Re: Daniela Seguel's father dies as he watches her daughter's match

Horrible thing to have happen and according to the article posted Daniela's brother was the one who had to drive his father to the hospital. Hopefully the rest of the family will figure out a way to...

Re: Lux F: Monica Niculescu slices Petra Kvitova to death, bagels her, 64 60

Moni had a rough season, with a herniated disc sidelining her for over a month, without even being able to practice and then playing catch-up all through Wimbledon and the American hard swing. Can't...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 103

That was just Rennae Stubbs who's actually very close (she's usually good about players outside the top 20). Hopefully some producer clues in the rest of the crew...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 103

Everyone on ESPN has apparently agreed the way to mispronounce Konjuh is Kanye, like Kanye West. :facepalm:

Re: US OPEN R1 : Monica Niculescu thwarts BZS 6-3 6-7(3-7) 6-1

I know Strycova gets pretty vocal when things don't go her away, but the number of mini hissy fits she threw in this match was impressive. She really did not adjust well to the change of pace between...

Re: Florianopolis R2:#127 Ana Bogdan puts last nail into Jelena Jankovic's coffin 6-2

Technically, she made a 125k semi back in 2014. http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-Archive/Archive/Draws/2014/1059.pdf

Re: Washington SF: Wickmayer over Putintseva 64 62

Re: Bucharest R2: [1] Simona Halep def. [Q] Isabella Shinikova 6-4 6-3

More like one of the older 150-250 ranked players trying to make it to Slam MD level. She had no expectations today and seemed pretty relaxed in general. That Dascalu match was super tense since the...

Re: After 12 years on tour, Jennifer Elie reaches her first Challenger final

I remember seeing part of the match with Julia Elbaba for the US Open qualifying WC. She chased down balls that looked like sure winners so many times! Glad to see JenE finally made her first 25k...

Re: Ethnic Backgrounds of WTA Players

From what I've seen, college tennis players play some ITF's during the summer. It's an attempt to maintain (or get) some sort of ranking in case they decide to go pro after finishing all 4 years of...

Re: Ethnic Backgrounds of WTA Players

She seems to tan easily but that's not really that much of an indication -of anything :shrug:.

Re: RG R3: Kween Kuznetsova def Pavs 6-1 6-4

That is true but if you were planning a cakewalk draw, you wouldn't pick someone who played such a long competitive match against you just a month ago -and won. Lots of better options spring to mind.

Re: The new tournament in Louisville may be finished before it starts

Because bad management is not something that ever happens on the coasts.
If anything, smaller cities can do a better job focusing resources on smaller tournaments exactly because there are fewer...

Re: RG R2 Match of the Tournament: 3set Goat Begu edges Vandweghe 6-7,7-6,10-8

ajde = Serbian/Croatian.
haide = Romanian version

Might sound similar, but spelled differently. Carry on with the rest of the complaints about Irina cheering herself on at the end of a long...

Re: Madrid R3: [6] Halep def. [10] Bacsinszky 6-2 6-3

If you mean before they actually get to the net, then I have no idea, but Bine jucat and Bafta was all Timea said while there. Nice of her to break out a few Romanian phrases for the occasion, either...

Re: Madrid R3: [6] Simona Halep def. [10] Timea Bacsinszky 6-2 6-3

Re: Madrid R3: Begu def. Mchale 6-7(6) 6-4 6-4

Just remembered Halep-(super tired) Dulgheru last year in Rome. That one was a regular Premier 5, not PM, though.

Re: Madrid R3: Begu def. Mchale 6-7(6) 6-4 6-4

She's always been well inside Top 20 on clay. "Just" needs to catch up on faster surfaces now. Well done setting up an all-Romanian quarterfinal here. When was the last time that happened in a...

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

My point was that it's smart nepotism, so even when nothing good comes out of the WC, he can shrug and point to something justifiable and say 'felt it was worth a shot.' For the record, I thought...
