Really liked the tribute, though I didn’t like how the players in the video were clearly just reading scripted lines.

Would have been better to hear their own words and takes.

Not that any of it was insincere but it was clear they wrote a script and divided out who would say what.

Navarro rock solid and played great. Coco got flustered and her forehand broke down, as it does.

Every player has a range of play, and a range of stroke production. But the range should not be as big as Coco's is for a top 5 player. Sure, she may have a bad day with her forehand, but it shouldn't be THAT bad.

by Anonymousreply 125July 7, 2024 8:37 PM

It's no secret that if you hammer Gauff's forehand it will break down. I thought that she had hired a coach specifically to work on the forehand. What happened with that?

by Anonymousreply 126July 7, 2024 8:49 PM

Gilbert said that if she changes her grip and totally reworks her forehand it could upset the rest of her game. As dicey as her forehand is, she's achieved a LOT as is. And reworking a tennis stroke is NOT easy as things are ingrained by this point. So I just don't know what she does. I've always thought she could take a more defensive approach to her forehand, which she sort of did when she first started. Take a few steps back, hit more mid-pace higher-arc looping shots to give herself time and make her opponents have to make shots. I'm thinking Sabatini, or ASV, or Martinez. Then be aggressive with the forehand on mid-court balls and passing shots. I'm not a coach (though I do play tennis, lol), so I'm just throwing things out there.

Putintseva is such a brat on court. Peppa has mellowed out with that nonsense, but she was formerly the worst behaved in the WTA. It just comes off petulant and childish.

Danielle Rose remains the grande dame of cunting around the court, but somehow she comes off more fiery and authoritative and it just looks less pathetic coming from her.

[quote] Please explain Garfia for Carlitos?

In addition, when Carlitos first started playing professionally he was listed as Carlos Alcaraz. At some point the draws and scores started using his full name of Carlos Alcaraz Garfia. I’m not sure why that happened (or why it didn’t happen in the first place) given that, as R231 indicated, RCB, ADF and others are referred to by their full names. Nadal, interestingly, has always been referred to as Rafael Nadal rather than his full name.

"Spaniards often carry both the maternal and the paternal surnames."

So what happens when two people with both maternal and paternal surnames get married. They just don't keep adding names in perpetuity, do they?

So if Carlos Alcaraz (paternal) Garfia (maternal) gets married to Conchita Martinez (paternal) Bernat (maternal) (I know, Conchita is a lesbian, but just to illustrate) and they have a son, Javier, and a daughter, Isabelle, what are their names? Only the maternal names carry? So, Javier Alcaraz Martinez and Isabelle Alcaraz Martinez?

"Paolini is journeywoman?"

She's probably not anymore, but she definitely was. He career started in earnest in 2015 (even though Wiki says she turned pro on 2011). She didn't play the main draw of a Slam until 2019 - and it was only one Slam that year before consistently playing starting in 2020. She never advanced beyond the second round of a Slam until 2024 (AO). First tournament win didn't come until 2021 (a 250) and second win 2024. She didn't reach the Top 50 until 2022, top 20 in 2023. So, in addition to direct entry, she was qualifying, relying on wild cards, sometimes playing challengers for quite a few years before she got established - which is sort of the journeyman MO.

This is the worst Wimby! There's no good storyline heading into the semis. Musetti is cool, I guess. But Novak will utterly destroy him.

In fact, Novak will cruise to the title. (Hurt knee my ass.) Carlos won't do it twice in a row. Especially because he's actually been very inconsistent in matches he should be breezing through. That won't work against Novak.

And while I like Ryba, I wanted it to be a bit more challenging. She should also cruise to the title.

Someone must have had fun with that title, because they then added “-final” after “semi”. And, unfortunately, if you follow the link you end up with a much more prosaic title: “Lorenzo Musetti sinks Taylor Fritz in five sets to set up Djokovic clash”.

