Casper Ruud with a fine performance today advancing over Andrey Rublev 2-6 7-5 7-6(5) and thus the semi-finals are set:

Djoker vs. Zverev
Medvedev vs. Ruud

I'm sorry but they've had plenty of time. This whole situation smells bad and I'm hoping we see some good come out of it -- especially with the Olympics just around the corner.

That email that was sent - they didn’t even try to make it convincing.

Like two kids standing on top of each other under a trench coat “hello fellow adult, I am also an adult”.

Obviously something sinister is happening

Medvedev with a pretty easy win over Casper Ruud earlier today and he awaits the winner between Djokovic and Zverev.

I just keep getting more and more pissed with each staged/outdated Peng Shuai photo or video they post, I can’t even with actual tennis right now. Supposedly they’re going to trot her out for a totally not under duress public appearance and statement in the next couple days.

All the dummies in western democratic countries that whine about getting cancelled, try getting scrubbed from existence within your entirely state controlled internet. This type of thing absolutely cannot stand.

We whine about getting cancelled but this is the extreme of it. This is news to the Western world but those who follow Chinese entertainment know about celebs getting wiped off the map.

Zverev will play Medvedev in the ATP Finals title match after eliminating Novak in three sets.

Both tours should suspended operations until Peng Shuai is found safe and allowed to leave the country. I fear for her safety

Well, that was a pretty disappointing ATP finals match as far as quality is concerned. Zverev takes it 6-4 6-4 over Medvedev, but the score flattered the Russian who looked pretty disinterested throughout the match.

PM me your address and it'll be in your mailbox in time for Christmas!

j/k I wouldn't go there, online I've seen shirts and tattoos (yes tattoos) of the 2019 Wimbledon final score. Djoker fans can get really hardcore.

That was quite the IOC - China collaboration on that Peng Shuai video I saw yesterday. My goodness, I need a new propaganda meter after watching that production.

yeah it's bad. assuming they're not deepfaking all these videos, the only thing it proves is that she (probably) hasn't been physically harmed. we will probably never have proof that she is free of coercion unless she leaves China and has an interview in which she discusses the sexual assault allegations again. I would put the chances of that happening at approximately negative 1000%.

Hahaha to be honest I would probably wear one if they made it with the Wimbledon 08 score.

I think if you were to rank all 20 of Federer's Grand Slam wins that tournament was his best and most impressive title. He won what 3/4 5 setters in a row.
