Man, this is a high quality match between Vasek and Murray. Andy took the first set 6-3, but Vasek is up a break in set 2.

A vintage Andy Murray performance as he was down 3-1 in set 2 and then ripped off five straight games to take the match over Vasek 6-3 6-3. Pops played quite well, but Murray was just in the zone.

Diego not so fortunate here, but the lads from both teams are looking sharp.

Happy Birthday to the greatest What If in Men's tennis Del Potro. Not many people can take out Nadal in the semi and then Federer in the finals of a slam. His forehead might be the greatest of all time, just insane power.

Imagine how many majors Seles would have won if she hadn't been stabbed in Hamburg? To already have won 7 at the age of 18 is incredible.

Seles had 7 at 18 what that's insane!! She could have won 30 slams.

Interesting that there's no Medvedev or Oikos for Team Europe on day 1. I know the match point values go up on days 2 and 3 so that could be part of the Borg strategy. At any rate, Team World better make hay on Friday.

These two guys got me hooked on the game - Jimmy Connors and Arthur Ashe planted the seed, but it really sprouted with Johnny Mac and Bjorn.

I'm jealous I never got to experience the rivalry. Everyone talks about how epic it was, heck they even made a movie about it lol.

It's really a shame that Bjorn retired so early. He was icy cool on the tennis court, but things weren't so great in his personal life (divorce and financial troubles etc.). Obviously, Stefan Edberg and Mats Wilander followed in Borg's footsteps, but Sweden has fallen off the tennis radar in recent years (you could say their Scandinavian neighbors Denmark and Norway have surpassed them of late).

Finally got around to watching this and I don't think I've ever seen any piece of media that has ever brought across a mental illness so well and explained it so clearly. Everyone should watch this.

If you have a chance, read Monica's autobiography.

So many, "what ifs?"

Thiem let his physio therapist go yesterday and now he is implying they caused further injury to his wrist which caused him to miss the rest of the season.

I read that story about Thiem, sounds like he got some Edmonton Oilers medical treatment. In other news and this came out of left field...
