Hey back My WTA Queen!!….Very very glad Your Highness willing to graced us with your presence!…
Oh!…bout article…it’s just about her rudeness and manner on court with her coach when she got thumped 60 60 by Alize Cornet last week that got the attention…If i were her coach,i’ll dump her in second after she talk like that with me…I mean,if u talk in private like that is okay…but in public??
Oh really ToMMo??U mean she shown her rudeness in public before?And Ostapenko too??…Oh!…i didn’t know!…I think some WTA player’s got an attitude on them…i mean just take a look at when they lost..and their manner when they shake hands with each other…very cold and unfriendly…I don’t understand this attitude…lost or win,it’s not hard to smile…but,yeah…
Yeah ToMMo!….Brackets r coming soon!…can’t wait to fill it!!..I think the underdogs will shown their colours in this event..i just don’t know who!..hehe..
We are here MA!! We never let you down. π
Thanks for the articles. OMG Petra’s hand…that’s horrible. It’s really a miracle that she can play tennis again. But I’m affraid it won’t be 100% ever. :/ It’s really sad.
I will read the other article later. π
I just can’t wait the US Open omg.. π
Hey ToMMo,my Bro!!..At last!!…I’ve been waiting for u since forever!!hehe….Yeah!…Poor Petra!…but,i still have hope that she will return to her full level soon..not only she can play tennis again but this soon??Urgh!….Yeah!That’s miracle ToMMo!…
Tho,i think this article forgot to mention other Americans like D.Young,S.Johnson,T.Paul,R.Harrison etc…oh!rc!…don’t forget about T.Paul okay?Although he went out in 2nd Rd in Cincy but he also reach QF in Washington..tho this is a Slam and not 500’s event…
In our precious jalep_wildguess group in tennisdrawchallenge the grand slams are 2/2 in WTA since I joined…I wanna make it 3 muhahahhaha π π But the competition is tougher and tougher! And of course there’s the Queen rc. π It’s almost like Game Of Thrones, the Queen wants her throne back! π
Good luck for everybody btw. I think it’s gonna be a great grand slam again. π
Hehe…Yeah ToMMo!!…You’re sooooo spot on bout our Queen!!…She maybe injured her arm but her mind…Oh God!…still AMAZING & AWESOME as always!!…Although i would say EVERBODY in our Group really really amazing always with their pick…RC,U,Big AL,Eugene,Welshwitch,Kpuppy,Manwerty…Urgh!every each one of can sneak at the Top any moment…that’s how AWESOME u guys everytime!…
LOL, There’s no city, Roger. Off grid Wilderness. Sawtooths hiking and camping near Redfish Lake, Idaho. No place in the World like it!!! π
Some people like to fish but I like to go hike and explore and then float around on the icy lake on my raft.
That was the hardest bracket to me in this year… I picked Wozniacki over Pliskova in the final. π
But it’s really tough now…There’s Svitolina, Muguruza…I think Halep has a chance again too…and maybe Venus. It’s hard so I went with Woziebaby. π
RC babe!!…U also ROCK in ATP!!…Woohoo!!…U stay there okay??Even Big Al,WW,ToMMotry to pull u down,just kick their a@#es very hard u hear??hahahaha!…Sorry guys!!…just joking!!…
Oh!..bout leaving..not yet babe!!…tomorrow nite..how about we do live blogging and joking and laughing bout stupid things tonite for the last time before i leave??…It’s fun to do that with u rc!!…Oh!…i’m going to miss u too babe!!
I only do one bracket.
A bit hard to work out who’s who with all the aliases!
Glad to see someone else has Elina going far,I was really tempted to put her out to Keys!
Halep is a good pick to go far but big if,she can beat the not – so Sharp one.
So after a busy couple of days entering all the brackets Inc the official US open one,it’s time to sit back and watch it all unfold.
