That said, I don't think Isner gets enough credit for his work ethic (including diet) that has enabled him to continue playing fine tennis at the ripe old age of 36.

Man, Casper Ruud took it right to Tsitsipas today and advances 7-6 6-4. Impressive stuff.

Andy Roddick was originally written into The Office to be the father of Jan's baby. In the script tho it says he was a 4 time Grand Slam winner

Anyone else remember when Roddick hosted SNL? Can't think of another tennis player doing that.

I'll always remember his match against Nadal at the French.

Isner gave Thiem all he could handle this morning, but the Austrian prevailed 3-6 6-3 6-4. Rafa and Zverev are on court as I type.

Well, Rafa was up a break and then a few games later he's down a break in this opening set.

Edit: Zverev takes the first set 6-4 and Nadal looks puzzled as to what happened.

Well, that was a big hold by Rafa, but he's still down a break in set 2.

Zverev wins 6-4 6-4 - He did play well today but that was just a sub-standard performance from Rafa.

#### I hate Zverev. Rafa has a lot of work to put in before the French

Here's hoping Shapo/Bopanna can oust Zverev/Puetz from doubles as this match is just about to start (I don't think TSN is showing this match however).

Their is a sad story to the picture as the woman has Alzheimer's and said she wanted to meet Nadal before she forgets what tennis and Rafa meant to her life......
