    The Ascent To The Throne Begins For Felix Auger Aliassime

    I'm sure that's his priority, but I wouldn't be surprised if it still took some time before we see a significant difference. His struggles on serve probably cost him an earlier entry into the top 100, as well. I'm not going to hold my breath for 6 months to a year. If it clicks sooner, that will...

    The Ascent To The Throne Begins For Felix Auger Aliassime

    I'm a bit confused. He was doing some sort of clinic with 5 to 10 years old children, then played a bit with some other people to raise money for the academy now owned by his father to develop young players. This was a one day even that had been planned for a long time. I suppose he might have...

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    I'm definetely not doing taxes for anyone else, don't worry. Looks like there were agreements or something I didn't know of and it was more complicated than what was reported in news article I had read here that had dealt with the subject, so thanks for the correction, but I was mainly trying to...

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    I think you are confusing her fitness trainer Virginie Tremblay, who did assume coaching duties but only in Aukland since her actual coach was unable to make the trip. Edit: but since you wonder, she played tennis as a junior, though maybe not at an international level. She consulted regularly...

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    No, because it was not earned in Canada. The Canadian player gets to keep everything that's left after the U.S. taxes were paid for. In other words, the money only gets taxed once, in the original country it was earned, and not in the country the player resides in. The reason why players often...

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    I'm not sure about agreements, but I have to assume that all governments have guidelines for pro athletes winning prize money in their country, and how tournaments manage the money, pretty much like any employer would. All players at the US Open, regardless of their nationality, have to pay...

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    The U.S. tournament can't. The U.S. government does. The Canadian government does it with the prize money at the Rogers Cup, just like the French government does at the French Open. Google it for yourself if you don't believe me.

    Bianca Andreescu: under the radar but not for long!

    Not anymore, I would say it's very much the present.

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    That would impact the money she makes from sponsorship, not her prize money Badabing888 mentioned. Everyone pays taxes according to the country hosting the tournament.

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    Virginie Tremblay, I assume - saw her but don't recall her earrings. She's Bianca's fitness trainer.

    Bianca Andreescu: under the radar but not for long!

    I had no real pre-tournament pick, but I also I thought her chances were as good as anyone else's. I hope she can grab a GS title while she's healthy, so no matter what the future holds, she'll have one to her name.

    The Ascent To The Throne Begins For Felix Auger Aliassime

    Yes, I understand what you are saying. I don't think your point and the point I was making are mutually exclusive. :) It's just that it doesn't make the topics interchangeable, but from what I read you see that as well. ;) Some random comments belong to a specific thread. Others with more...

    The Ascent To The Throne Begins For Felix Auger Aliassime

    No worries. ;) The forum seems to have been upgraded anyway so I don't think the threads could become as confusing to me as they used to. That should work well enough for me.

    I Stand By Bouchard: Leader of the Genie Army, Ready to Rise and Conquer the World!

    I said "... WCs that don't translate into main draw wins won't help a player at all", not "...WCs don't help at all". As for the 1 point and $8,000, I was taking for granted that we were referring to a player like Bouchard. 1 point and $8,000 doesn't make any difference for her at this point...
