This is like a TV show that you've started, has grown stale and overrun for a few seasons, but you can't turn off because you want to know how it ends.

A guid dram
Serious question......I've noticed for a few years now....while watching doubles matches (I've been watching mixed doubles laterally this afternoon) when the players talk to each other between points they cover their mouths. Is there any practical reason for this cos for the life of me I can't work this out! I'm presuming it is not to allow their utterances be 'understood'....but by whom ? Just wondering.
What pisses me off about the doubles, is the fistpumps ON EVERY SINGLE POINT WIN OR LOSE!

This match is currently the 7th longest in history. The thing is, both players look stronger on their serve the longer it goes on because both players are too knackered to return effectively. They need to introduce 5th set tie-breakers.

Kevin Anderson will be glad for a day off after his win today !

But not sure Nadal or Djokovic will be happy about having to come back tomorrow..potentially.

Djokovic takes the first set easily....6-2. Anderson hardly in the game so far and has made far far too many unforced errors.

I was pleased Djokovic won, but it was just a shame the final was so poor, but it was to be expected really after all the hours that Anderson had spent on court. I can see Djokovic going on to win many more slams over the next few years now.

Edmund's continuing his shit hard court form.

He's had a surprisingly poor post Wimbledon.
