I love tennis for the diversity of levels/locales that go along with it, and for the fact that a few times a year the worlds collide. For example...

I've seen both Federer and Tiafoe play in person. Federer on Cincy's center court, Wimbledon's Centre Court, and just a few weeks ago, Montreal's center court.

Tiafoe I saw playing at the Challenger in Winnetka two years back. (champion gets $7,000)

Just one example, it's fun to see how many of those Winnetka Challenger guys show up at the big tournaments, often playing top seeds.

If I could make myself as a tennis player in a video game, mostly for aesthetics I'd give myself Tiafoe's forehand and Roger's backhand. Was fun last night.

I love Fed, but if we're picking it would be Nadal's forehand and Wawrinka's backhand. I realize Nadal is a lefty and Wawrinka is a righty so that's the same side, but you know what I mean.

I really thought Venus had it as they headed to 3rd but Sloane showed everyone what's up. Especially that last dominate break.

I was going hard for Venus but Sloane won me over there. Venus was killing the ball and couldn't get anything by her. Plus everytime Venus came up to the net bad things seemed to happen.

Us Open has to be thrilled with the finals after all the dropouts.
