Gauff lost, so the French is over for all Americans. Hopefully Wimbledon


will be better, but I am not at all sure it will be all that much better. Serena has a better chance on grass and The really big servers (Isner and Opelka) should do better, but who knows about the rest of the Americans who rarely play on grass.

After watching a lot of the French it seems clear that Tsitsipas (the second coming of a Greek freak after Giannis in the NBA) is going to be the next star of the men's game. He beat Medvedev fairly easily in the QF's and IMO will give Nadal a tough time in the final, but still lose. I just don't see Djokovic beating Nadal assuming Djoker beats Berrettini today. If Nadal wins which is very likely, I think he takes over #1 in all time majors won. He and Fed are tied now.

There will be two Greeks in the top 10 if Sakkari wins.
