Re: Bombshell! Martina Navratilova fires Aga Radwanska!

Aga has stayed inside the top 20 for 375 consecutive weeks now (376 tomorrow). This is the longest current top 20 stay by any WTA player! And she's not going to lose her top 20 ranking for another 15...

Re: Most points won in a losing bagel set

I just checked the scores of the match. Pennetta won the first two games of the match (no deuces in those two games), so she lost 12 games in a row although she managed to win 45 points during those...

Re: Most points won in a losing bagel set

I don't remember the exact number of points won for each player but Wozniacki vs Pennetta in Doha 2011 was much closer than the score suggests (Caro won 6-2 6-0). Some games had 8 or 9 if not 10...

Re: FC Euro/Africa III: Caroline Wozniacki flops but def. Melanie Stokke 6-3 6-2; 1-1

Not the only positive, I think, but this attitude is nevertheless more to my liking. To be able to see the positives is (or should be) a quality of a top athlete. Sometimes a tennis player is...

Re: FC Euro/Africa III: Caroline Wozniacki flops but def. Melanie Stokke 6-3 6-2; 1-1

I partly agree, but only because the rules are stupid. But when the rules are the way they are, and Caro wants to make the Olympics, she might as well make the most of it.

And it actually makes a...

Re: Is it fair to get 210 pts to lose 3 matches at YEC? (almost the same as GS 4rd)

There aren't any free bye points. A player with a R1 bye doesn't earn R2 points if she loses her R2 match.

I haven't read the whole thread too closely but has anyone commented on the fact that YEC...

Re: Records of the Top 12 players against Top 30 opponents in 2014

Of course you can. You can make Fed Cup stats, Wimbledon stats, Grand slam stats, clay stats, WTA stats or whatever. If a poster happen to have acces to a limited sample of data, he or she is allowed...

Re: Records of the Top 12 players against Top 30 opponents in 2014

A few notes:

Ana had to face Serena five times in 2014, which makes her stats even more impressive, I guess. Caro faced Serena four times while no other YE top 12 player had to face Serena more...

I got lost in the part about Caro being closer to Venus' age than Viktoria was.

Re: Unluckiest player ? Caroline Übelhör draws #1 seed for 3rd week in a row !

It's easy. We're talking about two different cases.
a) The probability that #1 draws a particular unseeded player in R1 is 1/24.
b) The probability that a particular unseeded player draws #1 in R1...

Re: Sunshine has done a HUGE PR favor for the WTA

WTA actually donated a bit. The Danish Federation too. She also made the headlines at The Swedish Tennis Federation. So it''s definetely noticed. They're seeing this as a good cause.

Nice to see...

Absolutely. Plenty of massage will help too. It really cuts the recovery time by 50% or more.

Re: Pros when they were kids

Nothing wrong with Halep's picture. She's a kid and she's cute. Hagi was a legend - I still remember him from his outstanding play at the '94 World Cup. This is a few years after that of course.

Re: Will Caro eclipse the other athletes in NY Marathon?

Sure, but running a marathon at your max is quite stressful for your body. I guess some of her fans were hoping she'd be running at a more relaxed pace.

Re: Will Caro eclipse the other athletes in NY Marathon?

She's running for charity, in case you didn't notice. I donated 50$, and I know as a fact that some others here on TF have done the same (and unlike me without bragging about it ;) ). A lot of people...

Re: Who will be the next player to replace Serena as world #1?

Serena has won 18 titles in 20 finals the last two seasons. Noone will replace her if she continues that sort of form. Besides, she has more than 5000 points from AUG-OCT, so it'll be really...

Racket/ball impact at 45 degree angle in super-slow

Shows how spin is generated when a non-spinning ball hits an angled racket. Sort of cool, I think, to see it in super slow motion, although very brief:
