, the Big 3 arrives all the same.


buddybonesbones

Big 2 :(


jeffwingersballs

But Federer did arrive >!at the pre-match legends ceremony!<


Nabucodonosor89

Really strange how nobody talks about Halep. For me she is easily the favorite to win Wimbledon again. She won it the last time she played the tournament and she is playing well enough on grass this season to win it again, especially now that we have a lot of inexperienced players remaining in the 2nd week of a slam (including Jabeur, who never made a semifinal).


[deleted]

she's the favorite IF she gets past badosa. badosa has had a better previous 12 months so she is the favorite on paper.


Nabucodonosor89

Halep beat Badosa in 2 sets a few weeks ago in Madrid. It was not even close.


Chosen1gup

Halep wins slam: 😎 Patrick claims credit: 🤮


jeffwingersballs

Still worth it to see Halep win.


follow-spy

Do you guys think Jack sock has any chances? He seemed well composed and in good place


mickstep

A chance at what? He's out.


jeffwingersballs

He's playing in doubles and mixed doubles. He's got a chance.


follow-spy

lol I thought he was still in it 😂


Awilltobemerry

He is still in the 2 doubles competitions


lizlemon222

He is still in mixed doubles with coco


mickstep

It's OK you still have Fritz and Nakashima.


dannylenwinn

Did you guys enjoy the matches today, Sinner vs Alcaraz and Djokovic vs Tim? I also would like to tell you all (on the dawn of Tim van Goat) that Beethoven and Mozart loves everyone, and loves you all (here).


jeffwingersballs

I enjoyed both of those matches. I wish Tim van Rijthoven could have kept it competitive in the last two sets.


shyaminator96

Of course kyrgios is doing a YouTube live interview on his channel rn about how the media portrays him so wrongly lol


XURiN-

It's an old interview from earlier in the year actually. Not sure why it's being broadcast live.


DzingisKan000

Thats a scam promoting some shitty coin/nft, not even him tho. The video is from a podcast he did a while ago.


aSwanson96

Man I want Nadal vs Djokovic so bad. If Nadal were to win… first AO win in 13 years, first Wimbledon in 12 years, it would just be so amazing, but of course, Djokovic is so scary on grass


felinechromosome

I'm really worried about Nadal getting by Fritz. Fritz has had that last 6 months where if he wins the whole thing, you're like "oh yeah that makes sense".


jeffwingersballs

I'm always rooting for Nadal so his win is my biggest hope as a fan followed by a Djokovic/Nadal final. Also hoping Nakashima and Fritz can push it further. Kyrgios is hype too as well as the promise of Sinner. The final 12 have* alot of story lines.


GymandRave

Kyrgios will make semis barring a massive meltdown/upset


jeffwingersballs

That's not impossible with Kyrgios.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Nastypav12

Not sure but the game that she plays of going for winners early doesn't require a slim build.


Team-LH-44

Only Rafa can beat Novak


Omegatron64

Eh if Kyrgios were to keep it together to make the final he'd have a fair chance. It's just a matter of who wants it more: Nick to keep his often-flaunted undefeated streak vs Djokovic alive, or Djokovic to finally shut him up given they only played in 2017? Big if of course. Only 50% of the way there.


SeparatePromotion236

Fine…to buy into the whole Timmy the goat thing. Think Federer siphoned back his powers at the Centenary celebration when he saw Rafa and Novak and decided he’s coming back to give them a lesson? :D


Th3_Gruff

Does anyone have a good link or list of links to discussion on this subreddit of the Djokovic AO drama?

redmilk7

It actually means [his surname] sand scallops XD


jeffwingersballs

I'll shloooop the pronunciation all i want.


Sad-Insurance9818

I do quite like the tennis podcast, but increasingly I find it to consist of opinions from Catherine (which generally I agree with) followed by Matt and David saying ‘oh yeah I agree’. It’s a shame there isn’t really any televised reaction or analysis after most matches, like we just get 2 minutes of Sue Barker after a big match on the BBC to cover a 5 set match before cutting to casualty or something. Where else is good for a bit or interesting analysis? Podcast or video?


