So they're both assholes.  Not the first time that a final in individual sports has ended this way...as long as they put on a good show.

Putting vax status on a similar plane as Chinese atrocities and domestic violence, lol.

Such a shame that both of them couldn't've lost. They're both USDA approved prime assholes.

Both abject pricks. Fark 'em.

Kyrgios needs a therapist, a priest, a wife or a husband.  Dude isn't a clown he is the whole God damn circus.  He is such a basket case.  Dude is super talented but, can't stop stomping on his own dice.  He is mental.  He is a man child.  He lacks basic social skills.  His mother should have dropped him on his head less.  He is insane.  He is his own worst enemy.  If he never attains greatness he has no one to blame but himself.

"Nobody won." Well, except for the guy with the winner's trophy and the big check.

Is there something about sport writing that turns people into idiots? Or is it only idiots who write about sport?

It's Slate.  They probably thought this period was over in the 7th inning.

No, no, no.  I'm sure the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club won.  As did their board of directors, advertisers, sponsors, and whoever was televising it.

They all made their money.

1) there is much, much, much more to hate about Joke than just his antivax and antiscience woo

b) even so, Kyrigos is still the bigger douche if the domestic violence stuff is true

iii) this Wimbledon sucked out loud

I don't particularly care for Joker or Medvedev, but  don't know why anyone would hate them.

So basically it was both Eagles/Patriots Super Bowls.

You know, none of this would had been an issue if Nadal had been healthy enough to play in the finals and beat Jerkavich. Then all we would be reading and talking about would be what a beast Nadal is and how he only needed to win the U.S. Open to have all four grand slams in a calendar year. <SIGH>

\How much fun that would have been....

there still would have been plenty of farked-up-ness, but that would have helped SO much. Nadal was poised for a serious run at the calendar slam...such a shame. :(

Nobody remembers Connors and McEnroe?

whither_apophis: Nobody remembers Connors and McEnroe?


I'm aware they were asshats who got into plenty of trouble but was only 5 when they won their last slams.

When I see someone in sports that is obviously out of control, I automatically assume they're taking some drugs that are farking them up mentally and hormonally

It's still amazing to me how many people look to athletes for moral and/or spiritual leadership.

American-Irish eyes: Kyrgios needs a therapist, a priest, a wife or a husband.  Dude isn't a clown he is the whole God damn circus.  He is such a basket case.  Dude is super talented but, can't stop stomping on his own dice.  He is mental.  He is a man child.  He lacks basic social skills.  His mother should have dropped him on his head less.  He is insane.  He is his own worst enemy.  If he never attains greatness he has no one to blame but himself.


Article said that he only plays for easy money. He couldn't care less about championships or what kind of legacy he leaves.
He reminds me a lot of McEnroe. The only difference is McEnroe WANTED to win. Kyrgios doesn't give a shiat. Either/or with him.
/still a basketcase though...

the only people looking to Joke for those things are Serbians/Eastern Europeans, where he's practically a religious figure.

That was actually very well written.

This isn't about Novak. The US has its own idols.
