Re: Hua Hin R2- N.Hibino def E.Kulichkova 6-4 6-4

I agree with you totally - great shots but hopeless as a match player. She loses so many close games and matches. Her tiebreak win-loss record was 2-17 earlier this year, that must be one of the...

Re: Zhuhai event shows why ATP ahead of WTA

Zhuhai should be scrapped. The whole tournament makes a mockery of the YEC, especially as it gives a WC to a dud Chinese player - there should be no WCs given to this sort of event. I do not think...

Genie just seems to have stepped straight out of one of those Agatha Christie novels where she is horrible to everyone and so they are all suspects when she is bumped off.....I've got it, Eugenie...

Re: Johanna Konta: I’ve had to dig deep and find where my happiness comes from

Great interview - Johanna's progress in 2015 has been the unexpected pleasure of British tennis this year. For a player who seemed rooted in the 100s to break through into the top 50 and the way she...

Re: Cincy R2: Player of the week AK Scmiedlova dismisses Irina Begu 6-1 6-3

Great to see her bringing her best tennis to a premier rather than just the MMs she has been excelling in this year - a sign that she has designs on moving up towards the top 30. Looks so fragile at...

Re: ITF Prague 75k QF: (7) Torro-Flor def. (WC) Vaidisova 75 61

Agreed. Today's result and performance may be disappointing, but the most important thing is that she has used these WCs the last two weeks to reach qfs of 2 $75ks and push her ranking up into the...

TB Tizzy - Kulichkova 1-15 in TBs this year!!

Just checking Elizaveta Kulichkova's tiebreak record and her 7-6 7-6 loss to Marand this week means that she is 1-15 in tiebreaks this year. The only good news is that she won the most important one...

Re: American Aphrodisiac Allie-MUG Kiick is at it AGAIN!

So sad that one of the $30 crowdfunders calls her 'Allison' instead of Alexandra!!! Oh dear! :tape:

Does she really look like a Habsburg gone wrong with that jaw problem - why didn't she do a side...

6 $25k Beinasco

Re: Is Robson injured?

Oh dear - lost Stefkova 5-1 retired, so presumably injury or illness. :sad:

This comeback is not going well so far, let's hope it gets better from now on and whatever caused the default is not too...

Re: ITF Granby $50K R1: Laura Robson def Naomi Osaka 76 67 63

Great win for Laura - first of her comeback and against the no 2 seed of the event, with the top seed being Johanna Konta. I watched Osaka at Wimbledon qualies and she looks like a raw talent but...

Re: Which WTA journeywoman would you like to see rise in the rankings.

I don't think you can call anyone who is in the seedings of a grand slam a journeywoman and certainly not the likes of Garcia or Mladenovic. A journeywoman is a player of modest talent but who...

Lucie Safarova is the only one of 2014 quarter-finalists to have made the second week of 2015 - Kvitova, Bouchard, Halep, Strycova, Kerber, Makarova and Lisicki all lost the first week in 2015.

Re: Wta Stars Try British Slang

I think this is a bit of a cursed video as all these players have said 'Cheerio' to Wimbledon in the first week, despite being seeded to reach the second! :eek: And I think the words 'gobsmacked'...

Re: Wimbledon R3: (15) Bacsinszky def. (18) Lisicki 6-3 6-2

Really terrible performance from Lisicki, sad to see the Wimbledon spell broken and her importing some of her worst tennis to SW19. She almost hit the baseline with one serve. Chris Bradnam described...

Re: Wimbledon R3: (20) Muguruza def. (10) Kerber 7-6 (14-12) 1-6 6-2

What an epic match, especially the 83 minute first set which was longer than Kerber's first two matches combined!!

Such a marvellous contrast of styles, and amazing how Garbine held on faced with...
