Re: RG R1: (WC) Georges def. McHale 6-7(7) 6-0 6-3

Ugh, so crushing. Christina has had such a good spring. Unfortunately, she played an opponent who treed and probably had the day of her career today. Christina was as tight as a drum in that third...

Re: RG R1: [Q]Golubic def. Riske 6-2, 1-6, 6-2

I was at the match live. Golubic was incredible on the run. Some of the passing shots she hit were just superb.

Disappointing loss for Allie. She had momentum after playing a much better second...

Re: Former top junior player Krista Hardebeck painful letter: Cracked, but not broken

Woops, I most definitely meant Davidson, you're correct. I also think Lampl has one of the highest ceilings of anyone on the team. She's got great groundies. I expect her to contend for a high spot...

Re: French Open QR2- Fiona Ferro defeats Vania King 2-6 6-3 6-4

What a shame. Missed opportunity. Really hope whatever she went off court to get treated for isn't serious.

Re: Former top junior player Krista Hardebeck painful letter: Cracked, but not broken

I agree with this post. Kristie is actually on the way up. Really hasn't been on the tour very long. It'll be interesting to see how far she will go. It was honestly a good decision in hindsight to...

Re: Former top junior player Krista Hardebeck painful letter: Cracked, but not broken

Thanks for uncovering this. I'm really sorry that Krista had to endure these hardships. It sounds like she has had to learn some tough things about life off the court in a hard way.

Krista was...

Re: Nürnberg R2: [7]Anna-Lena Friedsam def. Christina McHale 6:4 6:3

Thanks for the match report Adrian! Makes me feel better about the loss. Was a completely different story a couple of weeks ago I suppose. The important thing for me, as a Christina fan, is that she...

Re: Nurnberg R2: [3]Annika Beck d. Nicole Gibbs 6-2 6-1

Nicole has a history of being rather agitated on the court, despite her charming off court personality. She's done a lot better with her attitude lately, but she hates the clay. Not surprised if...

Re: Roland Garros QR1: Vania King def (4) Patricia Maria Tig 6-2 2-6 7-5

This was a really poor draw for Tig. Vania has spent several years in the top 100, is on a fairly quick upward comeback from injury, and has been doing well in doubles. One of the best unseeded...

Re: Arina Rodionova "wins" Roland Garros WC. Should Australia give up vulturing GS WC

A lot of people crack on the wild card reciprocal agreement. Personally, I know it has been an amazing thing for the development of many American hopefuls. Nowadays, many USTA WC winners actually win...

Re: Whats up with Christina McHale?

She's finally regaining the spark, confidence, and game that made her look so promising in 2012. Many people don't know or don't remember that she had mono which stopped her momentum completely in...

Re: Allie Kiick diagnosed with skin cancer

One thing after another for this poor girl. A year ago she was looking like she was really moving in the right direction with success on the green clay.

Re: Madrid: Cirstea vs Kovinic scheduled on 'Manolo Santana' night session

FYI, as some have already mentioned, but Madrid/Spain in general has a pretty sizeable population of Romanians. When I was at the tournament Saturday-Monday, Patricia Tig's matches drew more crowds...

Re: Madrid R1: Sloane Stephens def. Teliana Pereira 3-6 6-3 6-2

Sloane started out of the gate hot and then just went dead. So flat, stopped being aggressive, slapping at the backhand return, and letting Pereira dictate. And when I say letting Pereira dictate, I...

Re: $50K Charlottesville R1: (WC)Townsend def. (3)Peterson 6-4, 2-6, 6-3

Well, I'm happy she's getting wins. She's too talented to be toiling away in ITF qualies and losing to/struggling against unranked/low ranked juniors and journeywomen. Her natural talent is evident,...

Re: OFFICIAL Retirements - 2016

That was such a classy retirement post from Lauren. Good to see a lot of USA girls providing love, respect, and support. I think she made a wise decision. The chances of her being able to crack top...

Re: Prague R1 (WC) Marketa Vondrousova def (Q) Oceane Dodin 6-3 6-2

Vondrousova is one of those players that is just a complete package. Confident ball striker yet not a BBB, good serve, nice touch with drop shot and volleys. I was really impressed when I saw her...

Re: Rabat R1 (LL) Sara Sorribes Tormo def Ons Jabeur 6-0 6-2

Jabeur has been stagnant for quite some time now. Didn't think she'd be a world beater, but I thought she would be a solid top 100 player.

Re: Rabat R1 (8)Yulia Putintseva def Alison Riske 6-3 7-6(1)

Bummer. This was winnable. Alison started out the year so promising in Shenzhen.

Re: IW r1: Anni Beck def. Beth Mattek-Sands, 6-2 6-2 wow

Bethanie has been awful in 2016 so far, so this result doesn't surprise me. Disappointing? Yes. Shocking? Hardly.

Re: Indian Wells R1: King reigns over Townsend 6-2 6-3

100% agree. That first step was the hardest for her. A lot of posters mentioned how effective it was to hit behind her, and that's very true.

Moving forward though, she's very quick to anticipate...

Re: IW 2016 R1: Lauren Davis def. Nao Hibino 6-2, 6-4

A must win match for Lauren. From what I watched, she was getting a lot of help from Hibino. Looks to me like she's just not striking the ball as cleanly as she was in '13 and '14 when she really...

Re: Indian Wells R1: King reigns over Townsend 6-2 6-3

Vania should be back in top 100 in no time. Very good to have her back!

As for Taylor, she should take a lot of positives from this week. She won the prequalifying event and then qualified. She...

Re: IW R1: Carina Witthöft def. Irina Falconi 0-6 6-4 6-4

Watched most of this match. Horrifying stuff really. Irina was solid in the first set, actually quite brilliant at times with her touch, but Witthoeft was AWFUL. Witthoeft was bad, but less awful, in...

Re: Indian Wells PQ final: Taylor Townsend def. Sofia Kenin 6-2,5-7,6-4

This is how she should be working her way back into form. She needs matches. Going to get way more confidence from having made it through pre qualifying than if she had just been handed a QWC. Hope...
