    What happened to American tennis?

    I have said it before when this topic comes up, Patrick McEnroe pretty much going into his office and taking a nap during his days of Head of Player Development didn't help.

    Swiatek, Osaka and Kenin, Possibly, Will Form the WTA Triumverate For the Forseeable Future

    Right now Coco is hype/hope. Swiatek is a teenager who already has a slam.

    Swiatek, Osaka and Kenin, Possibly, Will Form the WTA Triumverate For the Forseeable Future

    Kind of agree on Kenin but I’d be intrigued to see what would happen if she made a split from the father.

    Swiatek, Osaka and Kenin, Possibly, Will Form the WTA Triumverate For the Forseeable Future

    Not sure I’d put Halep, Pliskova and Serena in the “future” category, they probably only have a few years left. Serena barely plays the regular tour. Other names to watch out for are Kostyuk and Rybakina.

    Patrick Mouratoglou the enigma

    I encourage you to take a look at the rosters , with or without Phil Jackson all those teams were stacked. :rolleyes:

    Enlighten us!! All of us "rec player/fans", hardly, are waiting.

    Patrick Mouratoglou the enigma

    He could be the equal to what Phil Jackson was when he was coaching those Bulls team with Jordan, Pippen, etc. Any of us "rec player/fans" ;) pretty much could have rolled the balls out there and they would have won. He pretty much had the Michael Jordan of women's tennis, hard to screw that up...

    Patrick Mouratoglou the enigma

    He came from money, I believe his father was the president of a huge energy company in France and bankrolled the academy.

    Naomi Osaka

    She should not be calling those matches because she doesn’t have the ability to be a professional during these matches. I forgot to add the most important thing, she brings absolutely NOTHING to the table as an analyst.

    Naomi Osaka

    Chris Evert calls every Serena match and it’s embarrassing. You essentially have the President of the Serena Williams Fan Club calling her matches. At the beginning of the Serena/Sabalenka match she said something to the effect that no player had come back from having a child and had the success...

    Serena leaves press conference in tears....

    Semantics aside, Potapova was a tough straight set match, those happen occasionally ;), "choking" Sabalenka took her deep into the third set, not beneficial to Serena a this stage of her career and she will be 40 in 6 months :rolleyes:. The point is the field is to deep at Majors for her to...

    Serena leaves press conference in tears....

    Tough match with Potapova in 3rd round, a war with Sabalenka in 4th round, these matches add up and at 40 really handicap her in the later rounds, . Where was the great fitness and movement last night, non existent against a player who hits a bigger more consistent ball. She hasn't won a set...

    Serena leaves press conference in tears....

    This is maddening !! It is said after every time she loses another Grand Slam match, it's not one player who takes out Serena it's the winning seven matches!!! The depth and draws in Grand Slams is getting tougher. I know that when you listen to ESPN or Tennis Channel they seem to think that...

    Is Serena on the path to becoming the greatest tennis player of all time?

    Osaka plays nothing like Halep. Serena is not going to be able to dictate as much. This match will be much tougher than the Sabalenka match, Osaka makes more balls and is a smarter player.

    Official Wilson Clash thread

    I am not sure where I said "Ezone 100 is soft for the arm". Sometimes its about the balance. Also, when you have players coming from the Pure Drive or Ultra the Ezone 100 is going to feel "softer".

    Official Wilson Clash thread

    At my club we have probably had a 60/40 split of players with arm issues purchasing either the Clash 100 or the 2020 Yonex Ezone 100. In both cases the players have been happy and no further issues.

    Chris Fowler as a commentator?

    Her calling of Serena matches is an absolute embarrassment. You essentially have the President of the Serena Fan Club calling her matches.

    what 's the reason people diss Taylor Fritz ?

    The US media has hyped Fritz for years, you are either ignoring or not paying attention. The comparison to Brady is because Brady has turned the corner and Fritz is still the same guy he’s been, despite taking Novak to five sets. He‘s the same guy who lost 2 and 4 to Chardy in the lead up...

    what 's the reason people diss Taylor Fritz ?

    Because he’s another American male player who has been overhyped. The skill set/results just don’t match the hype. I’ve said this before there needs to be a limit of how many years you can be “up and coming” :-D. I feel like guys like Fritz and Tiafoe have never made that next move, like say a...

    Women's AO Champ

    People love that ESPN/Tennis Channel hype machine !!! I think the players on tour kind of have a handle on what Coco's game is now and the results are showing.

    Any sponsorship changes for 2021 season?

    She went from Yonex to Head, a Speed 360+ MP. Now she’s back to a Pure Aero, which is ironic because I believe she is rehabbing an elbow injury.

    Andreescu: Superstar in progress

    Follow along, so Jimmy had the surgery in 90 and made the semis at the Open in 91, the Open in 91 wasn’t his first tournament back!! By your logic that would give Bianca until the 2022 AO to show that she can still play tennis !!

    Andreescu: Superstar in progress

    Yes, I watched the match from first point to last point!! The game is there, the reps aren't!! Did you think she was going to win the tourney?? Oh by the way, didn't her opponent play a pretty damn good match??

    Andreescu: Superstar in progress

    And you have determined that in the five sets she played in the AO?? The game is there, sames groundies, she just needs more matches and had an opponent that is a nightmare to play.

    About Venus and Serena in 2021.....

    Agree with almost everything, Venus for the better part of a couple of years has just been an opponent. She’s had a couple miracle runs but her aura is long gone. The women’s tour needs to focus on the players who truly support the tour and the growth of the tour. Do you think Serena cares a...

    Corentin Moutet is the future of tennis

    If he was an American he would be touted as the next big thing. But seriously, this guy can be top 50 !!

    Surprised why?? Yonex is a massive player on the WTA Tour.

    Better Serve: Serena or Schwartzman?

    Why are we talking about how Serena would do against Diego?? She gets smoked by the heavies on her own tour right now.
