  HeMateMe: has anyone heard of the John McEnroe tennis academy in NYC? It's on Wards Island, a large chunk of land in the east river abetting Manhattan. It's a big, ugly looking warehouse type building. I don't know if it's even in operation, whether or not there are tennis students and teachers there.

  optimal play: Great Women's Final!

Congratulations to Caroline Wozniacki.

Commiserations to Simona Halep.

  HeMateMe: Wozi gets the first set. She does have a history of falling apart, though.

  saffuna: <hmm> Put a big bet down on that. Quick.

Tremendous hitting and running by both players in the extended highlights I've seen.

  HeMateMe: halep just had her BP checked, on court. never seen that before. 90 degrees out there tonight, in Oz. That means it might be 105 degrees on the court itself.

These are both good players, but I think Graf, Seles or Navratilova would destroy both of them. Those three just had more talent and greater killer instinct.

Check out the 2002 final between Capriati and Hingis. They were both dying on the court.

  HeMateMe: dangerous in Oz, playing tennis in some conditions.

Wozi wins in 3! The stadium speakers blared "Sweet Caroline!"

  saffuna: <optimal play> Here's an article I stumbled on you might like. It's by Bruce Jenkins of the SF Chronicle, a long-time Internet friend of mine.

<It was spectacularly evident in Kvitova's 6-1, 3-6, 6-2 semifinal win over Victoria Azarenka, followed by a second round in Sharapova's 6-4, 6-3 dismissal of Sabine Lisicki. There was a time when the brutal, unrelenting power of the Williams sisters was a near-surreal sight in women's tennis. Today, it is commonplace.

Personal observation: Given a choice, I'll take the era of wooden rackets, one-handed backhands, serve-and-volley attacks, drop shots, topspin lobs and all of the strategy inherent to all-court tennis. Nothing today compares to the sight of Billie Jean King taking on Margaret Court, or the essential contrast between Navratilova and Chris Evert in their legendary rivalry.>

  alexmagnus: Solution? End gender separation in sports once and for good. People say it will discourage women from participating. Sure it will, on pro level (not on amateur level though). But why <should> women be sports professionals? Women's sports is not a stance against sexism, it's sexist in itself.

  saffuna: <optimal play> I posted a nice article I thought you would like that praises the play of Margaret Court, yet somehow you find it a reason to talk about transgender tennis players.

That already happened in the 80s with Renee Richards. She was older (50), but still powerful, had little success against women pros.

  optimal play: <saffuna> I appreciated the article and was sympathetic to the author's observation regarding the grace and finesse of those players of the previous generations, in particular his reference to Billie Jean King and Margaret Court.

However the main point of the article was about 'Big Babe Tennis' and the dominance of the hard hitters, hence my reference to this recent trend of transgender men pushing their way into women's sport.

I was simply drawing a logical conclusion from the author's article that 'Big Babe Tennis' will ultimately lead to 'Big Transgender Tennis'.

And it won't be 50 year old men in dresses trying to compete, it will be muscular 20 year old men!

  HeMateMe: Transsexual Renee Richards played in the USA Open. She might have had better results, but she played like a girl.

Pretty big jump.

  HeMateMe: there's an ESPN 30/30 out there about Richards, her strange life. She has a kid who's been in and out of jail. It was quite a shock when he/she joined the tennis world. It might have been posted to youtube by now.

  HeMateMe: the ageless Fed gets No. 20

<https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/28/...>

  optimal play: Congrats to Fed!

That's now six Australian Open titles (equalling Roy Emerson & Novak Djokovic) and 20 overall.

It's an astounding achievement for a 36 year old, although Ken Rosewall was 37 when he won it in 1972.

  Marmot PFL: At Wimbledon shots are often called "out" that look "in" to me, while at the Australian open it's the other way round.

  optimal play: <Marmot PFL: At Wimbledon shots are often called "out" that look "in" to me, while at the Australian open it's the other way round.> That's because Wimbledon is in the northern hemisphere whereas Australia is in the southern hemisphere. It's the Coriolis effect with application to tennis balls.

  HeMateMe: Will Australia be entering ice hockey teams (mens & womens) in the upcoming winter Olympics in South Korea? north and south korea are entering a 'super team', a joint women's ice hockey team in the winter olympics. I know the Canadian women are worried. It's up to the Matilda's to stop those north Koreans!

  optimal play: <Marmot PFL: Must be why Australian track cyclists ride clockwise. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lx... No, that's because of the reversed seasons.

<HeMateMe: Will Australia be entering ice hockey teams (mens & womens) in the upcoming winter Olympics in South Korea?> Nope, missed out in qualifying again. We prefer field hockey.

<north and south korea are entering a 'super team', a joint women's ice hockey team in the winter olympics. I know the Canadian women are worried. It's up to the Matilda's to stop those north Koreans!> Not every women's sports team down here is called the 'Matildas' you know. The Australian women's ice hockey team are called the 'Mighty Jills'.

Anyway, perhaps Canada & the USA could combine their teams to combat the joint Korean 'super team'? I'm sure the Canucks and the Yanks would get along great together!

I don't think that would work out. the USA/Canada women's ice hockey rivalry is not a friendly one. I suspect the combo Korean team will play about as well as the Japanese women's team--I think Canada beat them 18-0 in the last Olympics.

  HeMateMe: I think Serena is going to have to lose some weight, childbirth weight, to make it back to the top in tennis.
