I have a just for fun question for my fellow tennis fans,

Last edited Mon Sep 7, 2020, 06:07 PM - Edit history (1)

Who do you thing may/will win the singles championships at the US Open?

At this midway point my picks would be Jennifer Brady for the women and Stefanos Tsitsipas for the men.

No need for you to explain because I ask the question for the sheer unvarnished hell of it.

I definitely think that we're seeing the torch being passed to the new generation of champions. Thanks for reading and for any comments.

1. Tsitsipas got knocked out by Coric in the last round. Brady is looking good but

I will go with Osaka, even with her injury. I would like for Williams to win it all.

Would like for any of the Canadian men to win it, but Djokovic is looking very tough. I also wouldn't mind seeing Thiem win it all.

I have to admire Djokovic for spending a lot of time negotiating on the day he had a match (and probably on other days) to help male players who might have been kept from playing due to their contact with Bernard Paire. He doesn't get enough credit for the work he donates to representing players (per my favorite Gilles Simon, who also has been a player rep).

2. Dang, I didn't see the Tsitsipas result.

Pardon me while I go pull my head out of my posterior. I think that between his young age and his high level of play recently there is a slam victory in his future. Of course, that isn't a guarantee...Genie Bouchard, for example.

Win or lose, I really like Jennifer Brady.

3. I've been a Serena fan for 20+ years.

GOAT imho and piss on religious bigot Margaret Court's 24 instead of Serena's 23. In fact, let's just say piss on Margaret Court.

11. For the first time in years I'm not pulling for my champion, Victoria Azarenka.

But I've really taken a liking to Jennifer Brady.

5. OMG--ND just accidentally (but in anger) hit a linesperson with a ball and was defaulted.

Hope she will be OK. She walked off the court but it looked bad. What a shame all around.

6. Clearly he had no intent to harm her,...

...but the default was a proper move.

7. agree, especially because it could have been worse, and because he had already hit balls into the

stands. They had to follow the rules.

8. His behavior has been ridiculous

I am going to say Medvedev for the men and GO SERENA!! Djokovic also an anti-vaxxer so no love lost with me.
