    Sticky: Re: Tennis Random, Random 2.0

    I was covering the tournament for Tennis Buzz. I didn't do these scorecards -- they were provided to media.

    Sticky: Re: Tennis Random, Random 2.0

    I'm decluttering my studio room, and just came across a pile of scorecards from 2014 Cincy. The biggest upset when I was there (the early rounds) was Svitolina d. Kvitova (the tournament ended up...

    There's more "way" than there used to be -- Roger's slowing down and not 100% either. But it's probably gonna be Nole, so yeah.
  6. Re: Number of Career Slams for WTA Slam Winners This Year

    I somehow thought Barty was way older than she is. She seems sensible and determined. If I were putting money on this today, I'd say 4 each for her, Osaka, and Halep, and 1 for Andreescu. But I would...

    Whereas I hear "LL" as ell-ell in my head as I'm reading along. Which is, since a case can be made for either option, what project- and client-specific style sheets are for. And Ngrams (AKA anecdotal...

    The draw PDF says the reason for the w/o was ab pain. While it would arguably be more fair for a qualifier who did play the last round to be selected as LL, I'm failing to feel scandalized by the...

    Re: Next Gen Players They're (Almost) Here

    Not saying this was why Hopman and Mac got along, but people do often make allowances for massive talent.

    On a somewhat related note, I find myself cutting Kyrgios the tiniest bit of slack because...

    Was it McEnroe who hated practicing and treated match play as such? Maybe that's the Med plan?

    Is Thiem considered Next Gen or Lost Gen at this point?

    As poorly as I'm doing, it could've been worse -- Kuznetsova was kind enough to bail in time for me to ditch Golubic.
