i got barty around 1.7, so it's not that short imo.  barty being more solid and consistent is the key thing in that thinking.

naomi is getting better at patience and constructing points, but i'm struggling to describe he defence much beyond runniing to where the ball is going.  she's def one of the future stars in my mind, she has good results but her mentality comes into question quite often and that should get better with experience.

Thanks for a good tennis opinion nit..used to like  coming on here and reading opinions on players and match ups..find it a chore now to wade through 6000 post threads much about nothing relevant..
Your opinion taken on board and ive gone from a backer of naomi to a watching brief today

the guys on the tennis megathread have been talking to each other for years so you can't expect it to be on topic the whole time. i don't use the forum much apart from january when it's tennis all night, but having that freeform conversation running through the night is good.

wasn't sure about the coco start price but maybe that was the move in this match.

good post, the clique need dismantling for the community to thrive again, atm they are impenetrable, I've yet to decipher what any of them are saying.

if the clique dismantled, this phorum would be even more dead than it is. We keep our cliqueing in the spam thread anyway. Other threads, in particular the tennis talk threads are about tennis for most parts. You rarely see cliquers post non-tennis stuff in the tennis threads.

If the people like yourself came on here more to contribute in tennis discussions instead of just lurking and then only posting to complain about how dead the forum is that might help

That is also true.
For years, the main complaint, mainly by people not contributing anything, about the megathreads was that were was too much non-tennis discussion going on in the megathreads and that made it hard to follow the tennis discussion. Fair enough, they had a point so tennis talk threads were created so that tennis discussion could be kept there and other discussion be kept in Spam/OT threads.

Propaganda talk above imo.

i preffered the combined megathread.

Can't win really, the combined mega thread was unpopular with many too. Also with the big events coming up where the forum is generally more popular it would be even more messy than normal when World Cup is going on at same time. People go generally stay on topic in tennis talk, but not like I can actually control everyone.
