It's almost Aussie Open time, but first there are some more tournaments to be played. The big guns in men's tennis are sitting out this week, WTA Adelaide has a good field with World No 1 Ash Bartymite leading the charge and it will be interesting to see who will be this year's breakout star by doing well in Hobart.

Can you play tennis wearing an air mask? Would it be against clothing regulation at other Slams than Wimbledon? Or would it mess up your breathing while doing something as physical as playing tennis?
Report nofx January 14, 2020 3:54 PM GMT
not without oxygen I suppose. doubt those face masks are for prolonged and extraneous use

plus you breathe your own exhumes and at some point the co2 in your lungs reaches toxic levels?

Paire to umpire (after Paire thought opponent's ball was out and umpire didn't overrule): "IT WAS OUT. CAN YOU DO YOUR JOB?"
Umpire: "Don't shout. It doesn't help. We can talk, but like this, in a normal voice".
Paire: "Please, can you do your job?"
Crowd: "Hahaha"

Oh my. Lorenzi had 0-40 on Rosol's serve at 5 all in the third, but from that point he only won one more point in the match. Rosol held and broke to 15. 6-7, 7-6, 7-5 Rosol.

Lorenzi? More like Lolrenzi Laugh

People used to make those kind of shirts back in the day as "Arbeitsbeschaffungsmaßnahme". It was a programme to give long-term unemployed folks anything at all to do.

We had that as an activity for the kids at Summer Camp in America 20 years ago.
