Why is the WTA website way better than the ATP one? ATP website is very clunky and hard to navigate, at least for mobile users


ExcuseYou-What

Considering where Shapo was a few months ago, this was a very high-quality performance. Munar isn't easy to put away in general. Shapo just needs to stick with Youzhny right now and stop being spontaneous.


TallThing6233

Vintage Shapo, what a point.


devioustrevor

If I was to bet all my money in my current online book on Shapovalov over Jaume Munar, should I feel confident today?


kashbets

Hammer him Vasek won earlier keep the Canadian magic going O’Canada Our home and native land


jack2047

Damn Rafa really should’ve won that 07 Wimbledon final. So young and challenging Federer on his best surface. What a player


Denny_Hayes

google is no longer giving me the schedules automatically when I google players or tournaments, anybody else has this problem?


icecreamwithketchup

Use [https://live-tennis.eu/en/atp-schedule](https://live-tennis.eu/en/atp-schedule) instead


Complex_Rhubarb_3411

With the amount of tournaments Ruud plays per year (he’s playing the Korean open right after laver cup), I think he’s lucky he hasn’t had any serious injuries


treyfiddy

Planning to watch Seoul Open live this weekend. pretty psyched that there's plenty of big names coming!


Denny_Hayes

He played a single match in the laver cup

FYI: ESPN2 is replaying old Federer matches tonight.


Nabucodonosor89

Czech/WTA Next Gen in action this week: Linda Noskova (17) is playing WTA 250 Talinn (indoor hard). She won 3 matches already (coming from the qualies). Sara Bejlek (16) is playing W25 Santa Margherita di Pula (clay). Brenda Fruhvirtova (15) is playing W60 San Sebastian (clay).


kashbets

Noskova beats Bia


Nabucodonosor89

Victoria Jimenez Kasintseva (17) from Andorra is playing W60 San Sebastian as well. She made QF last week in Seoul (WTA).

Federer follows Nole on Instagram now 😃


thcm123

Also started following Ellie Goulding. I like her but woof - what an awkward show.


BelgianBond

And that settles that non-story.


DecimatedByCats

A tough read in the NY Post about Del Potro being unable to accept life without tennis. He also says he can't climb stairs without pain. Oof.


iconisanimi

Oh, Delpo 💔 I can’t imagine the thing with his dad helps, either.


Unaatennista

Fognini’s matches are always weird


jchristpriv

Classic 30-0 to losing the match. Oh Fogna man


BelgianBond

*Fogna* indeed. He's lost a lot of matches in the last year so I'm not surprised he's getting nervous in the closing stages.


knickgooner10

Fognini is so nonchalant lol


jchristpriv

So casual with the drop, I'm sure the word Sprezzatura was invented for Fabio. 2 crazy drops in a row


blonde_dolphin

Looking to buy tickets to the WTA finals and I’m wondering if anyone knows how many matches you get to watch per session, specially the night session? First weekend


jchristpriv

Vukic can't buy a break


jchristpriv

Fuck sake Fabio


jchristpriv

Daiiii Fogna


[deleted]

Curious what the popular sentiment is on this topic: Do you think Emma will finish the year in the top 50?


tigrefacile

She’s going to make semis in OSTRAVA!!! and then win the spooky slam. Should put her up around #40.


Consistent-Zebra9564

No chance! She is to fragile... she should take a break, maybe play 1-2 tournaments and then come back stronger next season.


The_Entheogenist

She has few points to defend, so she could certainly move into the top 50.


jchristpriv

Last week was the best she's played since US 21, if she keeps that level up, why not? But depends on if she recovers


icecreamwithketchup

SST Trevisan doing the tennis classic of having a grueling back and forth 1st set that lasts over an hour and following it up with a bagel


jchristpriv

6 set points, no conversion. Oh Fogna. Although Vukic seems to have one of the slowest and worst backhands I've seen so hopefully be able to punish it this second set


White_Nothing

SST/Trevisan match sounds like two old ladies arguing.


monsieurartois

Blew a 5-1 lead in the 3rd, dealt with strange umpiring, a late resurgence from Wang, and even the lights going out at one point, but Kontaveit manages the home win. Hail the Queen of Indoors!


