    Scoop,

    Last year of this great event in Newport

    Giovanni Mpetshi Perricard also looks to be in the tourney – he just took out Ben Shelton today and also has won a ATP title.

    Big Serve!

    Looking forward to seeing you there

    Ryan yes always nice to reconnect in the tennis universe. This French guy with the challenging name or GMP keeps popping up in ATP results. Part of the Fils group. France is producing young talent unlike UK and Australia. Even Spain is in a drought.

    I’m still fascinated by Mannarino’s game. Some in the park have called him “the ultimate beta male” of tennis. lol Yet with his obvious lefty serve strategy and compact strokes he’s built a very nice career. I have hard time seeing him defend his title but I’ll be rooting for him. His style even perplexed Federer at Wimby and I was certain he was going win that strange match before his injury.

    The injury nobody saw. He was going to beat RF then suddenly seemed to quit after proving he could do it. One of the stranger matches you will ever see. Mannarino looks like an ordinary player but he’s extraordinary. Carries himself like a beta but he may be an alpha in disguise. Very deceptive great player. Still going strong at 36. Always a great pleasure to see him play on Newport which he obviously loves.
