Re: Tennis Umpires Secretly Banned Over Gambling Scam

I get what you're saying. But the ITF firing two umpires and investigating four others without announcing it to the World could be seen as reasonable discretion on their part. If they weren't...

Re: Tennis Umpires Secretly Banned Over Gambling Scam

On the one hand it's disturbing to read that umpires have been involved in match fixing, but I'm not that concerned that they were "secretly" banned. Effectively these people have been fired by the...

Re: Fed Cup 2016 play-offs. Draw tomorrow. Seeds inside. Who do you want to draw whom

That's not what I was saying but then you probably know that since you edited out what I was actually suggesting they should do.



Even then though you'd still have problems, not least the...

Re: Lock up your sons: Naomi Broady wins 100K Midland def Robin Anderson 6-7(6) 6-0 6

Julie Salmon's career high ranking was 125 according to the WTA website. I remember her losing to Steffi Graf at Wimbledon. She won 3 games I think, which was 2 more than Monica Seles managed when...

Re: Fed Cup 2016 play-offs. Draw tomorrow. Seeds inside. Who do you want to draw whom

Thanks for the clarification. However I'm now even less impressed with the seeding system.

It's pure madness to award Romania zero points for losing 2-3 to the Czechs and Australia 1600 points for...

Re: BOMBSHELL!!! Top Spin 4 announced!

Not at all realistic. Domi serving with new balls and not giving them so much as a sniff?

Re: Fed Cup 2016 play-offs. Draw tomorrow. Seeds inside. Who do you want to draw whom

Not keen on the seeding system to be honest. I'd prefer each tie to be a promotion/relegation affair with the four teams who lost in World Group each up against one of the teams who won in WG2....

Re: Fed Cup WG 1R: Karolina Pliskova leads Czech to 3-2 win over Romania

Petra losing both her rubbers wasn't good but it cost nothing. Had they lost the tie as a result of her performances then I think it would have really hurt. This tie wasn't a positive for her but it...

Re: How big is actually the difference between winning a GS and YEC?

The ATP have had issues over the years with withdrawals, particularly with players who were in the Davis Cup final the following week. Nadal skipped the whole thing in 2008 to prepare for Davis Cup,...

Re: Fed Cup WGI 1R: CZE def. ROM 3-2 (Pliskova/Strycova def. Mitu/Olaru 6-2 6-3)

They now have five players available who have been crucial to their winning a Fed Cup final. Three have won deciding rubbers (Pliskova, Strycova & Hradecka) and two have finished the opposition off...

Re: How big is actually the difference between winning a GS and YEC?

Personally I wouldn't rate it that high. As long as you have the top players there then a deeper field is a stronger field. The four PMs and Rome are more impressive wins for me.

Re: Fed Cup WGI 1R: CZE def. ROM 3-2 (Pliskova/Strycova def. Mitu/Olaru 6-2 6-3)

That's sad to see. This was always going to be a huge ask for Romania in the doubles. Not only are Barbie and Karo a better doubles pair than any combo Romania could put up, they also have the...

Re: Lock up your sons: Naomi Broady wins 100K Midland def Robin Anderson 6-7(6) 6-0 6

Fair comment. I get the impression that it's her dad that's really dug his heels in though. He no longer speaks to his son, Liam an ATP player, because he accepted LTA funding. Naomi and her sister...

A meaningless distinction if it's achieved with points she's gathered while Heather was busy being British ;)

Re: Where do you see Simona Halep in four years?

Somewhere between the two options in the poll probably. I don't see her outside the top 20 (barring injury) but nor do I think it's likely she'll win multiple slam titles. For that to happen I think...

Re: Fed Cup 1R: CZE def. ROM 3-2

No Lucie, Petra really struggling both with fitness and form and the Czechs still win. They truly are invincible. :worship:

Re: Is CareBear HoF ?

Pretty sure O'Neil, Barker, Ruzicci, Majoli and Myskina aren't in the HoF and aren't likely to be.

Re: Tarpishchev to Sugarpova: if you don't play Fed cup, don't bother going to Rio'

Head, blue frame, lilac grip just like she was using at the Aussie Open. Yep, looks like it's one of hers, not a borrowed one.

Re: Is CareBear HoF ?

Sabatini was in a completely different class to Majoli, Myskina, Bartoli or Keber. In truth she was a much better player than most 2 slam winners like Li Na, Pierce and Mauresmo. Gabby was stopped...

Re: Fed Cup Nominations: BOMBSHELL Patriotic Simona DELAYS Nose Job To Compete

Hopefully she'll make it through the summer without it troubling her too much because this was probably the best opportunity she'll get before September. Certainly it wasn't worth postponing for this...
