Re: Is Radwanska's latest tweener one of the best ever?

No, the best ones are the ones that are winners, not just shots that keep the player in the point.

Obviously.

Re: Is Halep's game too easy to counter?

To add to the above post, she has no weapon. There's no one shot that she can consistently rely on from match to match. Even Wozniacki has her backhand.

There isn't anything for other players to...

Re: Australian Open R1: Rogers def. [4] Halep 6-3 6-1

Pretty funny also to see Halep fans acting like Rogers was just peaking, and that that was Halep's bad luck.

First of all, Shelby didn't by any means play a perfect match. She was efficient sure,...

Re: Australian Open R1: Rogers def. [4] Halep 6-3 6-1

Oh come ON, how are Halep stans still dumb enough to buy her injury bullshit???

She pulls this every early/embarrassing loss. She was running around like a jack-rabbit out there, she simply...

Re: NZ journalist drags Williams sisters, Wozniacki for not trying their best in Auck

The most insulting part of this article is the arrogance of the journalist writing it, who clearly knows absolutely nothing about tennis and probably watches it for 2 weeks a year, as illustrated by...

Re: Sydney R2: Caroline "Sunshineniacki" Wozniacki: df. Putintseva 60 75

The absolute cheek of Wozniacki to criticise someone "tennis-wise" in comparison to the rest of the top 100, when without her stamina her own tennis ability would be near the bottom of that list too.

Re: Bouchard laments the ugly side of beauty

Absolutely untrue, and even if Maria did come across as arrogant at times, at least she was doing so as a consistent top 5 player, with a tonne of media attention. Bouchard is a nobody both inside...

Re: Final Round: Best Grand Slam Match In the last 10 Years (2007-2016)

I really don't think Vika - Kerber is up to the standard of a lot of the other matches here. Nor Sharapova - Safina, but at least that one is remembered still I guess. Vika - Kerber was a good match...

Re: WTA Story of the Year 2016

Isn't the presser a large reason for why she was able to get her sentence reduced? And avoid getting hit with a 4 year ban in the first place? Certainly helped her keep her sponsors too. It could...

Re: Players react to Shazza's drug test + reduced ban (latest: Chrissie)

I shouldn't be surprised. Stosur can't even ever give a half smile to Maria at the handshake when she's inevitably lost again. She's obviously pretty bitter about that H2H.

Re: Players react to Shazza's drug test + reduced ban (latest: Chrissie)

Stosur in ruins that her master is coming back to spank her around the court again. What a surprise.

Foolish move Sammy.

Particularly given that she was nursing a lingering forearm injury the first few months of last year anyway.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 102

Didn't Halep fans use to go on about how great she was in comparison to Vika and Pova due to her lack of grunting and go as far as to compare grunting gamesmanship?

She's just as loud these days,...

Re: Roland Garros R16: [21] Sam Stosur def. [6] Simona Halep 7-6(0) 6-3

How can any supposed top player say that they don't care about losing a match at one of the grand slams.

This girl will never have a champion's mentality.

Re: Is Roland Garros the real #4??

US Open is by far the worst. Weather is only slightly better than Wimbledon the last few years, and there's always awful winds which make for the worst tennis.

Also the final set tiebreak can rob...
