Did anyone catch his Instagram clip about relocating his meditative pre-work ritual to the park after a man in a Speedo tried to befriend him at the sauna? I gave him a little shit in the comments, replying that he's quite straight if he doesn't realize friendly almost-naked men are also at the park. He replied good-naturedly but claimed to be clueless about such activities.

by Anonymousreply 41January 27, 2024 8:25 AM

Sabalenka has a better serve, hits harder and a better forehand. Zheng better movement and better mental strength but she had three setters against three players in the tournament (and they were not strong players) while Sabalenka has not dropped a set plus has played seeds. A lot depends on how Sabalenka plays and whether she chokes.

I just thought of another option - Sinner's brother looks like alternatively he could have Italian genes - the olive skin tone and dark hair - from a parent (both of Sinner's parents are ethnically German). So possibly he is a child from a previous relationship before Sinner's parents got together.

God. Med destroyed him in that first set. I had a feeling.

First, Med has played in five finals against Rafa and Novak each time. He finally is free of both. And is motivated to finally win his second.

Second, Sinner just took out Goliath and is in his first slam. A letdown was almost inevitable.

I like both so don't care who ends up winning. But I'm not surprised by this result so far.

R142, Mmoh is one of the players I follow intently, not because I think he has high prospects, but I guess more because he's my sometimes pretend boyfriend.

Actually, there are several players I follow here and there in the top 300 just so I can see their progress, if any. Of course, I think they have to be attractive to me in some way--I'm not THAT much of a tennis nerd. Since last summer's US OPEN qualifying, for example, I watched blond hunk Aiden Mayo progress to the final round. I started to follow him and watched him progress into the fall to the point of being a leading contender for the AO American wildcard spot. He derailed fast. I think he's lost about six or seven straight matches going back to last year.

His last matches though are kind of ugly, not his tight shirt clinging to him, but rather his loud, distracting commentary, sometimes spiced with a racket toss or break. At his current rate, I might start focusing on other players in that range.

I remember that our beloved and unshakable Genie, if you consider her hand is unshakable for the opponent, because she doesn't believe in shaking her opponent's hand, let alone say her name in pressers, is turning 30 in a couple of weeks. And her incredible successive runs at the Aus Open, RG and Wimbledon happened just 10 years ago.

I know a lot of you under the guise of Chrissie (which I hope will recover swiftly from her ovary cancer setback) would have loved to pencil her into many other slam finals, but it's not like she still plays tennis. She switched to pickleball and my understanding is that she has yet to win a single match. Oh the Eugenity!!! And when will daddy finally see his money back? Worst investment of his career...

"Felix finally learned to close after losing his first nine finals, then taking the next five in '22 and '23. But he's wobbled for the last eighteen months or so. I wonder what's caused the doldrums."

He's definitely gotten better and poor closing doesn't rear it's head as much with FAA, but I wouldn't say he's "cured." It's like when Novotna would get tight and choke some big matches. She finally wins Wimbledon and people declare that she's over it, but later that same year, she choked her semi vs. Hingis at the USO.

It's hard to gauge how good FAA is doing right now. After his slump last year, he miraculously rebounds and wins a tournament at the end of last season, but then he didn't do anything at the AO. Will be interesting to see if he can do something "big" this year - deep Slam and/or Masters run(s), even just winning more 500s.

Much effort.

by Anonymousreply 338February 12, 2024 2:14 AM

The rankings are mostly about how players have done over the last year so if players continue their slumps, the points will soon come off.

For example, Muchova in the last year: SF in the US Open, Final in Cincinnati, Final of Roland Garros, QF of Indian Wells, QF of Dubai. She's a good player, just prone to injury and doesn't play a lot of tournaments.

by Anonymousreply 339February 12, 2024 2:16 AM

No, I don't find it confusing. Because of how the ranking system works, there can be fairly big disparities in ranking vs. the current form of a player. Certainly there's many instances where ranking and form match, but it's not unusual for them not to.

Muchova has huge points from her French Open final and US Open semi final in 2023. Those points haven't come off yet.

Chris Eubanks after winning Mallorca and then making the Wimbledon quarterfinals was right around 30. He's essentially done nothing since (a few first round wins here and there), yet he's still around 35. His high ranking (for him) was largely built on Mallorca and Wimbledon and his Miami QF last year. And none of those points have come off.

"The AO is considering switching the women's and men's final days - the reasoning is that men's matches go on for longer and people have to work the next day. Though, wouldn't that mean the men get less resting time before the final?"

