Re: Doha SF:(4) Spears/Srebotnik def. (2) Mirza/Strycova 63 16 10-8

Time for another try together? :oh:
And what better tournament than Indian Wells, where it all started for them?

Re: It's official! Hingis, Chan Yung-Jan Partner Up

Not so sure about this - YJ is not really a power player, and Hingis needs a hard hitter to set her up. Vandeweghe seemed better from that perspective.

But all this is theory I guess :lol: - it...

Re: WWW Australian Open 2017 (draw inside)

This section is just so strong - Mattek-Sands being tested early in her stint as no 1 :lol:

Wonder which version of the Williams show up?

Re: Brisbane F: [1] Mattek-Sands/Mirza def. [2] Makarova/Vesnina, 6-2 6-3

Great win!

Winning a tournament to give up the no 1 position - Mirza doing it in style!

Thoroughly deserved by BMS - she had a great year in 2016 and it was only a matter of time. Is she...

Re: WWW Singapore?

True! They have had a very dismal record against this team for some reason :D

It is a tough draw for the top seeds - difficult first round and then BMS/Safarova next.
Conversely, it couldnt get...

Re: Who will end the year as No 1?

Top 11 tournaments count for doubles. Hingis has 305 points from Stuttgart as her current 11th best performance. Even if she wins the Kremlin Cup, her points will increase by 165 (=470-305), not...

Re: Who will end the year as No 1?

I think BMS/LS are the favorites to win the YEC - they are in such great form.

The draw will therefore play a critical role - the key question being which half BMS/LS land in.
If they are in...

Who will end the year as No 1?

It is going to be the closest No 1 finish in quite a while :D

A look at the contenders:

Hingis, after losing early in Beijing, is out of the race. Mirza, BMS, Mladenovic & Garcia could...

Re: Wuhan R2: Krunic/Siniakova def Hingis/Vandeweghe 67 75 10-7

Yes, H/V were leading 7-4 in the super tie-break when strangely they lost 6 points in a row. Did anyone see the match - what happened there?

Re: Guangzhou SF: Lapko/Govorstova STUN Legend/Empress 6-4 3-6 10-8

Absolutely no certainty about the #1 ranking. Hingis / Garcia / Mladenovic all have a chance to take it from Mirza.
Hingis could be No 1 if she reaches the finals or wins either Wuhan or Beijing,...

Re: Mirza slagging Paes

I am sorry - but what is the basis of these statements?

Mirza's tweet was perhaps the best single line response to Paes' statements, and 'toxic' perfectly sums it up. Here is WHY:

Re: The Top 60 Doubles Rankings - Updated 5/24/16 - Roland Garros!

Update possible? :)

With CG/KM closing up and Mirza/Hingis having so many points to defend, would be interesting to be able to work out possibilities for YE No 1 in different scenarios.

Thanks!

Re: USO SF Garcia/Mladenovic d. Vandeweghe/Hinghis 6-3 6-4

KM/CG also have a fair chance, considering the amount of points Hingis and Mirza are defending.

It will be a fun few weeks :lol:

Re: US Open QF: (1) Garcia/Mladenovic def. (7) Mirza/Strycova 7-6(3) 6-1

Yes it was infuriating - they wasted so many set points on Mladenovic's serve at 5-2 :o And it was that particular hold that really gave CG-KM the confidence back and they reached a different level...

Re: Cincinnati F Mirza/Strycova d. Hingis/Vandeweghe 7-5 6-4

Hingis is such an accomplished player, it makes the insecurity of (some of) her fans on this forum seem really hilarious. :lol:





Firstly, Coco is ranked higher than Strycova (22 vs 38),...

Re: When will Santina Break Up?

She wont be solo no 1 even if she wins this - their best 11 results already are >= 470 points. Winning is unlikely anyway, since this is a random pairing (and don't both of them play the forehand...
