The third Masters 1000 of the year, and the first one on clay, is here. Most of the top ranked players are there. No WTA this week but Fed Cup during the weekend: Germany vs Czechia, France vs USA and a bunch of playoff ties.
This edition of tennis talk will likely be the final one, at least from me. Activity has been so low lately that I don't see any point in continuing. But it was a good run, wasn't it?

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 It's time for S/OT 6.

Find tennis nowadays to be erratic

Dont make consistent profit like i used to...... I think there are no real standout players anymore, they are all much of a muchness to me

Pretty much any or every match can turn into a crapshoot no matter who is playing

The golden era of tennis is definitely coming to an end now that the top 4 are all in their 30's now.

Novak v Nadal Quarter Final. Will see where Djokovic is really at.

On one hand it's a good sign he overcame a very inform player in straights but on the other it's a bad sign he wasted 9 match points. When was the last time he ever needed that many to finish a match.

When you have the game on clay he has, then this must be considered the biggest mug show of the year. Even Dimitrov in his old days would not have lost that set.
