A Pair Of Very Intriguing U.S. Open Tennis Final Round Matches On Tap

September 11, 2021

There are a pair of very intriguing U.S. Open Tennis Final Round matches upcoming.

Today, beginning at 4 P.M. Eastern Time, a pair of unseeded women players, still in their teens, 17 year old Leylah Fernandez and 19 year old Emma Raducanu, will meet for the title.

Tomorrow, also beginning at 4 or so and “bucking” (for me sound off with the tennis (Fowler/McEnroe) and football with Buck, if it were into N.Y. which the “Emperor’s” GB/New Orleans in Jacksonville due to Hurricane Ida, is not. Sound off for Nantz and especially Romo, for “piped into N.Y. market,” K.C./Cleveland), NFL action in the ratings “prostitution game,” Novak Djokovic with the great Rod Laver in attendance, will seek to become the first men’s calendar “Grand Slam” winner since Mr. Laver did so in 1969, when he faces the formidable Daniil Medvedev, in the title match.

Mr. Laver, now 82 years old, also accomplished the feat in 1962. Don Budge, referenced in the 1982 film, “Annie,” with such as Albert Finney, Aileen Quinn and Carol Burnett in the stellar cast, is the only other man, to accomplish the ” Calendar Grand Slam” feat, having done so in 1938.

The legendary Maureen “Little Mo” Connolly (1953), Margaret Smith Court (1970) and Stef Graf in 1988 are the only women to do so. (Opinion: Mrs. Smith Court, (I will not “Ms” her), however, her truly backward, I believe homophobic views that she has aired publicly, do diminish her “full picture,” in my book.

Alas, per Archie Bunker’s Place, certainly paraphrasing, “maybe we will not be judged at all, so why judge now?!”).
