One thing I don’t get about tennis. Just like baseball with the sign stealing, I think they should punish the dumb teams tipping themselves off. With technology today I don’t see how you prevent it.
why are you opposed? I’m not looking to argue with people, I’m just curious.
I personally don’t think off court coaching is a big deal. I’d rather they just let the coach on the court and fit it into a change over. My only issue here is this can start slowing play down. But these guys should be able to leverage their coaches. Just my 2 cents.
I just think it takes away something that's at the core of the sport. It's man vs. man, woman vs. woman. Two players on the court at the same time, adjusting on the fly. Noticing and taking advantage of openings while trying to limit those of their own. Problem-solving. The ability to think and process information while also doing extremely athletic things physically.
Players have their coaches with them 24/7, 365. All that time in practice and pre-match prep should be more than enough. Once you hit the court, it should just be on you. I don't want players looking up at their box to get a pointer on where to serve in a big point. I want the player to come up with that themselves. That's how you grow and develop as a talent into a champion.
Simply put --- I want Stefanos Tsitsipas deciding matches, not Aspotolos Tsitsipas.
Serena and Ons doubles about to start on TC.
I agree with every word. What a dumb decision.
Watching Serena & Jabeur play doubles
What Ive seen from Serena, I will be betting against her first round. She looks rough right now
I will say Serena and Jabeur having a lot of fun together
If it was any other female player that hadn't played a competitive match in a year, I'd agree with you. Anyone else. But she's made fools of everyone in the past, more than once.
Sock in the finals of qualifying tomorrow morning
Bibi with a beatdown of Kasatkina
Halep destroys Anisimova
Anyone watch a lot of tennis channel? Just here to say that song on the Disney commercial makes my ears bleed and my eyes see blood. It’s fucking maddening, I’ve literally started to mute the television during commercials and I’d rather listen to a soundtrack of Sharapova grunting for an hour.
Andy will be able to make some noise
first Draw to not have Federer since 1998!
Rafa can't be thrilled to see Querrey looming in R2.
Nick just beat Stefanos in Halle. Has to like that draw as well.
Happy Wimbledon Eve!
Hurkacz losing the first set to Davidoch Fokina I did not see coming
selfishly wish Tommy Paul wouldve played in college
but glad he is developing
Hurkacz down 2-0.
What a stunner this could be
Davidoch serving for the match WOW
Fokina goes for a tweener winner for no reason on match point, and now he's in deuce.
He just fucking choked that game lol Hubie with a wry smile on his face during the changeover.
Struff breaks Alcaraz early
If Hubie gets this set, I am jumping on that bet
Rain potentially saving Fokina here.
The strapping on Alcaraz's elbow is not insignificant.
Well thats disappointing with the rain
Soonwoo Kwon takes the second set off Novak Djokovic.
i adore kwon's drop shot
That FH DTL. What a banger.
please stop having Mcenroe talk about vaccines
Whats the status on the rain. Are we getting back soon
Tomorrows schedule going to be a shit show already with this rain today
Hubert breaks right away.
Hubie to a 4th set. Fokina giving a masterclass in mental midgetry
Davidoch broken again. 4 straight breaks after serving for the match at 40-0
Hubie now up a break in the 4th
WOWOW Davidoch breaks back. Didn't see that coming
Not much of a tennis guy other than major semis and finals but just secured tickets to R16 Sunday on Centre Court. If everything breaks the right way could be Murray v Alcaraz.
I don't think Alcaraz makes it there honestly
With the roof closed, every Alcaraz serve sounds like a cannon firing.
yea its like a clang at times
I can’t believe Hubie got broken twice in this last set
