Novak Djokovic wins French Open, will he win the Grand Slam?
yeah, good point regarding money. I just find the whole thing messy. This whole pandemic has showcased the weakness of tennis governance and all its completing bodies.I don't think the FFT can do anything else, they have got to try and have fans as much as possible, pushing back one week will help. I don't get the hate on them when really when it comes down to it, the slams are the money makers in our sport, a couple of 250 events aren't, the FFT can do what they want. The issue last time was that they didn't have consult anyone at all, which isn't great but then again they have to look for their own interests as well.
Again, I won't be sure the French Open starts till it actually begins.
seems more like a streamer than a tennis player nowadays.
It's the position I've come to as well. Had great hopes for him and was hoping he'd be a top 5 player, making the pointy ends of a couple of slams. I simply don't care about him either. The tennis world moves on quickly.I don't really care about Krygios and if he never plays again as he is not interested.
Lol, It has felt like they needed this to reduce some of the over crowding of good matches. They always seem limited because they can't have four to five games on the main courts like some of the other Grand Slams.Wimbledon have announced they are stopping the Middle Sunday from 2022. I might be one of the few that doesn't like this move but that's mainly because that Sunday night is used for sleep catchup....
the F1 in November will be interesting. That will give us an indication of what's going to happen.I know it's only May, but I do have concerns with the Australian summer of tennis in 2022. If the same strict quarantine conditions are in place for the players (which seems to be the case with this current Federal government), I can't see players doing it en masse for a 2nd straight year.
Ha Ha Ha - I posted the same last week - Even though Grand Slam's offer big pay days the players have fairly much a full calendar in 2021, albeit with prizemoney at around 60% of normal levels, though this will come back closer to 100% in the second half of the year - Players will not quarantine for a second year - The Formula 1 is supposed to happen in November and allegedly travelling protocols have been sorted BUT this was done on the basis of OZ being fully vaccinated by October which is not happening.I know it's only May, but I do have concerns with the Australian summer of tennis in 2022.
