  Keyser Soze: Wft is Monfils doing? Utter disgraceful. A potential of a great game became a joke.

  saffuna: That has to be the worst major final I've seen since Evonne Goolagang couldn't hit a ball against BJ King. Pliskova looked nervous all the time, almost scared, throughout the match. She made four easy errors in the final game to give it away.

  HeMateMe: the USA semis and finals lost a bit of the pizazz from recent years. Forgettable stuff. Anyway, Germany has their first ladies GS champ since Graf, 1998. Bin awhile.

  HeMateMe: Isn't it Kerber? I guess I read the headline wrong.

  saffuna: Kerber is German. She was born in Germany and plays for the German Fed Cup team. She lives in Poland.

Well, she won 13 games in a 3 sets match. I watched the last two sets and it was an excellent final.

Women's Singles final:
Angelique Kerber
Karolina Plíšková
6–3, 4–6, 6–4

  saffuna: I didn't think the quality was particularly high, and thought Pliskova looked nervous, certainly compared to the way she just hit out against Serena. But maybe I am expecting too much.

Pliskova definitely just folded in the final game, where she lost her serve to lose the match.

Psychologically I don't see how any but the very best can play tennis in a stadium that big. So intimidating.

  Keyser Soze: What about this Sascha Zverev?

Great future ahead. I hope he doesn't became a new Tomic or Dimitrov.

  HeMateMe: hmm...

"The documents the group says it hacked from WADA’s Anti-Doping Administration and Management System (ADAMS) database contain information that Serena Williams, was taking a number of banned substances.

Williams was allowed to take oxycodone, hydromorphone, prednisone and methylprednisolone in 2010, 2014 and 2015, despite the substances being placed on WADA’s list of banned substances.

Serena’s older sister Venus was found to have taken prednisone, prednisolone, triamcinolone and formoterol, which are also on WADA’s banned list. "

Well, isn't prednisone an anti inflammatory, not an anabolic steroid? oxycodone and hydromorphone are pain killers, carefully prescribed for short term pain relief, no refill allowed without a new prescription written. I'm not sure if this "hacked info" means anything.

Mac and Sharapova teamed in doubles the other night in Vegas, her first tennis since being suspended.

  HeMateMe: uber babe Ana Ivanovic has retired, at age 29. nice looking gal, she probably made more money in endorsements than in prize money.

  perfidious: Considering that Ivanovic's career earnings were a shade north of $15.5 mill, if that is the case, she did right well for herself.

  saffuna: She got married to German footballer Bastian Steinschweiger last year, so not a huge surprise.

Ivanovic went right to the top at age 21, winning the French and reaching two other major finals,then she lost confidence in her strokes. It was obvious to see she no longer just hit the ball with fluid strokes, but began thinking about it too much, trying not to make errors. She came got back to the top ten at times, but never challenged for the very top again.

  perfidious: <saffuna>, on seeing the post by <HMM>, I read the Wikipedia article about Ivanovic, which recounts her loss in a match which was followed by a four-hour bout of crying, as she feared her coach would abandon her (which never happened).

Between that account and your post, it is a simple matter to infer a certain lack of self-confidence, even as Ivanovic reached Mt Olympus, with the inevitable consequences in its train.

  HeMateMe: she always seemed so graceful, with that height and fluid strokes, but seemed to lack the killer instinct to pound out the very best players. A bit like Gabby Sabatini, maybe.

  HeMateMe: the tennis wish list for 2017

<https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/16/...>

I'd like to see the equipment slowed down a bit, the ball slowed down. Less muscle, more strategy, in winning points. I can dream...

  saffuna: Clarey also writes that seeding players 17-32, instead of just 1-16, reduces the chances of exciting matches in the first two rounds.

This is certainly true. But Federer is seeded 17th this year, largely because of injury, so without the extended seeding it would have been possible to see a first-round Federer-Djokovic or Federer-Murray match.

The ball is the same as it ever was, but today's strings give players the ability to hit hard on most shots and still keep the ball in the court. And of course the rackets are more powerful yet also forgiving.

  HeMateMe: venus is still in it! I think she's 37, 38 years old. pretty tough how they've both lasted so long in a business with a high burnout rate. I didn't realize Serena is 36--that's old age, in tennis years, but she is still ranked world no. 2. I'd like to see her go one up on Graf's record. They both have 22 majors.

  perfidious: Serena Williams has endured at the highest levels as long as she has for more than one reason, but there is a subtle one I have seen allusions to which has alleged to have contributed to her longevity: she has tended to play fewer events outside the majors than other elite players, and I recall even seeing insinuations that she has not taken lower-level events quite so seriously as she has major ones.
Jan-20-17
Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: Absolutely. She has even let her ranking drop into the teens because she played so few lower-tier tournaments, including the Miami and Paris types. That has helped her maintain herself physically, especially by avoiding traveling all around the world three times every year.

  Keyser Soze: Fed is Back full force..Crushed Berdich ..I'm surprised..problem is that he have a nightmare draw..will get Nishikori, then Murray and can clash with Wawrinka at semis..Djoko had a great path to finals and blew it..crazy..

  optimal play: Great news that the two biggest obnoxious jerks in tennis, Tomic & Kyrgios, have both been bundled out of the Australian Open so early!

I'm tipping Andy Murray to win the Men's Singles and Daria Gavrilova to win the Women's!

  perfidious: I would like to travel round the world with Serena just once....

That said, good to see the right wanker Kyrgios get served an exit visa.
