Re: Kim Clijsters elected for Hall of Fame!

So Clijsters is being lodged in the HOF.

Which means she has been retired for 5 years.

Which also means she either retired wayyyy too young or I am really f*in old.

That was probably the most in-depth, high-profile article about her 2002-2006 *situation* that ever appeared in print, anywhere. She refuses to discuss these days, mentioning that she's moved on....

You're absolutely right. Couldn't have said it better myself. She had so many opportunities for similar runs in the past (2012 Wimbledon win over Bartoli, Halep at US Open 2015, French Open 2015) but...

What a great idea! I hadn't even thought about it. Would be quite a reunion. Maybe if Mirjana's dubs ranking jumps appreciably in the next few months, Martina would consider it.

Re: Doug Adler axed from AO coverage after 'gorilla' comment

PC insanity run amok. The guy already indicated that he was speaking of guerilla warfare, speaking of Venus as if she were a warrior on attack. It was a perfectly acceptable use of the word in that...

Re: AO R3: Mirjana Lucic-Baroni def. Maria Sakkari, 3-6 6-2 6-3

Truly an amazing win and tournament from Mirjana, no matter what happens next.

She has never played well in Australia, and to come here now, after everything, at her age, and get these wins ......

No. She will retire before she wins her first Slam.

Re: AO R2: Lucic-Baroni dumps Radwanska quickly out of AO 63 62

From MLB's press conference:

“I know I have some good tennis in me still, that’s the reason I’m still out here at 34,” she said. “I’m not a spring chicken for sure. I’m playing because I’m...

Re: AO R1: Lucic-Baroni d. Wang 46 63 64

Truly meaningful win for Mirjana. It's a big deal if only because she could have lost this contest had she played with just a fraction less focus.

And what a milestone --she hadn't won a main draw...

Re: Are WTA and ITF killing each other?

I frankly don't know how the WTA even stands on its own as an independent entity, anymore.

Forget the fact that the tour has had to seek consolidation via more and more "combined" men's and...

It certainly might have mitigated her circumstances. She would not have lost face by disclosing it; the substance was perfectly legal, and her medical reports would have been strictly confidential.

Re: Maria Sharapova Makes Tour Comeback in Stuttgart

Her "substance" was perfectly legal for years and years and years.

She had every right to take it for all those years while it was legal, even if she was taking it to give her body a physical...

Plus, she has always been a huge supporter of Serena (and of Venus, for that matter.)

Re: Gail Falkenberg to play 2017 season

But sometimes it takes oddballs to inspire, or to catch a story.

Re: Who is the greatest active slamless player?

Hmmm. Woz and J-Jank will never win a Slam. Aggie could definitely still sneak through to win one. Halep could, too.

But they need to do it soon.
