Tough to watch the U.S. men in tennis nowadays. Not a whole lot there since Sampras and Agassi left.
Always have conversations with my dad regarding this. Its a shame really. Isner and uh...Isner. Isner just won't ever be the complete package and because of that will never win anything. He is gonna stay at 9-15 ranking I'm guessing. He manages to move "deepish", but you can't keep going to 4/5 sets on your opening rounds and have a chance at winning, they all need to be 3 and over. Djoko every match has been 3, Murray has had two 3s and a 4, etc. Theres also Jack Sock, but hes so rough right now that I really can't tell if hes a flash in the pan or what.
But yeah Roddicks career was a shame. Right when he hits number one just a landslide of generational legendary talent hits the court. Always loved how in awe he was of it too. Press conferences he just would just shower those guys with praise, almost like he knew just how lucky he was to be able to see these top players up close. Was like he was just as big of a fan of Federer and co. as all the rest of us.
Me and my dad went through an old dresser down in the basement and found a whole bunch of Flyers stuff. Mugs, Christmas tree ornaments, kitchen aprons, a little replica 1975 stanley cup, old tickets and newspaper clippings for around the 80's and 90's and some other things. Really cool stuff.
Nearly 17 years after O.J. Simpson walked away from his Los Angeles murder trial a free man, a prosecutor at the center of the case has alleged that the lead defense lawyer tampered with a crucial piece of evidence.
Former Los Angeles deputy district attorney Christopher Darden on Thursday accused Simpson's defense lawyer, the late Johnnie Cochran, of "manipulating" one of the infamous gloves that the prosecution said linked Simpson to the grisly double murder of his former wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
