    USO - have they put out clear policies about players' exposure to Covid?

    I may have missed it since I've been a bit absent on this board, but I was wondering if the US Open has put forward clear policies as to what will happen if a player tests positive (even if a finalist or semi-finalist?) and if a player has been in close contact with someone who tests positive...

    Haven't been interested in anything tennis, but.... Vasek and Bethanie have it going on!

    Love their YouTube content. I've been in the doldrums, but these guys have some great content on their channel. Check it out! I watched episode 2 first and it was great: episode 1...they were just getting their mojo going:

    Pospisil pranks Sock

    Apparently Jack posted images on Instagram of his fiance and himself. Pospisil had 'control' of the ATP account at the time and pretended to give him a bit of a hard time on their behalf...looking for invitations to the wedding. And Bethany M-S was right in there behind the scenes. All is good...

    Has anyone else lost all interest in pro tennis for now?

    Just checking in. I know it's great to have other interests, but I just don't care about pro tennis with all that is going on. I think the social aspect of this forum is great, so I don't expect others to feel as I do. Social connection is very important right now. I'm still thinking about...

    Competitive tennis fans

    Completely off topic, so my title disguises it a bit, but I just wanted to wish everyone here a wonderful holiday season!! I love talking tennis with you. Everyone brings different perspectives. And, the fact that we can even have the time to focus on tennis, a luxury, is reason enough to show...

    Tipsy retires from ATP

    Janko played his last ATP tournament match today in Stockholm. If you get a chance to watch the end of the match and the ceremony afterwards, please do. It was an exciting match at the end and both players were emotional. I always get teary-eyed when people retire. (I should add that...

    Anyone else going to USO 2019?

    I'm thrilled to be going back (was there 2 years ago)! A Grandstand ticket or a grounds pass is a great value, although not nearly as good a value as 2 years ago. We're going on Day 1. So many matches to watch! (although just found out that none of the Canadians we wanted to watch -- Denis...

    If something happens to me....

    I have to admit that I posted things on Twitter, where I took offense to MBS of Saudi Arabia. If something happens to me, well, you can guess what happened. Beyond that, go ATP tennis!!

    Debate topic: FAA is the future tennis darling

    Opening statement: Federer has achieved 'God-like' status with fans, both casual and knowledgeable. Nadal, also has a massive following, who naturally find him irresistible. They both have indefinable qualities that draw in large fan bases, from far beyond the die-hard fans who focus on the game...

    Who would be a good coach for Shapo?

    I don't want to jinx things, BUT, Marty Laurendeau has been off for 4 months now with a back injury and 19 year old Denis is trying to find his way. His mother has been a wonderful coach, but he needs someone at this critical juncture to step in and help him deal with some of his "problems"...

    US Open battle of the prodigies: Shapovalov v Aliassime

    ATP Swiss Open in Gstaad - No one cares

    So no thread has been set up for this tourney. This late clay tournament has been completely ignored not only on TTW but also Tennis TV. Does anybody care? The Fog and Deliciano are lined up to face off in the top half. RBA, is trying a recent comeback, perhaps to face young Coric. What say...

    Why aren't there more Asian stars (male)?

    Nishi is great, but he has his injury problems and needs more cavalry in support. Hyeon Chung looks like a top talent in the making. I hope he continues to progress. Duckhee Lee, as much as I admire him, isn't going to be a star. Nishioka is solid, but he's not going to be a star. Can Yibing...

    Impact of gambling on lower level ITF matches

    Can Shapovalov stay grounded?

    To have fame thrust upon you so suddenly as a teenager must be difficult to handle. Will Denis be able to keep his head screwed on straight? He seems to have a great family influence and strong team around him. They've done a great job so far. I just hope his attitude stays true. -- Chris...
