    Welp, not surprising but Isner just used the term "coronabros" on Twitter. Why does it feel like this pandemic is turning tennis into pro wrestling with "faces" and "heels". I hope the first live...

    Poll: Re: Great strokes. FIRST SERVE, WTA

    Navratilova for me. I just remember how easy it made Wimbledon for her at times. So many "free" points on the serve-and-volley.

    I sure hope so. The word "mandatory" is just a huge lawsuit waiting to happen if anyone gets sick.

    Rothenberg thinks AO won't proceed because the country has worked hard to get rid of covid and they won't risk it for a tournament. But I think it's fairly easy to manage this one, no? If the country...

    I'm not usually one to laugh at others' ill health but I kind of wouldn't feel bad if Novak had a minor complication from this that maybe set him back for a year or so. Nothing major, but like,...

    Honestly I won't trust Novak when he inevitably announces his negative test results. He's gone into isolation and if he has it he'll get privately treated at home and never reveal it.

    Noah Rubin's latest podcast apparently rips into Novak pretty bluntly, regarding USO and related activities: https://www.behindtheracquet.com/podcast

    It will be interesting to see how the list compares to those who skipped Rio over Zika, which seemed overly cautious and I remember thinking maybe some of those players just didn't want to go.

    That makes sense for the NFL, they have a pretty short season (and maybe get a few days off after each game?) It seems odd for the NBA though (and NHL, MLB) where you'd be away from your primary home...
