    Yet another top player is struck down by the curse of Juan José.

    Hey, not to be all Misogyny Is Everywhere or anything (although…), but how come Monfils is wonderfully, be-lovable-ly flaky (including his 1st round outfit) and Mattek-Sands isn’t?

    Or did I miss Flatman’s snarky comments about Monfils’ style?

    The British journalists are just brutal.
    Women tennis is bashed every time Wimbledon comes around.

    I think anyone who watched this year’s Stuttgart match between these two should’ve foreseen trouble for Li Na, even if that was played indoors. Today I only got to watch the deciding set, Li wasn’t at her best, but Mattek-Sands really won it. It was impressive (and sad for me since I really wanted Li to make a run to at least the semis). Always admire a comeback-from-injury sports story.

    I bet Neil Harman wouldn’t be so cutesy if it was the ATP. Also, pay attention. Mattek-Sands isn’t some lucky loser journeywoman who has never accomplished anything.
