I'm too tired to think about the ramifications of all this other than to know that the first word that comes to mind is clusterf*ck.

 

This is ridiculous....750 points? Awful......its not a major or below that...and it gets that many points? absurd

There are a bunch of withdrawals this week, for some reason.  It seems as if the draw in some tournaments were put out too late for many players and some are opting out, citing various reasons.

Points seem to be the least of this ATP Cup's problems.  The fact that they are trying to stage on event in three separate cities, likely displacing WTA events is a big concern.  

 

The points seem to be an attempt to lure more players to this event, especially seeing as one complaint that had arisen over the years was tournaments (e.g. Davis Cup) that had stopped awarding points.  Who even knows if this will work? 

The clusterf*ck to the already scrambled schedule, as well as how it affects a whole other tour (WTA) has to be a concern.

Lol...at the score....didn't she do this last year in Australia?

 

That match against Alexandrovna was the first match she's won in Australia since 2015!

 

 

LOL.  Sachia's Instagram is always good for some good laughs.:lol:

There’s a paywall for this:

 

 

Vahaly revealed to The Telegraph last August that a handful of professional players, and around 30 at junior and college level, have told him privately that they are gay, but have opted against going public. Vahaly is sure there are many more, and wants to create as welcoming and understanding environment as possible to help them come out should they want to. They are, he believes, "scared" of revealing their true selves to the wider world. 

 

Hmmmmm...wonder who they are....and JG is probably one of the homophobes...wouldn't surprise me.