If the schedule stayed the same, yes. But they could alter the overall tournament schedule. For example, they now start on Sunday. Generally, they play one half of the draw (for men and women) one day, followed by the other half the next day for most of the tournament - to the best of their ability; weather can fuck it up. At some point, the two halves get unequal rest - usually between the QFs and SFs - where players from one half will get two days rest before the SF, the other half only one day.

They could just have the first Sunday be all men. I don't think they could get through all 64 matches, but combined with the second day of play, they could, in theory, get through the men's first round. And from there they could probably get it so that they're on the current women's schedule so that they'd play the men's semis on Thursday of the second week, followed by the final on Saturday.

The "people back to work" thing wouldn't be as big of a deal if they played a daytime final. But, they've moved it to night for a number of years; I assume for better ratings.

One extra note to my AO scheduling Ted Talk above. They play the first round over three days now. So, it's not one half of the draw on Sunday and then the other half on Monday and then on to the second round for everyone on Tuesday. Tuesday can have some second round matches, but they're still also finishing the first round. By adding the first Sunday, it allows more breathing room in the schedule.

And there's that how the ITIA said its tribunal accepted Halep’s argument she had taken a contaminated supplement, but found the amounts she had ingested did not explain the concentration of Roxadustat in her urine sample provided at the US Open on 29 August 2022.

She's a cunt for doing this to this Canadian company to try to manage her PR for people who don't pay attention.

Sharapova "fought" her suspension a little, but I'm not sure she ever denied taking the substance; rather she was angling for a shorter suspension. Anyway, Sharapova's substance was actually legal for most of her career, but then went on the banned substances list near the end of her career. She didn't accomplish anything of note during the time it was banned. And once she exhausted the appeals process she just did the suspension and didn't say much about it during that time - if I'm remembering correctly.

I'd assume there's no protected ranking for bans. He's not even listed on ATP Live rankings, so he has zero points. So he'd need wildcards even into Challengers (if not challengers qualifying). Will any ATP tour events throw him a wild card into the main draw or qualifying. Is he going to play Futures?

I think Sinner's nailed on to take the no. 1 spot within the next 12 months. NoVaxxx focus will be on the Olympics and I expect he'll play even fewer tournaments than usual this year. Unless Alcaraz can turn things round quickly he'll start to slide down as he has a lot of ranking points to defend in the first half of this year.

Medvedev is looking strong, but h;'s already dropped behind Sinner. No-one else on the horizon is going to challenge immediately for the Top 4 spots.

They all complain about the length of the tour yet they fill every free week with a money grabbing exhibition. Soon, instead of GS we'll be comparing ticket sales to determine who's best.

Rafa doesn't play Wimbledon but plays with Roger. He doesn't play USOpen, or something, flies all over SA with Ruud. Now he's in Vegas and has plans with the Saudi's, with the others. And zero plans to stay home with his wife.

by Anonymousreply 565February 21, 2024 8:38 PM

Thinking more about Mouratoglou, I am guessing that his business model is to offer top players special services in exchange for his being their mentor or coach. He always makes sure to wear a shirt with his academy's logo on it and to appear in their boxes. That then impresses people who buy his tennis camps and other services.

Also I just found out that supposedly he dated Serena? That's a bit of a red flag because I've read books about tennis that talk about how some coaches try to get players emotionally/sexually attached to them so that they get to keep their position.

^^^ it's ugly and unseemly and reflects badly on him and the sport

this is a guy who has made $135 million in prize money ALONE and multiples of that from endorsements

Right, R577. It's not like he's grifting poor and working families. It's the same sort of people who climb Everest for clout - they want to show off their lesson or their kid's lesson to other people in their crowd. And, there's probably some rich genuine Rafa superfans too.

Here's another story: some journalists investigated On running shoes and found that for the model called "The Roger Advantage", co-created with tennis star Roger Federer, On pays $20.50 to the manufacturers in Vietnam, and sells them online for $218 which is a lot higher a profit margin than for companies like Adidas.

But if people will pay it when there are lots of cheaper alternatives out there...

Also, Patrick Mouratoglou charges $7,500 for a private lesson. I'm not even kidding.

R581, but that price includes “supplements.”

Rafa's $150k is targeted at the ridiculously wealthy-never-had-to-think-about-money crowd. Think Saudi royals, billionaire offspring, and the like.

The super rich are the only ones who are likely to take up Rafa on as personal trainer.

Djere and Lajovic are playing each other in a hot and steamy Los Cabos.

Both are absolutely drenched in sweat. Clothing clinging to their bodies - nothing left to the imagination.

It's a sight for sore eyes.

*Soz. They're in Rio not Los Cabos!
