    ^ I agree. When tournaments (or, more accurately, the ATP and/or WTA and/or tennis federations of a given country) screw up on a court surface, it makes one wonder how this can possibly occur. It's not like the recipe for different speeds of court, etc. is a secret. Mind boggling.

    I really think the world of her. She's always talking about "us" about her team or country. I'm happy that she's the year end #1.
    ^ Well said.
    She seems to be the genuine article.
    * Yes, it's me (last seen on TW boards in 2009).

    That Bencic retirement -- drama queen par excellence. If she was having all those problems physically she should have withdrawn before she started. Medical timeouts? They were somehow timed so as to have the worst effect on her opponent's focus and momentum. Pure gamesmanship, from my perspective. With the possible exception of the hamstring, those timeouts should/could have waited till her serve. Just my opinion.

    KaPlis, in complementing Barty, threw shade at Andreescu for using MTO's as a strategy in all of her matches.
    Bencic usually throws a tantrum or two on the sideline with her father looking on so I'm not happy to hear she's adopted the Andreescu approach to her tennis.
    There is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life.
