The virus is going to be around next year as well, Kyrgios and Barty going to skip next season as well?
There may well be something available by mid year next season. Barty literally hasn't been able to train how do you realistically expect her to be there? Kyrigios is a mug anyway, he's happy with his newest flame.

Good wildcards. Bouchard actually deserves one, with good recent results. Looks like the partnership with the USTA and Tennis Australia has ended regarding wildcards .

Halep is a master on clay and is my tip, but my smokie is Elise Mertens. Despite not winning titles she's been strong and consistently good at the AO, Prague, Cincinatti, US Open. Record on clay checks out as good enough.

capacity has been slashed, as covid cases have risen. only 5K now allowed inside, all on the main court. was going to be 15K

Hope the FFT has the bubble sorted.

halep for me. bertens is a real chance but would like to see her form.

Kenin got tharshed 6-0 6-0 by Azarenka this morning lol

How did this girl win a slam lol
She's a very good young player, not all of them have handled this season well but you could say that about a lot of the top 15 players. Id be just letting the dust settle on these players, a lot of them have had different routines and schedules than what theyd have planned for.

This tournament is on risky ground I'd say. Two players in qualifying have tested positive overnight and 3 other players who are close contacts have also been removed from the tournament. 23,000 new coronavirus cases in France over the weekend as well.

This has a lot more risk compared to the usopen which had a successful bubble with no crowds.

I am shocked they finished the Tour de France. those crowds were scary. Macron doesn't want to shut-down again is perhaps the saving grace.

but I also feel that the FFT is sleepwalking into disaster.

So, if Halep wins the French open, she becomes the new number 1 in the world.

Kinda of dislike the current ranking system, where nothing gets taken off. I know why they had to do it, but it just doesn't seem right.
