Anyone else watching the Nadal-Medvedev final?

I did for a bit, had to mute it.  Switched to the Seahawks game instead.

Nadal takes 1st set.

 

Really good match. 

 

us open crowd has been cheering against Medvedev last xpl. Matches  just like they were against Bianca so I'm going for Medvedev.  

 

Would be nice to serve them crow two days in a row.

And this is why I'm cancelling TSN on the next wave of restructuring my cable package.  Every once in a while TSN has something I'd absolutely love to watch but it's almost always inevitably on TSN2/3/4/5 because the main TSN channel caters to football, NBA, soccer, and auto racing.  None of which I watch.  Yesterday for the women's final, my son and I had the excitement of seeing Andreescu win by watching the real-time score updates.  Woulda been cool to see the winner live, but instead we got to see the 2nd set score update to 7-5.  I get it, you don't want to upset CFL fans, but you couldn't have figured something else out?  Stream it for free?  Keep the CFL on in Saskatchewan and Manitoba but tennis everywhere else?

Turning out to become another epic final today.

Medvedev coming back 0-2 to tie up the match and force a fifth set.I thought for sure this was over hours ago.

Wow. Medvedev almost came back. Would have been great to see him win with a great comeback like that.

Medvedev is low-key hilarious. Went from being a heel to a crowd favourite in the span of two weeks.

 

Massive respect to both him and Nadal for an outstanding match.

Wow, you really can see the biasness in this thread.

 

A 19 year old Canadian woman just beat an American legend to win her first ever (and Canada's) Grand Slam championship.

And not a peep of it in a tennis thread.

From Page 176 to Page 194, the entire discussion has been about her. ;)

I counter your offer with an offer to join the winning side!

The funny part of this picture is when it originally hit the internet many more Canadians talked about their hatred for the Canada Goose than there were Canadians complaining about being picked on.  Some of the horror stories about goose attacks were hilarious.

There are more eagles living in a 2 hour radius of me right now than there are in the entire USA (minus Alaska).

I hope the fans didn't boo Bianca like they did for Naomi last year.  

Nope. But Bianca trolled them by apologizing anyway......

 

Thing is, Serena had no way to blame the umpire for this one. First serve at less than 50%, against someone who can return like Bianca? That's a losing combination.

Yeah we unfortunately killed a buttload of ours in the 48 states a couple hundred years ago.  They like all of the wilderness there not to mention there are way fewer people there.

 

I used to watch Colbert when he played that character on his mock talk show.  For weeks he was hyping the fact that a hatchery, was going to release a bald eagle they named after him.  They attached a tracker to it.  Well before they even let the bird go I was like, "I'll bet money it heads to Canada".  It ended up in your neck of the woods, but eventually saw the error of it's ways and headed back to the US!

it probably got here then realized that Canadian eagles are badass (as are our ravens) and headed back to the states where it's relatively safe...

 

You guys probably have better quality garbage too.....B)
