Monday we see a rough first rounder for the guys. Stan Wawrinka plays Andy Murray. Two former top Players. Two of the “Big Four” playing each other in the first round. This is a finals. A semis ! A first round ? Literally The luck of the draw ! Two WILDCARDS playing each other. That’s weirder than two qualifiers. And as weird as two lucky losers it’s just weird. Sort of like roulette with double zeroes.


•Not sure but we are going Murray in straight sets.


Jared Donaldson playing Taylor Fritz. Two handsome young talented tennis players from America who live less than an hour from each other and both train in Carson CALIFORNIA.


•Don’t know for sure. Not sure I want to say I this one.


We see our old buddy Artiom Sitak playing dubs with his new partner Sharan from India. Artiom hit an ATP dubs high of 30 something and loses his partner. He is now 38 on ATP tour.