I think the umpire heard him swear at her (3 times ‘fuck you!’ according to most, with an added a ‘bitch’ or ‘piece of shit’ at the end according to others), and she called over a supervisor and the tournament referee. They discussed the issue for a bit and she gave him a warning for unsportsmanlike conduct in the end. Perhaps the umpire Eva Asderaki wanted to discuss a stronger punishment (defaulting?)?

It was a difficult call and replays have shown how close it was. Asderaki's probably the most experienced umpire on the tour and even she had to seek advice on this one.

Medvedev got his punishment for swearing at the umpire but it would seem she and the supervisors decided that was enough as it had been such a close, difficult call.

R407, sorry, but I am. I've written this before, but the reason I admire Djokovic is because, when he joined the tour, Federer and Nadal were so dominant and everyone else seemed to resign themselves to playing supporting cast to those two superstars. But Djokovic wasn't going to be satisfied with that. He committed himself to improving his technique, his physicality, and his mental game so that he could challenge those two seemingly invincible athletes. Djokovic wasn't intimidated going up against two of the all-time greats, and for that I give him a lot of credit. Now, as for the ingratiating things he does (thankfully he finally stopped with the "boobs out" gesture), his anti-vax stance, his frequent boorish behavior on court, etc., I remind myself of that quote about amazing athletes with clay feet. Roughly paraphrasing, it goes something like, "Admire them for what they can do, not for who they are."

Paolini reminds me of Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario. Playing against the bigger hitters, she's not in control of her own destiny, but she is really adept at taking advantage of opportunities when those opponents falter.

I really hope that Kejcikova doesn’t have a Novotna meltdown in the third.

Funny that Jazzy P, who's all of 4ft tall, has more aces in this match.

R481, I felt the same way, but Paolini is beginning to win me over with her feistiness.

Paolini has an interesting ethnic background: Italian, Polish and Ghanian.

Day 13

Several famous stars rushed to see some live tennis as Wimbledon reaches its final stages. On Saturday (13 July), Hollywood star Kate Beckinsale (Serendipity, the Underworld franchise) was sat in the royal box alongside Skyfall and 1917 director Sam Mendes and Strictly Come Dancing professional Johannes Radebe. Hugh Jackman, who is in London to promote his new film, Deadpool & Wolverine, was also in attendence, sat with theatre director ian Rickson, while singer Ellie Goulding was also present. Former tennis pros Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova were there, also.

And today Maria Sharapova headed back to SW19, this time as a guest in the Royal Box - just as she did last week on Day Three of the 2024 Championships.

The Russian, who hung up her tennis racquet as she retired in 2020, was joined by her fiance Alexander Gilkes in the posh seats to watch the ladies' singles final between Jasmine Paolini and Barbora Krejcikova on Centre Court.

The superstar couple are enjoying massive success in the business world with their growing empire.

I didn't see her; I had turned it off right at the end of the match. Really? Bartoli had gotten super skinny after she retired, BEFORE the Ozempic craze. I'm surprised she didn't switch methods at some point. Or maybe she doesn't care.

Chasing the whole match but pulled it out from behind in the final 2 set tie-breaks. The underdogs steal it!

I don’t know what to feel about Barbora over Jasmine. I guess I don’t really care. Slight edge to Jasmine, I guess. Obviously much more excited about Marfia vs. Novaxx.

I was happy for Barbora. She played great tennis and did not have an easy draw. She seems 'no drama' on court and it must be really sweet to her to win a second major, on grass no less.

by Anonymousreply 523July 13, 2024 9:20 PM

WIMBLEDON's awful last 3 winners in the women's draw should make one wonder if grass needs to go. Or more tournaments on it? The US will have zero grass court events after this year's HOF. Tennis on grass is pleasing and I do love how it exposes players like Iga, Coco who just cannot master it.

I'm guess grass courts are not cheap or easy to maintain, and that's part of the problem.

I was expecting to see Legz+ in his girlfriend's box (player's box) for the women's double's final. But alas, no. Siniakova will have to bump pussies with TayTay instead.
