Women's tennis is currently in an absolute state.

When you've got a mickey mouse like Swiatek winning multiple slams in a year there needs to be some sort of inquiry as to why the WTA is so lacking in depth.

Even Serena put out the no.2 ffs!

Ash Barty needs to come out of retirement.

Swiatek is an average player up against mental midgets.

Jabber 5-4 up in the TB & serving blows the next 3 points. Cry
Report mesmerised September 11, 2022 12:08 AM BST
Swiatek is not average, players just struggle to deal with her extreme gripped-forehand shots, a fully tuned in Osaka would be the best bet on Hard but she is away with the fairies most of the time.
Report Wesdag September 11, 2022 12:30 AM BST
Average historically.

The current crop of players are carp.

As I mentioned above, the no.2 in the world got put out by an unfit woman nearly 41.
Report mesmerised September 11, 2022 12:59 AM BST
Kontaveit obviously has no business being Number 2, she's dining out on a load of indoor points but Swiatek is a very good player that would have given the likes of Sharapova a run for her money and Henin, but Peak Serena no chance of grass or hard, think Iga would win on clay though, it's a shame they never met regardless. When her career is over she'll probably be mentioned in the same breadth as Henin and Seles because of number at least.

The current tour are largely a much of a muchness, a lot of similarly matched players in terms of talent/ceiling, Halep is probably past her best so unless Osaka gets her act together, Iga will be fave for Australia and will win it and the French. There is Andreescu, if she gets back to her full form she can push Swiatek as well, but 100% fit Iga is too good for everyone atm. Who else can stop her.
Report Journeyman September 11, 2022 10:41 AM BST
Swiatek is the Leyton Hewitt of the WTA.

A rickety wooden bridge between eras. Hewitt was the tiny bit of superglue between the Sampras era and the Fed era and Iga can play that role for now. There are better options for longevity round the corner. Bencic should be challenging at the moment but there's something missing there, could end up as the most potent female player to not even get to a final. The biggest letdown though was Garcia in the semi finals. Hard to think of a recent example of a hotter form player putting in such a limp effort.

It's platinum forum membership. If someone has proven themselves for a very long time to be of utmost maturity and able to handle the responsibility that comes with it, betfair disables the filter for bad words for you. Mishit/mishits are not considered bad words themselves, but the forum censorship misbehaves because what comes after mi is a bad word if it stood alone (if the exclamation mark that you tried is put in that part of the word it would also defeat the filter)

sidelining Novak has allowed Carlos to win his first slam, but you have to start somewhere. God we can't have many more of these types of finals, how has it come to this when Ruud is making two slam finals in a year. Level's dropped so much since the big 4 were ruling the roost.

I don't like guessing numbers on slams but it's safer to do in men's tennis because of best of 5 rather than in women's best of 3, he can play on every surface.

Because clay is the true test.

Serve botting doesn't work there, an all-round game is required.

I learned Spanish at school for 5 years, the problem is Spaniards pronounce every syllable in their words so when they speak it sounds like they are saying so much more than what they actually are and in turn, sounds like they're talking at 100 miles an hour, whereas in English we shorted words a lot. I can read Spanish fluently, I can only understand the slower speakers, the faster speakers I have to second guess and take pot shots at what they're saying.
