Dive In


It's weird. I felt like he didn't do anything amazing today…But he was just so composed. That's what I was just thinking to myself. In big moments, it just felt like he was never rattled. I feel like that's his greatest strength: He just never looks rattled.

That’s what Nick Kyrgios said after losing to Novak Djokovic 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (3) in the men’s final of the Wimbledon. Oddly enough, Djoko will still drop 2,000 points in his ranking despite the win. The reason: Wimbledon was stripped of its ranking points after it decided to ban all Russian players. But the rules didn’t stop Russian-origin Elena Rybakina—who now represents Kazakhstan—from taking the women’s trophy home. She beat Ons Jabeur—the first Arab and the first African woman to reach the final. When asked about the Ukraine war after the win, “Rybakina said her English was not good enough to understand the question, the only time during 30 minutes of questioning she made that claim.”
