It's a real shame that Berrettini wasn't seeded third. Ruud will probably not get through the first week.

Well Cilic withdrew. Expect the draw to continue to open up for Nadal. Djokovic has always had extremely easy draws at this tournament. Even if I weren't a Fed fanatic, I'd reallly love to see someone else lift the trophy.

Same with last year's losing Finalist Berrettini, too.

And now, since I'm in a celebratory mood, allow me to recycle one of my all-time favorite SNL bits:

"THANKS, BRI! JOE PISCOPO LIVE, WITH SATURDAY NIGHT SPORTS!

THE BIG STORY?!?!?

MUHAMMAD ALI!!!

LAST NIGHT!!!

FIGHT!!!

DRAMA!!!

BAHAMAS!!!

...lost."

[ Inspiration: Serena, with a year to prepare, against a 24-year-old never ranked higher than #90
and who was playing in her first Wimbledon main draw match today...LOSES after squandering several leads ]

The sport ain't what it was --- and probably never will be again.

Serena showed an amazing amount of ego in thinking she could show up with only a couple of doubles matches under her belt. I honestly wonder how far into the draw she thought she would get.
