I would assume this is the last year for the Williams sisters, I'll assume they'll do their swansong at this years US open with Wimbledon being the last chance for 24.

I'm hoping they might play some doubles too. I'm not sure how Olympics qualification works but I'd be good to see them there together, or if not, wimby and US.

She is capable of getting 24, but I don't see it happening with her game at the moment, she's never seemed underpowered, but today she really seemed underpowered.
Brady with a 3-1 lead in the decider... I don't think she can trouble Naomi, wake the hell up Kaja!

On her fifth match point Brady gets it. Muchova was too passive in the third although understandable after all the marathon matches she's had to pull through. The few times she went up to the net were glorious though and if she was match fit I think the outcome would have been different.
Venus said "goodbye Australia, see you next year" on her Instagram.

I think the last chance to win anything more of significance passed her by in 2017, but well done to her for following her own path and not allowing anyone but herself to dictate when it's time to go.
Not the worst final we've seen on the women's side, but certainly no classic - I feel like we hardly saw them both play well at the same time. All credit to Brady for managing to make a contest out of the second set though, it looked like Naomi was going to stroll through after she won the first one.

Still, well done to a deserving winner. You can see from that acceptance speech how far she's come in terms of her confidence. Now, time to step up on grass and clay!
4/4 in Slam finals now. The match itself was rather anti-climatic as Jennifer could have taken the first set as well but she blinked twice and out the window it went.

Those rankings adjustments really can't come soon enough though. Ash, with her lone 2019 FO still being 1300 points ahead of Naomi, who owns two of the last played slams is just a farce.
The inherent privilege in being anti-vaccine (and if you can afford tickets to the final of a Grand Slam, I think it's fair to assume you're not in the poor house) makes my blood boil.
I still can't believe Sumyk held on to his job for so long after that Wimbledon win. The difference in her mentality and composure that fortnight was jaw-dropping stuff.

It was a huge win for Conchita Martinez as well, steering her charge to the second major title that always eluded her in her own career. Given that Conchita had to play in the peak Graf/Seles years (check how many times she sailed through a draw only to run into one of them) and Garbiñe is competing in an era that's still essentially a free-for-all, you can easily see their partnership bearing more fruit.
