+265.


You can get even odds if Oikos can win 4 games. (in which SCD says he won't )

+265 isn't really appealing, I would have thought he'd be +350 or more.

Any headline writer not going with "Greek Tragedy" here should be fired.

Cilic (12 years older than Felix) wins in Stuttgart. Novak (12 years older than Tsitsipas) wins in Paris.

If you wanted a day to sum up #LostGen, today would be it. Felix losing in straights to a badly out of form and old Cilic and Oikos choking a two set lead in a major final. It's gonna be awesome seeing 48 year old Federer play 43 year old Nadal in the 2030 Australian Open final though, can't wait.

As if there was any doubt that Djokovic would come back.

We are so spoiled with the Big 3.

You'd also probably have to give Novak no worse than even money odds at doing the calendar slam. He does tend to meltdown in New York, but should still be a significant favorite to win the next two.

I'm at a loss for words Novak isn't human. I don't know what else Tsitsipas could have done those last 3 sets he was playing well. But Novak is probably the greatest player ever ( #### I hate saying that) . Hopefully someone else can win Wimbledon or else it will be 20 majors each at the US Open.

Someone heal up Wawrinka quick

Tsitsipas: I slugged it out with the soon-to-be GOAT for over 4 hours and you give me a silver tray. Thanks lol

Great to see Courier and Borg handing out the trophies though.

The one thing missing for Djokovic is Olympic Gold, and I'd say he has a pretty good chance of winning that too.

Step into a time machine and go back 14 years and tell your younger self that the guy doing funny Sharapova impressions is going to be the goat…imagine what your younger self’s reaction would be?
