2020 ATP/WTA thread

Recommended Posts

She got lucky because there is usually at least one each reciprocated to someone from the other three Slams’ countries. Not the case with ‘Rona.

Genie & Tsvetana are the only non-Frenchies this time.

Watched some extended highlights between Sloane & Mugaru-th-a and Sloane can play some amazing points and then play kind of like crap. She is not locked in and her face looks like she's just going through the motions and occasionally gets a little annoyed and feels like winning some points and then goes back to going through the motions. It must be a weird time for her.

Another one bites the dust. 

Quote

The 2020 VTB Kremlin Cup in Moscow has been canceled due to issues relating to COVID-19.

Cancellation of the ATP 250 event, scheduled to run from Oct. 19-25, and the WTA Premier event, from Oct. 26 to Nov. 1, follows a recent increase in the COVID-19 infection rate in Moscow. 

As mandated by the Moscow City Administration, the event will no longer be permitted to go ahead in 2020.

TC is bummin’ cause they get the French. 

Quote

Naomi Osaka will not play in the French Open, she announced Thursday night.

Osaka said a sore hamstring will keep her from adequately preparing for the clay court tournament, which begins Sept. 27 in Paris.

She is coming off a win this past weekend at the US Open but had been noncommittal about the French afterward.

Garbine/Gauff playing 3 on TC. 

A replay was just on and Garbine was committing all kinds of unforced errors at the end of the 2nd and start of the 3rd.

Then, up 2-0, Coco completely lost her serve. She served 7 faults in a row, but managed to get her eighth in and won the point to go 15-40. Won the next, then lost and started to spiral. After those 3 double faults in a row, she lost 6 of the next 7 games (including the one with 3 double faults in a row).

Completely confidence evaporation.

Vika double bagel’d Kenin. 😬 

I like Kenin, but I doubt that she ever gets back to a Grand Slam final. She'll probably have a few Slam Semis again in her career, but I just can't imagine her beating two of the top players in a row in a big tournament. Everything went perfectly for her in Melbourne.

Damn, Marketa ate a breadstick.

And of course she promptly returns the favor. Which means the third is likely headed for a breaker.

 

Final... 

 

1-6, 6-1, 7-6(5) for Vondrousova

Women.

Simona Halep was working her ass off (juicing?) during the lockdown. She looks like she could be a stunt double for the battle at the start of “Wonder Woman”

 

Italian Open: Simona Halep extends her perfect record in tennis' restart to 7-0

Putintseva just quits after getting broken to go down 2-0 in the second set. 

She of full labios y culo and an amazing drop shot had supposedly “been receiving treatment in the previous rounds”. (She had already taken  a medical timeout in the first set.)

i think that she (Puti) is my favorite player to watch these day, but she’s out. Halep looked really good. She (Simona) will probably be the betting favorite in Paris. 

Halep could play Azarenka in the next round.

Garbiñe won in 3. 

Yes she did. It was a Jekyll & Hyde match. 

Svitlolina has the neck chains, but her head isn’t in this. Maybe Gael went on to the next tour stop and she’s lost her rudder.

Watching a replay of Sloane Stephens vs ???? Hibino and I don’t know if Sloane is hungover or donated blood right before the match, but she won’t even move for a ball that looks to be headed to 10 feet away from her. 

She just had 10th & 11th double faults to get broken for the 9th time in 11 service games. 

My guess is that her sponsors are requiring her to enter this tournaments, but she hasn’t even moved for the two returns in this latest game.

Because she’s American, the announcers aren’t criticizing her too much, but she is basically throwing the match. She should be investigated for possible betting connections.

There is Russian (who plays for Kazakhstan 🇰🇿), Alexander Bublik, who just spanked the Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime. 

The announcers kept talking about how Bublik is usually an unexplainable erratic player, but was super focused and didn’t do stupid shit for no reason whatsoever and was able to handle Felix in about 75 minutes.
