When does Nadal, Serena Nike contracts expire?
"The contract, the private contract that I have, are private, private for me, and I'm not going to share them and I'm not going to tell you when I'm finishing one contract or another one. It's something that is between myself and Nike and that's the end of it, period", said Nadal.

She's basically Ostapenko with a better serve and better natural athleticism and better attitude and her time will come.
Which players is she blowing off the court? She literally has one win against a top 10 player - Pliskova, who couldn’t give a toss about the Asian Swing. Any good mover is wiping the floor with her basic, one dimensional game because she lacks shot tolerance.

Do you actually watch Dayana play to make such a stupid statement?

Her success on multiple surfaces is a testament to that fact.
Indeed Yastremska hits harder, I think that should be pretty obvious, but Anisimova is a better shotmaker and imo the more talented, with a better court sense, though she looks physically frail. DY otoh is probably the player that generates power more effortlessly, but I am a bit doubtful about how she will develop. I know she's had a good year, but I feel like it was also a bit of a letdown. Almost no wins against top players and still not one deep GS/PM run, a la Kvitova in Wimbledon 2010, when she made the SF, and which I think some people were expecting from her. She's giving me some Keys vibes when she started to break through. Everyone was expecting her to learn to control her power, blah blah, but she still hasn't and probably never will. Just 4-5 matches every season when she looks unbeatable and then baseball bashing sprees galore. I am still not sure if Yastremska is going to develop that instinct to construct points, improve her defence, find a good average level when she's not peaking, so she will be indeed competing with Osaka and Vanessa for slams, or if she's going to follow Keys path and become a Giorgi redux, the about to happen that never really happens to happen I am like 50/50 and I've cooled down a bit despite she still having an overall good season.

Amanda probably hits harder, but is too one-note at the moment. I suspect she may slump at the beginning of 2020 due to the pressure of living up to the contract and still getting over the horrible tragedy she suffered, which is totally understandable.

Re: Amanda Anisimova signs enormous Nike deal

It's funny how people who never interacted with me before now all of a sudden are quoting me just to reprise the drama from last weekend. I suspect it's because of who is being talked about and I don't care to go through that again.

Ignore is a wonderful feature.
