The "Flavia's not the only tennis player in the world" thread

I thought it'd be nice to have an "off topic tennis" thread - for all our tennis talk that's not related to Flavia. Our other faves, general tennis stuff, etc.

Great initiative (as always!)

Just saw this one. How is this different from the other off-topic thread? We're not allowed to talk about tennis in the other thread? Just the trashy stuff goes in there.

^Is this one of those I-love-to-organize-things impulse of yours? BTW, funny thread title.


Madrid's scheduling is kinda weird. Just saying.

Re: The "Flavia's not the only tennis player in the world" thread

Someone posted a thread in GM and I felt like the OP read my mind. You usually can tell which matches will be played next day based on the current round but Madrid seems so random. Are they showing livestreams for non-show courts?


Who's playing in Rosmalen? Flavia better be playing there as you're going there right?

Re: The "Flavia's not the only tennis player in the world" thread

They have streams for MS, ASV and court 3, but the times seem a bit random Hard to tell what they will show exactly. Will get easier when I have actually time to watch, I guess

Usually it's a bunch of Italians, Slovaks, Czechs and Belgians I'm having my fingers crossed for Flavia and Sara And the rest of my faves. So not too many Slovaks and Czechs please
I'm going sat-tue so plenty of time for stalking if they play

Re: The "Flavia's not the only tennis player in the world" thread

It's easier to watch if you don't have to worry about getting some sleep like I do. RG is so near now yet I fear that I will be missing most of the early daytime matches because I'm still at work. Sigh.


Sat-Tue! That's a lot of matches to watch! Can you video some of them?

Speaking of Slovaks, no Cibulkova please.

Re: The "Flavia's not the only tennis player in the world" thread

Madrid's coverage just sucks no Sexa-Sara today
Rome will be sooooo better they will even show doubles matches
lately Azarenka is growing on me but her grunt s just too annoying
btw i have a question about tennis rules
yesterday Roddick and Cipolla played a tb, Cipolla was up *7-6 and 2 serves which he lost both while Roddick on *8-7 served it out with 1 serve
who start to serve first in the 3rd?

Franny vs Sara is on on Centre Court and yet no TV coverage.
Did you bet on Franny?

Doubles matches coverage. Dulketta better get their act together by then so I can watch them.

I used to be like that about Vika. She was a bit too spoiled without the results to back her up when she started on tour and that grunt is really annoying. But I've been sort of following her results when she was still in the juniors then I got back to liking her when she finally settled in being a pro.

I'm not sure about this but what I know is that if for example it was Cipolla who serve in the last game before the TB, then it will be Roddick who will serve first in the third set.

Straight sets win for Franny eh? Ruthless prediction.

Re: The "Flavia's not the only tennis player in the world" thread

I'm the unique person to find funny Vika's grunting? I mean, there are worse ones Sveta and Petkovic are boring for this points of view, Vika makes you be always careful about the match is going
Howewer, which players is, in your opinion, the most boring to watch? I pick A. Radwanska