InfantilePillock

Anett probably feeling the pressure of playing at home. She looks so relieved in the interview. One of my favourite players, she's hasn't had a great year but I hope she wins this one. It is indoors after all :)


Kordas

And she really needs the points considering how much she is dropping in the next month. She still has chances to qualify for the Finals, but will need to play really well.


mertz97

Fognini faced break points in 5/6 games and was broken only once


jchristpriv

Servebot


Kordas

Anyway, it was a really high quality match and it's great to see a packed crowd for Anett.


ExcuseYou-What

lmao JM Gambill was simply tearing into the umpire, Kelly Thomson hopefully Xiyu played Anett into form because this was kinda hell (i mean absolutely a great match with great hitting, but also still hell)


obi_kennawobi

Surprisingly I can't understand a word estonian.


clearlyPisces

I have to say I really enjoyed an interview in Estonian😁


White_Nothing

Love the fight from Wang. Could have easily just given up at 1-5, but just kept fighting and going for her shots. Really impressive.


meimaj

Anett!!!! Love seeing her get through this match and have such a big smile at the end. Hope she goes all the way!


Kordas

What the fuck was this match point? Wang landed a ball near the baseline, line umpire called "out", umpire did the correction and they just kept playing? Never seen that before. Correction has always resulted in the point being stopped afaik. This umpire made some really strange calls.


OwenRey

Fantastic fantastic match


shegotofftheplane

Such a high quality match, great win from Anett


WeakDuck8

what a STRANGE umpire for the Wang-Kontaveit match. thrilled for Anett, but what a match by Wang.


LeagueofLagginz

I wasn't watching. What was strange about the umpire?


aweap

Did a correction mid point after a linesman called the ball out and the rally continued instead of being replayed.


Kordas

During match point at 5-2, Anett faulted on 1st serve and as she was preparing for the 2nd, lights in the arena went out for like 5 seconds, then they came back. Usually the umpire would give the first serve back because of the disturbance, but she didn't. Then sometime later on the final matchpoint Wang landed a ball near the baseline, line umpire called out, but the umpire corrected that ball was good. Usually in case like this, point is stopped and replayed, but they just kept playing for some reason.


NicholeTheOtter

Kontaveit really needed that win. Would have been a huge choke had she lost that.


LeagueofLagginz

Huh, that is odd. At least Anett didn't get robbed the match.


Condomonium

Where can I watch the Federer/Nadal vs Sock/Tiafoe match? I'm in the US


White_Nothing

SST wins the first set in 89 minutes lol.


mertz97

Fognini offering himself to Vukic but Vukic saying no thanks I'll choke


cbdgf

I really hate this whole coaching thing being allowed. Even though it will benefit some players I like


WeakDuck8

Anett what is HAPPENING


OwenRey

WOW what a comeback


cbdgf

What a furious comeback by Wang. She gonna win this thing


White_Nothing

I think when the lights went out, Wang left the court and was replaced by Djokovic.


White_Nothing

Goddamn Wang flipped a switch. Went from hitting unforced errors to lights out winners.


shegotofftheplane

Quite literally, lights out winners


manga_be

If you had to bet your life on it, who would you pick to win more career slams: 1. Alcaraz, or 2. Ruud, Tsitsipas, Auger-Aliassime, and Tiafoe, combined?


Classics22

Ooh tough. I think ruud gets 1, Stef 2 or 3, and Tiafoe 0. Felix is tough, wouldn’t be shocked if he won 3 wouldn’t be shocked if he won 0. Alcaraz I’m guessing like 8ish. So I guess i’m going alcaraz


shegotofftheplane

Alcaraz. I don’t think FAA or Tiafoe will ever win a slam. Ruud and Tsitsipas can squeeze in RG after Nadal and Djokovic are gone


Kordas

What a terrible decision from the umpire not to give Kontaveit first serve back after the light went out.


