    Well Isn't that Nice One Cant even discuss

    certain issues. Where did all the open minds go? If one must eliminate conversation and discussion me thinks the new conventional wisdom must not be so right.

    Patrick Mouratoglou

    Why would ESPN air the opinions of a known cheater? He admitted he was illegally coaching Serena last September and did I hear correctly that he was warned the other night during one of Tsitsipas' match?

    Dan Evans, simply telling it like it is

    https://sports.yahoo.com/british-tennis-civil-war-deepens-110358799.html And the prize money offered and the television hours allotted to doubles on TV back him up 100%.

    Fed Cup and American Women Abandoning the Cause

    I am disappointed that Capt Rinaldi can't get the better players to step up. I imagine that the Czech Republic will win 5-0. Meanwhile I hope Cilic and Coric can French fry the French team in Davis Cup.

    Margaret Court and Martina Navratilova

    played doubles together in 1975. Would love to see footage of that match. They lost a SF to Goolagong-Wade 6-4, 3-6, 7-6.

    Wish this video actually showed them playing points.

    https://www.atpworldtour.com/en/video/how-would-todays-players-fare-with-a-wooden-racquet I have long called for an exhibition with current and retired pros playing with wooden rackets. I would like to have seen these ATP players hit the groundies, serves and volleys. I bet they would almost to...

    How Many Matches Has Federer lost after holding match point(s)?

    It seems that Roger has lost an inordinate amount of matches where he has actually held a match point. Does anyone know if there is an accurate count? Likewise Cilic seems to be the master of losing 5 set matches after being up 2 sets to 0.

    Should Stan Play Challengers?

    I think he should to build stamina and the ability to play back to back matches with the old enthusiasm and success.

    Martina taking it to Evert

Evert last won the Aussie Open in 1984 and then Martina took the title from her in 1985. Evert last won the French in 1986 and...

    Jimmy Arias and Buy Sell Hold

    Thanks Mr Arias for calling out Serena and her still minimal mobility. Wow she still does not look light on her feet and I am expecting an early exit from Paris. Thanks for selling her and raising the issue all the others ignore. Thanks too for selling Fritz. He is is a nice looking dude with...

    Mecir's style of Play versus Rafa on clay

    I was thinking the other day that Miloslav Mecir handled the topspin of the Swedes very handily back in his day. He was not an extreme hitter like Soderling but might his style have matched up well against Rafa? Could players emulate his approach to stop the Nadal train? Clearly what almost all...

    No Diego No

    Ok what's up with Schwartzy? The last two tournaments he's been blasted score wise winning only three games in both matches to Gasquet and Tsistipas. I was hoping he'd have a big coat court season. Have people figured out how to beat him?

    Schwartzman

    Yikes, never though he'd win a 500. Beats Verdasco second time in a few days easily. Harrison next, which is winnable. If he can consistently reach his seeding and be around to take advantage of decimated draws like in NY last fall he could slip into the top ten. He is a great competitor and...

    Margaret Court v. Serena Maternity Comebacks

    Granted Court was considerably younger at 28 than Serena was as first time mothers. Both played major finals in early pregnancy with Court bowing to Goolagong at Wimby in 1971 and Serena trumping her sister last year Down Under. Court delivered in March 1972 and returned to the tour for the US...

    Chris Evert Needs to Marry a Frenchman

    This will complete her marital Grand Slam and likely lead to her longest marriage. 2 Aussie Opens and a short marriage to Greg Norman 3 Wimbledons and an abbreviated marriage to John Lloyd 6 US Opens and her longest marriage to Andy Mill 7 French Opens and possibly her longest marriage yet?

    Mate Pavic

    Any ideas why this fellow was left off the Croatian roster? If they can beat Canada, Croatia will be very formidable. Maybe they can get it across the finish line this November.

    Wozniacki

    Usually like her but lately I have noticed that snotty attitude when things don't go her way. Last night was particularly annoying. I wouldn't mind seeing her win it but I trust that she will wimp out per her usual and get blasted off the court by Keys or another heavy hitter. The more you know...

    Underdressed?

    http://people.com/movies/golden-globes-2018-emma-stone-brings-billie-jean-king/ I liked this movie and I think BJK is a good spokesperson for tennis. My comment is this is slightly better dressed up than she would wear when she appears on tv at the Slams. For me this was the equivalent of a...

    Bouchard at the Hopman Cup

    3 straight set losses to Gavrilova, Kerber and Mertens. 1 and 4, 1 and 3, 4 and 4. Ouch Not looking like 2018 will be any better than the last few years.

    Fed Cup Finale

    Thank you Coco for winning the Fed Cup for the USA. Would love to see Coco break through in 2018 and win a major. Let's hope that Sloane Stephens gets back on track soon. Not sure what is up with the US Open champ. Hasn't won since that final in September.

    Battle of the Sexes

    I enjoyed this movie. It was advertised ad nauseum on the Tennis Channel and while costing $25 million so far it has grossed only about half that amount. I wonder how often it ran on the network that carries the WTA. Does anyone know? It was a good enough movie so it is sad that it can't quickly...

    Poor Berdych

    The constant in the Laver Cup equation is Berdych; he plays Europe loses. Particularly sad that it's in his homeland.

    Laver Cup Like a B & W Movie

    Is it me or is this like an old movie with just splashes of red and blue shirts? Is Spielberg producing this?

    John McEnroe it's Zver-ev not Zuh-ver-ev

    He is driving my nuts. I wonder if he says: who-er instead of hoar, ****-a-roach in stead of ****-roach. Didn't he go to Stanford?

    Major Overhaul of Tennis

    I am tired of hearing about all these injuries. I hope that the various organizations in the sport are investigating. Is there too much ball variation? Are the rackets the culprit and the styles of strokes that they allow causing this injury explosion? I for one think it may be time to return to...

    Leave WTA to Tennis Channel Plus please

    Since we haven't seen the women week in week out since the Sunshine Double I grew used to not seeing them. They can collect their contract proceeds and please stay off the Tennis Channel altogether as far as I care. Absence has not made this heart grow fonder. I actually know a lot of the ATP...
