    Re: ATP 500 Hamburg 9/21-9/27 2020

    So the final will be Sunday and those guys might play Monday in Paris, or Tuesday at the latest? Yeesh. Even the losing semifinalists probably won't get to Paris until Sunday sometime. Play starts...
  2. Re: ATP WTA GS Roland Garros 9/27 - 10/11 2020

    Because the negatives could be wrong and they're being safe instead of sorry, as they should. How many negatives would cancel out a positive? I'd think the French Open would have to administer any...

    From Ben on Twitter:

    Fernando Verdasco says he is out of #RG20 after testing positive for coronavirus in their test, but that he has taken three tests on his own since then, all showing him...
  4. Re: '20 RG Mens Singles Draw & Discussion

    Miles said modern era. I took that to mean recent times/current era (Big 3), not Open era. That's the only reason. It's a bit of an odd stat anyway because first-time slam champs don't happen very...

    Sticky: Re: '20 Racquet Smashing Contest

    He struggled to make contact with the ground on three swipes! He really does suck on clay.
  7. Re: '20 RG Women's Singles Draw & Discussion

    Yeah, I watched it. I didn't think Kerber was bad at all. She competed very well. I just thought Brady was amazing and riding high on confidence, also had a lot more hardcourt matches coming into the...

    Re: RG Qualies 9/21 - 9/25 2020

    underhanded on match point? How appropriately named. I just am not sure if that's sportsmanlike. My immediately reaction is "gross."
  9. Re: Tennis Random, Random 2.0

    That seems way more likely. To go from 5,000 fans plus everyone credentialed to only 1,000 credentialed is an entirely different tournament.
  10. Re: '20 RG Mens Singles Draw & Discussion

    Hardly any man has won so much as a first Slam in the last 10-15 years. Only 5 men (Big 3, Murray and Stan) have won more than 1 since 2003. So the sample size is too tiny for men to be of much use....

    Re: RG Qualies 9/21 - 9/25 2020

    Zvonareva. Tauson is a 17-year-old with some hype. For men, maybe Jack Sock. And Andres Gomez's kid either already qualified or is in the last round of qualifying, 30 years after Gomez won the French...
  12. Re: '20 RG Mens Singles Draw & Discussion

    Sure, he might. To me, that assessment isn't much different than any prior year. I think the best we can say is that the gap between them looks a little narrower than in other years when Novak has...
  13. Re: '20 RG Mens Singles Draw & Discussion

    The surface is the equalizer here. It offsets a lot - maybe all - of the lack of reps/matches he likes. He will have five B5 matches before he plays Thiem. Might be enough. This will be a big story...
  14. Re: '20 RG Women's Singles Draw & Discussion

    Shot, sure. But of all the people she could have drawn, No. 9 seed and defending semifinalist is on the difficult end. I doubt her team saw that and sighed in relief. Coco might win but it would be...
  15. Re: Tennis Random, Random 2.0

    1,000 people barely covers all the credentialed tournament staff, operations folks, TV crews, and hospitality workers, before you even get to players and their teams. This is crazy. Ben suggested...
  16. Re: '20 RG Women's Singles Draw & Discussion

    ?? Not should. No one should, definitely no one unseeded. But some draws are tougher than others. Top 10 player and last year's semifinalist in R1 is a very tough draw. I've never said she's a star...

    Sounds like some type of feminine product. :)
  18. Re: '20 RG Mens Singles Draw & Discussion

    Murray-Stan R1! Then Stan on track for Thiem in R4. That's tough for both of them. Battle of the Beautiful Backhands.

    Shapo-Tsitsipas in R4 seems early, if they both get there.
  19. Re: '20 RG Mens Singles Draw & Discussion

    Thiem's wild card is whether he has lost motivation or has shed pressure. I bet it's the pressure and he's plenty motivated to win another one.
  20. Re: '20 RG Mens Singles Draw & Discussion

    I know, crazy. He didn't even play that poorly in Rome. He's definitely the favorite. Question is whether it's a heavy favorite. Wertheim has an interesting theory that Halep is more of a favorite...
  21. Re: '20 RG Women's Singles Draw & Discussion

    Gauff got a terrible draw. Top half definitely harder. Bottom half has a lot of opportunities. Kerber got a kind draw. No one's talking about her, but her loss to Brady at the USO wasn't a bad one....

    Re: Covid19 & Tennis

    That's what they think now, but there's no way to know for sure, or if Paire's antibodies triggered a false positive. Because of that, I support a strict approach if that's what a tournament chooses....
