Good job, Rafa!

3 ( +4 / -1 )

After so many years, after so many titles, these two still have the hunger and power to dominate tennis, absolutely amazing.

On the other side, a double bagel in a masters' final doesn't bode too well.

@timeon - Yes, agreed. The Rafa/Djoko show is yet another chapter in a beautiful rivalry that's been so good for the sport. I wish it hadn't been on so late in Japan. I caught the first set before I couldn't keep my eyes open anymore. But I watched a lot of this tournament, and both Djokovic and Rafa really found ways to take it to the next level.

Yes, amazing stuff. I had to turn the lights out reluctantly at some point, but fantastic tennis between these two.

The oldies ain't going nowhere just yet!

Nice.

Good job, Rafa

I strongly think 54 revolutions per second is completely inaccurate - full revolutions of a tennis ball in flight per second. ?

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

and why post a photo of ladies loser Pliskova looking extremely dejected ?

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Just a little worrying where the guys left Han is holding Iga Swiatek in the photo, though she seems happy?

1 ( +1 / -0 )
