Men's tournament is more predictable than the women's these days, glad Tsonga is out. Never liked him.

Shame Stephens couldn't overcome AzArenkA, but what a win to Li Na/Na Li

That doesn't mean the tennis isn't awesome though.

Hear what Tsonga said about women's tennis?

He said that most of the WTA players were weak mentally, I think? I don't really think he had an intended malice, unlike Tipsarevic usually does.

But then didn't he have 2 MPs against Djokovic at the FO and then lose?

That was never really going to happen.

Felt like a zombie all day at work today, but seeing Federer/Tsonga match live yesterday was totally worth it

Really happy that Li Na won through.

Meanwhile, this Djokovic/Ferrer match is an absolute borefest.

He said women are less consistent because they're mentally unstable because of hormones.

What the fuck is wrong with Ferrer?

Yeah, that's what it was. I did think he was referring to mental strength or something like that, but there are plenty of players on the ATP tour who are as weak as all hell ie. Almagro failing to serve it out twice against Ferrer a few days ago.

As for Ferrer today, Djokovic is just a level above him?

I've never hated the tennis media more than I do now. Pack of fucking wankers.

Wonderful to see Azarenka shutting up the media by winning slam #2. Great stuff.

The American media got enraged because she decided to take an MTO because she was having medical problems in the SF, some even called for her to be disqualified. This wouldn't have been as big as it was if it weren't for Stephens being the opponent in the match.

So long story short, crowd readily eat up all the shit the media cry about and act like animals towards her in the final.

I feel ashamed to live in this country sometimes.

Hi guys, I don't know a lot about tennis, but when did Tomic start being such a dick?

Also, I love Mr. Stanislas Wawrinka.

He always was, I think it began when he complained about being given second match on RLA on a night slot because it was apparently too late for him. That was in 2010 I believe.

I really like Stan too.
