The most interesting week out of the warm-up weeks before Wimbledon is here. Some dude is trying to win his 6th title at Queen's, two former Wimbledon finalists are returning to action this week after a long hiatus and so is some woman from Belarus.
These threads are weekly threads with just tennis talk: match talk, past, current or upcoming events in tennis etc. Spamming (including muggy politics talk) and general sports talk can be done elsewhere such as the usual megathreads, current one is called Spam/OT thread 4.

Q. And finally, have you had a chance to experience Birmingham's culture much? Have you been out to any restaurants or seen much of the city yet?
GARBIÑE MUGURUZA: No. Because I feel like in this tournament the matches were so long. It was like three-hour matches and then two. I went twice to the cinema here. I went Mailbox.

If he wins a slam they said. I don't see it though. Not now, it's too late, he's never going to be a 5+ grand slam winner now.

in 5 years, he'll be 31. will he be a contender then with Fed/Nadal/Nole/Murray/Stan gone. maybe, but I doubt it because some other young GOATs like Alex Zverev will be miles ahead of him
