https://www.cbssports.com/tennis/news/billie-jean-king-says-partnership-between-wta-saudi-arabia-would-be-beneficial-for-both-sides/
"I'm sure they [the tours] will [go to Saudi Arabia]. I think they will," King said. "There's a lot of money, which is very important to keep having money to help the players, but also help run the WTA, run the ATP and all that."
King also believes that a partnership between the WTA and Saudi Arabia could help advance women's rights in the Middle East. King wants to see more equality between men and women in Saudi Arabia, and she said "engaging" with the leaders of the country would help bring about that change.
"I'm a huge believer in engagement," King said. "I don't really think you can change unless you engage. That's just me personally, I'm not speaking for anyone else here. I'm a big believer in engaging, so I don't know what that really means in the end, but just meeting people."


BJK now.

What's the views on Alcaraz v Medvedev semi here?

I was initially drawn to finding value in Med, but couldn't convince myself and felt everything was pointing to a fairly simple win for Carlos. So had a small one on him around 1.28 in the end. The match up and recent form seem to have him clear to me, and if Med had won a bit less easily against Rublev I think Carlos would be even shorter than this.

I'm constantly looking for reasons to oppose this flipping '15 slams+' prediction the phorum keeps trotting out on Carlos. But the way he carved through the eyecatchingly potent Arnaldi and the hot form player of the tournament (Zverev) is weakening my resistance.
I don't see him losing tonight. There's something not quite human about him.
Report SamuelMertensBertens September 8, 2023 5:26 PM BST
Given how good Medvedev is, you'd think he'd be a threat against Carlos, but given the way Carlos obliterated him last time they played, it's hard to see Medvedev do much today.

Rafa/Novak has the record for most consecutive Slam finals (4), but it feels like Carlos/Novak could match or exceed it. Only at 1 at the moment, but 2 feels very likely. Would have been 3 if they hadn't been on opposite sides of the draw at Roland Garros. (To add to that, Carlos didn't play AO this year and Novak didn't play USO last year).
