Re: irish tennis
Yeah, I mean, Novak will almost certainly be the night match on Arthur Ashe on whichever day he plays. For Conor to get that experience will be such a massive moment in his career, even though I'm sure he'd like the extra ranking points and several thousand dollars from winning a match here.
Louk on the other hand got a total raw deal. Robin is too good to see him beating but also not popular enough in the USA to be a marquee match like Novak will be.
I'd be a bit happier with this if Conor had beaten Mannarino at Wimbledon, but as it stands, I'm really hoping that after finally making the main draw of majors he'll win a match in one at some point.
