how the hell did Gasquet beat Krecmanovic?
Just saw Safina post her favourites to take out the women's singles - she included Iga, Badosa, Coco and Kvitova.
I'm pretty certain she has absolutely no soft spot for Serena -and I'm sure this is all because of the Rome and Madrid comment...
Lol. That comment cut deep (but was accurate). However, picking Serena to win is a sentimental choice and not an objective one. That's why Dinara didn't pick Serena from a professional pov. I doubt she is still.festering over a press conference joke.
Serena has a better chance than BADOSA lol
🍿 matches tomorrow (in no particular order)
-Azarenka vs Kostyuk 👀
-Muguruza vs Fruhvirtova
-Coric vs Brooksby
-Serena/Venus doubles 🥺
When’s the next time Iga can lose the top ranking? Feels like the rest of the tour is so far behind her
I think if she does not maintain a high level at the clay season next year, she might lose it. Her current form is not that great but she doesn’t have many points to defend until next year.
who's taking it away. number 2 loses first or second round every slam. not happening
The rankings are a bit messy currently. Annett does not deserve to be second in the ranking. But I think Ons or Coco can do it if they improve. Coca can have a breakout year like Iga this year. And in the case of ons, I can see her gaining lots of points next year. She didn’t play AO this year and started slow as she was back from an injury. She can gain lots of points there. In the clay season, she did well and have many points to defend but she lost in the first round in RG after that. If she goes far in the slams and perform like this year in Wimbledon, she will gain +3000 points compared to this year. Combine that with Iga loosing some points, the gap will be a lot closer. That said I’m not saying this will definitely happen but I can see it happening. Iga is not unbeatable and I have a feeling that players have figured out how to stop her in the last couple of months so she needs to adjust.
> I think if she does not maintain a high level at the clay season next year, she might lose it.
It could happen, but I would be beyond stunned.
Wta world number 3 slam results this year R4-R2-R3-R2
Is Serena the oldest player to win against a top 3 player now?
Must be the oldest to do everything in singles draw ...except for myabe Navratilova
Today’s upsets (based on ranking and form)
-Moutet over BVDZ
-Draper over FAA
-Wang over Sakkari (although I thought she’d lose to T. Maria in R1)
-Krunic over Krejcikova (although she’s been really poor since injury)
Andreescu over BHM is a maybe but Bianca plays well at the USO. Cachin over Holt is the choke/abysmal match quality of the day.
Oh Stef cursed both himself and Maria
Francis Tiafoe made the extraordinary claim that Kyrgios deserved to defeat Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final.
When asked if an unseeded or underdog player could be crowned champion in New York, the American instead focused on Kyrgios in his reply.
“I say it straight out I think [Kyrgios] should’ve won Wimbledon,” he said.
“I think he was the better player in that final. Novak mentally, he got exposed. That’s where the experience kicked in for Novak. I think tennis-wise Nick played a better match.”
I felt the experience really told in that tiebreak too. It's amazing how close the match was at the end considering the deficit in big match records between them.
I don't know what Tiafoe means when he says that Djokovic got exposed mentally. That sounds like a glib thing to say with little basis.
It’s not even like Nick had a million BP’s and just didn’t convert, the man wasn’t touching Novak’s serve for nearly every game the last 3 sets.
The WTA world number 2 player did not manage a single 3rd round of a Slam in 2022. R2-R1-R2-R2
This is what happens when your ranking is inflated by reason of happy accident.
Apart from Iga, everyone else in the WTA top 10 just making up numbers by pure luck. They all get exposed eventually.
pegula to me is a true top 10 player, even though she hasn't won anything.
a lot of the other girls rankings are inflated for reaching wta finals last year. i think they give out too many points just for qualifying for that tournament
Ons is good
Funnily, Kontaveit may still be #2 after USO in a scenario where :
\- Badosa doesn't reach QF
\- Jabeur doesn't reach SF
\- Pegula doesn't reach the final
\- Sabalenka, Gauff or Muguruza don't win the USO
It won't last much though, too much points to defend, she's only #14 in the Race (maybe 15-16 after the USO).
Mugurza is NOT winning anything anytime soon
I thought she would lose all her matches at the wta finals but she ended up winning that lol.
Kontaveit must be secretly thankful she didn't reach #1 earlier this year, because it wouldn't be hard to see what the comments would be like if that were the case
Anyone remember when shapo said to faa "we will meet in multiple slam finals"
Those were the days, now FAA looks like a top 20 type and shapo looks to be top 50.
Maybe he was talking about the senior tour.
Dogs allowed in the stadium !? What if it (he or she) barks?
Coco has her own credentials lol, and most stadiums apparently allow dogs.
No she’s a good dog
Borna Coric vs Jenson Brooksby, interested to see who you guys got 👀. Technically if Coric plays anywhere near the level he did in Cincy I like him to blitz the Brookinator. Trying to figure out who it’s a better match up for is quite perplexing for me though, Perhaps Brooksby as he won’t need to generate his own pace as much, and his peculiar game might actually give him the edge. I still see Coric winning, unless he hits a wall physically, which all things considered, may be very possible. Curious to see how you guys have it going down. Jenson Brooksby is the betting favourite, which I’m not sure I agree with.
