Re: RG SF: Jelena OSTAPENKO def Timea BACSINSZKY 7-6, 3-6, 6-3

Ostapenko is quite the enigma. She makes these faces of pure disgust/shock after a bad miss, but then calmly goes right back to smashing a winner in the next point :lol: It's impressive how well...

Re: Halep is '50/50' for Roland Garros after ankle scan

It's quite possible her injury mostly healed during the tournament, it was minor tear and she was lucky enough to get through matches quickly early on :shrug:

The whole "50/50" statement may have...

Re: What does it say - Agatha is 26-15 against the active top 5

Re: Margaret Court record that is most unlikely to be broken?

I understand the whole "yesterday vs today" argument, and I realize that at some level it's pointless to try and make a direct comparison between modern achievements and those of the past. You have...

Re: RGoF: Who will make a SF from the bottom quarter?

It's really Pliskova's to lose, although I'm not confident about her consistency on clay. And she might end up facing her nemesis Radwanska, that would be an interesting match.

Garcia or even...

Re: Serena, Sharapova, Wozniacki and Bouchard in ESPN's World Fame 100 Top Athletes

Considering the amount of replies every Bouchard loss thread gets here, I'm not surprised she's on the list :lol:

Why are the RG match highlights so awful?

It seems like the Roland Garros match highlights are getting shorter and shorter every year. Not only that, the video editing seems to be increasingly shoddy and erratic, which is pretty...

Re: Margaret Court mad at Qantas for supporting same-sex marriage – TA statement

She's really just another cookie-cutter homophobe who justifies her opinions through religious belief. The problem is that she has a public platform and can't seem to resist reiterating her views...

Interesting and deep-seated analysis. :lol: Any more professional TF diagnoses you'd like to share with us? I would like to know who all the other autistic players are.

Sydney QF: Bouchard breezes past Pavlyuchenkova 6-2 6-3

Quite a performance from Genie, very controlled and aggressive.

Perhaps it's time to climb the rankings again in 2017 ;)

Considering Bouchard's results in 2014 compared to Svitolina's, why wouldn't people have assumed that she would have a better career back then? :shrug:
