Re: Can Venus qualify for Singapore?

Venus did get the winner's/runner up bye so that should help her in Beijing. I think she has a good shot with the way she's playing.

The consistency is there and her mental game is probably the...

Re: Who will complete the Career Grand Slam in Mixed Doubles in 2016

Hingis. Federer still feels like he either has that gold medal left in him or a slam but I think he really believes he can beat Djokovic in best of three sets. So he's not going to focus on anything...

Re: Quebec R2: Naomi Broady def. Alexa Glatch 6-4 6-2

I never really understood Alexa issues with hitting a consistent two hander.
She's had surgery on the right wrist correct?
So what is stopping her from using the two hander where most of her...

Re: Which former GS winner will retire in 2016?

Stosur probably won't retire until 2017 Australian Open or even later. I feel like with Hewitt she feels like she has a responsibility to wait for the next generation of Australian players.

Re: Lisa Raymond retires from professional tennis

She was still a very good doubles player even until the end. Cara and Lisa really had a great shot in the QFs of Wimbledon.

I've always had a special place in my heart for Lisa. The Philly suburb...

I can't dismiss her because Lucic-Baroni is in the top 50. There is a slight possibility but it's not probable.

She won two titles at Madrid, a clay court with altitude which means the ball flies off the court. She does not like heavy conditions.

She's 15 in the world and her Australian final against Serena in 2003 was her best attempt without winning. Azarenka has won two Australian Opens with a similar game style.

I watched her win that singles match in 2010 at the U.S. Open. She had to be on one of last courts but her joy for winning that match was touching.

I don't know. They both move well but the issue could be that Timea's strike zone on both groundstrokes is waist high and up.
If so she is in some trouble.

That sliding and dicing defense she has been playing to win a good portion of her clay matches... Good luck with that against Maria.
