  1. Re: ATP 250 Antwerp, Stockholm 10/14 - 10/20 2019

    Grammar musing:

    Should it be "a LL" or "an LL?" Do you follow the rule for the letters or the abbreviated words? Hmm...
  2. Re: ATP 250 Antwerp, Stockholm 10/14 - 10/20 2019

    Shapovalov finally wins his first semifinal. He was 0-7 and 0-14 in sets before this. If he had lost today, he would have had the Open Era record for most semifinals reached without reaching a...

    Hey, her speaking engagement during Shenzhen doesn't interfere with Zhuhai! She's never won the WTA Elite Trophy before, maybe she'll go to that! :hyst:
  4. Re: WTA P ATP 250 Moscow 10/14 - 10/20 2019

    If Bencic loses, things could get interesting. Serena would be #8 and Bertens #9. Serena has yet to officially pull out, but eagle eyed commenters on Twitter have pointed out that she's scheduled...

    You used to. I just pulled up the 2019 rulebook, and it looks like there's been a change. Now you don't get anything for losing in the first round of a 500 or below. You earn 10 points for losing...
  6. Re: WTA P ATP 250 Moscow 10/14 - 10/20 2019

    Bertens just lost her QF to Mladenovic, so she's frozen at #9 in the race. Bencic needs a RU to pass both her and Serena for the last YEC spot. If Bencic doesn't make the final, Serena has the last...

    I'm usually in that crowd. In this case, I don't think we have enough information. She just won a tournament where she had to play qualies. She could just be exhausted from tennis and travel. ...

    Is it posted this early so we have a place to talk about who will qualify? :)
  10. Re: WTA P ATP 250 Moscow 10/14 - 10/20 2019

    Ahh. I was thrown off because Bencic has to replace 55 points.
  11. Re: WTA P ATP 250 Moscow 10/14 - 10/20 2019

    It was sort of a shrug.
  12. Re: WTA P ATP 250 Moscow 10/14 - 10/20 2019

    I was just looking at the race standings, and I think these are the scenarios:

    Bertens and Bencic need a RU to pass Serena, so if they meet in the semis, the winner will make the YEC.

    If Bencic...

    There was a quote earlier that a possible punishment would be no more wildcards, but that she could still enter tournaments based on her ranking. That sounds like a steaming pile. It also makes her...

    Re: ATP M1000 Shanghai 10/6 - 10/13 2019

    Tiafoe has 11 losses to lower ranked players this year, with 4 of those opponents being outside the top 100. He's been super up and down since the Australian Open.

    Barty is pretty close to having the #1 ranking locked up.

    Because going 0-3 at the YEC still gives you 375 points, a lead higher than 1125 will make her uncatchable. She's currently ahead of...

    It's actually pretty rare for partners to never have a tournament or two with someone else. Looks like Mladenovic/Babos have 3 or 4 tournaments playing with other partners, usually due to not being...

    That same umpire earlier complained to a player about not finishing off the match already, saying something like "I'm old. This should have been over. I need to pee." among other things.

    Shapovalov lost. He's now 0-7 in semifinals, with all of those losses being in straight sets. I think that's too often to be a fluke. Might be a cause for concern.

    It happens when a 9 or 10 day tournament bumps into the earlier one. The 4 semifinalists are given a BYE into the following tournament. I believe now it only happens with Wuhan/Beijing, but it also...
