So Geraint Thomas looks to be in best shape and despite he keeps telling the media that Froome is still the Sky leader I think that could change.
Even Dumoulin looks to be a better recovered from the tough Giro than Froome and he would be a contender too.
I'm still not writing Froome off after what he dead in Italy but it must of be said the things not looking great for him right now, still more than a week of struggle there ahead of them and Thomas has a history of failing in at least one mountain stage when it comes to 3 weeks race..so let's see.

So the third week of the tour is ahead now and I hope the race would go alive as I think it's far behind the Giro when it comes to intrigue and action.

To be honest I don't see anyone beside the top 3 riders plus potentially the 4th placed Roglic challenging the podium, but no doubt it should be quite interesting at least between those 4 when we have in mind all the mountain stages in the Pyrenees upcoming ..hope to be exiting.

Sorry I have been in hiding from Van Avermaet after he heard that I gave him my famous kiss of death. "How long do you think he can hold on?" was the question and the answer wasn't even one day. Sorry Greg!

I think now we are at the stage where it is almost a matter of finding out which of their riders Sky is going to permit to win it. Or will someone in the crowd rise up and throw a Sky rider off their bike? It looks like it has been close the past few stages. And if it isn't the crowd panning the Sky riders it is the Sky riders trying to punch the competition. Amazing scenes!

So, you don't believe Dumoulin has a chance to win Ed?

I mean if the Sky couple starting to attack each other, Dumoulin for me looks better than in the Giro and he might gain advantage from the situation I reckon.

That's before the first Pyrenees stage though.

Sure Dumoulin has a chance but 2 minutes is a significant lead and I think Sky has a stronger team, though of course they are now one short. It looks like Froome has given up in order to support Thomas.

Yeah, Maguire already won his match 4-1 and I guess Williams will do the same although he's sometimes unpredictable, nice 'sure' bets those but a bit low in odds which is not exactly my style.
Good luck mate.

I think Tour the France was nowhere near the Giro when it comes to intrigue and excitement but still it's been an interesting enough race.
Sky have been the dominant team again(winning fourth big tour in a row) and at times they pretty much closed the race which make is to not so exited for the yellow jersey.

Any expectations about the upcoming Vuelta Ed?
With Sky leaders out of the race they surely won't be dominant of a team so..it should be an open and exiting race then!?
I'm really optimistic about Richie Port's chances this time..I really think it's his turn to shine especially after the ridiculous way he should of left the tour...the fortune should be on his side now after so many unlucky occurrences about him over the years.

The Vuelta started without both Sky Leaders and I think they probably won't as much dominant as they were in the past years at the big tours.
That should give the rest of the teams the believe that they could win it..I think but surely must be an interesting race.
Too bad to see Porte and Nibali are too far away from the form both raiders obtained at the tour but it's a long race let's hope in the 3rd week they would in a lot better shape.

I haven't been keeping up with the cycling since the Tour de France ended. So I just had a quick read of what has been going on in the Vuelta. It's no surprise that guys like Porte and Sagan are off the pace after crashing in the Tour, they probably lose a bit of conditioning while recuperating.

The US Open tennis has started. Did you see #1 women's seed Halep is out in the first round?

Yeah I realized just yesterday the US Open have already started Ed, I heard of the Halep's loss but don't know any details about it.
Just saw the last few games of Dimitrov's clear 3 set loss to Wawrinka (no surprise there I think) and saw a couple of points of the Murray match - he's obviously back in shape and if he's as fresh as I'm expecting him to be after the long absence he could be a threat for anybody I guess.

Another decent upset in the womens: Muguruza gone today in the second round.

And Murray lost to Verdasco, so there goes that threat. You got him with the kiss of death straight away!

Yeah I'm really good at that, maybe he wasn't even 100% physically too but I saw just too few fractions from his first match and didn't realized it then.

The women's tournament should be unpredictable as ever in the last couple of years.

I didn't saw any matches, do you think it would be Serena this time?

I don't know if Serena Williams is back to her best yet. Funny enough she has to play her sister Venus in the next round. Wozniacki is on the other side of the draw and must be feeling confident of winning now with Halep out.

I'm looking forward to seeing the tantrums when Kyrgios plays Federer next round.

Yeah but Wozniacki is out now Ed, this time you came with the kiss of death Wink

I think she made a huge mistake (and her results prove that) by dismissing her old coach, the only one who bring a GS title to her, I don't know the reasons for that but when you achieved your biggest success ever after so many failures before that you want to keep that partnership at any cost no matter of the differences in the opinions, like Murray has been desperate to bring Lendl back.

Maybe that would sound like a stupid prediction but I would say it's pretty much possible that Wozniacki has already won her first and...the last title from the GS, you never know of course but this is usually what happens when you're not analysing properly what led you to success.

There wasn't much of a fight in the matches you've expected Ed, Serena won easily over Venus while Kyrgios played decent just in the third set of his match against Federer and even a few exhibition shots in that.

The guy needs a really good coach and psychologist or coach - psychologist or all these (2 or 3 won't be too much Wink ) to canalize all his emotions and in fact he start to use his full potential and talent, that would be an enormous task for anyone.

