I think it is more of a precaution than anything. The shoulder is probably feeling it after finally serving so much in a week after a couple years off.

I'm obviously not the target demographic, but let me just say that I won't be rushing to see that film.

De Minaur puts a halt to Andy Murray's winning streak on grass winning 6-3 6-1. That means that Andy will not be seeded at Wimbledon.

And on the women's side, Venus Williams received a wild card. That's great.

Donna Vekic just beat Elena Rybakina 6-7 6-3 6-4 at the Bett1 Open in Berlin (grass tourney). Rybakina had her shoulder wrapped so she's nursing an injury with Wimbledon looming.

It wasn't even competitive as De Minaur blew him away.

Probably for the best, he's played a lot, 10 matches in 2 weeks.
Rest up for Wimbledon!

Greek Yogurt just lost in straight sets to a very in-form Nicolas Jarry 7-6 7-5. Shapo should be coming up shortly.

It makes you wonder if Stef will ever win a grand slam at this point, I would argue his best chance is at the French Open where the slow conditions give him more time for his long swings (especially on the backhand).

Zverev takes the opening set 6-2. Shapo not looking good at all as he is spraying the ball all over the place thus far today.

The commentators saying that Zverev has been very impressive and to be fair, he has made some very fine shots, but Denis is helping him greatly with all the unforced errors.

Sometimes you play well and the opponent is better. That's not the case a lot of the time with Shapo. I wish he had more fight in him as he makes it too easy on his opponents when he loses.

He's been better in this second set, but he just has these lapses of concentration that cost him dearly.
