Hes a tit.
Is the correct answer.

Didn't get his way so he threw a chair, before shaking hands and walking out.

He was right when he said a couple of weeks ago that tennis was entertainment, because I was definitely entertained.

Not long now before he disappears into the realm of the wasted talent, and his pathetic excuse for a family/entourage/enablers have to find alternative employment.

I've enjoyed Federer's return to clay. Only two losses against arguably the best clay players out there at the moment.

Rain delay in the 2nd match cant do Nadal's chances any harm.
Like he needs any help.

Still coming up short.

Thiem almost certainly.
Nadal it depends on his draw.
No way he wins on grass.

Gotta say it's been a great day. Mahut Wawrinka was a great game, Federer Tsonga too, Kyrgios match was basically him in a nutshell. Murray playing well in the doubles too now.

Federer and Zverev are in Halle.

Queens had Wawrinka, Kevin Anderson and del Potro, but they were eliminated or withdrew today. Tsitsipas and Raonic are perhaps the biggest names left in the field.

Dont think they ever do. If they arent playing a 500 event this week they certainly arent going to pitch up at a 250 one the week before Wimbledon starts
Big changes on the way ! We've heard it before but it's different this time !!!! , I believe Bdo gonna grow x

Nadal hasn't played in a non-Wimbledon grass tournament since 2015 so it's not that surprising. Djokovic was the defending champ in Stuttgart, but he didn't play it this year.

I'm a bit more surprised that Thiem isn't playing any event before Wimbledon. He has a reputation for playing every event he can register for.

Wimbledon is of little interest to thiem or Nadal in truth.
