Well Serena, age catches up with all of us. Time to make a strategic withdrawal from tennis. Don't let ego interfere with common sense.

While there is no obligation to test, and most athletes at Wimbledon are vaccinated and far from being at risk, Berrettini acted in a very responsible way and self-tested after the first symptoms, renouncing to the world’s top tennis event where he was among the top 2-3 candidates for winning.

I have tons of colleagues and friends who clearly had covid in Japan but never tested for fear of being stigmatized and, god forbid, lose a day at work, where they kept going every day commuting in crowded trains. But I still have to see the Japanese make a sorry face and step back when I say I have family in Italy (though I haven’t been there myself recently) as if it was some kind of virus hell with irresponsible people.

Serena, how about joining your best buddy Meghan on Netflix business?

Watched Williams and Tan. One of the most riveting matches in tennis history. Most of the top players are in their late 30's and I take my hat off to them. For them, getting older is not a time to slow down and stop living like many posters on here would have us believe

What a ridiculous assumption. No-one is suggesting to stop living, merely having the foresight to acknowledge that there comes a time when engaging in different pursuits is more conducive to continuing a productive life.

So when Djokovic loses a set than you insert a photo of him head down on the ground, devastated, but when Nadal loses a set, almost two, then he is a lion, fighting. Haha! Well I really hope that next photo of Djokovic will be him eating the Wimbledon grass. ;)
