    Pretty much. If you include the year-end finals, the women's and men's tours end in late October and late November. You'll still have some ITF and Challenger events available during the off-season. You also have the Fed Cup and Davis Cup finals in November, but players aren't obligated to compete in those, and they only last 3 days, so it's not really taxing.

    She was washed as ****. It was time to go.

    It makes what Buzarnescu has been able to do over the past year and half even more impressive.

    Her style was very taxing on the body plus she got married and wanted to have kids.

    Who are you guys picking for the women's final, Kvitova seems to have come back strong now after being stabbed in her left hand couple years ago from an intruder in her apartment. I got a feeling she wins it

    Rocky II status type match. I want the interviews to be conducted while they are lying down on the court.

    that demeanor change in the 3rd set. killer mentality

    b2b slams and a world #1 by the age of 21.

    60-0 when winning the 1st set.

    great match. the comebacks osaka had in this tourney and all the tight 3 setters is gonna help her future success so much. you can't teach that championship mentality.

    great to see petra make it all the back too.

    Well done Osaka. Also very happy for Petra and the progress she's making coming back to the game.
