    Default Tennis

    Some exciting tennis being played at the US Open. Rooting for Madison Keys on the woman's side, and Daniil Medvedev on the men's side.

    I used to love Tennis back in the 80's. I saw the interview where he trolled the crowd and it was great. May have to pull for the guy

    Great time of year...

    College Football

    NFL starts

    MLB season coming down to the wire

    And the US Open (especially the night matches)

    The Canadian player Andreescu is another player to watch on the women’s side.


    Kyrgios & Medvedev are both not only insanely talented, but both are volatile...always good for the game.

    I took tennis lessons when I was 12 years old and I've loved the game ever since. Rooted for Jimmy Connors and Chris Evert way back in the day. Love me some Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi on the men's side and I've always rooted for the Williams sisters (especially Serena) on the women's side. Serena still needs one more Grand Slam singles title to tie Margaret Smith Court for the all-time record with 24. She's lost in 3 GS finals since returning from the birth of her first child. Pretty amazing that she won her first GS singles title at the US Open way back in 1997.

    1999 US Open was Serena’s first Major Title

    1997 was Hingis’ first US Open title.

    Definitely not a Serena fan

    It is a great sport...I still play 3 to 4 times a week.

    My bad. I actually meant to type 1999, believe it or not. We were on vacation in Maui and my daughter (who will turn 22 on Tuesday) had just celebrated her 2nd birthday. Serena defeated Hingis in that 1999 final.

    Osaka was knocked out by Bencic earlier today. The women's draw is opening up nicely for Serena. Let's see if she can finally win #24.

    She should...there’s only one player left that can beat her like a drum..and that’s Andreescu...Svitolina has a punchers chance, but the rest who still remain...can’t handle her game.
