Re: 16 nations in Fed Cup World Group next year

Are they going to introduce final set tiebreaks in the Fed Cup? (Or reintroduce final set advantage sets into Davis Cup if they go to best of three?)

Re: The ball is in court?!?

That's quite astonishing. I think it must be a bit deceptive, though: the ball is still rising after 30ms so who knows how long it was falling, far more than the 13ms shown, for sure.

The ball is in court?!?

I have an awful feeling I'm posting this in the wrong subforum, but if so I have a blind spot as to the right one.

Mel South, now coaching at Bath and probably watching over her players at the...

Re: Indian Harbour Beach $80K R2: Bouchard d. Kalinina 7-5 6-4

Yes.

I got cold feet about my post, actually, but after checking a vid of one of the matches, I think it's right for this tournament. (Live, I only watch early rounds of low-tier events where...

Re: Indian Harbour Beach $80K R2: Bouchard d. Kalinina 7-5 6-4

There will have been another at this end underneath the camera, moving from centre line to the other sideline at the same time. The one covering the centre line on serve moves over to cover the other...

Re: 60K Istanbul R1: (WC) Eraydin def Robson 6-4 4-6 7-6(8)

At least in retrospect, it looks like she should have started at 10K level (15K in new money).

I half wonder if she can't face it because she has 100% record in lowest tier events--she's played...

Re: ITF announces professional tennis restructure

Here's the full IMF country list (plus a few extra I added in because I thought they had players playing on the ITF circuit, obviously without the average income figure), including those with no top...

Re: ITF announces professional tennis restructure

In an unwonted burst of energy, I did calculate players in top 253 versus average income. For no great reason, I used the IMF's 2015 figures (https://goo.gl/HexTm3). The ranking list is the current...

Re: ITF announces professional tennis restructure

The intent is surely the opposite. I'm not at all clear how it's supposed to work, mind you--maybe I should give the document a more thorough read.

I'm pretty sure the current situation isn't...

Re: ITF Board member to propose wildcard restrictions

Well, they could make it a rule of tennis:silly:.

No, I can't see the point, either.

Re: Player forum request thread

It has happened, and then it unhappened, because no one cared, or at least no one who mattered.

Re: The next G.O.A.T. Contender?

Historically, junior slam success has not really foreshadowed greatness. Maybe that will change in the future now pro careers seem to have time-shifted five or more years towards experience.

I'm a little surprised that you missed her story. She's a Brit, but couldn't cut the deal she wanted with the LTA after her family emigrated down under: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/tennis/13394586

Re: Who is the greatest active slamless player?

Poll says "best", thread says "greatest". Different things. If "best", there's any number of players that should be in the poll instead of Jankovic or Wozniacki.

Re: Its near the off season but I wonder, what's wrong with this Forum?

It left a hole in my life when the thread was closed. (I'm being at least semi serious, in afraid.)

Re: Sharapova Ban Thread [3] - Banned until 4/25/17

You've overstated the Panel's wording, although (speaking as someone who doesn't like the wording of the arbitral award(*)) I am not as sanguine as some about what they actually wrote, and think it...
