    2022 Australian Open - Women's singles - General Discussion

    Barty looks good to win the whole thing. Halep looks happy and relaxed so she might go deep.... A Barty - Halep final would be nice provided Halep doesn't stumble until then.

    Can Someone explain to me Djokovic’s case follow through in Australia? (Pun Intended)

    Here, read the court documents at the link below and form your own opinion. https://www.fedcourt.gov.au/services/access-to-files-and-transcripts/online-files/djokovic There is another link for the first case but this has most of the docs from that one plus more.

    Rome tournament director says Djokovic will need to follow the rules to play

    He'll play any tournament held in countries which do not require full vaccination for foreign nationals as a condition of entry. I don't think any tournament director will have the guts to pull another Tiley and make his/her own rules/exceptions without proper endorsement from the government...

    Djokovic probably will not be able to play Indian Wells

    I think most people understand that the only safe way to travel these days is to know the rules and fully comply with them (whether or not you agree with them) and understand that each sovereign country is entitled to its own rules which you should observe and respect. More so, given the times...

    Djokovic probably will not be able to play Indian Wells

    I'm sure he did but at times he used others as scapegoats... even in the border interview, he was saying, my manager, or my team did fill out this or that...at some point I believe he said something like the Victorian government submitted his travel application.... or some nonsense like that...

    Djokovic probably will not be able to play Indian Wells

    Never did. He wrote "I assume...." which is different. The Minister (Gov lawyers) was clever.... he chose not to challenge most of the points made by Djokovic lawyers by "assuming" they are correct ... He based his justification on arguments the lawyers could not challenge....

    Djokovic probably will not be able to play Indian Wells

    I think the take away for him from this experience should be that he needs to know and observe the host country travel rules applicable to the general public, unless he has government sanctioned derogations on hand and in writing rather than backroom arrangements with the tournament organizers.

    2020 Roland Garros - WTA General Discussion

    Boy I like this girl! I hope she takes the title and only go up from there. If she does, I hope she manages well the aftermath of this meteoric rise and remains grounded and keeps working and winning to stay at the top. Too many players which had sudden success folded after that proving their...

    2020 Roland Garros QF: Rafael 'Rafaello' Nadal v. Jannik 'the unrepentant' Sinner

    Why are the ball kids wearing shorts and t-shirts while everyone else on the court wears jackets?

    Happy for Iga! Again, I hope she takes it all and to me, she most deserves it.

    2020 Roland Garros - WTA General Discussion

    Got up early only too see the bad news about Halep. My gut feeling was right this time unfortunately. Sad she lost not only the match but the chance to mark another couple milestones for her career. Anyway, happy it was Swiatek at least! I like this girl a lot since I saw her playing in...

    2020 Roland Garros - WTA General Discussion

    Don't discount Muguruza. She can go all the way too. Even Garcia. She's a good clay player and she takes energy from the home crowd. I wouldn't be surprised at all if she upsets Svitolina. Yes, Halep is a strong contender especially that she is winning her matches rather than her opponents...

    2020 Roland Garros - WTA General Discussion

    Point is these ladies are "old", anonymous, low ranked players not young up and coming. Some beat youngsters too along the way. Trevisan beat Gauff for example.

    2020 Roland Garros - WTA General Discussion

    Interesting fact: 3/8 players from the top half who made the second week are ranked outside of top 100, largely unknown entities and not even young. At least one will make QF too.

    2020 Roland Garros - WTA General Discussion

    Ostapenko is one to watch from now on. If her game and head are on the same time, she could beat anyone on this surface.

    Great hope Halep - How far now?

    Glad she got this one in the bag. It was long due. Next should be Cincy - 3 lost finals.

    WTA Italian Open (Rome) 2020

    Glad my gut feeling was wrong and Halep got it done although she kept me on the edge of the seat in the third. Hopefully she has what it takes this time around to finally lift the trophy here so she can complete Roma-Madrid-Paris triumvirate.

    WTA Italian Open (Rome) 2020

    My money is on Muguruza to win it all. She's in winning form. I wish Halep would win but.... Muguruza has the first chance here IMO.

    Pretty good lineup for QF. Except perhaps for Putintseva, no dark horse really.

    I Stand By Bouchard: Leader of the Genie Army, Ready to Rise and Conquer the World!

    LOL... This is a hilarious post. That's maybe true in your own fantasy world....but in the real world she's #216 in live rankings after this win.

    Great hope Halep - How far now?

    Is there any report of injury for Simona as a reason for pulling out of Doha? Too bad if she decided to pull out unless she is injured. There is plenty of time to recover for Sunshine Double even if she goes all the way. She looks in pretty good form at the moment and she should capitalize.
