That was a heavy beatdown and Stan didn't even play at his best.

Only 15 winners and 30 UEs from Murray are a disgrace for a QF at the US Open.

Murrya is a disgrace to tennis, so i'm glad he's gone. The US Open has gotten more interesting now

I feel very sorry for you, Ahmed.

Anna's retirement is bad news for all fans of women's tennis.

Maybe Mona wakes up and can help you out with some nice wins in the upcoming tournaments.

Thanks Heiko. Yup, I still have Mona at least. Hope she won't be forced to retire like Anna or her sister.

It wasn't unexpected Anna retired, but still shame. Such a shame Anna didn't produce a better run at Wimbly, deserved better. One of the few players with flat/deep groundstrokes whose game was suited for grass, the faster the courts the better. Only I remember when she lost to Kuzzy on grass, that Kuzzy's power game was the difference. Not that Sveta was the better grass courter. Therefore Anna managed to win the Kremlin Cup, another tourney suited for Anna's flat groundstrokes.

From what i read, Mona's sister had to retire very soon in her young career because of a shoulder injury and had only played a few ITF tournaments. She was a left-hander and according to an official of her home club she was regarded as more talented than her young sister (i am pretty sure that Mona got underestimated during her youth).

So if you look at this story, you can say that Anna at least could enjoy a lot of very nice moments in her career by winning 8 WTA-titles. Unfortunately she could not fulfil all of her potential. I personally think that the brutal robbery in her home at the peak of her career in 2007 had a much bigger influence on her career than all her injuries, but that's just my opinion.

I am not quite sure whether Mona can become some sort of a successor because Anna's talent was huge. But at least she won in Hobart and in Paris, just like Anna did.

Do you know what Anna is going to do now?

Thanks (to Melange as well)! This is indeed a very interesting interview with a profound young woman. Given all her experiences and her personality, i am pretty sure she will become a very good coach, especially for young promising players.

Interesting that she became a commentator on Tennis TV, so my subscription finally pays off. Hopefully she will comment a Mona match one day. It would be interesting to hear what she thinks about Mona's game.

Halftime in Dortmund:

BVB vs Hamburg 2-1

Our team is much better and was 2-0 up and then Hamburg scored a lucky goal.

Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan scored for BVB.

Shots on goal: BVB 15, Hamburg only 2.

And nonetheless the interim result is 2-2