I really don’t know what she did on that match…Okay Krunic had nice months behind her but still…She isn’t on that level yet. Konta played like 2-3 years ago when you couldn’t know If she’s gonna play awesome or rubbish. It was the biggest surprise for me from yesterday. And of course Ferrer…Who saw that’s coming? :O :/
ToMMo!…I read an article bout a week ago suggested that Konta maybe still feeling drained mentally from her deep run at Wimby…she gave everything in that match..and she maybe still suffered from it…i guess,the article was right…if not,how on earth the World No 7 was bundled out by the World 78 and in straight sets?…and in the 1st round?
It’s not often for me with professional athletes, but I genuinely feel sorry for Simmons Halep. I know that she obviously has shown fragility recently in those big moments to reach number one, but she has worked so damn hard to get TO those moments! And it seems like the world is just out to keep her from ever getting to #1! Maria Sharapova, 5-time major champion, getting drawn to play the #2 ranked player?? That’s just harsh… I had a feeling that she would take out Halep, just because of the bad match-up. I really just feel sad for Simona… That’s all I can say.
Yes,I also had the feeling Sharapova would win ,but thought (or hoped) ,surely Halep had had a lot more match practise,she can’t lose this time as no.2 in the world.Cruel .
I think her recent struggles highlight the fact she doesn’t have a big weapon,the big hitters are winning .
Halep doesn’t have a big weapon; she’s playing a baseline game, rarely moving up to the net; she’s not going to beat the hard hitters playing from the baseline. The FO final was one good example, she’s not going to outhit Ostapenko from the baseline, she should at least change up like slicing the ball, threw in some drop shots to bring Ostapenko to the net and then passed her there at the net. She did none of those, playing a one dimensional game but not able to match the hard hitting of her opponent.
She should pick up some tips from Radwanska, and tries to improve her serves too. I also feel that she has mental fragility, manifested during crucial moments in her matches.
Very agree with your analysis like usual Lucky!…Till this day i am very surprised that Cahill didn’t do anything of those things that u’ve just mentioned to improve Simona’s game…i’m also very surprised that Simona seems comfortable with her game even tho she knew that she can’t defeat her big hitter’s opponents with her current style…Cahill already with her for a year?…she should known better than to stay with him if she keep losing like this…I love Simona and it’s my dream too to see her win a slam one day…
I agree about Simona. It was frustrating watching that match. It was almost inevitable that she would lose. She can’t beat the power hitters. Her serve especially needs work. That was a real weakness in the match. She was always playing from behind in her service games. Giving up the early break in the third set pur her under pressure immediately.
At this point, Simona can only go so far. She is losing the big matches, the French Open, the chance to be #1 against Mugu.
I thought she stayed in the match mentally, but did not have the weapons to win the match.
Hey Nny!!…Yeah!..always happy to see u commenting so enthusiastically Milady!!..And your darling win comfortably now!!Yayyyy!!!
Btw…Will miss your name in the Bracket but understood/respect your decision Nny!!…Hope we can have u back in the future Nny!!
I agree with almost everything. The only thing which I think differently is that this year’s Garros was her final. She was absolutely winning that match…then suddenly something just happened. Maybe that was all about that mental fragility. I still think that Simona lost that FO final and not Ostapenko won that if you know what I mean.
But your words about her game are all true. She need more variety. Almost all the girls with this playing style are better in this. And the serves…Yeah she definetely needs to improve.
Oh really Nny??…Urgh!…A few days ago,i read about how she said that she’s not feeling the pressure anymore…and i thought now she could play freely after lost her No 1…and at least can go far beyond the 1st round…oh well!…hope she can find herself back as soon as possible..She’s one of the most nicest player on Tour…and i like her very much….
Coco snubbed the umpire today. Called the ump and indiot and then didn’t shake hands after the match. Really disappointing to see. I like coco but she needs an attitude adjustment if she’s ever going to make the best leap.

You think mannarino will win?!
I reckon pliskova is going out soon…she’s really lost focus.. reckon the loss at Wimbledon to rybarikova really affected her badly.
Shrieky won’t beat garbine.. Garbine is the better player..
I’m sorry, amy! do you have livescore on your phone?
Yes am using limestone!!
Ps wasn’t rublev the one who got gas at Wimbledon??!!
Jeez I meant limestone!!
I am very very worried about dolgo in the fourth rc..if Rafa is nervous and his forehand goes astray as a result then he could go out.. Dolgo can get really hot if given a chance..
