Dirt season continues this week with the first non mug event of the season on the surface. No WTA main tour during the week, but the weekend has Fed Cup semifinals.
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 2.

Does Myskina even get to make the decisions? I always gathered she was just installed as a puppet that Tarpishev pulls the strings of.

she will be defending 60 pts from Prague next week, and she is currently 47 pts away from #100. 6 players ranked between 90 and 100 will play next week and some will most likely leap over Camila.

Report aaronh April 23, 2017 11:17 PM BST
Tennis legend Ilie Nastase last night said he was not sorry at his foul-mouthed “f***ing b****s” bust-up with British women tennis stars.

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Mirror he said: “I don’t regret it and they can send me to prison if they want - I don’t care.”

He admitted abusing the British women and said: “I’m invited to Wimbledon every year by the All England club - it’s a special day.

“The probably won’t invite me this year but I don’t care really.

“I was just trying to promote the interest of my girl.

“The English player just stormed off without even asking permission to leave the court and I admit that’s when I called her a bitch.

“She kept trying to keep the crowd quiet - but it’s not an opera it’s a game.

“These people want to make a tennis match like a silent movie.

“I don’t need this bullsh*t. I’m 70 years old. I don’t even get paid for being team captain.

“I don’t’ give a sh*t if they fine me or don’t let me sit in the captain’s chair.

“Remember I was world number one if you throw someone out who was a world number one - it’s not good for tennis.”

Referring to his comments about Serena Williams pregnancy he said “I don’t know what all the fuss is about.”
