    world number 2 Halep said she won't play US Open

    Serena better win if the field is weakened then. This would even the score a bit versus Court's 11 Aussie Opens against less than full fields. The French should proceed as well. Serena could win both break the record and get back to having a second child if that is their plan.

    Evert - underrated power?

    Super Tall Servers Are Ruining Tennis

    How about only one ace per game and then u must hit second serves. Must be a real ace and not allow a cheater to allow the first ball by him and then face second serves the rest of game. Return to Jack Kramer rackets. Oh the joy of actual a variety of tennis again.

    Worst match you've ever seen

    Helena Sukova d. Lori McNeill in Princeton 6-0, 6-3. Lori won 6 points in the first set. Even if I had played Helena I would have won 0 points but I was not a professional athlete.

    Why does everybody love Del Potro?

    yes secular leftist regimes are so rationale and citizen friendly at all times. No acts of dictatorship exist in secularism. All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.
