    Disagree. If anyone knows more about anti-Semitism, it’s me. A 33 year-old Irish guy.

    Say what now?

    No dominant American men means tennis is dead? Dude - where do I even begin? Roger Federer is so popular he may as well be an American. I think the country was split on who to root for in Federer vs Roddick (who is an intolerable a-hole) in the Wimbledon final 10 years ago. Federer reignited tennis, due to his incredibly smooth style and personality; Nadal emerged as the near-perfect foe with a totally different style. Meanwhile Djokovic is right there with them and may end up with the most Grand Slams. We’ve seen these three supernovas wreck the field and play at the highest level...in that time a British player won Wimbledon for the first time in like 80 years while emerging as an intriguing player 4, even getting to the #1 ranking for a short time. How on earth can you conclude that tennis is dead when this is arguably the golden era, along with the 70s/80s men’s rivalries?

    I’d rather watch amazing tennis than a couple of Americans like Sampras and Agassi. Sampras was great but had no chance on slow courts, and his game would get throttled against the versatile masters today, Agassi was good but wildly inconsistent with a roller-coaster career.

    Yeah, I can’t speak for that time period. But it’s hard to imagine a time period in which you have three possible dudes that may end up being the GOAT of tennis playing (and playing at a high level) NOT being the golden years. Federer/Nadal will be must see TV.

    I tried to be anti-semetic but then I married a Jew and we raise our children as Jews. Couldn't be a high-quality racist if I tried.

    The statement was now its the golden age of tennis and its clearly not in the USA as TV ratings indicate. McEnroe et all had ratings as high as the NFL. Today tennis viewership barely registers a 1.0. I realize that you have many more viewing options today but the casual fan wants successful Americans to cheer for.

    I was never a big tennis guy but used to play on the local courts. I'll watch the majors if they are on.

    For multiple reasons back in the 80s John McEnroe was must watch TV for the casual fan like myself

    Survived Six Flags New England today ...
    Rides used to be fun ... now it's all about survival :p
    If one is in age denial (as I am) ... coasters are a reality check.

    Alamo Drafthouse was a big fat let down. Normal ass ****ty AMC level theater experience with good food selection and like 3x the cost.

    I got double teamed in Thailand for less.

    You’re taking a global sport and reducing it to an American-only perspective. What is the worldwide rating comparison?

    I'm American that's what we do. How dare those foreigners refer to soccer as football.

    @KontradictioN I can’t remember if it was this thread or not where we briefly spoke about the pollen in NC during the spring and you shared a couple of pics....it’s really gross here but I’ve never seen a tree felled during spring.

    This I think is from suburbs of Seattle.

    No it most definitely is NOT...why you only have to look at the work of the one and only Joe "Demure" Kerr to find subtlety as perfect as a one eyed rhinocerous run amok in a Sag Harbor fine china boutique ...

    Looks like there was a 4.6 earthquake just outside Seattle.

    My company is based out there and a bunch on Slack say it woke them out of a dead sleep.
