No chance of a livestream for these early rounds (or rescheduled qualifiers in this case), is there?

Re: Disappeared players.

Daiana's sister recently had a baby boy and she's been busy helping out. Hasn't played as many tournaments -nor anything above 15k level- as last year. Is on the EL for the 25k in Hungary next week,...

Re: Stuttgart QF: Sharapova def. Kontaveit 6-3 6-4

Not sure what the specific dispute was all about, but it does look like the WTA chose to interpret the Anti-Doping rule loosely. Or even break it, if you want to take a letter-of-the-law approach....

Re: Stuttgart QF: Sharapova def. Kontaveit 6-3 6-4

Erm, this rule is in the Tennis anti-doping program rulebook, not the WTA rulebook. Not sure how the 2017 edition qualifies as obsolete, but hey :shrug:...

Re: Istanbul QF Cepelova d. Yastermska 26 76(4) 64

And she gave up a point to go up 0-40 on Dayana's serve in the decider by correcting the umpire at the start of the decider. Class act :yeah:

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 108

She is spraying errors left and right, but I can see how people think she potential. Shout-out to Cepelova for correcting the umpire while up 0-30 on Yastremska's serve in the decider. She could have...

Re: WTA Website Relaunch - April 25th

Perfection itself :lol:. Sarcasm aside, this is really unprofessional. How can you 'launch' a defective product that was clearly not tested?

Re: WTA Website Relaunch - April 25th

Could be missing something here, but
Did they remove the option to see draws as pdf's?
Are they planning to add in the ability to click on someone's name in the draw and go to their bio page later...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

That's why I phrased the reverse discrimination part as a question. It could have also been read as Romanians have previously demonstrated little common sense in the thread, so whenever found we will...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

Isn't that close to reverse discrimination? Anyways, if it makes you feel any better about the opinions of regular Romanian fans, I was born there and still have Romanian citizenship.

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

And this is why you don't name self-aggrandizing pricks as Fed Cup captains. Nobody even asked Nastase about Serena's baby to begin with. He just had to speak up while Simona was answering. I think...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

I was giving her the benefit of the doubt since she didn't know what was actually said as Nastase was escorted off. From her press conference in both Romanian and English it sounds like she was under...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

She was referring to Tecsor doing a great job leading the team up to that point and the fact Ilie Nastase did not really sound like he wanted to be team captain based on another interview. "From my...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

Expectations for spectators' behavior are very different than those for team captains. Someone in the stands can be thrown out for being disruptive without any warnings or point penalties being...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

She's definitely missing a big part of the picture since she's not aware of what Nastase actually said to Johana and and Anne in order to get thrown out. It is possible she might change her mind once...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

How is the decision to suspend play Jo's fault, though? The officials were not always in full control of the situation, I agree. Jocelyn Rae had to get their attention to give the microphone to...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

I have seen plenty of point penalties given for abusive language used by players, as long as a line judge or umpire actually heard it. One recent example is Smyczek against Pella in Miami on the ATP...

Re: Kimiko!comeback

Is she still planning to play in Gifu? She's not on the EL from what I can see, but maybe she's getting a WC instead of using her PR as one of the articles stated?
