Farewell Rog. Unbelievable career.

2-2 in Laver Cup. All to play for.

Great come back from Team World yesterday to win their first Laver Cup.

Shorter format is like 20/20 version of cricket to appeal to younger audience.

Supposed to be tennis’s version of Ryder Cup, but was very skewed in Europe’s favour. Hopefully take off now World has won their first.

Anyone come across Padel before? Sort of a tennis / squash hybrid with low pressure tennis sized balls and undersized rackets. Court is a 3rd of the size of a tennis court with walls that can be used like a squash court. Mainly played as doubles.

Just channel hopped on it on BT sport and it’s really entertaining.

Yes, always wanted to try it.

Looks like a lot of fun.

TBH the three year ban was excessive and the bigger issue was the complete farce that the Australian authorities made of the situation. Medical exemptions should have been limited purely to players who had a clear medical reason for not being vaccinated and they shouldn't have messed around with negative tests etc... Djokovic should have been informed earlier that he didn't meet the requirements to play and it should have been settled quietly. Instead it became a huge spectacle and probably helped spread anti-vax views by making Djokovic a victim.
