MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Wimbledon – Day 6 gentlemen’s singles final results

Chris Eubanks is defending 360 points from last year's WImbledon quarterfinal effort. If he matches that result, he'll earn 400 points this year.

We went from an absolute buffet of matches every day to … eight men’s matches on Saturday.

Which means we’re back in track, although the weather Saturday had a say in the sense that the Tiafoe match couldn’t be completed.

In the battle of the unsung Chrises – Eubanks and O’Connell, the American got through a tight three-setter to make the second round of Wimbledon

(Wimbledon is five hours ahead of EDT).
