This thread, the one you are reading, is about tennis. And, that thread, one you also apparently read, is about professional soccer pathways.

One of these players will reach the Australian Open Women’s Singles Semifinals:

Blinkova
Paolini
Kalinskaya
Stephens
Wang
Zheng
Dodin
………………….
The 7 other seeds in Gauff’s section to the semifinals have all lost.
………………..
American Danielle Collins would like one back. The 2 NCAA Singles champion was up 4-1 as well as 4-2 40-15 over top seed Iga Swiatek, but she couldn’t close it out. Collins was dominant in the middle of the match after a slow start and poor finish. Credit to Swiatek for hanging around as she said after “I was on my way to the airport.”
…………………
17 1st round 5 setters is an AO record for Men’s singles.
………………..
Anna Blinkova saved SIX match points. And she needed TEN match points of her own to defeat 2 seed Elena Rybakina. 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (22-20)
……………….
Still alive:

Gauff, Parks, Anisimova, Stephens, Navarro.

……………..
Still alive for Men’s singles:

Fritz, Shelton, Korda, Michelson, Paul,
………………
Pegula withdrew from doubles (w/Gauff)
………………

22-20 is just crazy. I had a 17-15 once but that was just a third set breaker

The meathead in me just loves watching Shelton though. Truly unbelievable athleticism and some baffling decision making

Yep. It was wild. Slight asterisk as it’s now a 10 point tie breaker vs 7. But still.

Then Medvedev finished his 5 setter at 3:39am.

So much for the new efforts to for reasonable times, lol.

Fritz just burst through his second pair of Nikes in his match. Not a good look for them.

I used Nikes once and the same thing happened to me. Trash shoes for tennis imo

50. (just 19 UE’s)

50 winners for American Taylor Fritz en route to a Round of 16 win over Stefanos Tsitsipas.

One of the best performances of his life. Backhand was fire. Strong on both sides and served well. He will return to the ATP Top 10.

I’m happy to meet up with you in person to discuss why you follow me around the board regardless of thread or topic. Just send me a private message and we can set something up.

Enjoy the tennis.

I understand your confusion. It must be an odd feeling for someone to actually respond to one of your posts.

I’d rather do it here and derail your personal twitter feed, I mean the tennis thread.

No one is forcing you to read every thread. (I don’t read many)

No one is preventing you from producing (or consuming) information about thread topics.

I’m happy to post more MU tennis in the tennis thread as well. (Highly recommend MU tennis alums Robert Budiano, Jon Calvillo, out at North Shore.)

There are healthier ways to go about reducing your need for social validation. I’ll look for your private message.

Enjoy the tennis thread.

I’ll continue to encourage you to begin a creed thoughts esque blog to post all of the information no one else here is interested in which somehow makes you feel superior to others because you fanatically follow these wildly niche sports.

And yet here you are, every time, everywhere I go reading threads and posts that don’t interest you.

Just because you feel inferior about yourself, doesn’t mean others feel superior to you.

This is a Marquette message board.

Free Steve Rodecap, Jody Bronson, Willie Cakans.

Enjoy the tennis.

There you go throwing out random names to try and prove your point yet feeding directly into my criticism. Lol

I did enjoy your Wikipedia recap of little known writer David Simon though.
