This week is the last week before we turn all our attention to USA (Indian Wells and Miami) for most of March. For this week we have five tournaments including Acapulco which has a very strong field on the men's side.
These threads are weekly threads with just tennis talk: match talk, past, current or upcoming 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.

If you had to rank the ATP players based off their peak level of play, Querrey would be near the top.

I can sense the "This Event has finished" crew itching to display the message instead of showing us the ceremony for Barty's first title.

and maybe there won't be a ceremony now either with doubles still to come
Report edy March 5, 2017 12:36 PM GMT
If Barty stops missing so many returns, she'll win titles where she has tougher opposition than career journeywomen too. Otherwise has the tools for some Premiers at least.
Report edy March 5, 2017 12:36 PM GMT
Excited to see her on clay too. If she can move on the dirt, her heavy game looks decently suited to it.
