https://www.theguardian.com/sport/commentisfree/2022/mar/23/ash-barty-redefined-what-sporting-success-looks-like-as-quality-not-quantity

Great article on it.   I'm sure she will go and play another sport to a super high standard because she can and she enjoys it.   Amazing human being.

Yeah, think she has life sussed to be fair.  Has worked hard, earned a lot and is just doing what she likes.

Jack Draper has won today and has Norrie next.  Probably not ideal for either, but will be a good test for Draper.

Draper/Norrie is scheduled for 3pm today.

Did anyone see the Raducanu match?  She had so many opportunities to win it and so many break points she didn't win.  Was as frustrating a match as I have seen in some time.  Watson seemed to do the opposite, in winning when she looked beaten, but didn't see much of that one as the games clashed.

Yeah, wasn't expecting him to beat Medvedev.  Still 2 tough games to come for Hurkacz.  Likely Alcaraz and Ruud.   Problem is if Alcaraz wins then his top 10 isn't likely to last long!

he will be top 10 before the end of April

looking at Norrie's last match he might be taking a week of 2 off to recover not sure who and what points people are defending over April but there is 3 1000s before the french lots of points to play for

Did you see this a couple of days ago.   Would be good to see him win a slam and get to number one before Zverev.

Norrie clinging on to that number 10 spot, though not convincingly.  Luckily, Alcaraz seems to be having a little wobble too.

Think Radacanu has a really good draw in Stuttgart.  Two players outside the top 100 to warm up then Swiatek.  So she can get some good practice in on clay, and then hopefully she cam give Swiatek a good game.  Today's oppo is dangerous on clay,  so it isn't a gimme.

Barca's seedings is pretty much spot on 7th seed didnt line up but the rest of the top 8 are through  along with the 10th seed

Alcaraz just needs to last 1 more round than Norrie to climb him but Norrie

Jack Draper gets a wild card into Madrid with Andy Murray, must be nice when players in the 40-50 world ranking range are having to go through qualifying

Dunno, he has won 4 challengers this  year, they think he is box office and he probably is.  Can't be many with more points than him in the ATP race this year in qualifying?  And who are more promising? They might be wrong, but can see why they are giving him a wild card. 

Also tired of people moaning about Murray wild cards, he'd be top 50 without the injuries and these top 100 journeymen aren't putting bums on seats like he does.  Kyrgios gets wild cards too, because he is box office too.

Can't see any 40-60 players in qualifying that I'd watch over those three.

Was just watching the match and the commentator brought up his wildcard with some Spanish players having the nose out of joint over this but it was explained as the sponsors had the rights to giving out the wildcards not the home nations tennis federation.

Andy earnt his wildcard to any event he wants to play in the next 10 years. Didn't Ivanisevic get a wild card into wimbledon the year he won and he hadn't nearly as successful a career as Andy in an era without the big 3 players.  Andy was going to miss out the whole of the clay court season but is playing here and Rome but still planning on missing the French.

Carnage in Madrid.  If Ons Jabeur gets knocked out tomorrow, then Raducanu will be the highest ranked player left in.  She played really well today too.

I looked the other day.  Seems like he is getting fit enough by his Instagram, but couldn't see anything reliable on his state of health or comeback dates.   We could have 5 in the top 100 men if he does get back.  Maybe even Broady too?  Don't know how long since we have had 5.
