  1. I’m pleased to see Rebecca getting off to a positive start. I really enjoyed watching her in the past, and wish her all the best.

    • Not 100% sure. She was entered into the Surprise ITF the week of Feb. 12 but WD Monday. Is entered in a similar event in California the week of the 19th, so far.

  2. Wow!! Rebecca Marino must be really playing well. I thought it was a great accomplishment for her to getting through qualification, but she even won her first main draw match quite handily.

    • Let’s all calm down. Her first-round opponent was an 18-year-old who doesn’t even have a WTA ranking. And she won three matches, too. So baby steps. 🙂
      Those events are a good place to start, because her base level, even after the break, is just so much higher. The big challenge is mental.

      • I know it’s going to be baby steps for her, but she couldn’t have asked for a better start. I really hope that she gets what she wants out of attempting this comeback which I would guess is to hold up mentally.

        • I hope, and believe, she’s not thinking the goal is to “hold up mentally”. I think the goal is to enjoy the game she loved and missed, and get back to doing what she does best in the world. I think she’s confident she will “hold up”, or she wouldn’t have attempted a comeback in the first place. She’s in a good place.

  3. I don’t know if it is coincidence or causation, but both Raonic and Bouchard started to decline when they stopped representing their country in Davis and Fed cups.

  4. Steph, Raonic is not playing Davis Cup next week-end, but I think he is scheduled to play a tournament soon, so not injured. Do you know if he was asked & declined, of if he wasn’t asked (unlikely, I know). He usually plays when not injured, so I was just wondering because none of the articles about the team mentioned him at all. Tks.

    • Asked, obviously. Declined.
      The “Usually plays when not injured” thing might have been true, like, four years ago.
      Fact: he hasn’t played Davis Cup in three years. He hasn’t played an away tie since 2013.