Did you see how the chair umpire got down and started calming him down while Kyrgious was in one of his furious moods in the previous match and after that in fact he played his best tennis.

It was weird of the umpire side to do that and in fact it's debatable if he influenced the end result of the match!
But the most important conclusion for me from all that is that Kyrgious aggression could be directed with the right approach...if the player himself wants that at all!

Just to say it's a boring US Open till now and I saw Millman defeated Federer, what a shock a?

Obviously the guy playing tennis of his life, probably the least expected Australian to reach that deep in both men and women's draws, is that right Ed?

Another shocker in the women's draw though, Sharapova who I thought playing really well so far (from what I've seen which is not so much) and I thought she would be amongst the top favourites of winning the title this time....apparently not.

Yeah I saw the umpire situation with Kyrgios. Very strange and if I was his opponent I would have been very upset with that. I think he needs a lot more than a psychologist. He is what you get when you tell a kid all the time that he is special and going to be the best in the world. He turns out to be an entitled brat man-child who has never actually grown up.

Millman is all over the news here as probably most people have never even heard of him before. One stupid news bulletin on TV said that it was the greatest sporting upset of the year which is clearly ridiculous. But its what I have come to expect from Australian media whenever an Australian does anything remotely good. He is a top 50 player which means he is an excellent player who could beat anyone in the world on the right day. Good luck to him, I hope he can back it up tomorrow against Djokovic.

The women's draw is bizarre this year. Stephens and Pliskova were the only top 10 seeds left and Stephens just got smashed by Sevastova. Maybe you're right and it is Serena Williams tournament after all.

In fact I've seen a couple of matches of his before but I never realized his in fact Australian,probably just didn't pay attention to that.

If he can do that then I would vote for the sporting upset of the year too...probably Thinking but I think it's very unlikely, like you said on a day a player of his class could beat anybody but repeating that performance is a whole different matter I think..more so against the recently high flying Jokovic...here it is Ed..I'm doing what I can to help the Millman's cause Wink

Yeah the women's big slam tournaments have been crazy all the way since Serena's absence I think
and maybe even before that and despite some of those have been won by a high ranked seeded players there's been a number of upsets in any of them,.
US Open's no exception of course and I would like to see a couple more in the matches to come but...Serena winning comfortably so far and despite I haven't seen all the players there would be tough for anyone to stop her this time I believe.
By the way S. Williams and Sharapova being seeded 17 & 22 respectively also helping that, and of course they would be a top 10 players in usual circumstances.

How would you comment Serena's hysterical behavior the other day at the final Ed?

I was stunned to know the size of her fine...$17 000...wow, this is not even pocket money...

Yeah I've read some quite ridiculous articles about her tantrum claiming that the umpire was being sexist or even racist. I don't know how anyone could come to that conclusion unless they already have a huge chip on their shoulder. Her behaviour was out of line and she was punished according to the rules, nothing else.

After reading that other players had been fined 6 figures for similar things in the past it sounds like she has gotten off very lightly with that tiny fine.

I feel sorry for the winner Osaka. She's just won her first grand slam and all anybody wants to talk about is the tantrum thrown by the runner up.

I didn't read anything about it yet but yeah... what could be the easier excuse than the umpire is a sexist and a racist...ridiculous really.
I've expected Serena to be punished with some time off the court except of a huge fine but...

Osaka has shown a strong nerves, not typical for a 20 year old, well done to her!

The Vuelta was an exiting race and it finished with a...5th!! straight win of a British cyclist in the big tours.

I'm at a volleyball now as Bulgaria hosts the men's WC along with Italy...not too optimistic but following closely the tournament...Australia also participating and doing decent so far - 1w/3losses Tongue

Ah man that is a shame. I enjoy watching volleyball but I did not even know this was on. It's a pretty low profile sport here and I've just been trying to find if it is on TV but apparently not. I'd have to pay for an online streaming subscription to watch it.

Looks like Australia won a few games but they are out now?

Here in Bulgaria the Volleyball is definitely sport N2 in popularity, after football of course, mainly because of the strong men's national side and generally we have a great history in this sport too despite the fact we never winning anything...

To be honest Ed, I didn't saw any of the games of the Australians as they played all of their matches in Italy and here at the local TV the coverages has been only from the Bulgaria's based groups but from the results I think they've done quite well in the first group but after that in the second one the level of competition was maybe a bit too high and they've lost two of the matches 0-3, but in fact won against Slovenia which played at the final of the last Ech here in Sofia too, so a great performance overall I think.

Just for the ice hockey fans here this next message.

Recently I found a site where you can watch all the NHL games recorded i.e all of your favorite team games from the current season in full completely free, there's a single pop up add loading when you start the video but apart from that the site is clean and I think it's great cause I've been looking in such for years since most of the games being conducted during the night here.

So the best part is you could watch a game that you've missed in a time convenient for you and skipping the commercials and inner periods breaks.

The quality of the video is in HD or whatever you wish to adjusted it.

Stopped watching basketball a few years ago!

Don't worry Dustin, the Kings are almost as sloppy as the Red Wings this season and I still use to see every game...don't know why really...maybe I'm a masochist?!? Joking

Why you hate basketball man..maybe because it's a lady's' sport!?

How about baseball?
