Murray is spent for now. He gave everything he had to become #1 last year when Djokovic fell off a cliff. Murray is like the Kerber of the ATP. They both expended all of their energy winning slams and getting to #1 in 2016 and they aren't 22.

I'm not sure they could get the ball over the net with it. It really did
play like a steel frying pan.

LOL. I just read Whisper's "intensive purposes" post and was just going to correct him until I saw your post.

You think Nadal can't do a repeat of 2008 and 2010?

WoO is WoO. There is nothing like a creditable WoO. Nadal, being the clay Phenomenon, can play less tune ups and keep himself healthy for FO, avoiding probable loss of mental and physical edge. No point crying injury etc.

Probably more pressure will be on Nadal this time.

THIS Djokovic has NO chance. He's nowhere near good enough to win the FO let alone beat Nadal in his current form there. Federer has a better chance to beat this Nadal than this awful Djokovic does if you can believe that but it's true.

You never know. We have to wait and see what happens and if Federer can continue his superb form of 2017 and perhaps win another W or USO and if Nadal can take his momentum and win more off clay slams.

Yes, Murphy's American Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson was very good. You should watch it. Murphy's working on two other versions of American Crime Story that I want to watch. One is Katrina about hurricane Katrina and the other is about the designer Versace. Both aren't scheduled to be on tv until 2018!
 
Murphy also created Nip/Tuck which was good and American Horror Story. I watched the first season of American Horror Story and liked it. I forgot about that show and really should attempt to watch the other seasons. It's still going strong 8 seasons later! Jessica Lange was fantastic in the first season of American Horror Story.

You are probably right.

Yes. The FO is my least favorite slam as well.

I doubt Federer will beat Nadal at the FO too but the beautiful thing is, even a 35 year old Federer has a better chance of beating Nadal at the FO than this ghostly and ghastly Djokovic we're seeing does! :)

She showed her boobs in pretty much all of her earlier films. There are certain actresses who you knew would show their boobs in all of their earlier roles. Sarandon was one. Naomi Watts was another.

What if Fed does the unthinkable and beats Nadal at the FO? Extremely unlikely but he has a better shot than Murray/Djokovic/Wawrinka at the moment IMO. Also Federer if he continues with his AO form, will beat Murray and Djokovic at the FO. They are awful at the moment.

He's also has another season of "Feud" in the works, but this time around it's going to be about Charles vs. Diana. Even though I'm not a royal-watcher sort, I expect Murphy will find a fresh and intelligent way to approach it, so I plan to watch. But as with the ones you mentioned, this isn't expected to air until 2018.

How many episodes in the first season of Feud? 8?

I'm so in on the Charles vs Diana theme! As you know, I love watching/reading all things royal whether a fictional account or not. I can't wait for the tv series The Crown to air its second season. It's awesome!

"Djokovic fallen off a cliff."
 
And I for one am reveling in his collapse. :)
 
But seriously, he'll slowly find some form back if he is motivated to get there again. It will take some time.

Nadal isn't the force he was in his prime but he doesn't have to be on clay. There's nobody good enough to stop him at the moment.

From alpha to Djoke. He needs to rediscover his inner alpha again. A course of F&F should do the trick. Or maybe "Dirty Dancing" (works for Rog!).

LOL @ Djokovic's father acting and having any say over his Novak. Novak supports his father and that entire family. His father has no authority in Novak's life! What a bozo that skriptis* is.

Quoting obviously false facts from a fake news site doesn't bolster any
confidence in your claims or honesty. In fact, it only confirms what we
already knew, you are a dishonest and morally bankrupt individual.

OK, he is a Trumper.
But those Hillary voters are at least as dishonest and morally bankrupt as Bob.