ExcuseYou-What

In Matt's defense, I feel like he offers, by far, the best analysis of matches and what's going on but he doesn't want to step on either of Catherine or David's toes because he doesn't have that authority, so there's just a lot of untapped ideas there. But I have to agree that the quality has kind of faded overall this year and it seems to be fatigue or overplanning (the new "Friends" thing seems to be taking a lot out of them). There have been quite a few matches not being watched or being summarized very quickly, meaning certain people's achievements are being very underappreciated in context. However, for now, you're not going to get another podcast that posts this regularly about tennis as much as they are that also dovetails with access to press conferences, players, and other notable guests.


queenofhades

Monday Match Analysis and Tennis and Bagels both have tactical analysis but they don’t release episodes as regularly as the Tennis Podcast In the US, tennis channel has a post match show Tennis Channel Live and they also release it as a podcast but not during slams other than RG


[deleted]

[удалено]


jeffwingersballs

The Tennis Channel needs to let Gill Gross have carte blanche with the highlights so he can do video breakdowns even if they put it behind the TC+ paywall.


eib1000

Today at Wimbledon is a good analysis show


Sad-Insurance9818

Not sure if serious


eib1000

I like the show. You get literally pro’s analysis so not sure what kore you’d want


CHEFjay11

Tennis podcast yesterday had a great show regarding Tsitsipas and Kyrgios press conferences and their questions to both players. I liked their feedback regarding the drama too.


eib1000

It’s the best tennis poddy out there by far


Environmental-Cold24

Tim great lesson. First time against a player of the big three and at the 4th round Wimbledon at Centre Court. He was fully concentrated till he won that second set, after that he took back some gas. Novak on the other hand knows what to do after losing a set, and that is not taking back gas but giving extra. He didnt just break Tim in games but mentally with that who never refound his pace from the second set. But you have to experience that to know it. Hope they meet again and curious to see where Tim stands then.


InsideAdidas

Djokevic will probably win 32-36 GS in his career. #21 Wimbledon 2022 (95%) #22 AO 2023 (90%) #23 Wimbledon 2023 (91%) #24 USO 2023 ((90%) #25 AO 2024 (90%) #26 Wimbledon 2024 (87%) #27 USO 2024 (85%) #28 AO 2025 (80%) #29 Wimbledon 2025 (90%) #30 USO 2025 (80%) #31 AO 2026 (80%) #32 Wimbledon 2026 (80%)


Mysonking

You are right on One point. Novak want Roger Record in Wimby. Once hé catches that and he has most Alana ( e.g. Nadal retires) he Will be done.


Creative_Button_8519

First time watching tennis?


Luck1492

To hit 32-36 he’d have to win 12 more slams. Let’s say he’s playing at the highest level until 40. That gives him 20ish more chances to win 12-16 more slams, assuming the COVID stuff is gone by next year or so. Even if Nadal drastically drops off, this seems *very* unlikely.


Max0699

Finally this Tim van Goathoven meme can die.


jeffwingersballs

Die? You think this is over? This is just the beginning.

Don’t curse him like we did Radu

Koeienvanger

Hahaha the geit will live on in our hearts


shyaminator96

Nah, Tim van Goathoven will win USO without dropping a set


eib1000

Just like Emma. But everyone says it was a fluke


Husskies

Jannik vs Novak is gonna be one juicy match if Jannik plays like he's played since last week!


zombiezebra1990

It's 3-1 at best for Djokovic.


Creative_Button_8519

At worst? You’re saying Djokovic won’t drop more than a set. 3-1 at best for Sinner


jack198820

Stefan Djokovic been up late owning that trampoline

jack198820

Novak returning interview questions, so clutch


oneflou

I like how every single interview they make novak tells the story of how he was watching wimbledon when he was five. Twice today already haha


GoofyderHund

But realistically, the interview questions are repetitive and boring.


mbaileys

I honestly hope van rijthoven is not having a mental breakdown now. This guy did a great tour. Just go home and train for next tour and you'll be fine.


