      Well Djokovic v Nadal QF

      Nadal took first set 6-2 and leads 2-0 in the second.
      Djokovic won this last year so he can obviously play on clay but he's made a terrible start here.

      Nadal has produced some astonishing tennis here. So far this is as good as he's ever played on clay which is saying something.

      Will be tough to keep it up but the damage may be done.

      RC in the Rafa corner as am I. Could be a classic if Novak gets this 2nd set...3-3.. Rafa twitching lot more than normal on serve..if that's possible.

      When a shot is missed I keep hearing, "F**k!" when it's the French accent in "Fault."

      Always think Rafa is very deep receiving serve. Gets picked off if his return isn't spot on. Novak 4-3 up after being 0-3 down 2nd set. Match has turned on it's head.

      Rafa's got to hang in there as Novak has won 6 out of last 7. Won 2nd set 6-4..one set all..

      Sh*te, looked like a stroll for Rafa earlier. I haven't followed tennis since Federer got injury after injury so why is this the QF, why are they not seeded 1 and 2 ? Has one of them been injured?

      Novak is 1 Rafa is 5....Novak has had all this disruption through his vaccine issues. He should win this match but has to be at the top of his game.

      Wouldn’t say he should win, the French Open has been Nadals strongest competition for well over a decade so I wouldn’t say anybody “should” ever be beating him in it. Have a good chance, sure, but should be winning it, nope.

      Right, I'd forgotten the covid sh*te. Still think Rafa is favourite here, not sure I can stay up to see it concluded though..

      Nadal V Zverev.

      Zverev rips one out across court to Nadals back hand, so far across Nadal nearly crashed into boards, then Zverev lashes it back across deep on Nadals forehand, Nadal has to piss across and lashes it back across court just a few inches short of the seats for the winner. Unbelievable recovery from Nadal- a classic point.

      Nadal takes first set on tiebreak. Making me knackered just watching Nadal.

      Great to see Zverev retiring after rolling over his ankle. Couldn't have happened to a nastier c**t of a human being on the tour.

      Reckon he should do that more often and here's hoping he doesn't stain Wimbledon's green courts this summer with his presence.

      I must have missed something. What has he done/said?

      Serena on centre court. Still such an awesome presence and player to watch after all these years.

      Can you answer me a question FMS, what are the little black squares on Serena's cheek? Any idea?

      Apparently it's to help her sinus issues. Reckon I should try them (my sinuses are terrible!)

      Ah right. I wondered what they were, maybe you should try it too then, see if it works, I feel for you.

      Incredible win for Harmony Tan. The deserving winner - probably more consistent than Serena on the day. What a great win, incredible match!
