    Re: Best Matches of Tennis Community Contest

    Yay! I'd say the sustained quality of that match and the sheer determination from both players was unsurpassed until that ridiculous 2005 Wimbledon final with Venus and Lindsay.

    Re: Best Matches of Tennis Community Contest

    My two favorite matches:

    Venus v. Davenport Wimbledon 2005 F
    Federer v. Safin AO 2005 SF

    I often find myself going back and rewatching highlights from:
    Nadal v. Federer 2008 Wimbledon F...

    I just wanna say this thread is an amazing wellspring of information and a great time capsule.

    Thanks to Ti-Amie for setting it up and populating it. And to everyone in here for the discussion.

    Washington state essentially just shut down restaurants and bars except for drive thru and delivery. Itís pretty scary. The last time I felt this level of sustained dread was, well, the day after the...

    Re: BNP Paribas Open(IW) 3/9-3/22 2020

    An overabundance of caution perhaps and profoundly disappointing for all Tennis fans but I canít argue with the decision. Trying to curtail a pandemic takes precedence

    Not sure if JT or anyone in the PNW has already posted somewhere about this, but in the Seattle-area, there is this noticeable low-level panic about this. Grocery stores are getting cleaned out of...

    Re: WTA Int'l ATP M500 Acapulco 2/24-2/29 2020

    The commentators last night mentioned that Tiafoe has now lost something like 12 straight deciding sets in matches. The guy is not clutch.

    Wawrinka also had a career high in aces (35, I think) but...

    They definitely heard. They reacted. It produced something way better than average. Maybe they’ll learn a lesson from that. The nominees are very different issue. I am sensing a trend though....

    Best Oscars ever :D

    On Friday, Serena declined to hit the balls she signed into the crowd after the match, because of an issue with her shoulder or arm. I was really surprised she took the court yesterday but not...

    Does Kenin remind anyone else a little of Capriati (on court, not off)? Her very specific balance of power, placement, grinding, and defense (especially her ability to get out of a baseline corner)...

    Re: '20 AO Day 12 OoP & Discussion

    It was a really fun match. The ESPN commentators have been really grating for me this tournament, so I'm not surprised that I disagree with them. The Zverev serve was absurd. At one point he made, I...

    Rafa has been having way too much trouble closing sets from up a break the last couple years. Way, way too much trouble. He should have won in straight sets.

    So Zverev finally figured out the formula. I'm surprised and impressed! He looked so lost so recently.

    The Irishman was kind of a disappointment. It's not the length. It's not boring in the least. It's a very well-made film. It just doesn't pass the "why do I care?" test. The emotional stakes are...
