    With Thiem pulling out next week, he has no chance at the #4 seed at Wimbledon. Anderson has a significant lead. Zverev and Tsitsipas both have a chance, but only with a title.

    She's #12 in doubles, so it's more like she's going back to being a doubles specialist. I figure she can easily do that for several years, if she wants to.

    Surely, you jest! The men must be at something like 22, and the women must be in the low thousands! My world is upside down!

    Someone mentioned Kevin Anderson returning to the tour soon, and I wondered if the Wimbledon seeding formula might move him all the way from #8 up to #4. It turns out there's a website that...

    Sabalenka is completely lost at sea. When she was winning a ton last year, Tursunov gave an interview saying he thinks she could change the game. I think he was spinning tales of double digit...

    He's definitely made his surge on clay, and I doubt he has much experience on grass. I just think his game will translate to grass okay. Also, regardless of court preference, I'll never be...

    The guy he played is actually ranked higher than him, and newly into the top 30. Tall, big hitting young guy.

    Davenport and Clijsters both held singles and doubles #1 at the same time. It's been mentioned a lot by commentators. Serena would be the most recent. I'm not sure if there was anyone in between. ...

    I'd say the race for year end #1 is between the top 3 of Barty, Kvitova, Pliskova, and whoever wins Wimbledon.

    Obviously, Osaka can't be counted out. I just think it might be a bit of a relief if...

    A few years ago there was a graphic showing the WTA had the lowest points for a #1 ever, but the highest points for a #8 ever. I don't think that's changed much in the last few years, and I don't...

    I wonder if the people who insist that Novak only has fewer fans because he's Serbian are watching this match. Maybe there are a few epiphanies happening.

    Lol. I think Van Uytvanck is going too far. She made one randomish QF and never made the top 30.

    Bencic or Bouchard would probably be the more apt cautionary tale.

    Here's what I gathered from all the information floating around:

    The men's semis were always going to be sold as 2 separate tickets, and the women's semis as 1. That's where the sexism comes in. ...
