    Fritz's entry into the clay season did not start well, for multiple reasons.

    Wertheim has always been a serena apologist. I like his writing and on TC a lot and read his mailbag every week, but this is one of the things I can say I dislike about him. He can't have a reasonable conversation about Serena without defending her every move, not being objective is what comes to mind

    World No. 479 Tara Moore was losing about as badly as it is possible to lose to No. 201 Jessika Ponchet at the ITF event Tuesday in Sunderland, England. One bagel had been served and the other was nearly done cooking. At 0-6, 0-5, 30-40, Ponchet had a match point to put Moore away. But in that rally, Moore backpedaled to hit an overhead, clipped the net cord, and watched the ball drip just inside the line. Crisis averted.

    Somehow, Moore’s near-death experience wasn’t the wildest comeback of all time:

    Monte Carlo gives FAA a Wild Card. Gets a qualifier 1st round then Sasha

    Shapo gets Struff.

    Tsonga/Fritz 1st Round.

    According to the video boards at TD Garden that were in the background of a tweet from the Maple Leafs, Laver Cup 2020 will be in Boston.

    Wow. With more than 250,000 fans attending annually, the Finals thus brought in 15 per cent of the ATP’s revenues, which stood at US$144million in the last financial year.

    Like we all totally expected a month ago, Thiem wins Indian Wells but doesn’t make the QF’s of Monte Carlo somehow.

    Medvedev had some chances in the 2nd but couldn't capitalize. Going 3. Novak is drop-shoting him to death.
