Think the crowd would be very middle class at Wimbledon so they wouldn't be mad about Novak
Not a hope are they middle class! Upper to inbred upper!
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Novak said when the crowd chants for Fed his brain tricks him into hearing his name instead.

Djokovic out injured in New York.
Might finally get to see Fed play Nadal at the US Open.

Both should make it but I think there is another upset on cards.
Would love to see it happen tho!

Ffs Dimitrov beat Fed for the first time ever in 5 sets.

Nadal has a great chance to get US Open #4 and 19 slams overall.

Serena should win the US Open tonight and get to No.24 slams.
Nobody has won more.

Nadal should win No.19 tomorrow.

Serena lost the 1st set 6-3.
She was down 5-1 in the 2nd set and saved a Championship point.
She has battled back to 5-5 in the 2nd set.

She has lost her last 4 slam finals now.  The pressure is obviously getting to her. 
44% of first serves is not good enough in a final.

Bianca played her best tennis in the final. No nerves at all and only 19!

Nadal wins US Open #4 and 19 Slam overall

Fed  20
Nadal 19
Novak 16

The big 3 have won the last 12 slams (all in their 30’s) and 54 of the last 64 over a 16 year period. 

I suspect Nadal will overtake Fed now with a few FO’s.
Novak prob will too if he stays fit and motivated.

Hard to see Djokovic not holding the record when he retires. Seems to have a bad shoulder injury at the moment but that shouldn't stop him.

Tsitsipas (21) beats Novak today and Zverev (22) takes out Fed in the Shanghai masters.

Medvedev (23) is also through to the 1/2 finals.

Good to see the young players beat the big 3. 
They need to do it in the slams tho.

** Can a mod change the title to 2020**

Aussie open starts tomorrow.

Men’s 
Fed & Novak in the same half.
Might get a repeat of last years final: Novak v Nadal. 
Hopefully one or two of the next Gen make the final.

Women’s 
Serena is the favourite but not the player she was.

Federer v Djokovic in the semi final, Nadal/Wawrinka likely to make it through to the semi final too.
 
Medveded/Tsitsipas flatter to deceive again.

Federer saved 7 match points! but it was as much Sandgren bottling it as him saving them.

Both Djokovic and Federer left the court in the middle of  sets when they really shouldn't have, to mess around with contact lenses, and have a supposed groin strain be treated in private, respectively.

The old lads still up to all the tricks.

Fed 38
Stan 34
Nadal 33
Djokovic 32 

Between them have won the last 14 Aus opens. Should make it 15.

Djokovic was like a machine today. Can’t see anybody beating him.
