Tennis Season 2018 - Hard Court Season

 

Postby stevyy » Mon Oct 23, 2017 11:26 am

DelPo just won his 20th title yesterday in Stockholm. He is back in the Top 20 as well. I am so happy for him.

Julia Goerges is Germany's new #1, winning the title in Moscow (her 4th final in 2017)... she is the new #18 on the WTA ranking... Kerber is down to #19.

I loved seeing Wozniacki give Svitolina the Muguruza-treatment (reference to Woz’ win against Mugu in Tokyo)! :D 8-)

Well, she has reached the final at the US Open two times and the semifinal three additional times. I still think that she can win a Slam, especially with her current mix of a very well-balanced defence and offence. She has played amazing in Singapore, and tomorrow I believe that she will win the final against Venus. No matter what, the other girls will be scared to meet Wozniacki at the Australian Open in January! 8-)

The match against Pliskova today was so exciting. One of the best matches this year (maybe behind their match in Toronto) :D

Amazing win for Wozniacki in Singapore! :D On her way to victory she beat number 1, 3, 4 and 5. She also beat number 2 Muguruza in Tokyo. With her current strong balance of aggression and defence there’s no reason that she shouldn’t have the ability to win a Grand Slam, because she has the ability to beat anyone. It’s all about peaking at the right time for her, and I hope that she will win a slam in 2018. Of course Serena is also a factor, because she is impossible to beat for everyone, when she plays her best.

According to Forbes, Roger Federer passed Novak Djokovic as the top prize money earner

2017 was the comeback year for male tennis giants
Wonder what 2018 holds in store for us.
I only hope there will be no injuries and all the guys will be in their best form.

there isn't any additional accolades to a ''top 5 player'' within the women's game. anyone can beat each other, no one is even close to dominating the field

Both fields are quite open... Guess Federer is favourite on the men's side, all the other players are fueled with insecurities (Nadal, Djokovic, Wawrinka,...). Maybe we can see a surprise winner? Women's side is open like it was the last 7 years or so (bar Serena Williams). There are around 30 people who could win it and even then...

I think Stephens didn't even win a match since her US open crown. Mladenovic lost 14 matches in a row...

Can I just say that I want DelPo to finally win sth BIG again? God, I love that man so much.

Kerber won an actual tournament today, her first victory since the USO in 2016.

She has 11 titles to her name now, among them 2 Grand Slam titles (AO and USO)

DelPo should definitely win a Grand Slam again. We can only dream

wow, 7 US women dropped out in Rd 1, including Venus.

I am praying for Angie and the German boys to get thru.

It's time for Sascha zverev to make an impact, perfect opportunity

Sad that Venus lost but glad at the same time Goerges will have a easier time making the quarters :D

Shocked at Venus out in round 1, but nice to see Belinda Bencic back after her injury problems hope she goes far into the draw

Can't see beyond Federer for the men's title, though if Kyrgios can just focus on tennis 100% he is a Grand Slam champion sooner rather than later

The women's singles on the other hand is wide open, for me it's between Kerber (she's back!!) and Goerges, but then it could be anyone
