Who's idea was it to put Zverev in a white vest?
I don’t care when or where, but I want Sloane to have another run, not for the tour, not for fans, but just for herself at this point. I’ve been against using the word ‘deserve’ in this thread, but she’s getting close to deserve territory.
Erm, what?I’d like to see how well anyone who loses three relatives to the pandemic in close proximity performs their job, let alone someone who competes in a public forum. Frankly, I’m not going to be told I’m wrong for having sympathy towards another person.
My girl and favorite nutcase Sorana took out Petra today!
So in typical fashion she will probably go out 2-6 1-6 or something against Vondrousova next but still a great win for her! With both Petra and Bianca out, the fifth section of the draw is wide open now for either Cirstea, Hsieh, Venus or Vondrousova to reach the quarterfinals.
It’s not going to be Venus, based on the thumping Errani is giving her at the moment...
Simona just isn't a main favorite this year at the Australian Open and that's fine. Her 2020 was great through and through but her losses, as few as they were, have only highlighted what we already knew, she can be easily blown off the court by a power hitter on a good day. Swiatek, Sabalenka, Muguruza last year and Alexandrova this week all played what they had to play against Simona, relentlessly attacking the lines.
Stan losing like that was an absolute gutpunch, so very glad Simona pulled it out somehow. Is it just me, or has she not been hitting the ball as hard as usual? I'm not expecting her to hit Serena winners, but she can still hit a bit deeper than what she's doing so far.
I think Kyrgios fighting through against Humbert makes a refreshing change, but I'll believe it's the start of greater things when I see it, and not a minute sooner.
