Would be interesting what will happen in women’s tennis this season, I'm expecting some movement at the top of the rankings, don't expect so severe Serena's dominance as in the last years (if any) because of her age and I really hope some of the youngsters to step up, maybe some of the more experienced too.

It's looking obvious what will going to happen in womens tournament even before the semis:
...all Williams final - Serena to win it and I could proudly say I'm not watching that 😉

Hahah I know we sort of mentioned it in this thread before but what do you reckon... is Serena the greatest women's player of all time?

I think she has to be up there at least in the top 2 or 3, if not the best. Its hard to judge now though because it seems to me that the competition is quite weak at the moment.

From what I could remember Ed..Steffi Graff is the best women tennis player I've seen, and she quitted relatively young maybe around 30-32 she could easily play for another couple of seasons which could mean another 3-4 GS titles...so it would be tougher or impossible for Serena to overcome her records, but anyway I couldn't admit that Serena is somewhere in top 3, despite her style (or the lack of it) although every tennis expert today will tell she's the top of the pop 😉 but that's just because of the titles of course.
Serena is a great competitor(even too great if you ask me) but even without that she would probably been a winner in at least half of those GS titles she has today, check Venus titles for example, so I think you're quite right Ed, competition is nowhere to be seen in the last couple of year, in fact the level of the others is ridiculously low.

Not exactly a news but Serena is pregnant as far as I know so a chance for the rest for a breather without her dominance, I doubt anyone could dominate in hers absence but let's see..Sharapova is back by the way.

Yes I was reading about how Sharapova lost to Bouchard who was the one who publicly called her a cheat last month. So it seems that the other players are going to be quite motivated to beat Sharapova.

You might be right about that Ed, they would probably be, I guess some tough ride expecting Sharapova now...

Halep looking great, it really should be now or never for her...neither of the rest left in the tournament has a GS title so in any case it would be a first time winner, a few girls playing really well but I believe it's a Simona's turn...don't think Wozniacki would of like that though 🙂
I was impressed by Bacsinszky and Ostapenko today, think they both have a good chances winning their matches, don't think Pliskova playing good enough to wins it but hey...it's a women's tennis - the predictions could prove to be ridiculous.

The unpredictability is the best thing about women's tennis, so long as Serena Williams isn't playing of course! I think you're right about Halep though, she smashed Navarro in her last match and has had a very comfortable run so far.

I maybe said that already but I think it's now or never for Halep, she can't miss such a chance with Williams, Sharapova not here and the other top players already gone.
Said that in the other threat but these good players which winning very rarely a tournament like her sometimes can't even win in a lot weaker concurrency, in other words the second are always second - will that be valid for Halep - let's see...
Didn't know you're such a tennis fan Ed 😛

😮 That was quite a match between Halep and Svitolina, the cliché says it should be the final but I doubt it could be so good match at the final because of the great stake..anyway Halep have shown a really great feisty character and won a match in which she was dead and berried...it's now or never.

Pliskova dine well too, so it should be a great semi.

Oh yeah I like tennis, though the French Open is usually the major I like the least (along with most on clay courts). A long time ago when I was a teenager I used to play competition tennis and in tournaments. Only local ones, nothing big or anything.

Great win by Halep but Svitolina disintegrated. It must be up there with the biggest chokes in French Open history surely. Even after losing the match points and the tie breaker there was all to play for but she fell apart and lost the third set 6-0. Incredible!

So you're multi talented or what, football and tennis player...well done Ed

Hope your style was more of a Sampras not like Nadal's Ed 😉

and why we talk about your tennis experience exactly in WTA thread anyway 😀

I think Halep deserved it, she just stacked into the match when it was impossible to overplay Svitolina and that's all you could do sometimes when you're hardly outplayed, just don't surrender when you're helpless and be patient until the opponent lowers the level of her play, Halep turn the match from 1-5 or 2-5 in the second., really incredible.

