I really enjoyed the Men’s tennis final in contrast to the Women’s Final. No drama, no sexism, no racism, no arrogance.


Is it time to split the Women and Men into two separate Grand Slam championships?

Is it time to have same sex officiating at these events so that female players can’t accuse male officials of being prejudiced against them?

Has Serena Williams ruined the enjoyment of the US Open for all time for the fans?


Congratulations Novak Djokovic on winning your 14th Major title and 71st Career title. Keep up the good work!!!
