Re: WTA players on the blacklist of the TIU

We need an Integrity Unit to monitor the Tennis Integrity Unit. The ITF ought to step in and investigate how such a leak could occur. The WTA and ATP can't be too happy about this situation either....

Re: BREAKING (?) NEWS: Anna Chakvetadze is done with tennis

December 4. I have my doubts she will even be campaigning much. Can't say I blame her for accepting this offer as an election would secure her a well-paid job by Russian standards for the next 5...

Re: BREAKING (?) NEWS: Anna Chakvetadze is done with tennis

Right Cause will need to pass 7 percent for Chakvetadze to get elected. There is no chance of this - especially when they come off as desperate enough to nominate a tennis player with no recorded...

Re: Anne Keothavong criticises Serena

Can't really find any flaw with what she's saying - except for the "let's think of the children" line, which is a little awkward when you think how much tennis historically has been branded on the...

Re: Serena Williams fined $2,000 by US Open

There won't be any investigation into a $2,000 verbal abuse case. No chance whatsoever.

Re: Serena could be suspended from the tour, article says

The probation terms only referred to repeated "Major Offences". This is no longer an issue, and she can't be suspended for the next US Open. Asderaki is probably happy with this decision as well as...

Re: Serena could be suspended from the tour, article says

Serena will probably escape with a fairly modest fine for the verbal abuse - $20,000 is the maximum. A Major Offence is not likely as Asderaki clearly heard what was said and reacted with a single...

Re: CAS: "Wickmayer & Malisse Case" is currently suspended

In fairness, FIBA is not tied to the NBA in the same way the ITF is historically tied to the WTA/ATP. The difference between global tours that are frequently forced to play by international rules as...

Re: which players have the biggest boobs on tour?

Petra Mandula, retired in 2005. Somehow feels like she was on Tour more recently, but maybe it's because pictures like that pop up now and then.

Re: The Tennis Bodyguard: Williamses unfriendly, Davenport friendliest, Seles insecur

His poor recollection of something as well-publicized as the Spirlea-Venus bumpavaganza makes the rest of his anecdotes questionable. Can't see Sampras deliberately bumping into a cameraman either.

Re: Am i the only one who dislike Petkovic?

This reads like a tribute thread with so much unqualified hate. I've seen better outbursts directed at Sara Errani. Only one or two came even remotely close to a well-articulated tear-down screed....

Re: CAS: "Wickmayer & Malisse Case" is currently suspended

This reeks of desperation. They lost in the Belgian court system following similar legal arguments of questioning the legality and jurisdiction of the international anti-doping system. In that sense,...

Re: Karen Barbat in main draw this week in German ITF tournament

Sued her? I assume he has filed a complaint with the ITF - probably in an effort to soften the sanctions for his own case. Tamaela has herself admitted that she cursed at him and pushed him prior to...

Re: Piotr Greedniacki: Dad knows best for Caroline Wozniacki

Saying there is a new tournaments next week is akin to saying that there is a new day tomorrow. It's just a trivial saying to lift the spirits. There is nothing even remotely offensive in Piotr's...

Re: Prague Final: Magda "Bagelled in the semifinal" def. Petra "Top Ten" Kvitova 63 6

There is no reason to diminish a $100K tournament, or even Kvitova taking part. People seemingly have no idea about the cost and effort put into organizing a tournament of that size - and the...

Re: 2011 Roland Garros Odds: The Clear Fave To Win Is ...

There is huge over-round on these odds. Those 301 decimal odds for the biggest outsiders are for the most part way too low. Decimal odds on Wozniacki is 4.5, which translates into 22 percent....

Re: nouf's pictures barcelone & madrid 2011

I think Liga looks great - strong, fit, and sexy. There is no reason to hide that body. Good to see she is confident with her looks.

Who are we to say Cynthia is wrong? She is a highly creative individual and may instinctively have felt that Daniela's name needed a makeover. The silent 'h' is a beautiful touch for instance, and...