[deleted]

I mean didn't the lights go out after the serve had been out? I'll need to watch the replay but from what I saw it would be unfair to Wang to give Annette the first serve there.


Kordas

They did, but usually in tennis when there's such a big distraction between serves, the umpire just decides that the whole point should be replayed and the server gets the 1st serve. It's up to interpretation what constitutes a significant distraction, but imo the lights going out for a few seconds between serves is enough to seriously unsettle the server, so she should have gotten the 1st serve back.


WeakDuck8

yeah the way Anett looked at her like...are you going to give me a 1st serve again? and the judge kind of paused and then was like...second serve. was very odd.


White_Nothing

Lighting person at Tallinn getting fired lol


clearlyPisces

Omg Anett I'm having a heart attack over here!!!


shegotofftheplane

Lights just went out in Tallinn on match point


clearlyPisces

Russian sabotage


shegotofftheplane

Great crowd at Tallinn!


aweap

I didn't notice it but looks like Pospisil just won his first main tour match since February beating 8th seed Griekspoor as a lucky loser in Tel Aviv!


Miss_Medussa

Tommy Paul


knickgooner10

Kontaveit is the reason why the WTA are too scared to have an indoor hard court slam


HardTacoKit

Why is the ATP “too scared” to have an indoor hard court slam?


knickgooner10

Paire


JoeshpMR

Winning 23 of 24 points is just mean.


[deleted]

If Annette keeps this up her home crowd is gonna turn against her for bullying.


[deleted]

It's gotta be so much pressure to perform when playing in a tournament that literally exists because of you. Hope Annette and Ons soon can live up to it.


[deleted]

Bro Annette took some Popeye's spinach a few games ago or something. She's completely taken the racquet out of Wang's hands.


slayer_of_potatoes

No wonder she's winning if she's taken Wang's racquet and isn't giving it back.


clearlyPisces

Yeah, wiping the floor...


LovrenIsTheGOAT

People make a big deal about Med's H2H with Tsitsipas. But Stef is definitely better than him on clay and perhaps even on grass (there's a case). And Medvedev seems to be falling apart right now.


monsieurartois

Anett remembered that she's indoors. Blasting return winners and powering through her service games to take 2nd set 6-2.


White_Nothing

Glad to see Anett turning things around in the second set. It would be bad for her to lose in the first round in her home tournament.


clearlyPisces

I mean Anett must have planned to put on a longer show for the home crowd...😓😓 but Wang was playing well, of course


cbdgf

Kontaveit just went on an insane tear right there. Like 7 straight winners


shegotofftheplane

SST-Trevisan 35 min in, score’s 2-2 🙃


White_Nothing

When I saw this match up I thought to myself, damn that's gonna be a long match lol


throwawayanon1252

Come on griekspoor


kashbets

He’s had no answer for vaseks serve since the first set


CoaxHoax

Kontaveit is officially washed if she loses tn


Kahn-wald

Sorribes Tormo x Trevisan played three games and the match is already 34 minutes long. This will be a long one, just as expected 🤢


monsieurartois

Starting 2nd set with a break and a hold, pretty good recovery for Anett so far.


kashbets

Come on Vasek what a battle to get set 2 now let’s bring this W home


jarzyniowski

I have few more of [those pictures](https://www.reddit.com/r/tennis/comments/xpf42j/guess_the_tennis_players_part_2/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf) should I make another round?


knickgooner10

Yeah, it’s a fun challenge

Nastypav12

So many rightly focus on Queenwen but Xiyu is a huge talent; big serve and shots plus very focused during matches.


