Not sure he can pull it off this year, but I'll be pulling for him.

Him or the kid would be cool. I mean really just not the top 2 ranked men and we are golden. We don't need Djoker or Russian tennis redemption stories.

I do wish Fed had one more magical grass run in him but looking unlikely.

Looks like they set it up where Alcaraz won't face Joker/Nadal until Semi? or Final... looking at the draw... Joker/Nadal will face each other if they win their matches... I'm afraid Joker would win as he looks to be back to 100% right now, but you now Rafa... He's going to give it everything he's got.

Alcaraz had a scare yesterday... might be a good thing to let him know this is not a cake walk... he has to take every match seriously, every point. But I hope he can make the final... him vs. either of those two will be another great match.

this draw is nuts, what with the 1, 3, 5, and 6 seeds in the top half and 2, 4, 7, and 8 in the bottom. it gets even worse when the 4 seed is the only one in that half with a realistic chance of winning, plus the two favorites, 1 and 5, are in the same quarter.

oh yes, and congrats to Rafa. he'll be 36 in a few days and is still on top, even with all his injuries and punishing play style. remarkable.

The crazy thing is that he's still 69 behind Federer.

That sounds like a backhanded compliment.

sorry, it's not meant to be; I have mad respect for him and what he has and continues to accomplish.

/if you were just doing a play on "backhand," well done
