Re: USTA Reinstates Taylor Townsend's Funding (article)

I followed the link to the interview with Navratilova and Davenport about the issue and it was interesting how they both commented on how attitude is more important than weight and it bothered them...

Re: USTA: Junior #1 Townsend too fat to play on our dime

It's ridiculous. They should base their decisions on her results and nothing else. There have been players whose results suffered when they lost weight, haven't there? Ivanovic is one who comes to...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol18

What justification did they give for not letting Haas play?

I just can't bear to even follow along as poor maria gets beat down. There is not a flicker of hope in my heart.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol18

It's not over for Kirilenko! She and Petrova could still... oh, wait. Maybe not. But couldn't they win the bronze?

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol6

Ugh, y'all have convinced me to try watching this live, but the livestream on the AOpen website won't work, even though I am in the U.S. and have one of the required cable providers! Where else can...

Re: WWW AO Final: Battle of the Shriekers [3]Vika Azarenka vs. [4] Maria Sharapova

Ugh, I may be the only one who feels this way, but I hate to see either of them lose this one. I think Sharapova is due, but I would like Vika to win her first.

Re: Which players are besties and which players dislike eachother?

Why does Sharapova hate Peer? They seem like they would be in such different circles that there would be no point to even having an opinion one way or the other.

Re: US Open R3: Ana Ivanovic b. Sloane Stephens 63 64

I like Ana a lot, and I wish she would return to form one of these days, but I think that Serena is going to DESTROY her.

Re: Indian Wells 3R: Safina double-faults her way past [4] Stosur 7-6 6-4

I am so so so so so so so so excited. It seems like forever since Dinara won at all, much less won twice in a row, much less three times in a row. You'd be excited too if one of your faves went...

Re: Have you missed Serena WIlliams on the tour?

Serena is awesome, but the crazy unpredictability of the tour is sort of fun right now... it seems like anyone could win at anytime. If Serena was around, she'd be winning the slams, period (except...

Re: AO Women's Wheelchair Singles R1: Esther Vergeer d. Sharon Walraven 6-0 6-0 in 38

I thought this was an awesome article about Vergeer hitting with men's player Aisam Qureshi - http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/news/articles/2011-01-23/201101231295787078352.html

Re: Is there a Schiavone Band wagon?

I've liked her since she won some clutch Fed Cup match for Italy... like that La Lionesse nickname. Sad to see her beat Sveta though, who I like even more!

Re: Sveta's Post-Match Interview :bowdown:

This is how I am with Serena! I don't get it either... I think she's so funny and cool, but I never really root for her - perhaps because she's won so much already, and is such an indomitable...

Re: Venus Describes Inspiration Behind Her Dress

I loved Venus's unconventional dresses last year, and I was totally happy to give this one a chance, but I finally saw a pic of it and it is 100 times worse than my worst expectations. Beyond the...

Re: Brisbane R1 Ksenia Pervak def. Anna Chakvetadze 62 62.

Sort of funny that Pervak makes it to the second round and Pivovarova doesn't.

Re: Losses that destroyed players' careers?

I can't believe no one has mentioned Kournikova vs. V. Williams at Lipton, I think it was. That was her chance to get the "never won a title" thing off her back, and I think once she lost there,...

Re: Another Tennis Player Poses for Playboy!!!

I wonder if because golf and tennis still have somewhat of that "country-club" sport association, there is more fear of lingering social stigma?

Svetlana calling Serena Serenka is cuter than a basketful of kittens! :)

Re: Who will win the GrandSlam as the first - Jankovic or Dementieva?

I wish that they would both win at least one, but I just don't see it.

Re: Pablo Giacopelli stops coaching Shahar Peer

Serena's tweets to Oracene are so cute. I love how much she loves her family.
