I hope Nadal annihilates Serena's slam tally, get 26+ slams, he'll hit 23 if he wins this US Open, and looks like a great chance to get a couple of slams next year, especially since they did that treatment on his foot in June where they burned the nerve so he doesn't feel as much pain now. The 2024 Paris Olympics are at Roland Garros, so he'll stay very engaged until at least then.

They should have recorded a hundred voices for the automated lines people, because its getting boring hearing the same voice over and over.
Will Ferrell's voice would be very useful, also Jeff Goldblum, Natalie Portman, and you can get just about anyone to agree to do this, and its great for marketing, as people will watch the tennis just to guess which celebrity's voice is calling.
Automated calling is good because the players won't ask for a review, so there is a constant flow of tennis with no interruptions, and less arguments.

Yeah, although Djokovic's Wimbledon victory doesn't count in the Slam Race, because Wimbledon is not open to all nationalities and is therefore not an Open Era Slam.
But he's still the favorite to win the Australian Open, and they'll probably overturn his ban.

Just heard Serena won!, advancing to the third round.

Yeah, man! The crowd is crazy over Serena. It's loudest crowd I've ever heard in a tennis match!

Rafa just won his second round match in four sets after a medical timeout re a freak accident in the fourth set(racquet bounced up and hit him in the nose). Both McEnroe brothers and Fowler said they'd never seen anything like it. Rafa said he was initially a bit dizzy, but feels fine now (after the match).

Just watched Serena’s match against Ajla Tomljanovic—
Serena gave it a great run but she couldn’t pull it out.
Both very gracious—but the crowd was Serena’s all the way…

The crowd was crazy. It’s like, opponent double faults and they’re like “YEEAAAHHHH!”

Very entertaining match...Serena's likely last match (the door sounds 90% closed), and it was the longest match time wise that she ever played at the U.S. Open. She lost the first set 7-5, won the second set 7-6, and lost the third set 6-1, with some long games in the third set despite the game score. Serena's journey in this tournament stops in the third round.

I don’t really follow tennis but I appreciate greatness and Serena is just class—all the way
I think there were 6 or 7 match points in the last game—she just wouldn’t go down easily
I felt sorry for Ajla Tomljanovic—the crowd was her opponent as much as Serena—
She won and was sort of treated like a step sister—but was very gracious when allowed to speak
She had poise enough to just play her game so hope she has a good Open…

Serena never gives her opponents any credit when they beat her, tonight she said Ajla played a little better than me, it's always about her. Serena was huffing and puffing on some points, she can't compete with the younger players at 40 yrs old. Serena's hard work paid off for her, amazing champion over the years.
