Schmieds won the Privatbanka Open 2020 in her home country earlier this month. She beat some good players as well, like Bencic

Covid is killing her comeback to the top 20

Hasn't really been enough tennis for a year end tournament anyway. Would be a hot mess with some of those ball bashers coming in off no preparation.

i actually don't think it looks too bad overall. short matches. If the ATP did theres now, you would have Cristian Garín(who?) in the finals

but yeah, in terms of sports reasons, there is no need for a 1/2 a year-end of season champs.

I really can't see the Aus open going ahead in January.


The Australian open golf tournament is now gone , really struggling to see a way out of this pandemic

I must admit, I find it hard to follow these tournaments. The return of the tour will be interesting next week.

crazy to think we are just a month away from the US Open.

I just had a realisation that if the US open does go ahead, in what will be a significantly weakened field, it could present Serena her best chance at claiming another slam title.

Right on cue. .

Ashley Barty is not going to the us. Huge rumours about Halep and Nadal. That is a huge blow to the legitimacy of the slam imo. The world number 1 deciding to not play.

There is a lot of good us women players still but you would think this is her last chance. Age waits for no one.

Top 50 players not entered in WTA 'Cincy' (via TennisForum):
Barty, Halep, Svitolina, Andreescu, Osaka, Martic, Kerber, Wang, Pavlyuchenkova, Zheng, Stephens, Goerges, Ostapenko, Hercog.
That's 7 slam champions missing (one expects some of them still play USO though)..

That is a lot of talent not doing a lead up event. 1 has confirmed no US swing. Let's see who else
