WTA Sydney has a good field as always, but aside from that this is your typical week before a Slam where journeyman and women get a chance to shine.
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 It's time for S/OT 6.

Bojana Jovanovski is meant to be back in St. Petersburg qualies.

She famously beat Azarenka at Wimbledon and Wozniacki at RG before her body couldn't handle the tour anymore.

There might also have been an incident where maybe, just maybe, she went to the wrong city for a tournament once.
Report edy January 10, 2018 4:13 AM GMT
Remember when years ago there was a big debate about the WTA encouraging youngsters to not be not quite so loud? Now we have rising star Sabalenka as maybe the loudest player ever.

What is it?
It's the draw for the opening grand slam of the season, the Australian Open 2018.

When is it?
Well, traditionally the draw is made on the Friday before the tournament begins but this year they have brought it forward by 24 hours which means it will take place on Thursday, January 11.

What time will it be in the UK?
It will be at the convenient time of 8am.

Why have they brought it forward by a day?
This year they are televising the draw and is open to fans to attend. It will take place on the Margaret Court Arena with Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley keen to push the tournament in new ways.

wonder if this will lead to more or less muggery.
