Odds are against it. Nobody has ever won 2 slams as the 1st 2 titles
they ever won.

I considered her, but surely FO/Wim as your 1st 2 titles ever is a bit much?

Maybe. Djoker has had puzzling losses in last few slams so Gulbis is as
good a chance as anyone, especially in this form.

Leaders from Japan and the European Union on Thursday announced their
agreement on the broad strokes of a trade deal that will cover nearly 30
percent of the global economy, 10 percent of the world's population and
40 percent of global trade.
 
If the nations agree to the terms, the deal will create a trading bloc
roughly the same size as that established by the North American Free
Trade Agreement, a 1994 deal between the United States, Mexico and Canada.
 
Coming on the eve of the Group of 20 meeting of global leaders in
Hamburg, the announcement appeared to be a calculated rebuke of both the
United States, which has spurned global trade agreements in favor of
more protectionist policies under President Trump, and Britain, which
voted to leave the European Union last year.
 
"Japan and the European Union will hoist the flag of free trade high
amidst protectionist trends," Abe said in a news conference Thursday.
 
The pact would be a heavy blow to American producers of these goods, by
making U.S.-made goods relatively more expensive and less competitive in
the major markets of Japan and Europe.

LOL how many years is that going to take to sort out? Canada's EU deal took over 7 years and then didn't even happen LOL

I'm sure he would rather play Federer in the final than be beaten in the
semi by someone else.

I hate that attitude. He should be saying "next time it will be
different", not throwing in the white towel.

What are you talking about? There's a reason McEnroe specifically chose Tiger Woods as the apt comparison in this case. There have been rumors about Djokovic's extracurricular activities for years. You think Djokovic is some Saint?

So Mac was taking a dig at Djokovic? Calling him a whore?
 
I doubt it. Did he say anything about Clooney and Cruise?

This is the first time you've heard rumors about Djokovic's supposed infidelities? Well then you are not very astute because speculation has been all over the press (especially British and Serbian) for over a year, i.e. rumors about affair with Bollywood actress, the nanny, etc. Do a google search! Do you think he just suddenly forgot how to hit a tennis ball about a year ago after he held all four slams? McEnroe's specific Tiger Woods comparison was very interesting. McEnroe could have named any other athlete in any sport who has had a career lull but he chose Tiger Woods. A coincidence? I doubt it?
 
I'm not saying these rumors are true but to say there haven't been rumors for a long time? You must live under a rock.

Did a quick one. The Nanny thing seems to be originated from a reddit
