The Tennis Thread

Recommended Posts

You know, interest in this year’s Indian Wells feels muted, even with media darlings Fedal playing well. I guess the matches haven’t been that scintillating, aside from (I heard) one-offs like Serena/Vika or Monfils’s demolition of Kohlschreiber. And I suppose the resurrection of Bencic isn’t resonating that widely.

Serena/Vika was the match of the tourney, closely followed by Vee/Petra.  I'm still watching (and happy Mrs Roboto is out) but my sense of urgency is now gone.  I will say that I'm enjoying Bencic's comeback too.

Indian Wells has always been trash.  I didn't miss it when Venus and Serena used to skip it and I wouldn't mind if they skipped it again.

The management at IW don't clean their facilities properly, sickening players, their courts are godawful slow and what in the ever-loving hell happened in Elina Svitolina's hotel room last night/early morning??!

A good thread about Novak’s elbow issues even at his 2015-16 peak, while a group of several dumb, amnesiac, narrative-pushing, Fedal-worshipping tennis journalists seemed to imply it came out of nowhere and/or downplayed it in a way they’d never do with other players:

Rafa pulled out as expected and won’t play until Monte Carlo. Roger through to final.

 

Words cannot describe how pissed off I am about this.  But I knew something was up when he won his match with 2 tie breaks.  May as well pull out than be humiliated by Fed again. 

 

Ugh!  I postponed picking up my new car for this match!
