    Anyone else going to USO 2019?

    I'm thrilled to be going back (was there 2 years ago)! A Grandstand ticket or a grounds pass is a great value, although not nearly as good a value as 2 years ago. We're going on Day 1. So many matches to watch! (although just found out that none of the Canadians we wanted to watch -- Denis...

    If something happens to me....

    I have to admit that I posted things on Twitter, where I took offense to MBS of Saudi Arabia. If something happens to me, well, you can guess what happened. Beyond that, go ATP tennis!!

    Debate topic: FAA is the future tennis darling

    Opening statement: Federer has achieved 'God-like' status with fans, both casual and knowledgeable. Nadal, also has a massive following, who naturally find him irresistible. They both have indefinable qualities that draw in large fan bases, from far beyond the die-hard fans who focus on the game...

    Who would be a good coach for Shapo?

    I don't want to jinx things, BUT, Marty Laurendeau has been off for 4 months now with a back injury and 19 year old Denis is trying to find his way. His mother has been a wonderful coach, but he needs someone at this critical juncture to step in and help him deal with some of his "problems"...

    US Open battle of the prodigies: Shapovalov v Aliassime

    No doubt the worst thread ever in light of their rankings....but let's face it that these two are hopes of the future. So who do you have? Will Shapo flex his experience or will Felix build on his incredible momentum? Who do you have??

    ATP Swiss Open in Gstaad - No one cares

    So no thread has been set up for this tourney. This late clay tournament has been completely ignored not only on TTW but also Tennis TV. Does anybody care? The Fog and Deliciano are lined up to face off in the top half. RBA, is trying a recent comeback, perhaps to face young Coric. What say...

    OD'ing on Fed (and Nadal) threads

    Can we please stop overdosing on Fed? I love the guy, but sometimes this forum is a bit too anal. Below are three random threads in a row. Who will be the AO GOAT should Fed win the 2018 edition ? tennisaddict, Today at 7:43 PM Federer with 1900 racquet + strings vs modern 4.5 level player...

    Why aren't there more Asian stars (male)?

    Nishi is great, but he has his injury problems and needs more cavalry in support. Hyeon Chung looks like a top talent in the making. I hope he continues to progress. Duckhee Lee, as much as I admire him, isn't going to be a star. Nishioka is solid, but he's not going to be a star. Can Yibing...

    Long season winding down

    Impact of gambling on lower level ITF matches

    I know this is nothing new. I know that things won't likely change. But...I feel for most of the players (the ones that are just trying to get a foothold in tennis) who are subjected to this negative force. And, of course, there are those gamblers who are aggressively abusive towards the pro...

    Can Shapovalov stay grounded?

    To have fame thrust upon you so suddenly as a teenager must be difficult to handle. Will Denis be able to keep his head screwed on straight? He seems to have a great family influence and strong team around him. They've done a great job so far. I just hope his attitude stays true. -- Chris...

    Nike US Open swing kits

    My apologies as I don't know how this normally works, but doesn't Nike provide more than one kit option for their players to wear? Or do they gradually "release" a couple of more versions heading into the US Open? All I see Nike players wearing is a plain red top (same style) and royal blue...

    Sorry, I just had to start a thread with Fed's name as I thought it would catch attention. Of course I am happy to tip my cap to Fed as he is the GOAT and deserves the accolades. I absolutely love him. But... I DO believe there are other players in the world tour. Perhaps I am mistaken?? The...

    Life on the road for the pros

    Yes, I'm sure the very top echelon has it a bit easier, although they are still often away from their families, however the pro tennis circuit must be tough for the "rest of them". Most other pro sports don't involve such extensive travel. And, only the very top earn any kind of reasonable...
