For once, I would love to see the LGBT partisans on the receiving end of their favorite label-and-dismiss gambit.

"Orphan-makers" might fit.

I'm not suggesting that we interrupt the parent-child relationships of same sex couples and their adopted kids. Obviously, they should love their kids and take care of them.

My objection is to...

Re: My Family's Fight For Equality by Casey Dellacqua

Notice how Dellacqua says that she and Amanda "have that lifetime relationship to each other through our kids".

Who are the genetic fathers of these two children that Dellacqua and her lesbian...

Petra was like 1 of 13 on break points in the third set. No excuse for losing that match.

Well, OK, maybe there is. We all know Maria would have lost if she hadn't double-dosed with Meldonium.

Re: US Open QF: Vandeweghe outslugs Pliskova 7-6(4) 6-3

I was really impressed with Coco's movement today. She showed good anticipation and squeaky clean footwork, running around to hit more forehands.

She has the purest service motion in the WTA,...

Murderers Row of Sluggers in US Open QF

Some really hard hitters are in the QF:

Ka. Pliskova
Coco Vandy
Keys
Kanepi
Venus
Kvitova

All of these, along with Muguruza, Safarova, and Sharapova (who lost in the R16), would have been...

re: Sharapova -Wozniacki feud escalates: "I'm in the 4th round,not sure where she is"

LOL @ people saying that only someone "pressed AF" would think she shouldn't get any wildcards. That's tame AF. Let me show you what someone "pressed AF" would really say:

Katerina was very weepy after the win, wiping away tears while in her hair waiting for the trophy ceremony to start. They didn't appear to be tears of joy. Anyone know what's up with her emotionally?...

Kvitova finished 2011 ranked #2 with 6 titles including Wimbledon and the YEC. And now KaPlis gets to #1 with fewer titles and no slams.

There's no justice.

Re: Will Azarenka or Sharapova Qualify for Singapore?

TBH, I'm scared that my glee over Pova's and Vika's absences is – in some weird kismet/karma/voodoo way – the reason why Petra was also put out of action by that knife-wielding criminal. Like the...

Re: Will Azarenka or Sharapova Qualify for Singapore?

God forbid that either of them play any YEC. I have enjoyed these months of quiet. I hate both these damned banshees so much.

Even though I don't admire her technique, I do like Konta. Pleasant, modest, unassuming personality, and evidently a hard worker.

Quite right. I am missing Kvitova badly right now. Konta-Woz was a display of two of the most artificial-looking, "taught" techniques in the game. Literally no shot looks natural. OK, maybe Woz's...

Re: Petra Kvitova 'Fortunate To Be Alive' After Attack By Knife Wielding Intruder

I'm very sad, and won't take nearly as much interest in the WTA until Petra comes back. It's a double shame because she had ended 2016 on a high note and would have been a threat at Melbourne.
