Anybody watching?

 

Serena is down 6-2 4-1 vs. Muguruza! :yikes:

 

Wawrinka already out.

 

I hope Rafa wins his 9th (and 5th straight) Roland this year.

There's gold and it's haunting and haunting; it's luring me on as of old; Yet it isn't the gold that I'm wanting So much as just finding the gold; It's the great, big, broad land 'way up yonder, It's the forest where silence has lease; It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder, It's the stillness that fills me with peace.

I haven't been watching, the timing is difficult but I'll probably start trying to get some matches in soon.

^ I know the timing is tough but give it a try because there are some good matches. Monfils is playing well. Isner almost found oil with his first serves. And of course Rafa, Federer and Djokovic.

 

On the other hand, in the ladies' draw the first three seeds (Serena, Li Na and Aga) are out.

Destroyed 6-1 6-2 6-1. RIP Lajovic

 

Stephens is playing right now on Philippe Chatrier against Halep.

Sharapova wins 6-4 6-7 (5-7) 6-4.

 

Unfortunately, I missed the last two and most important games of the third set because some stupid dickheads have suddenly and abruptly interrupted the broadcasting to show soccer. Not the World Cup, but a local game nobody cares about.

Raf is going to win but I haven't watched 1 match so I'm going to try to catch the one tomorrow. Hopefully I'm not too hungover lol.

Great match. Is Federer still regarded as the GOAT or has Nadal surpassed him? Haven't kept up with the sport in a while.

^ Well, IMO Nadal is getting closer and closer to Federer but has not surpassed him yet. Federer has won more Australian Opens, Wimbledons and US Opens but Nadal is the undisputed king of clay and of the French Open, of course.

Just finished the match. Obviously thought Nadal would win before the match but after DJokovic took that first set I was questioning if Nadal would win.

Nadal doesn't just play on clay, he is the clay. This level of domination will never be seen again. He's 1a 1b with Federer at the least, that dominant H2H record he has against him can't be dismissed.
