    2020 US Open WTA Entry list out - Absent: #1 Barty, #5 Svitolina, #6 (defending champ) Andreescu, Wang & Ostapenko

    Go Serena Go. This might be a field like Margaret Court faced a few times in Australia where no one would make the trip for different reasons but not Serena's fault if no one shows up.

    Will Woz be in the HOF?

    She lacked a real kill shot and had to rely on 7 matches where the opponent made more errors. That happened just once.

    Why did Chang fall off a cliff after 1997?

    I couldn't care less what Andre Agassi claimed. He is the devil personified.

    Wimbledon releasing rare gems - Rosewall next?

    Its in pieces and doesn't have the conclusion if I recall. That's the most important part seeing Martina lose the match point.

    Hubris cometh before the fall

    Will the court play differently in September than in May and June.

    Wimbledon releasing rare gems - Rosewall next?

    Id like to see Margaret Court beat Martina in 1975 QF and Evert beat Martina in both 1976 and 1980, please. Hana beating her in 1981 would complete the set.

    Chris Evert(and the WTA) almost boycotted the '75 USO due to green clay

    Having watched the 1980 QF at Wimbledon it was pretty boring as there were no rallies between Martina and Billie Jean.

    Evert - Pretty Darn Good On Grass

    It was a brown hardcourt not clay.

    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?

    In her 1982(?) biography she wrote that her father said most points are lost and not won. I think I remember reading that there if not I apologize its been decades. This would explain why she did not just go all out for the point from stroke one. This enabled her opponent to miss first. Wade...

    Dan Evans: Djokovic concerns over US Open restrictions only valid for top players

    What a pampered group of jerks. Did Rod Laver have an entourage? Get over yourselves and get back to work.

    Evert - underrated power?

    Richards has experience playing both mens and womens tennis and knowing hard hitting.

    Evert - underrated power?

    Renee Richards played against Evert and coached against her. Dr. Richards was quoted in the rivalry bio that Chris did not play patty cake and she hit bombs. That's an expert opinion on the subject if there is one.

    What made Borg more popular than Lendl (and Sampras)?

    and the death of serve and volley even at Wimbledon.

    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.

    Who will win more slams?...Osaka or Andreescu?

    Andreescu is a better player from what I have seen but she is injured ALL THE TIME. I say Osaka.

    who is freaking petr korda , why this guy is grand slam champion ?

    He needed to date one of the many out of shape WTA and NCAA players in his day. When she ate he had to eat. That way he added bulk and hopefully muscle without doping.

    The Top 10 Best Season Ever Played

    Nice list. Just want to point out that 15 year-old Chris Evert straight stetted Court 7-6, 7-6 a couple weeks later in Sep 1970 on clay in SC. Later being winning the Grand Slam something neither Martina or Serena has done or Evert or King. Maybe Annacone, Davenport and Roddick should have...

    Greatest British player, combining men and women, of Open Era

    How did the Maleeva sisters play?

    Manuela also made 2 US semis. I pointed Katerina out because she was the lowest ranked of the 3 and she's exactly my age.

    How did the Maleeva sisters play?

    I loved the Maleevas. They were not riveting to watch always but they were known quantities and they lived up to the hype. Three sisters all the top ten wow.(Manuela #3, Katerina #6 and Magdalena #4) I especially credit Katerina since she managed to make the QFs at all 4 grand slams.AO 90, 91...

    Remember Monica Seles ?

    Seles was a great player and competitor. She was doing to Graf what Rafa has done to Fed. If that f&^^ psycho had not attacked her in 93 then the history of tennis would have been VERY VERY different. I did not like the shrieking but she unlike 99% of the wailers had the game to back it up.

    Sampras was able to hang with, and BEAT peak GOAT Federer in 2007. Premature retirement at age 30 after one bad season?

    This the issue that Serena is facing. Good enough to still factor in the majors but burned out and having no desire to play week in week out.
