Happy New Year to all - It's already 2022 down under.



Kicking things off with ATP Cup action. Schwartzman vs. Basilashvili coming up shortly.

Wow, that was quick. Schwartzman wins 6-1 6-2 over a very poor Basher.

Garin staring a bagel in his face from RBA in set #1.

Not looking like a good day for Chilean tennis fans.

Greek Yogurt takes on Hubi Hurkacz in about five hours from now which should be a dandy of a match.

A guy named Thanos replaced Greek Yogurt (bum elbow for Stefanos), but Hurkacz had all the infinity stones and stomped him 6-1 6-2

Thanos is ranked outside the top 1,000. Greece never stood a chance without Tsitsi

It's early, but a strong candidate for doubles rally of the year (match point as well).

It still kills me that Schnur doesn't bounce the ball when he serves.

I don't think that set score illustrates the actual play in that opening set, Schnur played quite well, but Isner is Isner and takes set 1 6-1

Isner defeats Schnur 6-1 6-3 - Nothing for Brayden to feel bad about, he just doesn't have the weapons to overwhelm big John.

I don’t have the news story, but I’ve heard there’s one out there suggesting Raonic is about to retire.

Has anyone heard anything?

I’ve felt frustration with Milos for never getting over the hump, or unable to overcome his injuries, but with a retirement I think those feelings will instantly transform into admiration and appreciation for what he accomplished and the great Canadian tennis ambassador he’s been.

I haven't heard anything but I wouldn't be surprised if he decided to hang up the racquet. If true, it really is a shame as back in 2016 he was well on his way to being a dominant player on tour.

No player, male or female ever reached as high as #3 in the world. At his peak years he had a positive record against Nadal and Federer. Not many can say that.

FAA and Fritz need a 3rd and deciding set. Felix took the opening in a tie-break and Fritz just won set 2 6-4

The Americans take both singles matches over Canada as Fritz rallies from a set down to edge Felix 6-7 6-4 6-4. It was a pretty good match as far as quality is concerned, but Felix just had a couple of shaky service games and that was the difference.

Medvedev was up 3-love in set 2 and 3-1 in set 3 as well.
