Re: Hingis/Mirza vs S.Williams/V.Williams?

If Serena and Venus are focussed on playing the doubles and not inwardly concerned about how it might affect a deep run in slam singles then they overwhelm these two in straight sets. If they're not...

Re: Karolina Pliskova is overrated lots to prove

I think she's already playing way better than most expected a few years ago. She still has loads to improve but her results on the regular tour will be giving her more confidence. The original post...

Re: Doubles Race to 2016 Rio Olympics - After Singapore (Hingis & Mirza Q for Rio)

Absolutely, with their Olympic history you find a way of getting them on, though I'm sure Venus will keep her ranking sufficiently high provided she has no health or injury problems. If they found a...

Re: WWW Zhuhai F & YE Top 10: Venus Williams vs Karolina Pliskova

Both are playing well, Pliskova is serving strongly, so Venus will need to look after her own serve. However, Pliskova has played three players who are renouned more for consistency than power so...

Re: Lux F: Misaki Doi wins 1st title def Mona Barthel 6-4, 6-7, 6-0

Deserved win for Doi. Barthel's lack of fight in 3rd set was shocking. She's supposed to be a pro athlete.

Re: Hongkong R1 (3)Venus Williams won last 3 games def (LL)Yuliya Beygelzimer 2-6 6-4

Relieved Venus won through in the end. The last time I saw Beygelzimer play was when she pushed Capriati 6-2 4-6 6-4 in the 1st round of the French Open 2004 and was 3-0 up in the final set...

Re: The outburst of Hingis...

Unfortunately outside the grand slams yes. It's really cheapened the event along with the champion's tiebreak.

Re: How far will Hingis go at Tianjin?

She trains as a pro athlete so will not be anywhere close to exhausted from playing 3-4 no ad two set doubles matches.

Those stats you produce suggest Caroline but the slam results and prize money indicate Vika had a better year, she played Serena and Maria a combined five times (I think) which didn't help.

Re: Will Venus Williams ever win a singles title at a Major again?

I definitely think the way she can play is still good enough to grab a slam title in this field. It's dependent on draw, scheduling and her health of course so nothing is a given. She was very...

Re: Should A WTA Employee (COURTNEY) Be Allowed To Tweet THIS?

She can think what she wants but it's unprofessional and childish for sure if not overtly negative. You can't put work related shade out there publically and WTA is no different. If I wrote...

Re: Quebec F: Beck def. Ostapenko 6-2, 6-2

Great week for Beck, seems like a nice girl. The Beck v Lucic-Baroni match was the real final here. Good week for Ostapenko though she is extremely ungracious when she loses. Needs to grow up a bit....

Quebec City QF : Naomi Broady (LL) d. Anna Tatishvili 3-6 7-5 6-3

First WTA semi for Naomi, good effort. This was a battle between two players who received plenty of good fortune at this tournament. Anna's racket throwing and high pitched complaining was a tad...

Re: Quebec R16: Krejcikova/Mestach d. Hradecka/Lucic 75 63

Think Hlavackova just wanted to play singles and Lucie and Miki decided to try and defend their title from her last year. This was probably their weakest performance together.

Re: The Players Twitter Chatting Thread - Part II

Hlavackova is entitled to her opinion but I've seen three matches where she refused a handshake with an opponent (ok, so Rodionova was two of them lol) but if I've seen three there must surely be...

Re: Will Serena be determined to win Gloden Slam in 2016?

If she's motivated and puts the work in (which is hard to do after her length on the tour) then it's a possibility with someone so great, but unlikely. Illness, injury, mental lethargy can never be...

Re: USO Final: [26] Flavia PENNETTA def Roberta VINCI 7-6(4), 6-2

Bit frustrating to see this version of Vinci turn up but really nice for Pennetta to win. Flavia's record here and previous more consistent singles career see her as the more deserving of these two...

Re: USO QF : [2] Halep "real n2" Simona denies [20] Viktoria "guest" Azarenka 63 46 6

Enjoyable match with many quality rallies. Was a little surprised Halep came through to be honest, thought once it hit the third set Vika would be all over it. Vika's movement wasn't the sharpest...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 88

The total lack of atmosphere in these day matches in such a large stadium (unless the Williams sisters are playing) is making this big matches a tad uninspiring.

Re: U.S. Open QF: Vinci reaches first career Slam SF, def. Mladenovic 6-3 5-7 6-4

Nice for Vinci to make her first slam singles semi, but a rather dreadful performance from Mladenovic. Final set her intensity was that of a random first round tour match, not a slam quarter final,...

Both upped their levels today, and the Venus of the last two rounds can give Serena a serious challenge. Mentally I don't know what she'll be feeling going into the match, but she's 35, playing good...
