    Sakkari lost 
     
    I also wanted Azarenka and Badosa so I am sad that they lost although I don't mind Krejcikova and Keys either.
     
     
    I'm very happy that Zverev lost. Sorry, I don't like him.
     
     
    Dimitra Pavlou of Greece lost in juniors. She had two set points in the second set but could not convert them. Anyways, I mention her because she is actually the first cousin of Maria Sakkari. I know I said it once before, but I think it's cool how much their family is involved in Greek tennis. Angeliki Kanellopoulou (Maria's mother/Dimitra's aunt) was also a top 50 player in the 1980s. 50% of Greece's top 100 WTA players are from the same family, as we only had two others besides Maria and Angeliki.
     
    However, our big talent in the girls' tournament is not Pavlou but Michaela Laki, who is the 6th seed here and won her match yesterday. She is also playing doubles with Dimitra Pavlou.

    Money is a big issue. Also for some nations funding is tied to performance at the Olympics and it's better to have five top 10 results than five top 10 results + one 30th result.

    Why would the IOC care or get involved? This isn't sports related, it's a matter of national security! Every nation has the right to set their rules for entering their country. Isn't this what has been preached to the masses?
     
    I really hope, no i pray, they do it, just to see how hypocrite and two-faced the world order is. Not that any normal person doesn't see it.

    I can't promise that everything will go 100% smoothly if I will host the contest, but I might as well try to do it now when the interest in hosting is so low.
     
    I am not exactly sure how much free time I will have, but I have already tried to do couple of things to make my life easier with the scoreboard, so maybe, just maybe there won't be any issues with the stuff needed for the Grand Final, regardless of my real life commitments. If something unexpected comes up for me irl, you will get less "cultural posts", for example a shorter Opening Ceremony, but even in the worst case scenario I should be able to do the administrative side of the contest without any major delays.

    Finally, a sensible decision has been made in Australia! You can have whatever rules you'd like for regular people wanting to live there or tourists, but when you are organising a major sporting event with huge international participation, you have to make it possible for the athletes to compete.
     
    Spain don't recognize Kosovo, the whole country, the people's documents and passport's, nothing, yet they still allowed them to enter and play. Like i've said before, Australia should have made unvaccinated people take the 2 week quarantine and be tested every day, if they'd want, but but not directly stop them. Clear and cut decision, without any drama, but no, we had to make a spectacle. And now it backfired in their faces.
     
    As a Federer fan for 17 years, i never imagined a time, when i'd have to defend Djokovic, but this is not about him, but for the principle of competition and fairness.

    It is indeed bizarre how Austria is not having a full team. 9 places is really tight. If we do the count, they'd want 4 speedsters and 5 technicals. Secure places for me have Mayer, Kriechmayr and Striedinger in speed, and Feller, Schwarz, Brennsteiner in tech. Michael Matt should have been there as well, but his abysmal season so far has put a question mark for me. Beyond that, it could swing to different people and last minute decisions.

    Strolz gets the win  Not as iconic as Marc Berthod's win here in 2007, but still amongst the most surprising in the last decade+. Now this is a "problem" for Austrian federation, since they kicked him out of the national team.  And by Austrian rules, whoever gets a WC win, gets a place at the Olympics. They have some decisions on their hands now

    well I mostly write comments about sports I'm more informed about. but it doesn't mean I don't follow other sports. I just read others comments and learn from them. I love watching sports in general. major competitions though, not all the World Cups.
     
    if I'm not wrong since 2006 (the first time I watched the WOG) I didn't miss a single final. I think I'm more interested in Alpine, Biathlon, Figure skating, even Curling and Short Track
     
    the only winter sport I have hard time to enjoy is Ice Hockey (and maybe Nordic Combined, I don't know why that even exists) I tried to watch and like Ice hockey but it's just not my taste I still watch the gold medal match.