You mean got gassed? as in faded out?
My phone twice corrected livescore
to limestone!! Jeez!
No..am sure I remember you saying his stomach had digested itself and he had gas and that was the unpoetic cause of his tragic expressions..!!!
Oh yes, that’s right, Ruby was bending over and holding his stomach. Thank you for reminding me. Yikes, I hope he’s improved his fitness and I really want to see the match. But it’s definitely not a priority for ESPN, I’d guess.
Mannarino looks like he’s had a hair transplanting procedure, btw. He was losing his hair last year — not that this matters. But wondering if his hair has played a part in his improved season this year? He’s had some surprising wins this year.
Me too, Amy…I’ve been planning all week to stay home and watch tennis all day this Saturday — I like most of the matches. And if you were here it would be PERFECT! Rafa match coming up π and so many WTA ones. Fresh ground coffee – really good stuff.
Karolina, won ugly. I thought. She fought in the end but she wasn’t comfortable. I picked her to the final, too.
Watching Bosstapenko π
Go boss!! Let’s see if she can deliver the goods on hard courts..
I switched to Delpo’s match. Boss isn’t able to boss Daria that much… could be a long match.
I saw Pliskova win. That was a tough one for her. She did have an issue with her arm. They said she took some anti-inflammatories during the match. That Chinese girl played very well. But Pliskova kept it together and got the win.
I am worried about Dolgo because he’s got a funky game and doesn’t give his opponent rhythm. When he gets hot then he can be dangerous. I know he smoked Troicki, but Rafa is not Troicki!
The only reason I am concerned about Rafa meeting Dolgo in the next match. Is because Rafa isn’t playing well now. He’s not confident. So that one could be tricky.
Nny I am worried because Rafa’s game is too erratic atm.. And when dolgo is on he can really rip the ball from anywhere..
Glad Moya is there and hoping that makes the difference if he does get nervous…
Yes I am with you regarding Dolgo. Normally I would not be concerned about Dolgo, but he is so unorthodox and funky that he could throw off a Rafa who is nervous still or not that confident. He’s unpredictable.
But I am hoping that Rafa will have settled down after coming from behind to win his previous match.
Already in this match Rafa is standing much closer to the baseline to return serve.
Yes, I’m excited, happy, thrilled! I like Garbine and she seemed like the right winner pick. But Yay Petra! Petra played fantastic — her forehand, backhand, court coverage, serve…she looked like the old Petra Champion! And I hope she wins the whole thing but I don’t know if she can replicate that performance vs Venus. After all Petra has endured this year, it was just wonderful to see her happy and playing so great π My bracket can go to heck LOL
Couldn’t get on site because of the hackers rc!and computer still not working so I can’t see any tennis!!
Utterly delighted for petra but a bit sad for garbine…
Very nervous about this match with dolgo as you know..
Oh and I am really pleased karolina won.. Hope she picks her game up now…
Well, I’m a bit cheesed off because I can’t watch Goffin v. Rublev. But I guess I’ll settle for Rafa v Dolgo hahahaha
Sorry you can’t see any tennis and you are not here with me to watch!
Petra, Simona, and Aga before all else for me. There’s only 2 WTA players I don’t like and only one is still playing thanks to brilliant Sevastova π
Yes sorry we can’t watch together rc!! Wouldn’t that be fun!
Yeah I knew you would be overjoyed that shrieky lost! Hope coco goes out ASAP!
Vamos petra! Buzz off coco!
Yes it would….would like to have you and my entire bracket groups right here watching and partying with me!! Special guest: the Queen Mira Andi!!!
OH yeah…I’m pleading for Lucie to beat Coco right now!
in the same Rolex Cellini Replica style as the team replica watches. I find the engraving far more satisfying, but would have liked to see a bit more depth to it. There is a little more branding on the PRC200. Firstly, Burberry handbags the 6 o‘―clock sub-dial sports a basketball image in grey. Additionally, the pushers are edged with red (top) and blue (bottom), Breitling Replica Watches UK which is, to me, the coolest thing.
