ATP/WTA Tour - The Other Players

Quote

Federer officially in 3rd place on GS titles. Who would have thought he would retire as 3rd all those years ago.

I wasn't able to watch the final but I kept an eye on the score all afternoon.  I think Djokovic must be all too used to winning Wimbledon titles   shocking
Following this final people might realise that Nick Kyrgios is an excellent player and one who deserves a higher ranking in 2023.  He doesn't throw his racquet all the time and he isn't always bad tempered.
Wishing him luck at the US Open and congratulations for reaching the final at Wimbledon.

No ranking points at Wimbledon this year so ....

1.  Daniil Medvedev
2.  Alexander Zverev
3. Rafa Nadal
4. Stefanos Tsitsipas
5. Casper Ruud
6. Carlos Alcaraz
7. Novak Djokovic

45. Nick Kyrgios

(**  I haven't included their ranking points this time, because it's easy for anyone who's interested to find the points for themselves)
(***  I also would usually list the Top 10 players but again these others can be easily found)

I never thought it was right to withdraw ranking points and to ban the Russian and Belarussian players.  The players who took part this Wimbledon  knew they wouldn't get any ranking points, it's  to their credit they played.

^ Money, moonglow, is always a big incentive, as is the desire to compete at a high level.  I agree with the withdrawal of ranking points otherwise it wouldn't have been fair to the Russian and Belarusian players, who should have been allowed to play under a neutral flag anyway, only the stupid AELTC listened to the dictates of our equally stupid and incompetent government.

^  The Russian and Belarusian players shouldn't have been banned in the first place and as at other tournaments, they should have been allowed to play under a neutral flag. In that case all players would have been allocated ranking points as they always are.  Some players regarded this Wimbledon as an exhibition tournament and elected not to take part.
Where will this leave Wimbledon in 2023 should the war in Ukraine still be continuing?

^ Wimbledon went along with the then current Government guidelines, so it's possible that with a different PM and cabinet ministers in place things might change - either that or the AELTC gets its act together, stands on its own two feet and makes a common sense decision, which is to let these players play under a neutral flag.

You're welcome...
Its difficult to keep up with the matches, as they can switch courts and streams occasionally so, its just a guide really, and something to fill the days...

Carlos Alcaraz - It isn't win win win all the way - it sometimes is lose lose lose :

This is a strange tournament: quite a lot of top seeds have gone out in the early rounds. Atm, Ruud is dismantling FAA, who has played so dominantly in his previous matches. Fritz could not maintain the high level he showed against Andy (apart from the second set) and was defeated by a brilliant Dan Evans.
And one more thought of mine concerning comebacks. Stan is still struggling to win matches, Goffin lacks consistency, Thiem is slowly making progress. So Andy is in good company (though of course I would like him to do better on a more regular basis).