throwawayanon1252

What’s happening to Anett


throwawayanon1252

Come on Anett win on home soil


Efendiskander

Ugo Humbert wins a set in Sofia with 26 UE and a 42% 2nd serve won, surprising


MarbleEmperor

Anett looks radiant on home soil


monsieurartois

See her casual photos in Instagram, I can't get over how beautiful she is.


monsieurartois

Kontaveit is next up... On home turf, and we're indoors, baby!


clearlyPisces

Yes, finally Estonians can see her play live 🥰


aweap

Kontaveit has a surprisingly tough first round. Wang has beaten both Sakkari and Azarenka last couple of weeks and made semis in Washington and quarters at Granby before. Her match against Riske at the US Open was pretty epic I remember. Hopefully Kontaveit's had enough practice since battling Serena at the US Open.


monsieurartois

Vekic just won her match in Tallinn with 6 aces, 39 winners and 6 errors. Opponent was a local lower-level player, but still, nice to see Donna win once in a while.


browwnairbrowwneyes

couldn't agree anymore - it felt so relieving. seeing her get ousted in the first round of u.s open wasn't fun, even though it wasn't entirely surprising


aweap

SST vs Trevisan today in Parma is gonna be a 4-hr screaming fest, I can hear it already from my home ☺️


HOWDEHPARDNER

Anyone know where I can watch the Nadal & Federer Laver Cup doubles match? I am in Turkey currently but have access to a VPN. I got downvoted in the last thread for asking, thought I would just try again. (It isn't obvious from google, the results just tell me Eurosport is where to watch it live...)


Kahn-wald

If I had money and was into betting, I would put a big bet on Noskova against Bia, who looks tired and hasn't played in indoors for a year while Noskova finished 2021 with a 17-0 record in this surface.


aweap

What happened to Xinyu Wang? I remember there was so much chatter around her last year as the next big Chinese sensation, same way like Qinwen has all this hype right now...she's not gone beyond the second round anywhere this year.


Kahn-wald

She's 21 and having a sophomore slump year. I think Qinwen will have problems in 2023 as well. She's new and people will start to figure out her game. That's why so many youngsters or rising players come and go. That was her best performance in months, though.


Unaatennista

Why is the Tel Aviv open so empty?


Benno1977

It’s Rosh Hashanah…the Jewish New Year. Kind of strange they would have a tournament during the holiday.


Unaatennista

Oh that makes sense thanks so much for responding


muchaschicas

Congrats to Mayar Sherif!


icecreamwithketchup

Freed From Desire is still stuck in my head because of Laver Cup


Unaatennista

I wish I had the clip of Nole singing it lol


KappaGOD

hadad maria what u doing bby


kashbets

Thought I was dreaming when I saw 6-1


Sad_Consideration_49

Hoping Balkan besties cilic and djokovic meet up in tel Aviv finals.


slayer_of_potatoes

I'm hoping Thiem defies logic and beats them both.


fingerdumbed

I mean, with Thiem’s current form, I’m morbidly expecting a 6–1, 6–3 victory for Cilic or something like that.


slayer_of_potatoes

Logic would dictate that, yes. That's why I'm hoping he defies logic.


fingerdumbed

Logic dictates that anything could happen ;)


slayer_of_potatoes

Therefore to defy logic, Thiem must make nothing happen.


fingerdumbed

Hmm. Does nothing still count as an outcome? Does anything exclude nothing?


slayer_of_potatoes

In order to figure that out, I'd have to use logic. I will defy logic and not figure it out.


fingerdumbed

But you used logic to determine you needed logic to figure it out, thus failing to defy logic as your defying of logic is strictly logical.


slayer_of_potatoes

Damn, I guess Thiem will lose then.


besieged_mind

You can write a game-by-game script how Begu manages to win a set or match, despite maybe losing 4-0 or similar at the moment


slayer_of_potatoes

Ha, Karatsev gets broken for 3-5* and gets a point penalty so Etcheverry starts serving for the match at 15-0. Karatsev breaks serve for the first time in the match anyway.


jsnoodles

Man I bet he won so much money for that.


jbartlettcoys

And now it's 1 set all. Gotta love the tennis scoring system


Kahn-wald

Nishioka is now 6-0 against Daniel Evans.

