Day 1 of Laver Cup seems like a big success. I enjoyed the 2 matches I saw.

It's really surprising how Europe dominates in top tennis. And that's with Djoker, Murray and Wawrinka being injured.

This is pretty fun to watch. Nadal and Federer look like they're having fun themselves.

I'm not liking the score on the second set though. :P

Honestly this is all Berdych's fault.

So if they get to the doubles decider do they play Nadal/Fed, the only successful doubles pairing so far for Team Europe even though they would've just lost both their singles matches to force it, or do they go with like Zverev/Thiem? lol.

That was rigged/scripted =P, to have Fed, who campaigned for this, win it by beating an Australian player too.

Edit: I want Fed and Nadal on the same team forever.

gotta maintain that #1 ranking somehow. he was probably trying to cause a freak accident in their doubles match too where he stole the overhead from roger ;)

Yeah. Have some random 250s and 500s but Shanghai needs to go. Have Paris and YEC earlier. Tennis dudes need more rest.

Tennis "offseason" if it can be called that is shockingly short compared to most sports.

The Masters rotates though doesn't it? Houston had it for a couple years back in the early 2000's, then China had it for a while. I'm sure Paris won't have it much longer.

you're thinking about the tour finals, which is in london now. paris has been a masters since 1990.

So I've got BeIN on while I work and a Beijing tennis tournament is on. I know this is probably the least important thing to tennis fans, but I have to ask what the hell is up with this stadium's seating arrangement? It's like a bunch of little cubicles with 7-8 seats in each. Is this common in tennis/China? I would think it would kill the atmosphere.

Its actually pretty common. Even Roland Garros has it on center court. I am guessing here, but these are probably sold as group tickets so that people that go together share the price, which I am assuming is pretty expensive.

How about Caroline Garcia...11 wins in a row for 2 titles in Wuhan and Beijing...she just beat #1 Halep...maybe Andy Murray was right when he said she would win some slams one day and "The girl Sharapova is playing(Garcia)is going to be number one in the world one day ... what a player".
