    Weeks at #1 - WTA - How high can Swiatek climb?

    The WTA has had computerized rankings for 47 years, and Iga Swiatek already ranks 15th in most weeks (not necessarily consecutive) at #1. Below is a quick copy/paste of the top 15: So, if Iga holds on for another year, she'll already be in the Top Ten for this category. I admit to being bad at...

    What is wrong with the WTA being wide open (Genuine question) ?

    I see lots of people complaining about how wide open the US open is, and i don't understand why, surely having lots of players that are at the skill level to win a grand slam is a good thing and i don't mean like Emma Raducanu, more like Osaka and Iga, those who have multiple or come close to...

    Barty shows leadership in these demanding times

    Don’t understand tennis channel

    I was watching the Tsitsipas match. In the second set, tied 4-4. Tennis channel switched to show a women’s match of lower ranked players. Tsitsipas, #5 in the world who has a chance of winning the entire thing is being pushed aside for a women’s match with players who are not even top 20, one of...

    My avatar(Sorana Cirstea) won a tournament playing attacking tennis w/o dropping a set in Instanbul!

    She demolished the top seed in the final: Often brilliant, not only aggressive. It has served Sorana well to eat side by side with me, in a "Beautiful" restaurant by a lake in Bucharest a couple of years ago :)

    Thought this was fascinating to watch — former WTA player Julia Efremova raising her children to be competitive tennis players. She was also recently featured on the Functional Tennis Podcast.

    WTA tournaments in China is cancelled for 2020 season, including WTA Finals

    It's a report that was easy to expect, but WTA foolishly thought that its tournaments in China could take place, at least some of them, despite China's announcement that no international sporting event would take place on its territory in 2020. For WTA, canceling Chinese tournaments means a big...

    Biggest racquet differences between ATP and WTA

    I'm curious about some of the ways in which racquets (tend to) differ between tours. I'd imagine ATP players generally use heavier racquets w/ higher swingweights, but are there other key differences? Is my assumption about weight even correct? Would love specific player examples, too

    Maximum racquet weight allowed on tour

    I was wondering if there is a maximum weight allowed on tour as there is a maximum racquet length allowed on tour (29 inch). I just want to know if maximum weight is regulated by some one on the WTA, ATP or ITF tour. Thanks.
