Humble Rafa Says:

I have a strong feeling that the Arrogant One will be BB’ed out tomorrow (BB=Benetteau’ed)


Sax Says:

Why is there a picture of Mashona Washington on the front page of this article? She hardly plays anymore. Did someone think that it was Sloane Stephens? I love this website, but sometimes i see confusing stuff like this on here. Just saying..


JayJay Says:

Arrogant one will be out? But you are not playing Humble Rafa… From your statement is pretty clear whos the arrogant one…


Joe W Says:

The Olympics have taken quite the toll on the field of my hometown tourney. Pretty lame draw for a 500 series event. Attendance is down some but expected to be close to 2011 levels.
