Re: FINAL Australian Open doubles entry list

There are always withdrawals before the end of the first round. Multiple alternate teams got into every Grand Slam women's doubles draw last year, including three in Australia. Assuming they stick...

Re: The Official Schedule Discussion Thread

ESPN3 updated their listings and now have Court 12 instead of 5.

Re: US Open final entry list

Giorgi entering doubles with anyone is random! Cami's only played two doubles matches all year (including one in Fed Cup) so this comes as a really pleasant surprise. No doubt about that team being...

Re: Tennis-2011

Ahh, good catch. I checked the Petkovic and Kirilenko video threads for the first few days after the match, but it hadn't turned up there (or on any of the torrent sites) yet. I just repped mk27...

Thumbs up Re: Tennis-2011

Just want to post a double thank you to dos Santos: generally, for doing so much great work already this year and specifically, for the Petkovic-Kirilenko match. :bigclap: I hadn't found that one...

Re: Kournikova and Hingis discuss their careers, future prospects and the SEWTA

Yeah, Hingis was pretty impressive last night until the fatigue set in. I'm covering all six of the Team Tennis matches she's playing in Albany this month. If you're interested in detailed match...

Re: US Open: Q1 Sharon Fichman def. Petra Cetkovska 1:6, 7:6(5), 6:3

I was there for most of the 2nd and 3rd sets. Truly horrendous collapse by Petra, who easily could have put it away 6-1, 6-4. Her serve abandoned her (perhaps because of the wind) and the rest of...

Re: Which "mixed" doubles match would you rather pay $$$ to see?

Anything with Tarango and Rodionova is music to my ears. Jeff won a round of qualies in Indianapolis a few weeks ago, so I'm sure he'd be up for it.

Re: ESPN amateur production

Given that they only interviewed one player before the match, I'm not sure ESPN is aware Sharapova has an opponent.

Re: great news on martina hingis :)

It really would be cool if she swallowed her pride and came back the way the other Martina did, as a doubles specialist. Hingis was the best doubles player of her generation and could probably still...

Re: Olga Puchkova Doesn't Know The Score, DOES Know Fish?

I watched the WTT final on TV and that entire women's singles set was bizarre. Murphy Jensen ran out to reassure Olga after just about every point. Her teammates were leaving the bench, too -- at...

Re: TTC Archives

If the same thing happened yesterday, my hunch would be Tennis Channel takes the archives down temporarily so they don't attract eyeballs away from the first airing of "French Open Tonight". That's...

Re: Monterrey: Fujiwara/Scheepers defeated Mashona Washington/Dekmeijere 7-6 (5), 6-3

How funny was Fujiwara after the match? Jumping around, waving her arms, yelling out every Spanish phrase she could think of. Definitely the most enthusiastic interview I've ever seen after a first...

Re: 700 pictures from the US Open

Most of the shots I haven't already posted are messed up in some way (blurry, back turned, etc.), but here's the one bonus pic I was able to come up with.

More than 300 pictures from US Open qualifying

I attended the first two days of qualies and came away with a whole slew of photos, including about 80 players from the women's draw. I've attached a few sample pics (of Brengle, Dentoni, Gullickson,...

Re: Wertheim's U.S. Open Predictions

My favorite prediction is actually in the men's draw analysis, where Wertheim picks Marcos Baghdatis as a darkhorse. Considering Marcos is injured and pulled out of the Open weeks ago, that's going...

Re: USO Q2: M. Larcher de Brito (POR) def A. Spears (USA) 62 75

Michelle was actually out practicing on Court 11 around 7:30 yesterday evening, looking pretty miserable. Nice to see she got it together in time for today's match.

Re: US Open QR1 (11)Yaroslava Shvedova d Corinna Dentoni 6-7(3) 6-2 ret.

From the chunk of the match that I saw, Shvedova was the steadier of the two. She fought back from 2-5 in the first set, mainly by keeping the ball in play and drawing errors from Dentoni....

Re: US Open Q1: Anne Schäfer def. Oxana Lyubtsova 6:4 6:2

In two full days at the qualies, Anne was the happiest looking winner I saw. She had a big, delighted smile on her face for several minutes after match point. When a couple fans who'd been rooting...

Re: US Open QR1 (11)Yaroslava Shvedova d Corinna Dentoni 6-7(3) 6-2 ret.

Corinna rolled her ankle while hitting a backhand winner to open the tiebreak. She went down immediately and stayed sitting on the court for a LONG time, even after the trainer arrived. She actually...

Re: Ivanovic, Golovin, Knapp: doubtful for the US Open?

Mattek's playing both draws in New Haven, so I think she's OK. What I find interesting is Bychkova coming through the qualifying there, potentially setting up a conflict with the US Open qualies....

Re: Ivanovic, Golovin, Knapp: doubtful for the US Open?

Considering she still hasn't played singles on the hard courts, I'd imagine Davenport is questionable for the Open. I'm also wondering about Harkleroad's status. Ashley pulled out of Montreal with a...