Dropshot12

I'm sure he's doing just fine with his $238k and 1 set off the goat.


dunkerpup

Agassi won in 92 Nole


escherbach

omg he was wrong by one year. in fact since his birthday is 22 May, he might have been in same reception year as other 4-year olds in summer 1992 anyway...


dunkerpup

Calm down. He said he remembered Sampras winning in 1992, and it was Agassi. It was a simple mistake, absolutely, I wasn’t haranguing the guy. It was also funny considering he mentioned learning more about tennis history from BJK and wanting to learn more, and the fact he was associated with Agassi in the past. Don’t take it so seriously.


escherbach

He actually said "It has a special place in my heart [Wimbledon], I watched the first tennis match ever on television when I was 4 or 5 years old in Serbia, Pete Sampras won his first ever title, I think it was 92..."


dunkerpup

Yes, that is what he said. In the context of Wimbledon, correct? The question was referencing Wimbledon.


ives09

Did Djokovic get a PR coach??

Broad_Astronaut

It’s quite unfortunate as there won’t be points for Wimbledon but TvR hopefully climbs up rankings and has a great injury free career ahead


earthmarrow

Yeah that's a shame. At least he's getting the sweet sweet cash though, can afford to get a coach etc


xManaf

He doesn't have a coach?!


earthmarrow

Tbf I have no idea, maybe I shouldn't be making that assumption - my point was just that it's so hard for players outside the top 200 to even break even, so he won't have had the resources to build the kind of team that benefits higher ranked players. Hopefully this will help him with that.


vngbusa

So will Djokovic Sinner be Wednesday rather than Tuesday? An extra day of rest. Not sure if they are still keeping Wednesday as solely men’s QF this year?


MattGeddon

No it’ll be Tuesday.


pricklywit

It says there will be men's qf's on Tuesday and Wednesday


sharkhuh

Then probably semi's on Fri, and final on Sunday. So the Tuesday QFs get 2 days rest before the semi.

snahtanoj

Novak didn’t know about the curfew!


PaintingLow2568

What is the reason for the curfew?


snahtanoj

The curfew is due to the planning permission for the roof being subject to a condition that does not allow the temporary plant related to the function of the roof to operate after 11pm. **Temporary plant** > Temporary plant would be located south-west of the Centre Court during the Championship periods. The plant will only be utilised during the Championships. It would be placed behind the indoor tennis facility on land otherwise used for Championship car parking. The temporary plant would consist of 10 air cooled electric chillers, 6 generators, 2 oil storage tanks and a generator switch pump room which will require a total of 1140m2. This would supply chilled water, by a network of pipes to a pump room in the northern façade of Centre Court which will then be pumped to the 14 air handling units housed within the new fixed roof of the Centre Court. One of the 6 generators provided in the temporary plant will supply back-up power for the roof and sports lighting if necessary. A masked green acoustic screen will surround the temporary plant both to diffuse any noise and to ensure that the temporary plant is not visible. **Planning condition** > The temporary plant hereby approved shall only be operated during the Wimbledon Tennis Championship period other than for testing immediately prior to the championships, and shall not be operated prior to 0800 hours or later than 2300 hours or one hour after the finish of the last match on any day, whichever is the earlier. Reason for Condition: In order to protect the amenities of nearby residents. https://democracy.merton.gov.uk/Data/Planning%20Applications%20Committee/20040624/Agenda/2575.pdf

Wow, thank you!!!! 😊


Cereal_for_dinner123

Even djokovic looks a bit troubled by servebots in this tournament. If kyrgios or fritz can somehow make it to the final it could be interesting


Roy1984

Kyrgios isn't a servebot. He is the grass goat.


lMarshl

This is the new meme now lol


xarmetheusx

Kyrgios eats grass for fucking breakfast mate


oneflou

He took the serve of Tim 6 times today...


Cereal_for_dinner123

Yes but Tim was making many unforced errors that a player like kyrgios or fritz or sinner would not make. I was talking about how in the 2nd set djokovic was having a lot of trouble getting Tim’s serve in play


pref1Xed

right and then he proceeded to drop only 3 games in the next 2 sets... Djokovic always improves his returns as the match progresses. Once he starts reading his opponent's serve it's over lol.


jeffwingersballs

ESPN is televising on both ESPN *and* ESPN2! It's about time, but I am very grateful it's happening.
