So, you are replacing the ATP Cup with the Hopman Cup, which was replaced by the ATP Cup in the first place

You know, it is almost as if you should never have replaced the Hopman Cup in the first place.

in saying that, it looks more like an ATP/WTA Cup than the ITF run Hopman Cup. Tennis, the ability to fight battles amongst itself.

Meh, I liked the first version of the ATP Cup (pre-covid), couldn't really care less about the Hopman Cup

If it's an ATP/WTA run thing with points then I am all for it

The ATP say they won't give out ranking points if the ban goes ahead.

Yet, some members of the ATP tour are unhappy with this move - What are these players thinking ! You can't have ranking points when certain players are ineligible for the tournament.

I don't think she would trade that gold medal for a slam title. Meant the world to her. Sad that injures robbed her a chance to build on that success.

Nor sure if worthy of a thread or not. We are going to get a lot of these in the coming years. A retirement thread or something similar. Fed will be v.soon as well, on top of Venus.

Serena Williams announced her retirement a couple of days ago. She will retire after the US Open.

She was so very close to catching Court for the most Grand Slam titles. She also went super close to the grand slam on top of that but did capture the Serena Slam(held all GS titles in a non-calendar year) a couple of times. An absolute great beyond words. It was unthinkable of the WTA not to have Serena not contending a couple of years ago. I think she only won 1 title since coming back from pregnancy as she seemed to get tighter and tighter in those big matches.

Of course, there is the drama as well. The whole coaching incident v Osaka at the US Open final. Then threatening to hurt a lineswoman at the US Open semis against Kim Clijsters.
