Yes....Novak isn't playing it but Rafa is. Novak is playing in Vienna next week and I don't think he wants to play 3 tournaments in a row.

 

What happened to all the lower-ranked players that the ITF and ATP claimed were supposed to benefit financially from the resumption of the Tour? I don't see any of those guys playing.

Georges is a pleasant player, who I think maximized her game to the best of her ability. Towards the end of her career is when, I think, she played some of her best tennis in her career so while I was mildly surprised at the timing, I can understand that she may have wrung all that she had in her and may be tapped out as a result.

Julia Goerges is retiring.

 

 

 

Wow!  Goerges seemed to still have quite a bit left in the tank.  

 

The links won't open.  Did she say why?

May as well given Thiem a bye.

Given Kei’s recent level, I agree. In general, that’s a solid draw.


I haven’t seen Sabalenka in Ostrava, but to beat Jen Brady in straights on a hard court? Maybe she’s righting the ship? Of course, I didn’t see Jen’s level.


Pouille has COVID:

I'm still wondering why Thiem is even playing Vienna. I would've told him to skip it and get ready for Paris indoors. That said the field is stack. Only Rafa is missing.
