    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
  7. Overall:
  • Criterion 1a - prose
    • Lead section: "In doubles events," should be "In the doubles events," as you're talking about specific doibles events.
      • Done
    • Tournament section: "a joint event between Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and Women's Tennis Association" --> "a joint event between the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and the Women's Tennis Association"
      • Done
    • Tournament section: "was part of 2009 ATP World Tour and 2009 WTA Tour" --> "was part of the 2009 ATP World Tour and the 2009 WTA Tour"
      • Done
    • Tournament section: "Both men's and women's singles draws consisted of 96 players and doubles draws consisted of 32 teams" --> "Both the men's and women's singles draws consisted of 96 players and the doubles draws consisted of 32 teams"
      • Done
    • 2009 Sony Ericsson Open#Players section: "47 of World top 50 male players" --> "47 of the top 50 male players in the ATP rankings". Also, once reworded, link ATP ranking here if possible.
      • Done
    • Players section: "matches in the last tournament, 2009 BNP Paribas Open." --> "matches in the last tournament, the 2009 BNP Paribas Open."
      • Changed
    • Players section: "12 players progressed from qualifying draws to main draw" --> "12 players progressed from the qualifying draws to the main draw"
      • Changed
    • Men's singles section: "seed Fernando Verdasco winning 200th ATP tour match of his career" --> "seed Fernando Verdasco winning his 200th ATP tour match in his career"
      • Changed
    • Men's singles section: "Albert Montanes suffered a hamstring injury during second set of the match" - does this mean Montanes retired from the match? Needs to be made clearer.
      • Added words for clarification
    • Men's singles section: "former World no. 1 Marat Safin in the third round match " --> "former World no. 1 Marat Safin in a third round match"
      • Done
    • Men's singles section: "defeated Dent in the fourth round to set a quarterfinal rematch" --> "defeated Dent in the fourth round to set up a quarterfinal rematch". Also a rematch from what? The previous year's event?
      • Done; changed "match" to "rematch"
    • Men's singles section: "match to enter first ATP Masters semifinal of his career." --> "match to enter first the ATP Masters semifinal of his career."
      • Done but slightly reworded
    • You use both "tiebreak" and "tie-breaker" throughout the article. I think picking one and being consistent would be best.
      • Done
    • Men's singles section: "Murray faced Verdasco in second quarterfinal" --> "Murray faced Verdasco in the second quarterfinal"
    • Done
    • Men's singles section: "Verdasco suffered an injury in the second game of the match" - did he have a doctor or physio called on court? If he did, mention it.
      • Done
    • Men's singles section: "Djokovic and Murray appeared in their seventh and fourth Masters final and 19th and 17th career finals." - I take this means respectively? Add respectively to the end of the sentence if this correct.
      • Done
    • Men's singles section: "Djokovic led head-to-head tally" --> "Djokovic led the head-to-head tally"
      • Done
    • Men's singles section: According to wiktionary, thereon means "on that". So the sentence "Djokovic improved his serve thereon" means "Djokovic improved his serve on that", which doesn't make sense. Reword please.
      • Reworded - hopefully makes sense now
    • Men's singles section: "A role reversal in the second set meant Djokovic leading 4–1." --> "A role reversal in the second set meant that Djokovic led 4–1."
      • Done
    • Women's singles section: "including third seed Jelena Jankovic defeated by Gisela Dulko" --> "including third seed Jelena Jankovic who was defeated by Gisela Dulko"
      • Done
    • Women's singles section: "fought hard for a place in quarterfinal," --> "fought hard for a place in the quarterfinals,"
      • Done
    • Women's singles section: "Kuznetsova looked good to win the match in straight sets after building a 6–4, 5–2 lead. But Wozniacki fought back to win the second set on tie-breaker" - combine into one sectence; also "but" should never be used to start a sentence.
      • Changed and reworded
    • Women's singles section: "defeated Samantha Stosur 6–1, 6–0 in second quarterfinal" --> "defeated Samantha Stosur 6–1, 6–0 in the second quarterfinal"
      • Changed
    • Mens' doubles section: "along with third seed Mahesh Bhupathi – Mark Knowles losing to French duo Julien Benneteau – Jo-Wilfried Tsonga" --> "along with third seeds Mahesh Bhupathi – Mark Knowles, who lost to French duo Julien Benneteau – Jo-Wilfried Tsonga"
      • Done
    • Mens' doubles section: "continued their progress to third round" --> "continued their progress to the third round"
      • Done
    • Mens' doubles section: I think there are some words missing in this sentence --> " Julian Knowle – Jurgen Melzer who triumphed Almagro – Ferrer"
      • Added missing words
    • Mens' doubles section: "Bryan brothers, who were defending champions" should be "The Bryan brothers, who were the defending champions". Ensure all mentions of "Bryan brothers" have a "the" before it.
      • Done
    • Mens' doubles section: "were the other teams making it into the semifinals" --> "were the other teams who made it into the semifinals" - keep consistency of past tense.
      • Done
    • Mens' doubles section: "encountered a much harder competition" - remove the "a"
      • Removed "a"
    • Women's doubles section: "top seed", "Eighth seed", etc, should be plural, i.e. "top seeds", "Eighth seeds", as it's a double pairing and plural.
      • Done
    • Women's doubles section: "and Kveta Peschke – Lisa Raymond, only seeded team left in the draw" --> "and Kveta Peschke – Lisa Raymond, the only seeded team left in the draw"
      • Done
    • Women's doubles section: "to enter third final as a team" --> "to enter their third final as a team"
      • Done
    • Women's doubles section: "to secure second spot in the final" --> "to secure the second spot in the final"
      • Done
    • One more thing, in the headings, why is it "Mens' doubles" but "Women's doubles"?
      • Changed
  • Criterion 2b - MOS
    • 2009 Sony Ericsson Open#Players section: is there any link for "seed"?
    • Is writing the names of the doubles partners like "Marina Erakovic – Tiantian Sun" standard?
      • I'm not sure because there are currently very few tennis articles as GA or FA. I feel it cuts out the need for high numbers of "ands" and I can't think of another way of showing the information.
  • Criterion 2a - references
    • A number of references are dead and need to be fixed or replaced. See [1]
  • Criterion 3a - broad
    • The thing that struck me as I readin through the article is that there's no mention of revenue, crowd size or anything like that. Also there's nothing about whether the event was televised, and if it was, what kind of viewership did it get? I realise that this information may not be available, but it'd be nice to see some sort of info about it if at all possible.
      • Managed to find some of this info
  • Criterion 4 - neutrality
    • Men's singles section: "could not fight Murray to the fullest." - is this a quote or opinion? If it is opinion, I think a quote from Verdasco about the injury would be a nice addition to the section, if it's possible.
      • Reworded the section as I can't find a quote - there may be one already in the reference
    • Men's singles section: "A gritty Murray"
      • Removed "gritty"
  • Overall comments
    • I am placing this article on hold for seven days to allow you to fix the problems listed so far. If the work is completed before then, I will pass the article before the seven days are up. If no attempts are made to correct the problems, I will fail the article in seven days. If you are not finished, I have no problem in extending the hold period to allow you to finish, as long as I see work is being carried out on the article.
    • To make it easier for me to see how much work has been done, please either strike each comment when the problem has been fixed or post a note underneath each item saying it is completed.
    • Feel free request to clarification on anything; you can leave comments on my talk page or here, as I have this page watchlisted.

