Shocking : Stefanos Tsitsipas Feels His Chances “Are Going Up” at the US Open Without Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer—-In case you miss it

Stefanos Tsitsipas Feels His Chances “Are Going Up” at the US Open Without Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer

World No. 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas is getting ready to play at the US Open. The Grand Slam is the first one to be arranged in the pandemic era. This year, Wimbledon got canceled for the first time since World War 2, while the French Open has been indefinitely postponed.

 

 

Despite the USTA’s strict guidelines and safety measures, many players have withdrawn from the tournament. According to The National, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, and Gael Monfils – and seven of the world’s top 50 (men) are out of the tournament. This is going to be the first grand slam in 21 years to not feature Nadal or Federer.

 

 

However, in a recent interview, Tsitsipas said that was a good opportunity. “The chances are definitely going up, with the absence of Federer and Nadal from the US Open. It is definitely a better opportunity to play better, to feel that not all the attention is on them. I am also given the opportunity to be in a better position in the leaderboard ranking,” the Greek claimed.

“I do not know what went through their mind” – Stefanos Tsitsipas

He also seems unsure of why the players pulled, saying, “I do not know what went through their minds and why they made this decision. I know, of course, that Federer also had an injury. Nadal, I do not know why he will not play, it probably has to do with Roland Garros. This, however, gives me the impetus, motivates me. I feel good about my game. Djokovic, of course, will be a challenge.”

“Most of the players have worked, they have trained in recent months, they are in good condition and I know that because I have trained with many of them. It will be a challenge for everyone, it is something we have not experienced before. The situation will be very different from the other Grand Slams. He who will get along well with himself, who will find a solution in silence, will be the one who will do best,” Tsitsipas concluded.

Women’s World No 1 Ashleigh Barty, No 5 Elina Svitolina, seventh-ranked Kiki Bertens, and nine of the world’s top 40 (women), have confirmed they will not be in New York. However, World No. 9 Serena Williams will be participating. If she wins this time, it will be her first Grand Slam since 2017. She could also go on to tie with Margaret Court’s record for the most Grand Slam wins ever.

Recently, Tsitsipas and Williams practiced together in Flushing Meadows and spoke very highly of each other. It’s interesting to note that Patrick Mouratoglou coaches them both.

The US Open will commence from August 31 at the Billie Jean King Centre, New York. This will be the very first time that the tournament won’t have any crowd due to COVID-19.

10 Becky Lynch Cosplays You Have To See To Believe

Published

Art is a valid aspect of WWE. We can only appreciate the works of these irreplaceable members of the community, some of whom make their cosplays, style their wigs, perfect makeup techniques, and edit their photos all by themselves.

Such is the person of Becky Lynch who, being one of the most talented women in WWE, put in a great deal of work to enhance her talent and earn her current status as one of the top WWE ambassadors, merchandise sellers, and female wrestlers. Her “The Man” gimmick comes with a good dose of aggression, her fans and cosplayers find interesting. You have to see these cosplays to believe their awesomeness.

Few things trend more than The Man on social media, possibly why she’s in the Top-10 most-followed wrestlers on the platform. Her pregnancy announcement received a tremendous number of tributes and throwbacks, like this one of an earlier cosplay.

We’d been worried why she’d vacated her Raw Women’s Championship to Asuka until she let out those words, “I’m gonna go be a mother.” The Limerick-born athlete is engaged to fellow wrestler, Seth Rollins. They were to get married this spring. We do not know if she’ll have a role to play in WWE in the coming months, but her fandom is sure to carry her through a hiatus.

Video: Naomi Osaka making fun of her boyfriend TBN Cordae with TikTok video

Published

on

Naomi Osaka is spending her lockdown with her boyfriend YBN Cordae. They enjoy a fantastic relationship that was (sort of) officialized roughly 1 year ago on social media. Naomi’s boyfriend is a rather well-known American rapper and she loves supporting him as much as she can.

Nevertheless, the former world no.1 rarely misses the opportunity to make some fun of the people she loves. Last week, she posted an entertaining video about her father on social media. Now it’s YBN Cordae’s turn with Naomi explaining the huge difference in how he is perceived by his fans and how she sees him.

Naomi Osaka’s ‘odd’ dream for biggest achievement showcased vs. Serena Williams

Published

Naomi Osaka is on top of the tennis world right now with a dominating semifinal performance against Serena Williams, an Australian Open trophy in her hands and a fourth consecutive Grand Slam title in four tries, an unmatched feat.

 

 

At 23 years old, she has potentially decades of tennis in front of her and is seen as the heir apparent to Williams’ throne when the 23-time Grand Slam winner retires from the sport.

But Osaka doesn’t view her ultimate achievement in terms of Grand Slams or trophies or money earned.

Osaka’s ‘odd’ achievement she wants to see
Her biggest achievement would come if years from now we see a match play out similarly to what we’ve seen from Osaka vs. Williams over the past handful of years.

She shared what she wants to see after defeating Jennifer Brady in the 2021 Australian Open final on Saturday.

“I feel like the biggest thing I want to achieve is — this is going to sound really odd. Hopefully I play long enough to play a girl that said that I was once her favorite player or something. For me, I think that’s the coolest thing that could ever happen to me. I think I have those feelings of watching my favorite players. Unfortunately I didn’t get to play Li Na, but, yeah. I just think that that’s how the sport moves forward.”

Li is a former Chinese tennis player who reached No. 2 in the world in February 2014 after winning the Australian Open. She also has a Grand Slam victory at Roland Garros in 2011. Li was the first Grand Slam singles champion from Asia in either the men’s or women’s game and was the first player representing Asia to even compete in a Grand Slam final. She retired in September of 2014 at the age of 32 and was inducted in 2019 to the International Tennis Hall of Fame, again the first Asian-born player to do so.

Osaka does get to play Williams

Osaka, who was born in Japan, turned professional in September of 2013 and while she didn’t get to face her favorite player, she has faced Williams, a competitor she’s called her “idol.” The two are 16 years apart and some look at Osaka as the legacy Williams leaves behind, the same way Osaka said facing a favorite player is how the sport moves forward.

Their semifinal showed that, with Williams taking an early lead but Osaka storming back to prime form and dismantling the tennis queen with an almost easy stride.

Williams turns 40 this year and there are questions about the end of her career, though she admitted she’d never tell anyone if it were the end. Osaka was asked after the win if things had begun to shift so that Williams is no longer the face of tennis, and rather Osaka is now it.

“No. Not at all,” she said in her shortest answer of a reflective 37-minute news conference.

But she will be soon, pushing the sport forward for another round.
