Why is Frances so terrible at doubles?
Tiafoe won ONE set this week...and managed to drag down all of the Mixed ties. I REALLY don't get how he's 39 in the world. I mean y'all the guy lost 76 61 to a player ranked 90....
TIAFOE change career. P.S. he ended USA's HC bid on a DF ... and laughed. Serena was over it.
In a way this is a good thing. Serena will get more time to rest and prepare for Melbourne. I think Hopman Cup was great practice for her. She won all her singles matches and got through the tough stretches, which will definitely help her in Melbourne. If anything, I think she's in a better place than she was last year. I would love to see her do what she did in NY, and focus hard on finishing points at net. I think it will do wonders for her.
If anything, this exposed the joke that is US Men's Tennis, especially Tiafoe. It exposed the obvious problems with a lot of young American players. Serena carried this whole event single handedly. I'm looking forward to big things in Melbourne.
And even though it's been said that her arm is sore, and even though Big FOE was a bust as her partner, Ree managed to get enough play out of the tournament virtually in tact physically, with not a lot of activity on the court this off-season, and coming into 2019 in decent shape--much better shape than she was coming into 2018's season. Same for Vee. Ree will assess what she has to work on and of course work on those things and in 2 weeks, she'll be heading to Melbourne to try to DO that damn thang with her nuclear family--Alexis Sr. Alexis Jr and Jr's daughter and Ree's grandbaby Qai Qai--in the stands :drive:This was all good for the queen. At the end of the day she won all her matches. There was some really good play and some not so great play. But she hasn't played a match since the tragedy last September so thats to be expected. Her instincts are still there and her desire (even at a damn EXHO) was very evident and makes me happy. This woman wants to win and wont give up til she does. Excited for Melbourne. Over the next 2 weeks hopes she keeps practicing non stop.
Okay, I think it just worked out perfectly but they named “Olympia” Alexis Ohanian, and Olympia is her middle name. So her initials are AO. I mean, I’m sure it was a cute little nod to the fact that Olympia was in her mommas belly when she won Grand Slam #23 in Australia but it also worked out perfectly since her last name was going to be Ohanian and her father wanted her to be a Jr.
Are you sure? No shade here, just genuinely interested in the connection between Australia and the name Olympia. I always connected Olympia with ancient Greece :lol:
