    @aleeex1923 wimbledon started today!

    - rafa going for another major victory.

    -serena is back. i doubt she'll go far because it's been a year since she's played singles. but hey, she is serena williams.

    - osaka isn't playing

    -it'll be interesting to see how long iga can keep her winning streak going

    @Flacko are you enjoying Wimbledon? who have you seen play so far?

    coco, iga AND tsitsipas lost today. and iga lost in straight sets. her winning streak is over

    coco struggled with her forehand and her first serve. coco has gotta improve that first serve if she wants to round out her game

    What a great tournament so far. The local hero for all of my country, Halep is going strong and she's about to win it all.

    And d---, Kyrgios is so good to watch he makes tennis looks interesting. Can't wait for tomorrow's game against Rafa. But after the long game against Fritz, I don't think Nadal can put up a fight against Kyrgios.

    your girl halep struggled today, but she still went pretty far in the tournament.

    rafa ended up withdrawing--which doesn't surprise me--you could tell he was in some pain during his match vs fritz. i was super excited for rafa vs kyrgios too. ah well.

    it would be cool to see Kyrgios win his first major. i think he's got a good shot. he's obviously playing really well right now---and he's gonna get extra rest being that nadal withdrew.

    @aleeex1923 either jabeur or rybakina will win her first major.

    and on the men's side we got djokovic vs kyrigos. both of these guys are so animated. you never know what they'll do next lol. obviously it's hard to go against djokovic, but maybe kyrigos can pull it off. he's gotten more rest in this tournament than djokovic--maybe that'll work in his favor. we could have not one but TWO first time major winners this weekend. were definitely gonna get at least one

    Yeah Djokovic is playing solid asf, but NIck is serving perfect, honestly can't wait for the game is gonna be a fun one for sure. I just hope Kyrgios will put up a fight and will not see a 3-0 for Djokovic.

    @aleeex1923 djokovic prevails again!

    nick played well but it just wasn't enough. i think djokovic maintaining his composure a little more than nick made the difference. the sets throughout the match were close and could have gone either way, but djokovic played a little better during the critical moments of the match

    that's awesome you got to see Djokovic in person. hope you had a great time.

    serena williams hinted at retirement. it looks like the US Open is going to be her last time playing

    Every time Nick Kyrgios has a match I have to watch it, Dude is probably the most exciting player to watch since Fedal.
