Re: Rome R3: Kuznetsova def. Gavrilova 62 26 63

Nice clay court match, well played by Sveta.

If Serena does not perform well, she might even aim at another final here in Rome!

Re: The WTA is struggling

Farina-Elia once in a while said something relevant IMO: the depth of the WTA tour has definitely improved, and probably the overall level will always be higher, or at least a higher number of...

Re: The WTA is struggling

My god, I knew today could be a mess in Rome, but I never thought it could so bad. Of 14 matches, 11 with seeds involved, only 3 of them prevailed. This is really tough, every single week somebody...

Re: Rome R2: Babos outlasts (12) V. Williams 67(5) 75 64

Babos might be as annoying as you like it but she played a superb match. Venus actually played pretty well too to me, she served poorly unfortunately, she did not get many free points and it costed...

Re: The WTA is struggling

Totally agree with the OP. However, most of the players in the R3 of Rome look good clay courters to me.
The line-up seems interesting, even though most of the top10 will be missing...

Re: Rome QFR Alison Riske def Elena 'play 2 matches today' Vesnina 6-4 6-4

Agree she was a little unlucky with the schedule (also, they could have waited a bit more for the R2 match).
However, I saw part of the match and Riske was quite impressive, great match by her

Did it ever happen before (even counting Berlin for Madrid and potentially Warsaw for Stuttgart)?

Re: When cities love tennis: Packed house in Rome for Q R1

Way better today on GrandStand as well. Still far from being full, but at least there's a way better crowd today.

Re: Rome R1 (10) Carla Suarez Navarro def Mona Barthel 6-4 2-6 6-3

Sloppy matches at times, but actually both players finished with a clean positive W-UE record. Not that bad of a match then

Re: Rome R1 Queen Venus meets Cry me a river Siniakova 62 62

Fun match actually, Venus seems in good form. And I was positively impressed by Siniakova, definitely not a pusher. Great backhand and a good future ahead. Will have to improve her service though.

Re: When cities love tennis: Packed house in Rome for Q R1

I would stay in the middle. THere is lots of room for improvements still: the GrandStand is a useless court, I think it would be way better to get rid of the specific tickets for it, having the...

Re: WWW Italian Open 2015 ?

So let's say Serena withdraws before Monday. What would change with the draw?
Serena replaced by Sharapova replaced by Wozniacki replaced by CSN replaced by Muguruza?

That still would not be bad....

I think it is a little more complicated than that.

Of course Madrid is slowly improving, crowds are better now than a few years ago and the atmosphere has improved as well (even though when the...

Re: Miami 2R: Victoria Azarenka destroys (20) Jelena Janković 6-1, 6-1

Well it's not like Jankovic had bps in every single service game.

Also, Azarenka pretty much broke every time on her first bp, this is why she has less bps than Jankovic.

Re: 2014 is exciting, people need to move on

I would tend to agree with the Op.
Unfortunately, I feel these breakthroughs are mostly depending on top players' very weak performances.
Serena has been dreadful in Grand Slams, Li, Kvitova and...
