    USO needs to be moved back a week

    it doesn't feel that there is alot of attention/coverage of the USO from the us sports media and i suspect its because of the start of college football and NFL which are the two most popular sports in the country. once again the ITF continues to show their incompetence in the promotion of the...

    Prediction: The 2021 US Open Will Be The Greatest Slam of All Time

    there are so many storylines in this one. the 20/20/20 angle alone is enough hype on its own merit as all members of the big 3 will be desperate to breakthrough. however, one must consider the possibility, given their ages, that this could be the last slam we ever see Roger Federer and Serena...

    Decent Chance for FAA vs Berrettini ?

    Parking Lot Open (aka miami open) Atmosphere ?

    for those who have attended, is it as soulless and depressing in person as it appears on screen? i can't imagine being accustomed to the beautiful, exclusive surroundings of Key Biscayne and then having to transition to 'the hood' in a football stadium parking lot surrounding by concrete and...

    Anyone Else Loving The Rising Emphasis on Drop Shots?

    drop shots always seem to make points more exciting as you're never quite sure if the player will get there, and if he/she does, what will happen next. this is great for the evolution of the sport as well as now there is more of an athletic component required with quick reflexes and foot speed...

    Apologizing for winning point when ball grazes net?

    totally unnecessary in my opinion. nobody purposely grazes the net to win a point. its a matter of bad luck/good luck, simple as that.