  • Note: I was involved in the initial research for the article and am now a joint collaborator, if I can also be credited. 03md 10:59, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for taking on the review. I was planning to leave a message at the tennis wikiproject if User:LeaveSleaves did not begin editing again. It's looking good so far. Once the dead links in the references are replaced ([2]), I will do a final readthrough. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 23:28, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
These are really annoying. The ATP decided to revamp their website a couple of weeks ago, just after these references had been added, and all the web addresses changed. I am almost finished with sorting them out. 03md 00:29, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, the usual week for a hold period is up, however, good progress has been made on the article. As long as the last dead links are replaced soon, I am content to let this review continue. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 10:02, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
That was hard work. I had to replace some of the links with reports from other sites, but had to remove most of the ATP doubles references as they don't seem to have been transferred to the system. There are no more dead links. 03md 14:47, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Excellent job. Final readthrough on the way. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 15:18, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Final readthrough[edit]

  • Lead: "and also first to win from their respective countries" --> "and also the first to win from their respective countries".
  • Men's singles: "Verdasco suffered an injury in the second game of the match and had to be seen by his physio" - by physio, do you mean physiotherapist? Use the full term, and wikilink if possible.
  • Women's singles: "Serena appearing in her third consecutive final at the event having won last two instances" --> "Serena appearing in her third consecutive final at the event, having won on the last two occasiona".
  • Women's singles: "Azarenka dominated the final match with Serena playing while nursing a leg injury." --> "Azarenka dominated the final match, as Serena was playing while nursing a leg injury."
  • Viewership: For me, reference 54 [3] redirects to [4] and doesn't contain any info. I don't if it's just a typo or the page was taken down. However, I found this link and this link which I think between them covers a lot of the info in the section.
That's it. Once these are fixed I'll pass the article. Excellent job so far. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 15:38, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
All done. Thanks. 03md 15:50, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Wow, that was fast! Excellent job. Congratulations, this article is now passed. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 15:56, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Dead links[edit]

Are links considered dead if they are archived within the citation? There's probably about 5 or 6 refs that have an archive link but are marked dead links. --DJB3.14 (talk) 15:52, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
