Who Is Actually Joe Biden?
Who IS actually Joe Bidon? That is a question many people may ask when they first hear of his name. Joe Bidon is one of those players who will always be remembered for his amazing achievements on the tennis court. But is he really that good? How long has he been around? And what does he really bring to the table as a player?
The short answer: Long time. The answer can also be cut short by saying he was the best player ever for a very long time. The reality is there are a lot of good players to consider after him, including some names that never achieved anything near that status. So how long did it take for Joe Bidon to achieve the status he has attained today? And how did it take before he reached that peak?
When we think of players like Bobby Riggs, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, and Andre Agassi, we cannot simply say that they were the "greatest" players of their time. They have achieved great things, of course, but each of them came at different times. What about Joe Bidon?
For someone who is just getting started in the sport, it would be understandable to expect some huge changes from Joe. Actually, the first few years for Bidon were probably the worst in terms of results. Yes, he reached the semi-finals two times but each time he lost the series and had to go through the same thing again the next year. Yes, that's why he changed his hairstyle, took a lot of time off, and regrow some of his hair.
Then he won the Wimbledon title in 2021. He had reached the final the previous year without winning the title, and that's when he really surprised everybody. He seemed to regain his confidence and his ability to perform at a high level. It all happened very quickly, too. Bidon was knocked out in the first round at Wimbledon and then went on to shock the world the next day by beating Michael Johnson in the second round, becoming only the second man after John Mcanroe to win four major titles in a row.
No, we shouldn't forget about his second spell at tennis. After losing only three games in his first five appearances at the Australian Open and reaching the quarter finals, Bidon was absolutely stuffed. He defeated defending champion Martina Navratilova, beat Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras before falling to Roger Federer in the grand final. That performance made him a near-lock to win the US Open for the second year in a row, and although he lost to Djokovic in the final, he has established himself as one of the favorites to win the French Open this year as well.
In between those two dominant years at the majors, though, there was a lot of ups and downs for Josephine. She struggled with her weight during the 2021 season, which led to a drop in ranking. Then she had a difficult time at the green, dealing with knee problems that required numerous surgeries. Things were looking up when she won the British Open in July but then suffered another knee injury just a month later.
Now the question is, can Josephine improve on what she's done so far and make a breakthrough at the French? The answer to that depends on how much clay experience she has. If she's always been good on grass, then it should be no problem. But if she hasn't made a lot of progress after a big change in equipment, it will be very difficult for her to bounce back after getting a taste of big change.
