Ok. Where do I start. I guess with what it feels like to turn the corner into week two at WIMBLEDON.

 

Why do you feel it more than most slams? Easy. It’s that break on the middle Sunday. (Don’t forget the FRENCH Open has three Sunday’s • The U.S. Open used to seem to have three Monday’s.)

 

It’s a great day to breathe instead of spin. As a player or coach or manager or agent. It’s a feather in your cap to still be around. (It’s also a nice per diem for everyone.)

 

Wow. More on that later and the amazing food allowance.

 

Ok. Monday. Monday. Monday. I’m not sure where I’m going or when. All those top tennis superstars playing in one day, in one session.

 

There’s also great ladies and men’s doubles. There’s great mixed doubles, great junior tennis. ️Oh my gosh.

 

• O.k. • The Roger Federer versus Mannarino match. We go with R.F. in 3. It should be a beautiful match to watch. Really classic strokes from both players.

 

• O.k. • the SERENA match versus Rodina. SERENA in straight sets.

 

• O.K. • Kei Nishikori versus Gulbis. We are going with Ernests again. He is a man on a mission.

 

• O.K.• Big John Isner versus the young Greek Tsitsipas. Hmm. This is a tough pick. John is a “Marathon Man” as we all know. But he looked a bit weary against Belgian Davis Cup star Ruben Bemelmans. John was saved by a rain delay. I’m picking the kid.

 

What’s next? No idea. I’ll just have to go with the flow. All I know is the strawberries are the best ever and the grass isn’t bad either.
