Muchova is nothing more than a journey-woman.
Totally agree, there is no reason why someone with such a game is locked up on the ITF.
@Ace2Ace, you owe me some money. :lol:
Would you take Crypto?

Grrr so annoying - I paid espn subscription but that does not permit me to watch various matches
such as Serena Murray match -

they make it impossible for tennis fans to watch tennis without tv cable (even if one has internet) -
this just seems wrong & exploitative.

Several years ago one could pay a small fee to wimbledon and watch all matches -
now not possible

I think other sports are far more accessible to watch.

Any working link to see matches would be appreciated TIA

CC, since you subscribe to ESPN, the match is on regular ESPN. So, you should be able to see the match.

If that doesn't work, attached is another link:

Looks like the house is packed for this mixed doubles match. There's even a large crowd on the "Hill" for this. Nice to see.....

yes... tennis is hard to find on TV. pretty sad.
You have to pay for special packages... and they don't even stream the tournaments all year, just a few. It's really not worth it subscribing but we have no real options.

Yes. the first time you try to log on, you always have to provide the provider account credentials. I wouldn't mind that if they were not charging us extra fees after we pay for cables.

Did someone ask when the real Serena was gonna show up?? Well, she showed up, and showed OFF!!

She put up her "business bun" and that was a wrap :) Those last three games were amazing tennis ~ WHEEWW!!

Go Ree!!

I felt Serena played v well - not sluggish

SMH the commentator kept shifting the goal posts - for Serena attaining records - whatever she achieves
Agreed!! Who wrote that shytt??! Serena was much much more than a serve. Did you see her amazing CC side-to-side strokes??

As for that Margaret Court record, it's BS!! That was never the standard and they know it!! It was Steffi's #22 in the open era, not Margaret winning closed slams with her high school mates!! This pizzes me off!!

Watched the match... I have not changed my opinion that I wrote during RG: Serena's serve and ROS are suberb, and here on grass it may be enough to win the title. But her accuracy when forced to run is not as good as it was in her prime.
I said at the time that Serena is not dominant in longer rallies anymore. They showed stats during the third set vs Riske that confirmed this: Riske was the better player in the longer rallies. Doesn't matter what McEnroe says - based on his observations: facts and numbers do not lie.

It was a close match: 6-4 4-6 6-3... and if you know that the aces were 18-1 for Serena-Riske, then you see that Serena made the difference there. (and then I am not even considering all the winning return-of-serves...).
She cannot afford a bad serving day if she wants to win #24.

Why should she run herself ragged (on a bad knee), when she can just finish the point in one or two blistering strokes?? Even with that, she ran Ali side to side, back and forth, to win several key points. Her net play was good too!!

And, she was the best player on the court in their mixed win :)
