    Thanks to @MyUTR the first major live sporting event to air nationally in the U.S. will begin May 8.



    Ugh, Sandgren, no thanks.

    My thoughts exactly. I'm not that desperate, I'll wait for the women.

    I think intra Schengen travel will be possible in 1-2 months. If so will be possible to organize high profile exhos. Federer vs Nadal perhaps again?

    I don't expect any ranking tournaments till the end of September at the earliest.

    ^ No, I'm not on tennis twitter... not on curling twitter, either.
    Not on any twitter at all, for that matter.

    Just kidding, of course - about the 3 cents, I mean. I am serious in saying if you want to post anything I wrote as commentary on the article, go ahead. I just wouldn't be able to reply to any responses my commentary might solicit.

    You could also always invite the author of the article - and/or James Beres - to come into this thread to discuss the subject with us here.
    * Yes, it's me (last seen on TW boards in 2009).

    Nope, not on Twitter. I have a hard time trying to post anything meaningful here at TAT. Trying to write anything of value in 140 characters would be hopeless.

    There will be a series of tournaments in June and July in Czech Republic between "Team Kvitova" and *Team Pliskova". It's a high class stuff with so many pros there. I wish it was on TV elswhere as well.

    Petra will play with Strycova, Siniakova, Krejicikova, Alexandrova and Fruhvirtova. Karolina will partner with her sister as well as Muchova, Vondrousova, Martincova and Bartunkova. Seems like only Marie Bouzkova among top Czech players is not taking part (she lives in Florida).

    Per official ATP figures (2017) ATP masters on average make only 22% of their income through TV deals, 16% for 500's and 13% for 250's. So basically there is no business without spectators. Tournaments might do it once, but more than that is impossible. I imagine WTA numbers are even weaker.

    For Slams the situations is better, but also not rosy. For USO last year 42% from ticket sales and corporate hospitality.

    For those who can read in spanish, an article focused on mama Djokovic:

    There are some cringeworthy things in there. I came out feeling sorry for the younger brothers.

    I will give her a little benefit of doubt because of the translation, but: if she wanted to win Novak some points, she has failed miserably.

    Sure. But that is where the translation might come into place. CHOSEN by God may have been BLESSED by God but from Serbian to some intermediate language to Spanish, maybe something got lost.
