American men really need to get their s*** together on slower hard court. I don’t get it.

Fritz’s 4th set yesterday was preposterous. I think he might even play well enough to take a set of Novak

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.

Tennis is also one of the most popular sports worldwide. Weirdo

You aren’t very good at this. Your xenophobia is why we’re here in the first place.

Whether its current players, recent players, past players, future players, college tennis is one of a variety of professional tennis pathways. The same can be said for many sports. And like every other college sport, like Marquette basketball, it is to be enjoyed in and of itself too. This isn’t difficult. Just post about what you enjoy, as long as you are decent and respectful.

So baseball, basketball, football, hockey, soccer, tennis, olympic sports, all levels and genders, are some of the sports that interest me. I don’t post much in the volleyball thread much, but I read it sometimes. I hadn’t been posting in the Women’s basketball thread lately, and “Marquette Fan” posted seeking more input.

This is also a Marquette board. Everyone is here because of Marquette.

Let’s see college tennis is so niche that all of the following played college tennis:

Arthur Ashe, Althea Gibson, Jimmy Connors, John/Pat McEnroe, Stan Smith, Billie Jean King, Todd Martin, Kevin Amderson, Bob/Mike Bryan, John Isner, James Blake, Jennifer Brady, Danielle Collins, MaliVai Washington, Steve Johnson, Camron Norrie, Maxime Cressy, Mackie McDonald, Brandon Nakashima, Ben Shelton, Chris Eubanks, Joe Salisbury, JJ Wolf,’Mayar Sherif, Emma Navarro, and many, many more.

You’re still embarrassed about the Nico thing. You brought that upon yourself. Everyone else moved on at the time except you.

I offered to meet up with you in person. You declined.

I offered for you to send me a private message. You declined.

I offered for you to put my posts on ignore. You declined.

Try exploring your xenophobia and your need for group validation.
 
As someone else pointed out to you, this is the tennis thread. Tennis posts will continue in this thread, whether you troll or not.

Fritz grew up on some of the slower hard courts in Rancho Santa Fe. Many others grew up on the faster hard courts.

I do understand that this is a tennis thread and you're talking about tennis...but if you don't understand that you're part of the problem then I don't know what to tell you.

Hopefully Fritz can keep it competitive tonight. The win over Tsitsipas was impressive, but he's understandably struggled against the top 3-4 players. He's 0-8 vs. Djokovic and has only taken a set off him once, a 5 set loss in the AO in 2021. If memory serves, Djokovic was dealing with some injuries in that match.

Fritz seems like one of those guys who will consistently do pretty well but doesn't really have the game to get over the hump against the world's best. While guys like Tiafoe are more inconsistent but have a higher ceiling and can get hot in certain matches.

Disclaimer: I follow tennis but only tune in live for the majors so my perception is based off a pretty small sample.

I’m not. It isn’t difficult to post on topic in threads without trolling or following people around the board. That accountability is on those people.

What you say on the internet and how you say it, is the same as how you would do it in person. No free passes on the internet.

If you don’t like how I post, put my posts on ignore. If you have something to post about tennis, go ahead. If there’s anything else, send me a message.

Not surprising you don’t know the history of the word.

You sent me a message that said, “All right clown boy, let’s see what you got.” 

“Also don’t take this the wrong way, but are you on the spectrum”

“Sure I’ll meet up.”

When I took you up on it, you said no.

Do I need to screen shot it?

Buddy - What do you think xenophobia means? Because everything you’re saying tells me you have no clue…

I’m not going to the game Wednesday night. You offered no alternative.

Screenshot away…I have nothing to hide.

Yep, it's easy to blame the troller.  It's even easier to ignore the troller.

We're just heading for a Novak Alcaraz final that was the easy prediction a week ago aren't we?
I'll stick with my opinion on Gold.  He'll be in foul trouble within the first eight minutes.
