Re: ex top 30 Gala León García is the new Spanish Davis Cup captain

If anyone cares, this woman has translated most of the interview in her tweets:

She does add her own editorial comments in some of the tweets.

Re: Li Na Retires

I'm sad to see her go although I'd rather she retire than play in pain. She won two Slams and that isn't easy to do. I hope she and her husband have a blast during her retirement.

Re: Y'all made Allie Kiick sad

I could care less if she dislikes Obama or is a Republican. Her AIDS tweet was vile and no amount of "apologizing" can take that back. She needs to get thicker skin. Don't tweet out hateful crap then...

Re: Disappeared players.

I want to thank everyone for this thread. I find it to be the most interesting thread around because I like to keep up with players that I haven't seen in a while - it answered a lot of my questions.

Re: Who will win USO SF:Serena or Maka?

Makarova is tough and I know the commentators keep bringing up the fact she beat Serena at the Australian Open a few years ago, but I think Serena wins this in straights. I will be shocked if she...

Re: Does anyone even notice grunting anymore?

I think I notice it more when a player is quiet :lol:,

It seems like more and more players are grunting, even on the men's side (I know this is ATP, but Marcel Granollers has the absolute worst...

Re: WTA: Women ready for five-set matches in Grand Slams

Maybe they can try bringing back best-of-five for the end-of-the-year WTA final just as a trial run to see how it goes.

Re: Who is the best gold badge WTA umpire

Eva clearly. She doesn't mess around.

I don't mind Kadar but he doesn't explain himself (or the situation) very well when a player has an issue with a call. He usually ends up confusing the...

Re: P. Mac fired by USTA.

As others have said, this is loooooong overdue. He kept the job this long because of his last name - that is all. Anyone else would have been shown the door a while ago.

I like the idea of...

Re: "Erratic periods" troubled Stephens last year.

This article makes Sloane look like an airhead and ungrateful - especially during the part where she blows off signing autographs in such a grouchy manner.

I get that Sloane didn't want to sign a...

Re: Eugenie Bouchard is a complete bust for Wimbledon TV audience

Terrible numbers for both matches.If even Federer can't draw the viewers in, then tennis is in deep trouble. Even the worldwide numbers for both matches seem down as well, considering how popular...

Re: Is Eugenie Bouchard the new Venus Willaims?

Thanks for this thread OP - I needed a good laugh.

The Venus of 2000-2005 was an astonishing player to watch. She had everything - the serve, the movement, the angles, the placement, etc. Even now...

Re: Wimbledon Final 2014: (6)Kvitová slays marketing triumph (13)Bouchard 6-3, 6-0

Thrilled beyond belief for Petra. Hopefully she can keep this kind of play up - she slid off so dramatically after 2011. I didn't think she'd get back to a Slam final again.

Re: Venus vs. Kvitova was the REAL final

This was the match of the tournament - I dare say on both the men's and women's side. Clean hitting, nerves of steel from both women, great serving - this match had it all.

Re: Sharapova has upset India

The folks spamming Maria's Facebook page are a sad, pathetic lot. Is this how they spend their free time? If any of the Indian fans outraged at Maria can name two MLB, NBA, NFL, or NHL players they...

Re: New grass tournament in Mallorca from 2016

Agree with this. This helps the players who don't have the ranking points or fail to qualify for Birmingham. Having this tournament spreads the wealth a bit and gives lower-ranked players the...

Re: Kvitova and Stepanek are OVA. (UPDATE: Kvitova and Adam are BACK #112)

Glad she and Stepanek broke up. Glad she is back with Adam. Stepanek is a career killer for these women.

Wonder which WTA player Stepanek is targeting next.

Re: Which young star will go further in Wimbledon?

Bouchard is the best out of this young crop of players. Puig would be my second choice. Of course it all depends upon their draws.

I just checked Bouchard's twitter feed and apparently it will take place the same week as Birmingham.

Well hopefully the tournament will be a success.

Seles has always gone for men who have money. When she was a teenager she was hanging around...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol40

Yeah I do see the inconsistency. Hopefully she can work on that. But you make a great point about her loving the big crowds. The WTA needs more players who thrive playing the top players on the...
