    Italian tennis Federation says Rome is hoping to reschedule the 2020 tournament before Roland Garros in September. They are open to consider a different venue and a different surface

    If RG actually happens in September, they'll need at least one clay warm-up, right?

    At this rate I think September is going to need more than 30 days.

    If it's locked in at these rankings, Murray and Stosur get the slam winner wildcards.

    Re: Covid19 & Tennis

    Canada just announced they will not be sending athletes if the Olympics go forward as planned. I don't there's any way it takes place in 2020.

    Re: Covid19 & Tennis

    Yeah, in addition to Coronavirus, which the situation probably won't improve enough this year for the Olympics to happen, something else to think about is that if you postpone the Olympics by even a month, you're well into typhoon season in Japan. I went there last November, a month after Hagibis hit, and there were still some things (like train lines) that weren't operating full strength. And after typhoon season it's too cold for the Summer Olympics.

    Seems important.

    Pres. Trump fact-checked after press briefing by top doctor Zeke Emanuel:

    Coronavirus cases will keep rising because today's numbers are literally *two weeks* old

    I got "Indoor Yoga with Garin for 100 hours."

    I'm pretty sure someone of a different persuasion would enjoy that much more than me.

    Re: Covid19 & Tennis

    I got "Arguing with Nadal for 68 hours." I'd prefer a different activity, but I'll take anything with Rafa.

    Vlogging with Bublik for 73 hours? Maybe I better get serious about learning Russian...

    Playing FIFA (soccer video games are boring) with de Minaur for zero hours.

    My cell phone died yesterday, and it will be a week or two before I can get a new one because all the local stores are closed.

    What?!? So sorry. Do you have an old one to use in the meantime? Here at least the process to switch it to an old phone and back to your regular one can be done online or over the phone with your provider in a matter of minutes.
