One punch, banned for life

I got the news that Tampa Bay Lightning had defeated New York Rangers in Game 6 (best of 7), 2:1 at the Garden as soon as I got out of the concert. It’s their 3rd year in a row into the Stanley Cups playoff. They have won the last two, 2020 and 2021.

A short video soon made the run on the internet: a Rangers’ fan (James Anastasio, 1993) in a red jersey sucker pouched a Lightning fan in blue after the game. The result came swiftly, and severely: he’s charged with two counts of assault and disorderly conduct and harassments by the police, and banned for life at the Garden.

In contrast, Tangshan bbq restaurant’s brawl was multiple men on one woman, and no one dared to stop the men.

Man on man
One punch 🤜
Banned for life

Cori Gauff

Coco started out as Cori – as seen here at Wimbledon in 2019 vs Venue Williams, wondering what made her to change her name to Coco.

Two finals

I got up at crack of dawn to watch Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula (1994-; 2009; $4.9m) vs two French women Caroline Garcia (1993-; 2011; $11m) and Kristina ‘Kiki’ Mladenovic (1993-; 2009; $12m), but was disappointed after the first set: the two Americans couldn’t get their act together any more, specially Pegula being passed left and right in the alley.

The two French women came back strong and won. They’ve many similarities: both were born in the same year in France – from their names, their origins suggest Spain and Yugoslav; of similar high and physiques, and prize income. They deserved the win and $620,000.

Rafael Nadal def Casper Ruud (1998-; 2015; $7.5m) easily: 3, 3, 0. It’s Rafa’s 14th on the red clay and 22 overall. Their respective royal family came to cheer them on: King Felipe VI (1968-; since 2014) of Spain and H.R.H. crown prince Haakon (1973-) of Norway.

The line calls at French Open

The second Wednesday in Paris. The line call continues to be a problem:

June 3 Fri, the first game of 3rd set between Marin Cilic and Norwegian player Casper Ruud (1998-; 2015; $6m). It was an OUT ball but the umpire ruled it was good, IN. The commentators noted the errors made by the umpires at French Open.

June 2: the 1st set, Coco Gauff vs Italian ah ah ah screamer Martina Trevisan. No call but Coco stopped play. It’s clearly OUT but the chair umpire, after a lengthy discussion, ruled it in.

June 1: the 5th set, 1 all, Marin Cilic (1988-; 2005; $29,829k; won 2014 US Open) hit a ball that was called out. The chair umpire got down, and ran to the point of contention, then confirmed it was indeed out. Cilic disagrees so much that Andrey Rublev (1997-; 2014; $11m) offered to replay the point. The tv replay shows the ball was indeed OUT.

Cilic: NOOooo way it was out … | hand and racket to thank Rublev |  … the hard stare …

The 5th set, 4 all, Cilic hit a ball that was called out. The chair umpire confirmed it was indeed out. BUT it was IN, IN, IN. The commentators giggled and said, it was the pay back for the above shot.


Although I’m glad that Cilic won but Rublev is quiet with a calm demeanor, very unnoticeable but likable, especially he offered the replay. Unfortunately his country under Putin is invading Ukraine, so I root against any player that has no national flag next to their names.

The first match of the day at Philippe-Chartrier was between two Russians, Daria Kassatkina defe Veronika Kundermetova. Both are quiet and quite good looking.

The winning streak 连胜纪录

Iga Świątek is having the time of her little life, winning 33 matches straight. Only behind the Williams’ sisters, Serena 34  in 2013 and Venus 35 in 2000. If she wins this tourney, she’ll tie Venus’.
