What the big three have achieved won't be broken anytime soon you need an incredible amount of talent desire work ethic discipline and be injury free for all those years plus a good support team not to mention the mental toughness - once in a lifetime from the big 3 those records will probably stand until they put a grand slam in Africa

Maybe government should subsidize university fees start lowering teacher student ratios so kids can actually learn then no need for expensive cram schools baby bonus scheme and maybe make it exciting to have a family without all the financial burden of education should be free

Posted in: Nadal gets past Fritz at Wimbledon; Kyrgios next See in context

Mentally his ship had sailed , not physically hopefully Nadal's physical condition with his abdominal strain won't prevent him from participating in the semi final against krygios they have such different game plans and they both have some unfinished business , if Nadal's abdominal strain is good nadal in 4 sets otherwise walkover for nick who will play dgokovic on final.
