Gives some good figures about how good Rublev's year was. One good showing at a slam and he can be talked about as a serious contender (right now, he is a contender in the second tier).

Does it sound like the current #ATP Players Council is focused on Players? Compare their letter to Djokovic or Pospisil's from today: who seems to prioritize whom?

So Jane's proof that the current Players Council is NOT working for the players is that it uses the word MANAGEMENT five times? It also uses the word PLAYERS or PLAYERS ASSOCIATION 13 times.
And I am confused. The second letter seems NOT to be from Novak or Pospisil. It seems to be signed by Anderson, Roger, Merlzer, Rafa, Querrey and somebody else.

I am not understanding.

Adobe will end support of Flash Player on December 31, 2020, something that's been known for about a year if not longer. The ATP developed an App. The ITF has developed an App. The WTA wants you to use it's crappy website.

The best frigging app to keep scores, it was that simple. Too bad it will be gone.
I know women get a rough deal in many occasions. In almost ALL occasions. But for tennis players, sometimes the WTA really seems to be more of a ball and chain, and not the organization to help them. Is the website any good on a smartphone?

The website is so bad on my laptop I can't imagine it'll be good on a smartphone.

I just tried it. I can't even find the live scores (I know, there are no tournaments now, but then it should be like the ATP/WTA app: "No Tournaments being played").
