The first point I see is a JoLa doublefault
I think we know who to blame here.I start watching, Johanna gets broken.
It really is a symptom of being addicted to this site that I hardly follow men's doubles. :lol:You can root for Freddie Nielsen to make his second Wimbledon final in men's doubles.
I only started paying attention after the first women's SF.It really is a symptom of being addicted to this site that I hardly follow men's doubles. :lol:
I used to follow it more, but spending time here (and the way the media follows singles for both men and women) just makes it easier to follow WTA and ATP singles, and WTA doubles.
That, and more of my favorite women players play doubles. (Especially JoLa.)
Losing the first set like that was tough, but yeah the second was very competitive up to that point. Yet they had a chance to make it 4-4, but Vika/Murray seem to rise their level when necessary. I was watching their third vs Farah/Groenefeld and thought that one was already over at 1-5 and missed the rest.Didn't see the first set, but to me it felt like Vika/Murray switched to another level at 3-3 in the second. After that it didn't seem close.
I think it Jo's duty to go and defend Kiki's singles titles for her. The Gstaad trophy looks pretty cool, so I she gets it.I'm wondering if she'll play at all. I could see her ditch one or both.
I think you mean scARRRRRRves? And thanks.Good... luck!?
Afterwards you can celebrate by drinking rum and speaking like a pirate. And wear some scarves for effect.
The rest of this report is behind a paywall, it would be interesting to see if they discussed the important stuff: who would be the new main sponsor, and where would they get a new license, since they sold theirs to Moscow?Google Translate said:The women's tournament on their way back to Båstad
There will be no women's week in Båstad this year. But hope is that WTA tennis will be played at the centercourse again.
"At best we will have a competition here next year," says Christer Hult, Event Director.
I think it's just wishful thinking at this point. The Båstad tournament was basically struggling to stay afloat for the entirety of its existence, and it sounds highly unlikely they've suddenly discovered the magic fix for it. And the location was really the root of all the problems, so I'm even more sceptical of a revival in the same location.
