Re: Is a rally ending shot really an essential on clay courts?

I don't think Vika and Kim on clay is any type of comparison. The French was nearly Kim's first grand slam title, right about the time of her eighteenth birthday, and she's won in Hamburg and Rome...

Ya, that was obviously a blank on my part.

Please, that girl? The one that carried Pierce to the same women's doubles title at the same RG? The one who's career makes Pierce look ordinary? Not to mention the fact that that match went to three...

Re: Bug reports

I'm having some really serious trouble just posting in general, and it seems like it's all the additional scripts running because of the additional ads. The cursor will lock up, stop working, then...

Re: New site look and software upgrade Feedback Thread

This is probably the silliest question anyone has asked about the upgrades, but is there anyway for us to have that blue skin option again?

Re: Which back toback PM/P5 is hardest to win?

Well, the fields of all of those indoor events were generally that strong as well, not just Filderstadt and Linz.

Edit: And tournaments like Stanford and LA and Toronto also had great fields in...

Re: Which back toback PM/P5 is hardest to win?

It's definitely what helped get to her career high in 02, she had a great fall: finals of Bahia (lost to Monica), won Tokyo Outdoors beating Kim and Sanchez-Vicario, she lost in Leipzig, but then won...

Re: Which back toback PM/P5 is hardest to win?

I never felt that any two of the indoor events were a particular string, there was Zurich, Filderstadt (usually the strongest), Linz, and smaller events like Lux and Hasselt. I loved the indoor...

Re: Which back toback PM/P5 is hardest to win?

Oh you won't catch me saying Kimmie wasn't the best. I do think her run is the best as well, in 2005 overall, including indoors, she was 52-5, with eight titles. She lost to Venus in her first event...

Re: Which back toback PM/P5 is hardest to win?

I'd put it right near the top along with like Venus's run in 2000.

I remembered that it was coming back from her first wrist injury, I actually thought they were her first tournaments back but she did come back first in Antwerp. Her roads were VERY impressive. In...

Re: Which back toback PM/P5 is hardest to win?

I'm sure there are more than in singles, but I wonder how many players have been able to pull this off in doubles? Just because Mattek-Sands did so today. (And Hingis and Mirza did it last year).

Re: Which back toback PM/P5 is hardest to win?

OK, not making excuses, so don't talk town to me. I'm simply putting forward an observation. Also, it's cute that your example is from 80 years ago. If ANYONE traveled to Australia 40 years ago,...

Re: Which back toback PM/P5 is hardest to win?

I will say that if Serena had played like the thirteen Indian Wells tournaments she never entered there would be three (four, now Vika) women who had pulled off the IW-Miami double.

Re: Kurumi Nara flew to Charleston, WV instead of Charleston, SC

It doesn't matter how far from South Carolina it is, she's not driving. She has to go from Charleston, WV, to Atlanta, to Charleston, SC.

Re: Kurumi Nara flew to Charleston, WV instead of Charleston, SC

I will stipulate to this, because it's even annoying for those of us who are here. I went to college in Springfield, and people are like, what Illinois? I'm like no, 45 minutes away in Mass, duh.

Oh come on, it's not like she got off the plane and went wandering around aimlessly in the wilderness. And, anyway, statistically speaking, the Hatfields and their Romeo and Juliet feud with the...

Re: Kurumi Nara flew to Charleston, WV instead of Charleston, SC

It's not, as the crow flies, but she has a two pronged flight that goes way out of the way.

Re: Kurumi Nara flew to Charleston, WV instead of Charleston, SC

I'm not entirely surprised, I'm pretty sure I even heard of a player doing the same thing before (not at this event, necessarily). To be fair, she said the airports have the same name, and they...

Re: Which back toback PM/P5 is hardest to win?

I'd say IW-Miami, people have said the surfaces are similar, and that's partially true. They're similar in speed, in a way, though the IW courts are much grittier, and the ball reacts very...

Re: Is Courtney Nguyen one of the least knowledgeable tennis writers ever?

Do not be ignorant. That comment made by Nguyen was sexist and discriminatory, but in order for something to BE racist, it has to be discrimination based on race. So, no, I am not wrong.

While being undeniably wrong, that is not at all racist.
