  1. I watched Gabi’s doubles final last night. I couldn’t believe how they unraveled. 🙁

  2. The match between Shapo & Vasek was such high quality. Both players had their A games going. Shapo just a little bit better. Against almost anyone else, Vasek would have probably won. Great match to watch.
    Re. Schnur’s remarks about Roger & Rafa not stepping up to speak against the qualifying matches being played in such poor air quality conditions, shouldn’t it be the Player’s Council doing that? Isn’t it there to look out for all the players? Tks.

      • Later read that Schnur posted that his comments were taken out of context. He clarified what he said, & they were definitely taken out of context.

        • Fans will ALWAYS side with players when they realize that something they very much said, once they saw it in black and white, came out somewhat differently than they “meant”.
          And then people go “Oh, those bad journalists”. Always our fault.Even when it isn’t. (Sometimes it is!)
          But it’s not quite that simple.
          You can’t always read someone’s mind as to intent – I mean, I might go back with him on that to make sure he was saying what he was saying. But I KNOW him.
          I got in touch with him to do an interview with me that evening. He begged off because he was “tired and needed to focus on recovery”. So …
          When you are speaking to total strangers, you have to be very, very clear on what you MEAN. Or keep it general and boring.
          I’ve been interviewed plenty, and I’ve had that experience where I said something, and when I saw it down on *paper*, it “felt” different than what I meant. Or my quote was too long, and the part the journalist used didn’t reflect my entire thought or explanation. So you learn.
          But he said what he said. End quote.
          You can come back after the fact and say, “Oh, the media took it out of context”. But context isn’t the right word. It also doesn’t make it true.
          His statement was good, though.
