2019 ATP/WTA thread

Recommended Posts

Ferrer and Zverev playing a very high quality match right now in the Hopman cup. In my opinion the Australian swing is the best part of the year, even more than the US swing in the summer.

Serena beat Sakkari in straights today in the Hopman Cup. She usually doesn’t try in exhibition matches so I was surprised she won it

Venus over Vika in 3 in Auckland. Just absolutely amazes me how rarely anyone mentions Venus’ shrieks, she is clearly louder than Maria or Vika.

Welp, we made it all the way to January 2 before we get Rafa’s first withdrawal of the season. 

We shoud set an O/U, I’m thinking 6.5.

Genie & Kenin just won the Auckland doubles crown after getting served an opening set breadstick.

The kid keeled over with a break lead in the second, got boatraced from there. Hot Julia with the breadstick for the title.

Petra v. Sabalenka in R1 is dirty. 

Petra wins. Probably best for Aryna to get some rest after Shenzhen.

That was a goddamn AWFUL match. Alexandrova fell up a break & 30-0 in the second, then the whole thing just unraveled. The last half of the 3rd was not a good look for the sport.

56 UEs for the Rooskie, 46 for Sloane.

Davenport could barely keep it together, she really wanted to rip both players.

Sloane usually doesn't put her best foot forward in smaller tournaments so in my head I'm imagining Sloane trying hard to tank but still somehow accidentally winning due to her opponent somehow playing even worse

Ha, Sloane basically did the exact opposite of her last match this time. 6-3, 6-7, 0-6. Didn’t see it, can’t imagine she really busted her ass in the third.

The AO draw is out, but I can't find the fucking pdf versions to start the thread. 

Genie is lined up for Serena in R2, winner should get Simona in the 4th.

Andy says there’s a good chance this is his last tourney. Would rather retire at Wimbly, but isn’t sure he can even make it there. 

Damn, that’s a bad hip injury.

Forgot he had two golds. 

we were in london for his 2012 olympic gold and his 2013 wimbledon run.  i actually went to that wimbledon but didn't see any of his matches.  it was interesting to see how much the english didn't like murray.  they found him off-putting.  but when he won both times there was a sense of "at last a brit won".   he definitely didn't have the love of the people like henman.

Sad to see him go. Biggest high-profile retirement in tennis since Agassi, I'd think.

To achieve what he did, all within the era of the Big Three, really is impressive.

Murray's technically Scottish, yeah? Englishmen and Scots are natural enemies.

Wow had no idea Murray’s injury was that severe. That’s terrible. Loved his style of play.
