Nevermind, posting that seemed to help. Did Sloane and Konta play yet? I assume we play the winner tomorrow (Thurs)?

Re: Veesus Christ Chat Thread Vol # 6 - Make American Tennis Great Again | TrumpNus 2

Yeah you just seemed to save it for me. It wouldn't load anything until you posted that.
It's rainy as hell today... they keep delaying the start time in Rome by an hour but my TV shows footage of the premises and it's not easing up. They've so far delayed it for 6 and a half hours.... not good.

So with Joan and Kunta still to play, i'm guessing they might be delayed even until tomorrow if it doesn't clear up. Which means Vee gets another day off i'm guessing, but if she goes deep (highly unlikely) it will be a lot of consecutive matches. I'm betting she wishes she withdrew first.

There's rumour in GM that since the forecast is the same for tomorrow, the matches may be played at a nearby indoor clay venue (possibly just todays and tomorrows). Again that's only a rumour, and will be a bit of a PR disaster given all the controversy about raising the ticket prices for the Federer match today. People will be asking for refunds!

BUT if for whatever reason that does happen and Vee has to play on indoor clay? I think that will help her against either girl. She hasn't played indoors since the YEC 2017, but she usually slays and is very accurate when the wind isn't messing with her groundstrokes.

Vee will get to feast on the carcass of Sloane or Konta as they’ll surely have to play two matches tomorrow now

It will be an even playing field as Venus always plays with a handicap. 😛

Damn, the session has been almost completely washed out. Only four matches remain!

Re: Veesus Christ Chat Thread Vol # 6 - Make American Tennis Great Again | TrumpNus 2

Are the organisers really refusing refunds? For people who been there for 8 hours skulking around in the rain?According to the Telegraph they are... Mess.

Vee playing the other girls after they've already played a match that day will help even the scales since Venus has one leg, no serve, and can't actually move or turn to the left right now. Honestly Sloane needs the match fitness anyway.

Really though, with RG around the corner i'm thinking we'll see a lot of tanks when matchplay resumes. Nobody wants to kill their body before a slam. I wonder who is going to feast on the scraps of this tournament.....

More than double Wednesday ticket prices from €60 to €132 because Federer is playing then refuse refunds when there is no play.
Ouch!

Oop! It does a little. Wasn't there a thread in GM ages ago about her following a bunch of gay porn stars on twitter?


Sorry I have neglected thread duties y'all. RL issues are going on atm.

Vee’s a little unlucky she didn’t get the disinterested Sloane to smack off the court but she should still be able to handle Konta later

Yeah when I saw Sloane's level for a few games (plus with her diminished fitness), I was thinking there's no way she wins both matches today.

Konta is fitter right now and actually has decent momentum on the surface so it won't be 'easy peasy' but even with Vee's form we're pretty lucky to play her when she's already had a long 3 set match today.

Vee will face her on Court Centrale as soon as Federer/Sousa finish (Roger currently serving for the first set), and then Djokovic/Shapovalov have to play.
