    Bianca Andreescu!

    That's good company to be with, Martina, Graf, Serena & Bianca. Hopefully she can keep it up.

    Bianca Andreescu!

    So she's had the best winning % season in 36 years?? Graf & Chrissy must have had some great seasons like that too.

    Bianca Andreescu!

    They are both so fast and powerful that the winning shot seems to be hitting behind the other, instead of hitting into the open court. This is going to be an interesting rivalry.

    Bianca Andreescu!

    Looks like Osaka having her Dad back as her primary coach was a smart move. She was able to handle most of Bianca's junk very well, That is something she wouldn't have been able to do 6 months ago. Hopefully this can turn into the new Chrissy vs Martina rivalry that womens tennis needs...

    How to start ITF for junior girls

    True. But you still have more chance of getting into the qualifying or main draw if the town is small and not close to a major airport. The bigger question is how are all of these international kids traveling around the globe playing tourneys that don't pay them anything? Who's paying for...

    Bianca Andreescu!

    "I don't want to sound like cocky or anything, but I kind of forgot how it feels to lose, which I think is a good thing." - Bianca Andreescu Could Bianca end the year with the best winning % in history for a single season? She currently has 45 wins & only 4 losses for the year, which is a 92%...

    How to start ITF for junior girls

    You just have to find an ITF in the middle of nowhere. The qualifying draw should have some open spots in those kind of places.

    How to start ITF for junior girls

    Junior ITF tourneys encourage kids to drop out of regular school and chase points around the world, It's disgusting. Luckily 90% of them come from rich families, so they can fall back on their parents for help them if they don't make it to the pros. Working class kids have no chance to make...

    How to start ITF for junior girls

    Point chaser = rich parents. Of course they won't like it, because they are buying their way into tourneys. UTR needs to replace all of this other BS ranking points.

    Federer 'won't be destroyed' if Nadal beats his grand slam record

    Maybe not "destroyed", after all he is worth more than $400 million, but he will be totally gutted that he won't be able to walk around for the rest of his life known as the best who ever played the game. He wanted to be able to show up at tourneys, when he retires, and be called the GOAT. If...

    Bianca Andreescu!

    I've seen from personal experience, and on TV, that when someone is getting blown out they sometimes give up and just start going for BIG shots. Usually they continue to miss and end up losing even worse, but on some rare occasions those shots start falling in, which gives them some confidence...

    Closest current equivalent to James Blake?

    Kyrgios is just as athletic as Blake, if not more.

    Closest current equivalent to James Blake?

    Ostapenko. Blast every shot as hard as possible and pray it goes in.

    Why doesn't Wawrinka learn to return properly?

    Too big of a grip change from his forehand to backhand to return against 130 mile hour serves, so he basically splits the difference and bunts it back. Why should he change it, if no one is serve and volleying against him?

    Osaka splits from coach

    The only thing that could derail her is injuries.

    Nadal-Federer Slam Race- in a Chart

    Everyone's fitness was tested at this humid US Open, Fed and Nole looked gassed too.

    Nadal-Federer Slam Race- in a Chart

    Wouldn't he have just lost a 1st serve then, but still had his 2nd serve? Sorry, I'm not up on the latest shot clock etiquette.

    Nadal-Federer Slam Race- in a Chart

    So true. Rafa squeaked that final out by the thinnest of margins. What kind of person is down 2 sets to 0 in a grand slam final & can put that mush effort into coming back? Medvedev is clearly insane (which is just what you need if you want to win slams). Gained a whole new respect for the...

    Nadal fans, what of the following do you want the most?

    A WTF would also be nice, just to shut up Fed-boy fans!

    Who will hold the Slam record in two years time?

    It all depends on how Rafa wants to handle married life?? Does he want to pursue the slam record or stay in Mallorca with his new wife and raise some kids (can't see Nadal being selfish like Fed and dragging young kids all over the world just to fill his ego).

    Anyone else feel like Nadal's poor record at the ATP Tour Finals has made the tournament less significance?

    Everything after the US Open and before the Australian Open is insignificant. The real tennis season ended yesterday. WTF is a joke, no real tennis tourney let's someone lose and still be able to win it, #FakeTourney

    Serena says that 24 slam wins for her is inevitable...

    “What we don’t understand is when I get 24 – because it’s inevitable – you guys are going to ask me about 25 and to pass the record.” - Serena https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2019/sep/08/serena-williams-not-giving-up-fight-equal-margaret-court

    Bianca Andreescu!

    So true. Serena played like crap, because of the pressure Bianca applied to her physically and mentally. You're only as good as you can play that given day. People need to stop making excuses for Serena.

    Bianca Andreescu!

    Bianca isn't FAT, she's THICC. Patrick McEnroe would have cut her player funding for being overweight. Luckily she's Canadian and their coaches look at talent, not body type.

    Bianca Andreescu!

    Fluke? No. She's like 8-0 against top 10 players so far in her career. Currently owns Indian Wells, Canadian Open & US Open titles. 2-0 against the G.O.A.T.