They’re not brothers. Hyeon only has one older brother who no longer plays.


jannar24

God damn it Tim, had a set point on his own serve but then he put FH in the net and double faulted


knickgooner10

Kontaveit is to indoor courts as Nadal is to clay


xonthapuntx

Teichmann has got to be the least clutch player I’ve ever seen


Psychological_Bug676

The fact that Dan Evans is Yoshi’s pigeon gives me life


jannar24

The Tim van GOAThoven energy is gone :(


Chosen1gup

Evans 0-6 now against Nishioka


mertz97

Situation that just happened on Evans Nishioka is prime example why line judges need to get out of tennis. Break point perfect serve by Evans, easy volley winner but serve is called out, challenge its in but replaying the point and he lost that point and game


Ramiah73

Worst part is that it was well in (like atleast 75%)


[deleted]

The technology's just not affordable enough for these smaller tourneys. At least it's now at basically all masters+ events. Gone are the days of slams being decided by a bad call.


s0ngsforthedeaf

Except that's only on hard. Clay isn't interested. And Wimbledon is still wasting everyone's time with the challenge system.


[deleted]

Lol Teichmann is legit special in as a choker. Up 0-40 with 3 break points at 4-3, converts none. Up 15-40 at 5-4 and two set points, flubs the easy volley. Unless Siegemund commits three errors in a row she's not getting the set.


Kahn-wald

She won the match


xonthapuntx

Man she’s a clown how about this 2nd set being 5-2 up and it having to go to a tie break


binsonfiremiss

Had a very long day at work today. Came home, logged onto WTA TV only to see that Maria Sakkari's first round match against someone I'd never heard of at a clay 250 is THREE HOURS LONG 💀💀💀


jbartlettcoys

Surely Evans isn't really about to go 0-6 h2h vs Nishioka...one of the most shocking h2hs in recent memory if so


s0ngsforthedeaf

What happened to Zidansek? That French Open semi final seems miles away now. She's struggling to stay in the top 100 at the moment. Edit - having watched her match, she is extremely inconsistent, and her serve sucks. Work in progress but that progress seems to be taking a long time.


slayer_of_potatoes

It is miles away. It was in Paris and she's in Parma now. That's about 469 miles.


aweap

At least she has a title to her name. 2020 Semifinalist Podoroska still struggling to comeback on tour.


s0ngsforthedeaf

Claire Liu vs Ann Li Both Chinese-American. Both 22 years old. Both moderate prospects with top 30-40 potential. ***Don't*** get them confused 😅


Plane_Highlight3080

I thought that was confusing and then I saw that in the draw we also have Xiyu Wang and Xinyu Wang.


s0ngsforthedeaf

Exactly the same problem with them, lol. Almost the same age, and same ability.


[deleted]

How is Teichmann seeded 9th at Tallinn?


Muraria

I see that seed 6. withdrew and was replaced by Teichmann for seeding spot


throwawayblahblas

So I didn’t watch the Fedal doubles but have seen the clips on socials. They were playing like an exhibition. Nobody was punching volleys away. They were pushing them and going for crowd friendly entertainment shots. Apologies if it’s been said but. Yeah. It wasn’t real


[deleted]

So you saw the highlight clips, that by definition are going to feature the crowd friendly shots and concluded that's all they had? I saw the whole match. They were trying hard. Federer was clearly a few steps behind the others, but Rafa was going 100% to win it for him. Like Tiafoe is literally getting dragged all over the internet for going too tryhard in Fed's last match lol...


Earnmuse_is_amanrag

I don't know what match you watched, but it was most definitely real. The quality wasn't very high, but it was definitely a proper match.
