Re: Slam QF without beating any top 75 player

What's your point? Keys won her four matches to reach the quarterfinals just like all the other players. It isn't Key's fault that the seeds in her section were eliminated early. I remember...

Re: Wimbledon is disrespecting Venus Williams

I don't know that Wimbledon is specifically disrespecting Venus. I am surprised that as a former champion she hasn't yet played a single match on Centre Court or Court 1 in the first three rounds. ...

Re: 2014 Tennis Hall Of Fame

Barely? You've got to be kidding. Lindsay won three slams, was a finalist in four other slams, was ranked number one in singles (for many weeks) and doubles, ended the year ranked #1 four times,...

It looks like I didn't wait long enough for the official picture. Here are the official portraits, not in front of the wavy glass wall. Andy and Marion look great!

Re: which smaller USO series event are you most looking forward to?

I always love the Bank of the West Classic at Stanford.

Re: Retrospective: Wimbledon Winners Ball

Marion looks awesome in this picture! I'm a little sad that they took the Marion/Andy pictures with the trophies in front of that weird clear/wavy glass wall. That wavy glass background in too busy...

Re: Is Marion greater than Agnieska Radwanska ?

These kinds of threads (especially when neither player is really one of the greatest players of her generation) are pretty pointless. Marion has achieved slightly more than Radwanska at Wimbledon,...

Re: Marion's major win isn't highly regarded

I liked what Mary Joe Fernandez said today when she said that history will not remember who Marion played or didn't play (except for her opponent in the final) in order to win her title. History...

Re: Y'all tried it with Bartoli

Marion played awesome today! Her reaction to winning was beautiful, and she was extremely complimentary to her team and to Sabine after the match. Very classy!

Re: WIMBLEDON Final: [15] Marion Bartoli def. [23] Sabine Lisicki 6-1 6-4

What disgusting comments. The world must be very depressing for you. There was no major controversy (thank God); there was just incredible sportsmanship between the two ladies. Sabine choked, but...

Re: Lisicki's and Bartoli's contrasting route to Wimbledon 2013 title

The fact that Marion's draw was harder than Lisicki's is not Marion's fault. It's not her fault that the seeds in her section folded before they reached Marion.



Exactly!

Re: WWW Wimbledon 2013 Slam Title Virgins Final: [23]Sabine Lisicki vs [15]Marion Bar

Both players have had their most success on the lawns at Wimbledon, so this has the potential to be a great match. I think both women have a realistic chance of winning, but for some reason I'm...

Re: Wimbledon SF: Bartoli makes the Final!!! def Flipkens 6-1 6-2

Exactly! If Serena killed Maria 6-1 6-2, which has happened, people would be saying, "Awesome display of power from Serena. Serena is the greatest of all time." I'm definitely not saying the...

Re: WWW: Wimbledon SF: [15] Bartoli vs. [20] Flipkens

Bartoli can't move anymore? Craziness! Were you watching her quarterfinal against Sloane Stephens? Marion was moving all over the court. She can't be out of shape with all the moving she does.

Re: Who would take her maiden Slam? Lisicki, Radwanska, Bartoli or Flipkens?

I think it would be fitting for Lisicki to win the title since she has taken down so many top seeds in the last few years. She is made for grass. For some reason, though, I don't really see her...

Re: What will you do if Flipkens Wins Wimbledon 2013?

If Flipkens wins, I'll marvel at her amazing journey to the title. She has overcome some huge physical issues and has enhanced her game, taking her from 200+ into the top 20. Amazing! She has a...

Re: Is the Wimbly semis line-up the worst ever in a GS ?

What makes Lisicki the "only legitimate winner" left in the semis? Did the other three somehow cheat their way to the finals? Ridiculous! The top women lost. It's okay, they'll be back very soon....

Re: Y'all tried it with Bartoli

Why is there so much hate for women's tennis players today? The four women who made it to the semis deserve to be there. Each of them played well today, and each woman could win the title. Maybe...

Re: Flipkens/Bartoli in Wimbledon final? I CAN'T

Bartoli has been in the final before! I don't remember tennis as we knew it being sucked into oblivion when that happened the last time.

Seriously, what is it with all the hate towards these...

Re: Is the Wimbly semis line-up the worst ever in a GS ?

No. All of the women in the semis deserve to be there. From a casual tennis fan's perspective, this is a bad draw because the ladies are more unknown to the general public. I think if people...

Re: Y'all tried it with Bartoli

Bartoli played very well today. I think she is definitely an underestimated competitor. For the record, I don't think she is out of shape. If you look at her side profile, she is quite thin. I...

Re: Wimbledon QF: Marion Bartoli (15) def. Sloane Stephens (17) 6-4 7-5

Congratulations, Marion! I thought she played great--very aggressive and focused. Sloane had patches of good play, and she defnitely has top 10 potential. She just seemed a bit listless at times. ...

Re: Sabine Lisicki the Roland Garros Champions slayer, 4 times in a row now!

I had forgotten all of those upsets. What a great history of upsets she has! Why is she such a non-factor the rest of the season? With play like today, Sabine should be challenging Serena, Maria,...
