    The Ascent To The Throne Begins For Felix Auger Aliassime

    I'm sure that's his priority, but I wouldn't be surprised if it still took some time before we see a significant difference. His struggles on serve probably cost him an earlier entry into the top 100, as well. I'm not going to hold my breath for 6 months to a year. If it clicks sooner, that will...

    The Ascent To The Throne Begins For Felix Auger Aliassime

    I'm a bit confused. He was doing some sort of clinic with 5 to 10 years old children, then played a bit with some other people to raise money for the academy now owned by his father to develop young players. This was a one day even that had been planned for a long time. I suppose he might have...

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    I'm definetely not doing taxes for anyone else, don't worry. Looks like there were agreements or something I didn't know of and it was more complicated than what was reported in news article I had read here that had dealt with the subject, so thanks for the correction, but I was mainly trying to...

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    I think you are confusing her fitness trainer Virginie Tremblay, who did assume coaching duties but only in Aukland since her actual coach was unable to make the trip. Edit: but since you wonder, she played tennis as a junior, though maybe not at an international level. She consulted regularly...

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    No, because it was not earned in Canada. The Canadian player gets to keep everything that's left after the U.S. taxes were paid for. In other words, the money only gets taxed once, in the original country it was earned, and not in the country the player resides in. The reason why players often...

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    I'm not sure about agreements, but I have to assume that all governments have guidelines for pro athletes winning prize money in their country, and how tournaments manage the money, pretty much like any employer would. All players at the US Open, regardless of their nationality, have to pay...

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    The U.S. tournament can't. The U.S. government does. The Canadian government does it with the prize money at the Rogers Cup, just like the French government does at the French Open. Google it for yourself if you don't believe me.

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    That would impact the money she makes from sponsorship, not her prize money Badabing888 mentioned. Everyone pays taxes according to the country hosting the tournament.

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    Virginie Tremblay, I assume - saw her but don't recall her earrings. She's Bianca's fitness trainer.

    Bianca Andreescu: under the radar but not for long!

    I had no real pre-tournament pick, but I also I thought her chances were as good as anyone else's. I hope she can grab a GS title while she's healthy, so no matter what the future holds, she'll have one to her name.

    The Ascent To The Throne Begins For Felix Auger Aliassime

    Yes, I understand what you are saying. I don't think your point and the point I was making are mutually exclusive. :) It's just that it doesn't make the topics interchangeable, but from what I read you see that as well. ;) Some random comments belong to a specific thread. Others with more...

    The Ascent To The Throne Begins For Felix Auger Aliassime

    No worries. ;) The forum seems to have been upgraded anyway so I don't think the threads could become as confusing to me as they used to. That should work well enough for me.

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

    I said "... WCs that don't translate into main draw wins won't help a player at all", not "...WCs don't help at all". As for the 1 point and $8,000, I was taking for granted that we were referring to a player like Bouchard. 1 point and $8,000 doesn't make any difference for her at this point...

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

    It's not just the US Open. All tournaments work like this. Players do not have access to magical transportation means. They have to make travel plans and reservations like us mere mortals. When they find out they have to qualify for a tournament, they will plan their schedule accordingly so they...

    ... and that's nothing in comparison to the following: Auger Aliassime, Tsitsipas can become tennis greats - Wilander Stay away from the Internet, Felix!!!!! :eek: I would be over the moon with one GS title, but he has to find a way to manage expectations like these. Players before the early...

    Talk Tennis - Like button gone?

    There may be people who are using the "like" button the way you describe, but what you are saying doesn't reflect how I use it. For example, if someone posts a link to an interesting article, maybe there will not be anything in that article that I will then wish to discuss, but I may nonetheless...

    The Shape Of Things To Come: Denis Shapovalov!

    I think it depends on the rankings. They wanted Wawrinka this year since it's in Switzerland, but the organizers wouldn't move on the money there were offering him. Wawrinka felt his ranking didn't reflect his worth since he was still climbing up after having been injured for so long, plus he...

    The Ascent To The Throne Begins For Felix Auger Aliassime

    I was actually very calm when I wrote the previous post; sure, it came from some level of annoyance over how repetitive these occurrences have been (which go back to further than the past two weeks), but I made sure I had a clear mind before writing. I have really no idea where you see any...

    How to get out of a toxic relationship?

    You are welcome! :) Luckily for me, I have never had anyone like that in my very close circle, but once close enough to be left with a lot of unanswered questions. Now I get it; I could even look back and make sense of what had made me uncomfortable in past friendships. It just clicked. It even...

    The Ascent To The Throne Begins For Felix Auger Aliassime

    I still can't figure out why you insist on posting about Shapovalov's double performance two weeks ago or Shapovalov's need for points now in Auger-Aliassime's topic. Imagine if I went into Bianca Andreescu's topic to say I was hoping Katie Volynets wins the first round because she needs the...

    How to get out of a toxic relationship?

    I've suffered so much learning that as a teenager. Makes the rest of your life easier once you've figured it out, however. With that being said, *if* morten is indeed dealing with a narcissist, then that can be particularly tricky. They play all kinds of mind games that "normal" persons...

    Fitness trackers and tennis

    I own a Polar M430. I suppose that may not help the original poster convincing his insurance that he's active if they require a specific device, but for those interested in accurate tennis devices, I find the readings extremely accurate overall. I have no idea if it counts the steps right, I'm...

    How to get out of a toxic relationship?

    I agree. You can warn people all you like, but if they don't even know what you are talking about... I must read way less than 1% of the threads here, so it's unlikely I ever got a chance at noticing what went wrong. Can you help please TW Staff?

    The Shape Of Things To Come: Denis Shapovalov!

    That's too bad. Now I'll have to "pollute" threads with simple posts like "thanks" or other little words like this if I really want to show my appreciation, and I could post interesting things without any reply, leading me to think the information I posted was interesting to no one. Not that I...
