U.S. Open SF Preview

My delay in posting is because of work and because this tournament has very little intrigue other than wondering if one of these blokes has enough character to beat Rafa with his bag of tricks on full display at this depleted U.S. Open.

Yeah, I have a sentence or two about potential ills of said industry/tools, but I take aim here, again, at some of the participants/tools who use these global conversational mechanisms.
