    Re: ATP 500 St Petersburg 10/12-10/18/20

    Deja vu! After a dominating first set, a Canadian breaks himself early in the second.

    Raonic needed to hit the ball only five times (ace, ace, ace, midcourt winner on his first groundstroke) to...

    Re: ATP 500 St Petersburg 10/12-10/18/20

    Shapovalov was serving at 1-2, 40-0 early in the second set, then hit four (non-consecutive) double faults to get broken. Rublev was in control the rest of the way.

    Sticky: Re: Tennis Random, Random 2.0

    Just realized that Felix is playing in Koln, which is a hard-court tournament, rather than Sardinia, which is on clay. Surprising, since he's just been playing on clay, and that's his best surface....
  6. Poll: Re: Are Rafa's 13 RG's the greatest record ever?

    I think the Golden Slam is less impressive than Rafa's 13 French's, or than Steffi winning each major at least four times. I mean, the Golden Slam is still quite an achievement, but it's just one...

    Sticky: Re: Talk about Rankings (TAR :))

    1. Swiatek could be the lowest ranked slam winner in a long time. I'm not talking about the player's ranking before winning the major, but AFTER. Swiatek only moves up to 17 on the new rankings. ...

    I was really hoping it would be warm enough for Swiatek to be able to ditch the extra layers. I've been really disliking all that white. Of course, the one match where she wore black tights it...

    Loving this. Ferro is so no-nonsense when she plays. She gets the ball to serve, heads right to the line. No excessive displays of emotion, negative or positive. Both diametrically opposite to...

    Pleasant surprise. I went bicycling this morning and was afraid I'd have missed the Kenin-Ferro match by the time I returned.

    I think I quite like Ferro, although I know nothing about her. When...

    The TV networks always find some, and have them watch the debates together so that they can get their reactions (and preferences) afterwards.

    I just commented how (medically) irresponsible this was in the COVID thread.

    But image/campaign-wise, this is also a disaster. Did any of his campaign staff approve of this? (They were probably...

    And a second favourite goes down in a big upset. Bertens loses 64 64 to Italian qualifier Martina Trevisan, who is remarkably loud, both during and between points.

    As expected, Swiatek too good for Bouchard, winning 63 62. Oddly, both sets followed the same pattern: Swiatek goes up 2-0, Bouchard levels it at 2-2, then Swiatek runs away with it.

    And so much...
