    Anybody know whether you get TC if you sign up for TC Plus? The website doesn't give a clear answer.

    Trying to figure out options now that YoutubeTV is dropping TC.

    You do not, you only get the shit that’s not aired on TC. Pretty much means the week is done when tournaments get to QFs.

    edit Check out suppose.tv for cheapest option. Last i looked it was Sling.

    WTA as a part of their new rebrand has changed their tournament classifications to match the ATP, thank god.

    So no more Premier Mandatory, Premier International, etc. Now it’s WTA 1000, WTA 500, et al.

    Is there any chance they could make Miami a 1000 or is that impossible because of logistics/politics?

    edit: sorry two weeks as opposed to one?

    Already 2 weeks as well <3

    But I guess they could make it a 4 week tournament maybe.

    They might move it somewhere would be my guess. Almost like they moved Cincinnati to New York before the US Open. Maybe do it in Orlando the new head of the USTA

    That’s where my mind was going but obviously Miami wasn’t the spot. Lol hope they do get creative.

    Melbourne now 4 weeks without a Covid case.

    If Victoria can keep it going through XMas then AO has great chance of success. No reason for players to bail except for acute health reasons. Then by Roland Garros we may be cooking with a vaccine stew unless you partook in the Adria Tour.

    The official schedules are not out there yet

    https://yellowtennisball.com/schedule/

    They dont have the matches listed but the big names, they always put them in stone so people will buy the tickets.

    Last year I bought tickets for the Del Potro session. Had no idea what the first match was going to be and it was Steve Johnson vs. Radu Albot. Then Del Potro vs. Mackie McDonald

    Im going with my girl and another couple that went last time. They have no idea about tennis and had a blast. It'll be fun regardless. Just a little disappointed in not seeing one of the greats.

    Delray is a nice setting. Stadium is right on the strip. Atlantic Ave in Delray is one of the bigger hot spots in the area. You dont get the massive names like Fed/Rafa. Thats why I was looking forward to Murray. Del Potro was the biggest name there in a long time from my understanding.

    $60 tickets and im 4 rows behind the baseline.

    i'm assuming they can no longer challenge If hawkeye calls lines? Or can they just ask to see the video anyway? Assuming there is no way to overturn a call unless the chair ump does it on their own during play?

    My understanding and what I've seen is there is no challenges. But they are allowed to ask to see the video
