Shame that Barty v Kvitova is the QF rather than the SF.

How ridiculous are the WTA rankings? Collins had never won a GS match and missed being seeded by 1!
not really.

She went on a huge run, similar to what she is doing now, at Indian Wells/Miami. She is either hot or cold in a tournament.

The points you get for a massive run from a masters tournament can last a long time. See jack Sock from last year.

if you can be seeded having never won a grand slam match then I'm 100% in favour of cutting back the number of seeds

Interesting stat, Federer hasn't won a match longer than three sets in over a year.
That's why he plays quick aggresive points. He is trying to win every match in straight. The same thing happened against millman last year, as soon as the match goes to at least 4 sets the energy levels drop and so does the level of play. It's why he tries to preserve his body as much as possible, he cannot do a marathon 5 setter anymore. The key to beating him now should be to take a set off him and drag him into grueling baseline rallies until eventually he cracks.

May not have time to watch tennis over the year since majority of the time it takes place in USA/Europe. I know its all on tennis TV but is there a cheaper way of getting it apart from nigerian streams?
The easiest way to see a fair bit of it is through a betting account. I've found Bet365 to have the best coverage (as in the most extensive).

Interesting common denominator here.
A lot of idiot Serena fangirls would like to throw the racist card out there.

I absolutely despise Sharapova, I guess I'm racist against fit and pretty blonde women.

I like some of the men, some of the women, some that are white, some that are black, some that are Asian.

Catters 070911 started a thread about player behaviour; I admit that if someone behaves like a flog then there's a good chance I can't support them.
