oh yeah, there is another door watcher.
Once he sees an empty seat, he jumps in. :) :)
I think until those 3 retire, ATP slam should start in the SF: get the 3 conquistadors and randomly select a Lucky Loser to complete the schedule. No need to invite everyone. lol lol lol

Remember when the previous champion only had to play the finals?? :shock:

That was a bad idea. It was great for Margaret Court though. 24 slams.. lol lol..
didn't have to worry about losing in R1 or R2. :)
Serena would be at 50 slams with that system.

I was talking about slams. People count the number of slams.
They'd say Federer 20 slams, Djokovic 15 or whatever the number.. Nadal x slams.. .. The rest is bonus.
I read the other day those 3 share 9 of the last 10 slams or something like that.
With the ladies, there are 9 winners for the last 10 slams. So there, the 3-men's tour. :)

You really don't know the stats for the men, do you?? LOL :lol:

Roger 20, Nadal 18, and The Djoker 15!!

I predict Nadal will pass Roger, and The Djoker will pass them both!!

You can't be the GOAT when you're #3 in the slams!!

Roger will probably play as long as he can; Nadal is hoping his knee will hold up; and The Djoker is swinging for the fences because he's the youngest!!

Federer wants to keep those 2 away from catching up in the slam count. He'll play until he is 65.

I hope that Ace2Ace is watching Novak vs Agut, the so-called lucky#4...

Agut had a bad start (3-0 down, broken right away), and did not recover from that. But after that, there is little between them, and Agut took the second set 6-4. It is now 1-1 in sets, and 2-2 in the 3rd.

Interesting note: third meeting between both in 2019: Agut won the first two....

Sorry but not watching any tennis today. It's my day off. Waiting for the BIG day tomorrow.
We all knew who 3 of the 4 semi finalists would be.
Agut is the Lucky Loser for this time around. I don't think he will be the one in New York.
It will be the 3 usual suspects + another Lucky Loser. :) :) ;)
Those 3 have no competition. It's like the time Navratilova and Evert were playing every WTA final. There was no one to bother them.

Note: Serena is saying she finally found a treatment for her knee and feels no pain anymore. If the knee continues to hold into the US open, it will be Serena + 3 in the SF :) :)

Bautista Agut off to get married and surrender at least half of his hard earned dosh.

He can't complain. He was lucky to occupy the last spot left in the SF since the draw.
The lucky draw is not to run into Nadal, Djokovic or Federer until the SF at the slams. That was Agut this time around. It will be someone else at the USO.
