Re: New site look and software upgrade Feedback Thread

The sidebar is annoying but the update seems fine for the most part. I mean compared to the RG and Wimbledon site updates this year, this might have to be considered an amazing success.

Re: What's the North American definition of 'journeywoman'?

For purposes of articles by moron journalists like Chris Chase and other mainstream media who don't know anything about tennis, this is exactly what it means.

Of course, someone who actually...

Re: 36 tournaments within a year.

36 is pretty mediocre. Cohen's record was 43 or something.

Re: Quebec City R1: Pegula def. Gibbs 1-6 7-6 7-6

Pretty high quality post-match racket smash by Gibbs, but then they cut the stream so we didn't get to see the full tirade :sad:

Re: Mary Joe Fernandez: "I hate when players say 'I got nothig to lose'"

I tend to agree.

Of course I also hate when journalists and pre-match/on-court reporters (e.g. Mary Joe) ask players pointless questions when they darn well know the only possible PC response is...

Re: Congrats Venus Ebony Starr Williams, New College Graduate

There are some 15 or 20 WTA girls in this program at IU East now (Alla K, Falconi, Rodionovas, Lepchenko, Duval to name a few), so it's pretty exciting for the WTA to have its first player graduate. ...

Re: US Open R1 (Q) Jessica Pegula def Alison'6 matches losing streak'Van Uytvanck 7-5

Just saw bits and pieces but AVU looked sooooo bad. Among "future #1"s, she seems to be following in Caroline Garcia's footsteps.

Jessie was solid and it looks like she's definitely dropped some...

Re: FINAL US Open doubles entry list

This is surprising? She's basically become the Julia Cohen of the doubles circuit with 36 tournaments on her ranking and a losing record for the year. It was a nice try to enter with USTA fave Davis,...

Re: FINAL US Open doubles entry list

So most of the wildcard teams didn't bother to enter? I guess they don't have to, but curious to see who ends up getting those spots.

I'm kind of expecting most of the players who got "snubbed"...

Re: Washington R1 (2) Samantha Stosur destroys Kristina Mladenovic 6-2 6-2

Sam probably expended more energy trying to hold up that awkward 500th win cake than she did in this beatdown. She looks sharp.
