Re: Canadian Players 2

Sigouin had a tough loss against Gonzalez today in Toronto qualifier. From the first ball, he was definitely the aggressor, and he kept that up for most of the match. He broke Gonzalez in the 3rd...

Re: Félix Auger-Aliassime

Definitely good fight from Felix. Showed why he should be great with some really nice ground strokes for winners -- but also showed he's still 15 and needs some consistency. Still, a great start...

Re: Denis Shapovalov

I watched Shapovalov's hit with Berdych today. They played a practice set, and Shapovalov more than held his own --- (it was 4-4 when I left to catch the rest of Felix's match). Berdy was...

Re: WWW ATP Toronto Masters 1000 (withdrawals, draw discussions, etc)

Rogers & Tennis Canada get hit with Olympic withdrawal tournaments every 4 years, but it's probably something they just factor in. However, for those of us in Toronto who only go to the men's...

Re: Toronto Qualifying Entry List (updated July 19, 2016)

Yah Schnur wins were pretty good. Although frankly watching him, I didn't get the impression that he had eye-opening talent (I haven't followed him that much lately, so frankly not sure what is...

Re: Toronto Qualifying Entry List (updated July 6, 2016)

Wow, didn't realize that.

I was at qualies in 2014 in TO and some of the Canadian WCs were painful to watch against this tier; Masters qualies can have some really good players . Anyways, saw...

Re: Denis Shapovalov

TennisTV only has stadium & grandstand 1. I think once in while they'll show a little bit of another court (for a few points, end of match), but looks look like we are out of luck for R1.

Re: WWW ATP Toronto Masters 1000 (withdrawals, draw discussions, etc)

This is getting depressing. And the wait is 2 years, not 1 year like most tournaments. Hope Del Potro is coming with a WC.

Re: Toronto Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated July 14, 2016)

I think so too. Actually, we may have been able to predict Andy & Novak's plans by the fact that Nole signed up here with his Olympic doubles partner, while Andy's partner (his brother) signed up...

Re: WWW ATP Toronto Masters 1000 (withdrawals, draw discussions, etc)

Yup, he is signed up with Zimonjic. Expect to see a bunch of pre-Olympic partnerships here. Gonna be some marquee doubles matches on the cozy Grandstand this year.

Re: Washington R1: Sugita def Pospisil 1-6 6-2 7-6(4)

He's very fortunate to be first alt at Cincy too (based on ranking before last year wimby points dropped), so will get in for sure. So Vasek will get 2 cracks at some wins in an M1000. But he's...

Re: Davis Cup

Well, we couldn't have got a much better draw than that (particularly that we were assured a home tie with Chile eg. Think if we got Uzbekistan away on clay right after USO?).

Odds of Raonic...

Re: Washington Doubles Entry List (updated July 6, 2016)

Nestor & ERV. Guess Daniel has forgiven ERV for leaving him in a lurch for the grass season.

Re: Milos Raonic withdraws from the Olympics

this may actually help Canada's chances to stay in the WG of DC. Milos could have been burnt out after TO, Rio, Cinci, USO - making the WG playoffs the week after a tough slog. With Vasek's form...

Re: Toronto Qualifying Entry List (updated July 6, 2016)

Interesting that Felix is signed up as an alternate. No way he makes it unless he's given a WC ... and last year he indicated (with Tennis Canada's blessing I believe) that he hoped for a QWC in...

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Yah, Vasek actually won a higher % of receiving points than Ramos (34% to 31%). But he couldn't win the big points.

Re: WWW. Queen's club R1: Raonic - Kyrgios

Easy prediction 1: Winner makes at least the SF
Easy prediction 2: Loser plays Boodles, winner does not. (So if Kyrgios wins, he withdraws from Boodles & Milos signs up -- otherwise per current...

Re: Anyone is paying for Tennis TV?

Agreed 100%. As it is, you need to 1) pay for the ATP tour matches and 2) find another resource for GS. And in Canada, we are screwed since TSN which owns all the GS this year, doesn't offer...

Re: Steven Diez

If he can win the next one, he'll be inside the top-200. Probably has to play Khachanov though & the big young gun seems to be playing very well lately so will be tough.

Re: What will be the seedings for Wimbledon?

Some really tight races for critical seeds.
a) 65 points separating Berdych, Cilic, & Thiem for #8
b) 53 points separating Monfils & Kyrgios for #16

and the chase for the last 2 seeds (#31,...

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Actually had 3 set points at 5-2, 40-0* ... and seemed to have achieved that from 2-2 in a matter of a few minutes. Guess he fell apart after that.
