    You could not help but to give Benneteau some love but he has played at least one final every year starting with 2008. Manixdk will get you for the Piotr Wozniacki incident where he said that he did quiet down after discussing with the chair over the blown call in their native language.

    Juan Jose,
    Good choice on winner for the week by picking Alund in São Paulo but you has to be nicer to Nieminen and his accomplishment on getting a double bagel. LOL!

    You can not do the asterisk thing on Azarenka’s win. Once you are on the court, all excuses are out the window. Azarenka won the match fair and square. If you do not believe me on the asterisk thing, take a peak at TW in 2009 when Federer finally completed his Career Slam where Soderling pulled off the biggest upset in ATP history when he won over Nadal. Pete Bodo uses the asterisk on a consistent basis and the Federer fans were up in arms over that comment.

      Thanks for the kudos, Master Ace, but with regards to Nieminen…..never!

    I hate asterisks on any win – the winner won regardless of the circumstances. It’s a bit like criticing a title win by saying the winner didn’t play a top player to secure it – you can only play the player in front of you. And if they have reached the next round, then that player must be doing something right. So who really cares who JJ played, it’s not like she fixed it that way.
    I also agree with Amy and Linz regarding head to head stats. Recording a walkover as a win in the head to head stats does not tell me as a fan anything about the matchup between players and actually confuses the matter. If there was no actual match then how can it count?
