Corri Gauff V Polona Hercog [Jul. 6th, 2019|09:15 am]

Sport can be cruel.

Last night's women's singles match was tremendous.

On one side a journeyman player nearing the end of her career who was looking at her first (and possibly final) chance of getting in the last 16 of a major.

On the other side a 15 year old kid.

And of course everyone (myself included) was rooting for the kid.

The older player had attitude, big tattoos, and tennis gear with skulls on it.

And the world was against her, cheering every mis-hit.

And she lost.

And the kid goes on to what could be one of the great careers in tennis.

Like I said, cruel.

the first time I EVER saw Rafa he was considerably younger, playing in the French Open. He was playing a Frenchman, so of course his opponent was the favorite and the longer the match went on, the more those nasty French began to jeer Nadal. Well, the crowd all but booed when Nadal won the match. I often wonder why he says Roland Garros is his favorite tournament.

Probably because he's now won it an astonishing 12 times :)
