Fact is... This is the finals we all expected. Two of the three top clay court players duking it out at the RG finals. Both players have a chance to make their own history. Nadal with the tie for most Grand slams won. Absolute domination of RG clay. Djokovic to have a double career Grand slam. Something not done since Laver.

Nadal is the clear favorite. Yet Djokovic has a better chance than most. Can't wait.

Kenin pulling MTO tactics and immediately losing 8 of the next 9 points on return....inject it in my veins.

A break at love and Swiatek is serving for the championship.

Not sure I've ever seen MTO tactics backfire so badly, Swiatek took it to another level after. Maybe she was just pissed and it fueled her.

That was impressive - Poland has their first grand slam champion. Congrats to Iga 6-4 6-1.

Also gotta love McEnroe of course justifying Kenin with the "Everyone does it" take. Wouldn't expect anything less. The fact Swiatek doesn't even have a single 7 game set on her run is ridiculous, she never even faced the possibility of losing a set.

The most dominant run at RG by a teenager that I can remember. I've certainly watched and followed women's tennis much more the last 2 years thanks to players like her, Bianca, Osaka, Azarenka it's really growing on me.

It certainly appears that it's just getting that much tougher for Serena to get to grand slam #24 with all the youngsters emerging in the women's game.

What time is the men's match on Sunday? If it's in the afternoon, Nadal will make quick work of Djokovic. If it starts later I think Djokovic will have more game.

Crazy an unseeded teenager wins a grand slam never even facing a set point.

Japan's first champion followed by Canada first champion followed by Poland's first champion. Good to see new countries in the mix.

Lest we forget we have Canadians in action next week (just in case you haven't gotten your fill of tennis lately):

Denis, Milos, and Vasek are playing in St. Petersburg (ATP 500 event)
Felix is playing in Cologne (ATP 250 event)

/Milos won the St. Petersburg tourney back in 2015

Do you think Federer will be there tomorrow in case Nadal wins and ties the record? Imagine Nadal wins, the crowd is silent we hear glass break and Federer comes out to the Stone Colds theme music

I don't know if Hype is the correct term, more like nervous as ####.

Ok...

1- who is going to get the first time violation for their service game?

2- does Djokovic show up with a neck bandage?

3- does Nadal show up in his black shoes or in the light blue shoes he wore at the start of RG?
