This Spaniard kid was UNREAL in match just ended at US Open beating the #3 seeded Greek accused of cheating. Had to look up he's only 18 and not your typical slow clay court specialist from Spain. He was overpowering at times!

@Tron Big late IM win last night! I thought 8 teams made playoffs but only 7. Little tougher now with DC and Montreal having not that difficult schedules and unfortunately don't think IM plays either one again.

Shea!

Yes I thought the same. Sadly I was mistaken about the # of teams that make the playoffs.

The Dutch guy crushed Diego in the final set. :surprised:

Oh well but he got to meet Ben in NYC and no doubt his GF will console him!

Guy's appears to be an animal. Guilty as sin to me. Not even a high-class expensive flithy hooker would put up with that treatment. Wait a minute, I should ask Teela. Sweetness, what do you say? :popcorn

Great end to the Russian F1 race this morning. Looked like 21 year old Lando Norris would get first ever win holding off Lewis Hamilton but wrong pit decision cost him. These were the only 2 drivers who had a chance to win. In Sochi where I think the Olympics were once held and course right off the Black Sea. F1 nothing like Nascar where when the rain comes they halt the race.

F1 you just put on the equivalent of a rain tire for us. Well you see all these sophisticated computers charting everything including weather. Well only a couple laps to go and Norris crew gambles and keeps him out while Hamilton comes in. Puts Hamilton way behind over 20 seconds. Dry on one part of course but then starts pouring on other side. Norris can just about stay on the track.

Norris in orange car eventually slides off and Hamilton right behind easily passes. Norris even had to come in for tire change just to finish. Hamilton gets 100th all-time win and poor Lando still looking for #1. Frustrating but so young and good he'll get more than one for sure but ended up 8th.
