    Dominic Thiem "didn't have the courage" to tell me we're no longer working together, I was loyal for 6 years: Fitness coach Alex Stober

    Well, I mean, he didn't keep his charge from getting hurt by a "freak injury." The results speak for themselves.

    Trying to classify the Laver Cup. What is it really?

    Halfway between exho and an ATP Cup type team event that I take more seriously.

    Chardy suspends his season following serious Covid vaccine adverse reaction

    The problem is, in the USA anyway, we're in collapse, and the media and government have a credibility crisis after the last four or so administrations. It's been going on longer than that, but it's really been ramped up to 11.

    Chardy suspends his season following serious Covid vaccine adverse reaction

    I won't point any fingers, at least not directly, but there used to be a segment of the population that was suspicious of Big Pharma and weirdly that has all evaporated.

    Where is Nadal?

    People always ask, "where is Nadal," but never ask, "how is Nadal."

    2021 ATP METZ - Moselle Open

    For starters, Rune's 72-26 in his last 52 weeks. That's across all professional levels of play, but he's doing well at the ATP Tour level, even.

    2021 ATP METZ - Moselle Open

    Shoot, Humbert must have gotten injured in that Murray match. He pulled out of Indian Wells.

    If Medvedev somehow finishes 2021 as #1, will it be the most ridiculous men's year end #1 ever ?

    Basically Medvedev is indeed playing the Moscow 250 later on this year.

    The Official Teenage Tennis Talent Thread

    Juncheng Shang likely is the first person born in 2005 to earn ATP points. Currently in the QFs (won two matches) of his first professional main draw (did lose a heartbreaker third set TB in the first qualifying round in Miami after getting a WC there). See if he can win his first professional...

    How is the tour sustainable at the moment?

    I imagine a lot of that is revenue generated from sponsorships and advertisement revenue.

    Just letting everyone know now...

    Zverev probably gained some valuable self-belief at the USO, but I don't get the "he's the biggest threat" meme. He's still 0-Career against the top 10. Gonna have to break that cherry before I believe he's a threat, let alone the biggest threat.

    aus open: who should host it if not Melbourne?

    Are there many places that can host 1000 tennis players and, at a minimum, 5 massive tournaments (men's singles, doubles, women's singles, doubles, mixed doubles, not even considering juniors and wheelchair) simultaneously?

    Casuals Will Be Talking Federer for the Next 25 Years

    I thought you meant they would be talking about Federer for the next 25 years. You meant casuals as a group, rather than as an individual.

    Murray's Current Level

    At his best, he can flash at or near top 10 level quality of play. He can't maintain that level, though, I think he's probably about the 50th best player on the ATP right now, give or take.

    Casuals Will Be Talking Federer for the Next 25 Years

    How do you square "casual" with "talking about Fed for the next 25 years?" That's not casual, that's fandom.

    Medvedev News 6.0

    So, can't say I understand the thinking, but Medvedev is in the Moscow 250 entry list the week after Indian Wells. He said post-USO, he wasn't playing Vienna/St Pete (one week later), so technically he didn't fib, but I got the impression he was only doing Laver, IW, Paris, and Turin to finish...
