Jack Sock with a top-50 win! Straight sets over Humbert at the Indian Wells Challenger.
Watching the Kenin quarterfinals match from Lyon. She's damn near unbeatable when she gets locked in a groove. Until she gets too excited about being close to winning.
Dodin was really impressive as well. She has quite the serve just a matter on if she can get to balls. Then again the way Kenin was smashing shit on both sides of the court I'm not sure there are many that could.
Yeah, it helps that sometimes it looks like kenin is trying to guess where first serves are going and gets it wrong or just doesn't want to make the effort to get to them.
Kerber withdraws from Indian Wells and Miami, leg still not healthy. After IW (had Finals points to defend), she’ll be outside the top-40.
Yeah she did not adjust her positioning all match. First serve, second serve didn’t matter which I found a bit odd.
Also side note I took Kasatkina on the first half of a parlay with Kenin. That blown 5-2 lead and then subsequent 5-2 TB lead that she gave up had me shitting a little.
Simona out of IW as well with a foot injury.
Andreescu out of Indian Wells.
Reminds me I was thinking today about venues that can handle both men and women at the same time. It’s probably more than I know but what are they? Obviously majors and where else?
IW, Miami, Cincy, DC, Madrid, Rome, Eastbourne off the top of my head. Then the Asia swing has some.
Acapulco just did as well
Anyone watching Kenin and see the cameraman pick out the dude who is absolutely digging in his nose?
Holy shit, they cancelled Indian Wells.
Lord have mercy. This is getting ridiculous
Really sucks that IW was canceled. I realize why, just saying for selfish reasons it sucks.
Really is a shame. Probably the most enjoyable two weeks on the calendar just from a fan perspective. Tennis on all day, great venue, not as hectic a schedule since its best of 3, etc.
Look it's a really bad flu/cold
Miami, for now, planning to go forward as scheduled.
I think I'm watching a Venus Williams match. But it's 2020. This has to be a rerun... Damnit Corona virus.
If you’re jonesing for some tennis, TC replaying the Andreescu-Kerber IW final from last year at 7PM. Was a fun as hell match.
-Easter Bowl (USTA National Championships) has been cancelled. Was scheduled to be played at Indian Wells.
-Reports out there that the Miami Open could announce a cancellation of the 2020 tournament as early as today.
-There are rumors out there that the ATP and WTA are meeting today and considering a 6-8 week long suspension of the tours.
For the men, that's:
Assuming the same window for the women, that's:
-A week of Fed Cup
Hey that lets Bibi rest for a little longer
Same goes for Roger after his surgery.
Really curious to see are they going to subtract those points or let them stay another year.
Would be massive for Shapo/FAA not to lose those Miami points
French Open announces they've moved the tournament to Sept 20th-Oct. 4th. That's a week after the US Open and during Laver Cup. So, yeah.
if that holds up, what an awesome month of tennis.
Let's put Wimbledon in mid-October!
Laver Cup will be easy to move
just wonder what will happen to the clay court season in its entirety.
and Roland Garros construction timeline will be dicey
Wimbledon won't be able to be held on the grounds, would need to be all indoors. I legit don't think they have a more than a month in either direction for latitude there with the weather.
Edit: Obviously if it needed to move. Was in reference to bro post.
Wuhan lol legit made me lol.
The USTA has politely told Roland Garros to fuck off.
One year ago today, a star was born
That was such a fun couple weeks. And the rematch in Miami and the drama queen stuff, stoked by Kyrgios of all people on Twitter.
I really do miss tennis so much these days. The one sport where you can find a match to watch every day of the year basically.
Totally forgot about Kyrgios. One of the most impressive years I can remember. Literally 152nd to 4th. Winning 3 straight tournaments she finished, Indian Wells, Toronto, US Open. I cant wait to see her healthy for a clay court season.
I can't wait for the next couple years of Bibi & Kenin.
And you are so right, I miss Tennis more than anything right now. Miss the Sunshine double and then right into the clay.
One thing I just thought of, this virus has a possibility of stopping Novak from catching Roger.
Good on the USTA folks for pitching in.
Wimby canceled. What a fucking crazy time. Thats probably my most looked forward to sporting event each year. It will be missed.
Wimbledon officially cancelled. All tournaments cancelled now through July 13th. Sad day.
No change for the US Open yet, but seems inevitable at this point.
Well I definitely know I am not going to the US Open this year which blows.
Federer announces he'll play Halle in 2021 now that Halle 2020 is cancelled.
Very good read here.
Q: The current hypothesis is to have a clay swing in mid-September. Could Rome be re-converted as an indoor event?
A: We are working on the possibility of a four-weeks clay swing after the US Open. The best-case scenario would be to have the North American swing during the summer, then the clay, then Asia, and then the ATP Finals. If that were to happen, it would mean that we saved 80% of the season after cancelling the grass tournaments. With seven Masters 1000 and three Slams taking place, there wouldn’t be much room for complaints. If the US Open gets cancelled, the complexity of the situation would grow exponentially, because we should consider playing in November and December too, but at the moment we are focusing on a re-start after the Wimbledon slot.
I assume most of you saw this by now but if not.
