    Lahyani Supended

    I never used to be suspicious of tennis, but all the things that happened at the US Open lead me to think otherwise. I find it so hard to believe that Stan W. and Dimitrov faced each other in the first round at 2 consecutives tournaments. I am angry that the USTA gave Serena a night match for...

    Tiafoe to Replace JMDP in Laver Cup

    I agree with you. It seems mean, but events like this are not increasing the visibility of tennis. I would like players like Djoker and Roger and Rafa that have earned approx. $100 million to do something to increase the visibility of the sport. They should be giving back to the sport that...

    Tiafoe to Replace JMDP in Laver Cup

    This exhibition is a joke. I am still a Fed fan but I have lost a lot of respect for this money grab. Plus, Tiafoe dropped out of a real tournament next week in Asia so that he could play. Shouldn't he receive a fine? What was his excuse? I have to go to Chicago to get a bigger payday than I...

    Lahyani Supended

    very glad to read about this. The statement that the USTA put out after the incident was ridiculous. The USTA just wanted Nick to play Fed next round. Hope he sticks to calling the score and related duties going forward.

    The Serena Charade...

    I like Kevin a lot. He seems like a genuine person. However, he is starting to act like Djoko and a politician that is in a race. He LIKES all causes and all people. I got tired of Djoker's numerous comments on how wonderful Serena is because she had a baby and is trying to come back as a...

    2018 Davis Cup - General Discussion

    He was playing Haase much as Haase played him in the Rogers Cup and tonight. Haase was thrown off by the loopy soft shots and his serve Percentage finally fell off too. 78% 1st set; 75% 2nd set 65% 3rd set. Both guys looked punchdrunk at the end. felt sorry for Robin, but he beat Denis...

    The Shape Of Things To Come: Denis Shapovalov!

    thanks for the gossip re: new Canadian Davis Cup captain. I didn't read anything except Marty said he was too busy with Denis and they named Frank. I am not sure of when Nestor announced his retirement, but he sure has had a tough year. He seems to have a new partner every tournament and...

    The Shape Of Things To Come: Denis Shapovalov!

    Hey Canadian Shapo fans: I will likely be unable to catch the Davis Cup matches this weekend, but I have a favor to ask. Could any viewers let me know if they see Mr. Laurendeau in the audience? I am curious to see if he makes it. thanks so much. Merci beaucoup.

    Umpires considering boycott of Serena's matches

    I am so mad at Serena for highjacking the match. However, it's been a few days and the most annoying thing without a doubt are all of these people that know absolutely NOTHING about tennis that continue to say the most ridiculous things about the match. Fools saying that Shapo threw his raquet...

    Serena Williams

    if you have internet, you can watch a replay on ESPN3 or watch ESPN. it was a real trainwreck. The press is not reporting the whole truth and worse, my local TV channels don't even mention the winner's name: Osaka! I am really done with Serena.

    2018 USO Womens Final : ThisMama Serena Williams vs Japanese Queen Naomi Osaka

    I am glad someone else heard that. In her rage, she accused Osaka of stealing a point from her. What a loser? how can sweet Naomi still consider her a role model?
