Re: Sharapova/Meldonium Thread (2) - 2 year ban issued 8th June 2016

Since 2006 is all we can prove, that's all we can reasonably assume. Anything else would be pure speculation.

Re: Sharapova/Meldonium Thread (2) - 2 year ban issued 8th June 2016

Does anyone else find it funny that she had better success against Serena BEFORE the doping?

Re: Major announcement from Maria Sharapova tomorrow (monday) at noon...

If she was using the drug for a legitimate medical reason, why didn't she fill out a Therapeutic Use Exemption form?

Re: Navratilova is the real GOAT

In the beginning of her first career, she had Margaret Court, Billie Jean King and Evonne Goolagong to deal with. In the middle, there was Tracy Austin, Hana Mandlikova and doubles partner Pam...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 90

They've been playing no-ad scoring all year. Why switch it now?

Re: Mike Tirico

Before Djokovic and Bautista Agut took the court, Tirico said that Venus and Serena have combined for 29 major singles titles. I haven't taken a math class since 1982, but back then, 21+7=28. Is...

Re: USO R3 (1) S. Williams d (WC) Mattek-Sands 36 75 60

You're watching her play tennis, not having a political debate with her. One has nothing to do with the other.

"Extra grind" is code for "Novak Djokovic," yes?

Because I live within driving distance of Stanford, that's why.

Yes, because playing Stanford was such a hindrance to her winning the Open last year. :yeah:

Re: Serena Williams OUT from Stanford - Elbow Injury

Pulling this crap in Sweden is one thing, but now she's depriving me of another chance to see her in person, and because of that, I can't root for her to win the Open.

Where are people getting the $1 million figure from? That's Dubai money, not Bastad money.

If Serena even thinks about pulling this same stunt at Stanford, I'm breaking both her kneecaps.

Re: Kader Nouni fucked up again

He thinks the USTA doesn't pay the umpires enough, so he stays home. I don't know how much they get paid now, but in 2011 it was.....wait for it.....$250 per day.

Re: Is this the year Serena wins the Calendar Grand Slam?

If Serena wins Roland Garros, she would stand alone as the most decorated American singles player. If she were to add Wimbledon to that, she would join Rod Laver and Steffi Graf as the only players...

Re: Li Na announces on Weibo that she has given birth to a baby girl named Alisa!

Actually, learning English is mandatory in Chinese schools (as well as the Republic of China/Taipei/Taiwan), and students are required to choose a Western name. That's why Wang Yeu-tzuoo now prefers...

Re: Pronunciation of "Muguruza"

I watched the "Tennisography" documentary that Tennis Channel did on Garbiñe, and she pronounced the Z as a hard TH. Mods, shut 'er down.
