    Tennis rant, don't bother to read unless you're a tennis fan.

    Nick Kyrgios just beat Raphael Nadal in Acapulco. Kyrgios is famous for being a bad sport, walking off matches and other bad behavior. Nick is really good and could be a top player, as he showed by beating Nadal. Nadal wasn't happy about it.
    Nadal publicly took him to task and I think it's funny.

    I certainly don't like Kyrgios, but no one deserves his antics more than Nadal. Everyone has had to wait for Nadal all these years as he unfairly dictates play, it's always been so rude and ridiculous. We've all seen Nadal take the injury timeouts when his opponents are doing well. Of course there is Nadals' 2-note moaning every time he hits the ball, continuing almost until his opponent hits it back! Nadal stretches the rules as far as he can, and can't take it when someone else sticks it in his face. I just wish there was a way they could have both lost this match.

    Rant over. I feel better now

    There is a tennis player named Tsitsipas. When pronounced by the announcers, it sounds remarkably like Sissypants.
    Today I watched some highlights from a match and it was all "Sissypants makes an incredible get!" "What a remarkable shot from Sissypants!" "Sissypants moves on."
    I laughed my way through the vid and hope he wins so we can see more of him.

    Go, Sissypants!

    Federer faces Nadal in the semis at Roland Garros. It's Nadals' surface, so he will probably win, but Go Roger!!

    In other news, 17-yr old Amanda Anisimova beat Screaming Simona Halep in the quarters! yayhoo

    Wimbledon begins. Roger Federer is actually seeded 2nd, but I realistically don't see him beating any of the top 4-5 players. Would be over the moon to see it though!

    Go Roger!