Hahah no way I was more like a terrible Chang! 😂 I had no weapons, I just ran around a lot and kept hitting the ball back until the other guy hopefully made a mistake! I'd get thrashed by the ladies on the WTA! 😂

I didn't watch the tennis last night as I was too tired. I hope you didn't put your money on Bacsinszky.

That's a good tactic Ed, Murray and Nadal made a careers based on that (or at least the early days), and what's wrong with Chang, he was an entertaining player 🙂

I'm not so busy as you Ed, but I didn't had the time to watch it too, I was very surprised to see from the highlights that Bacsinszky had lost. Obviously Ostapenko has the balls 😉

Hopefully the final would be thrilling, I wonder if the Latvian girl could do it because all the pressure should be on Halep's shoulders, no doubt he will be very nervous at least in the beginning and that could influence her game, no idea what will happen.

I have to hand it to you - you were spot on in that assessment. Though the overriding thing I got from watching the final was how annoying the two grunters / squealers were. It was that bad that I had to turn the sound down!

😂 ha- ha, you've made the right move Ed, yeah especially Halep shouts were unbearable, and here's a little question for you - Who was the first girl that started all this - shouting on court I mean- common you're not that young you should remember it 😉

I remember Monica Seles was a huge grunter. So was Arancha Sanchez. It has to be one of them.

Completely right Ed, I think it was Seles that was first to produce those really annoying shouts, as far as I remember Sanchez was not quiet too but I believe it was Seles that really used it for as a tactic, and frustrating the opponent.

Who's your favourite for Wimbledon Ed?
With Serena and Sharapova out, Kvitova been stubbed in her home and not in great shape just like Azarenka, I think there's many questions around this one, maybe yet another new winner?

here's the odds, obviously the bookies have not an idea - quite like me 🙂
or maybe the winner is not in this list 🤔

That is certainly an open field and its hard to pick a favourite let alone a winner. Kvitova is pretty good on grass, so is Kerber who made the final recently (last year?). Ostapenko might even be worth an outside bet at 17-1. She just won the French and she has won Wimbledon as a junior.

Yeah probably Ostapenko odds are worth it Ed, but did you see that Australian girl - Ashleigh Barty , she played that great grass tournament and reached the final, defeated some famous names and almost beat Kvitova on the final in Birmingham, she has the game for grass proving that you don't have to be two meters tall to play at the net, good doubles player - good volleys and just 21y.o, probably worth it checking hers odds 🤔

Yeah Barty was 66-1 last week. Now you'd be lucky to get 30. She is unseeded and I can't see her winning though. Latest news is that Kvitova (who beat Barty in the final recently) has an injury so maybe not worth a punt on her at this point.

Yeah you're right Ed Barty is at 26 right now and it maybe doesn't worth the risk, I don't think he has a great chance of winning it too just thought it would be a fun placing a small bet at the previous high odds, I think in Serena absence we could have a different winner in every one of the GS tournaments, or at least this year.
Pliskova and Kvitova are the favourites but who knows what might happen, certainly I don't.

Someone said it's easier to guess the lottery numbers than guessing the women's Wimbledon winner - I'm willing to believe to that 🙂
Saw Ostapenko and Azarenka wins today and it wasn't easy for neither of them, the rest of the favourites also goes trough, there are how many - maybe 20 girls that could win it?

I like it unpredictable, its far more entertaining that way. I noticed Barty got beaten in the first round - I hope I saved you some cash on that one!

Halep is my new favourite Ed, what's yours? Should be easier to predict now...I guess 😉
It crossed my mind even before the tournament, everybody expected her to lift the title on Rolland Garros but there's no pressure now, more so they said it's very slow surface this year, almost like on Paris clay so the power hitters are not favourable at all.

I like Muguruza's chances. I'm putting my neck on the line and predicting that she will beat Venus Williams 7-5 6-0 in the final!
