It’s funny, we don’t really hear these specialists who explained to us that tennis was has-been, that we had to change the rules, put in HF microphones, get the coaches to talk, etc.
In fact, tennis depends on the charisma of the players, their technical quality but also their desire to share their ‘kiff’ in a true spirit of fair play.
Yesterday’s Tiafoe-Kyrgios duel gave us all that and more.
If Nick had set Wimbledon on fire against Tsitsipas by mentally cracking up a Greek in “beaten and capricious child” mode, Frances stood up to him with her style and above all her smile: “Not even afraid” seems to explain the American.
And even though he missed five match points in the second set, Fraces never gave up. He has always remained in the same line to the delight of the fans present at the stadium but also for those glued to their televisions.
Thanks guys and see you next time!
