    Edmund into the New York final in a very weak field.
    Hazelwood v Will to Win ( Regents Park ) in Middlesex Cup semi today.
    I looked on their site and their head coach,same qualification as me ( L5 Master Performance Coach ) but far lower playing level,is charging £60 an hour for a lesson!
    Even their L3s charge £46!
    It must be a mixture of obscenity and customer stupidity I suppose.

    Edmund beats Seppi to win in New York.
    Hazelwood beat WtW RP 4-2 inside to reach the final.
    A team of nations,two of them Amazonian. I was nearly a Polo Mint on two occasions! Sharpens the volleying reflexes that's certain!

    Simon beats Medvedev in the battle of the skinny players in Marseille. Odd score,6-4 6-0.
    Tsitsipas beats the returning Pospisil to face Bublik,the crazy server.
    Auguer Aliassime,having reached the Rotterdam final last week and had three sets and been match points down in previous two rounds,beats Gerasimov the improving Bulgarian. He plays Simon.

    Must be pretty serious - guess they would have players and coaches traveling from all across the world.

    Will it be rescheduled ?
     
  15. I think I have a solution the the BOG ROLL shortage, just use your bare hands instead because that will have a double whammy effect, as everyone will also remember to wash their hands if they use that method :D

    I doubt it,the tour barely has a spare week.
    Someone had contracted the virus in the area and given the amount of fans and air travel it was inevitable I suppose.
    Rome and even Roland Garros must be fearful,together with all european clay events.

    ATP tour cancelled for six weeks.
    RG likely to go and Wimbledon too.
    Oddly the seniors in Miami April 23 yet to be cancelled,although only a matter of time I suppose.

    TQC have just tried to postpone the match,clearly the prospect of travelling to the slums of Winchmore Hill terrifies their sensibilities!
    They were told to get on with it by the organiser.
    Baa and Faith are coming from Oxfordshire,the worst hit county!
    I'm looking for my The The edition of 'Infected'.

    Queen's win after some close matches.
    Inverdale junior on their team,how I wished I'd gone as Bartoli!
    The match was spoiled by their flimsy attitude. They wouldn't even touch elbows,odd given that we'd been handling the same tennis balls for five hours!
    Only Andrea,the Russian with the Roller stayed for supper and she was very unimpressed with her team.
    Bunch of entitled middle/upper class saps who give tennis its bad name in most eyes.

    French and US Open to be played straight after one another in September... potentially!

    Not sure how RG can be accommodated so close to FM.
    No tennis competitions until a review by LTA April 20.
    Thank goodness we won our 40s league a month ago although I half expect Wretchworth to try and void it,despite losing 8-0 to us!

    Wimbledon postponed until next year. But some people more worried about their ballot tickets for the finals than comprehending the situation around them.

    People can still buy the same ballot tickets for next year. What they moaning about?

    So will they not have a ballot for next year's Championship?


    Think I read they were refunding too ?
