No team competition nonsense this week (edy, that's good news right?) so there will be men's and women's tennis all week long.
These threads are weekly threads with just tennis talk: match talk, current events in tennis etc. Spamming (including muggy politics talk) and general sports talk can be done elsewhere such as the usual megathreads, current one is called Spam/OT thread.

Woz gets a rough schedule. All that rain last week backed up the schedule so she played what 4 matches in 3 days? Then starts tomorrow playing 6 matches in 6 days if she wants to win the title.

Albeit there's not much travel, but the conditions are pretty different in terms of court speed.

I wonder if there ever was a male tennis tournament winner from Georgia before. Gabashvili was born in Georgia but he's been competing under the Russian flag his whole career.

There was a female tennis star from Georgia in the past, Leila Meskhi. She was ranked #12 in 1991 and won 5 tournaments in her career, as well as bronze medal at the 1992 Olympics.

definitely signs of that. blake did come in though didn't he?

harrison moves well and was invading the line judges' personal space in most rallies, all basi had to do was look to constantly move forward, instead, he just tried to hit it harder.

I'd say he was more like a sh1t "sh1t wawrinka" (pre 2012) trying to win every point from the back.
