Yep, same for me because of the World cup
And I am disappointed we won't see both Djokovic and Nadal in the final The winner of that match surely will go on and win the final?
You'd think so. John Isner and Kevin Anderson in the other semi final - hardly groundbreaking. Christ, I remember James Ward beating Isner three years ago in the Davis Cup in Glasgow - without that serve of his he is not much so clearly there's been a lack of quality on that side of the draw. Anderson? Fair play - he beat the greatest of them all so he deserves his chance.
But to be honest, I don't think the competition of the men's game has been great for a couple of years. Murray's been injured for most of that period and Djokovic, Nadal and Federer all now seem very selective as to how they plan their season, usually arounf their favoured playing service. Murray will do the same when he fully returns - I wouldn't be surprised if he stops playing clay court tennis. When looking at the future, the likes of Thiem (ok he retired in the first round), Zverev and Kyrgios have threatened to break through but have so far yet to deliver on their full potential so I sometimes wonder what the future will look like beyond the heavy weight names of Federer and co.
The women's game, by contrast, has been a lot more interesting to watch in the last couple of years.
