Re: Maui 50k F McHale d. Kingsley 6-4 4-6 6-4

No doubt she will (if Christina even ends up on the team), though McHale did lose only 3 games against one of Poland's Fed Cup singles players two days ago :p

It's kind of amazing how Christina...

Re: Players who never retired AND never gave walkover in the whole career

From tennisexplorer data (because it's much more easily parsed than WTA/ITF), these are the players in the top 200 who don't have any retirements/walkovers listed sorted by number of matches played:...

Re: Auckland R1: Falconi def. Vandeweghe 5-7 6-4 6-3

Actually, it's kind of the opposite. Irina got coaching between the 2nd and 3rd set while CoCo was taking a bathroom break. CoCo took sooo long that Irina asked to go too and Irina actually returned...

Re: Could a team competition be included in the Olympics?

I clicked the first option, but specifically I think FedCup should be cancelled in Olympic years and played instead at the Olympics in a modified format (maybe 16 team draw, 3 rubbers per match).

Re: Jamie Hampton to comeback next week at WTA125 Carlsbad

I would like to be optimistic as a big Jamie fan, but it's almost surely this. She last played in January 2014 (technically week of Dec 30 2013). If she doesn't come back within 2 years, she cannot...

Re: Is tennis the top sport for women in your country?

The WNBA's average salary is 72k and the season is also only 4 months long during the summer. Meaning the players can either get a "real" job for the rest of the year or make easily twice their WNBA...

Re: Sporcle Quiz: WTA Players of 2015

The WTA uses the IOC country codes, so it would be most clear to use those.

South Africa: RSA
Malaysia: MAS
Latvia: LAT
Montenegro: MNE (MON = Monaco so this was by far the most confusing for...

Re: No Serena in RACE ranking, fair or not

It's pretty dumb imo. Obviously no one outside the top 20 or 15 or whatever it is now is going to be going to Singapore either.

They need to make up their mind - either it is a list of points...

Pretty high quality post-match racket smash by Gibbs, but then they cut the stream so we didn't get to see the full tirade :sad:
