Re: Flavia retiring!

I was going to post a poll question about this possibility a few minutes ago but I was waiting until the ceremony finished. I'm not surprised by this at all considering her this achievement, her...

Re: what Simona can learn from Vinci

I like your ideas about the slice but I wouldn't act like Vinci has cracked the Serena code (no pun intended). If Serena & Vinci played 100 matches against each other, Vinci would be lucky to win...

Why does the WTA have the No.1 seed & No. 3 seed in the same half of the draw?

This year the draws for both Indian Wells & Miami have the number No. 1 seed and the No.3 seed in the same half of the draw. Conversely, the ATP has them in the opposite half of the draw which fits...

Re: Is there such a thing as a clay-court game?

I don't think Nadal has a clay-court game, I just think his style of play works best on clay and his movement on the better surface is incredible. Also, a big factor is that most of the other...

Re: Forbes:2014 List Of The World's Highest-Paid Athletes(Sharapova,Li,S.Williams on

Whenever the Forbes list comes out it makes me wonder why more young female athletes don't consider trying to play pro tennis. I'm certainly not making the case that achieving the results, fame, and...

Most Likely to Reach Their 1st Slam Final in 2015?

Every season from 2007 to 2014, at least one woman has played in their first grand slam final. We had three slam final debutantes this year - Cibulkova, Halep, Bouchard). Assuming this trend...

Re: How many more seasons you believe Williams sisters will play?

I would not be surprised if they both decided to retire together at the end of the 2016 season. If Serena is able to get to 20 slams in 2015 though, she may decide to aim for Graf's 22 or even...

Re: Best teen prospect?

Bencic. She's already made a fairly deep run at slam (QF at US Open). Mentored by Hingis but Belinda has more power than Martina.

Re: Simona Halep: was she dumb?

Your point illustrates why I have somewhat mixed feelings about the position Simona was in. A 3-set loss was the worst outcome because Serena stays and Simona loses ranking points and prize money. ...

Re: Who Was The True #2 of 2014, Alize, Vika, NaNa, Maria or Simona?

Agreed. Since the OP limited this to 2014, just look the points accumulated in 2014. Sharapova is the choice

Re: Will Halep become a permanent Runner-up and never a Winner?

So Simona has no future because she lost a final to the greatest female player ever who even at 33 is still far and away the best player on the tour when healthy? :confused:

Give me a break.

Re: Billie Jean King says that the WTA tour needs more women coaches.

I think another big reason for mostly male coaches is that these ladies have likely been been coached by men their entire tennis lives. Most of them were probably introduced to the game by their...

Re: Which is more difficult to win?GS or YEC?

A slam is harder to win. You have to win 7 matches in a row with no margin for error (other than being able to lose one set in a match). You could still end up playing three top-8 players from the...

Re: Is It Time For #2 Simona To Step Up Like Na And Reach A SF/F Against #1 Serena?

Since Simona reached #2, she and Serena have only played in the same tournament twice (Cincy & US Open) so it's not like they've had a lot of chances to play each other recently.

If you want to...