My brain: this match is a coin flip
My heart: Brooksby is going to crush Coric because God is dead
Ćorić - in straights.
Brooksby because the power of the dark side is unlimited.
That could be 50/50. Brooksby has massive US support.
I'd give the slight edge to Brooksby considering the last couple of matches, but this is as close as a 50/50 split as you can get
Bibi seems so happy and positive in her interview aw
Sort of misleading scoreline but nonetheless Andreescu earned the win. Hopefully Bia can bounce back and end the season on a high note.
I don't think Bibi can get past Garcia with the way she is serving right now
I think she deliberately took something off the first serve to up the % and avoid getting her 2nd serve punished. IDK how well it'll work against Garcia. Caro was eating up serves from well inside the baseline at Cincy. Bianca must be confident in her ability to hang in enough points without winning many free ones on serve.
Bianca can definitely hang in rallies with garcia, the question is whether she can win most of them. Bianca can also return garcia’s serves very well. Agree with you on bianca’s serve these days though, its been trash since she returned.
She seems to have made a conscious change since Toronto. There, she couldn't buy a first serve and paid the price. Tonight she decided to just make a ton of em. We'll see which gameplan shows up Friday!
Also, she seems to have made a change re pinpoint-v-platform stance. Not sure exactly when... gotta check the archives!
Bibi's got game ! She brought her A game
Bianca is a dark horse to win it all
bianca beat beatriz
beatriz beat belinda
belinda beat bianca
all is fair and balanced in the haim sisters of the wta
Getting home to an FAA L and Bianca W was not expected, but I'll take it
Clever game. Totally moved her opponent out of her wheelhouse.
Wow. I felt like Bianca had a shot here but I did not have 2-and-4 on my bingo card!
woot Go Bibi!
Yasss congrats to bibi and her straight set win. At least canada got a win today
We got two, actually, with Marino also advancing on the women's side too.
Actually it’s tommies
Match point for Andreescu ! Canada needs something tonight. And they get it.. Crowd loves it !! Big cheers
Come on you can't return that to the net Bia
Bianca was never losing this match. A whole different level of player today
COME ON!! 30 ALL
Am i going nuts or has a truck been backing up for 20 minutes straight in the background? Drive forward my guy its quicker
and it's fking mid might god America doesn't have any moral standards or rules
Bianca serves BHM commits two UE's for free
Clever girl BIB!! YEAH!!!
Always thought it was funny to see Andreescu crouch on some balls, which I never see from others and seems like poor technique. But never really puts her in a bad spot
Use your variety Andreescu !!!!
Triple.... SLICE ! Eat these slices of (tennis and pizza) 30-15 now
I don’t like BHM chances if she doesn’t break here
The break is bound to happen now. Witness.
BHM is crumbling under the pressure. So many easy chances to break and she chokes
Andreescu is serving for the match. Can she do it?
Bibi serving for the Match plssss let's finish it
Please no drama from the queen!!
come on BHM i want to see a three setter lol. Too many UE's tho from her
HM : I will punish the ball
Too inconsistent from Haddad Maia here
6 double faults
Bianca missing the toss a lot, isn't she?
C’mon Bianca..1 more
What fucking noise is this?
Haha, I muted the broadcast twice and went outside thinking it was something going on in my alley, how the hell is that coming through in a giant stadium like that!?
truck according to the commentator but I also hear sirens I don't know it's pretty chaotic
This match is kinda delivering
Is someone driving a forklift around Louis Armstrong?
It seems to be indeed a forklift
Brazilians Big support for Haddad Maia. Andreescu saves, Canada likes !
Sounds like bia screams hey it’s annoying tho
Love seeing streaks of 2019 era bibi in this game
BHM playing awful
Canada happy (well somewhat for now)
Atta girl Bibi!
Awful games by BHM. had like 4 break points. commit UE's and now just go down 0-40 and get broken
Canada needs something tonight !
Any Haddad Maia fans here?
Here, I'm brazilian, still rooting and believing until the last point. Come on Bia!!
triple break point now for andreescu. would be such a steal of a set if she goes up a break here
Andreescu gets the break !
god i hate BHM’s grunt. like a spartan war cry
Wonderful touch DTL by Andreescu. She seems to be somewhat in the zone. And a double fault from Haddad ! Can she recover. Bianca gets the break
oh my god, the high pitched beeping sound in the andreescu match is fuckin maddening
New York I guess, but I agree with you
BHM missing every single forehand when she has the clear advantage in so many points come on
Bia is like completely unclutch and then you have Bibi just going after that ball at deuce. Bia is gonna have to dig deeper to convert her chances because the misses are just so not it.
I’m curious to see what Serena’s record is as an underdog, line wise.
This could be 6-0, Bianca really hanging by the ropes here
And yet…4-3 with service
Get it Bianca!
These screams in the WTA are nothing short of absolutely pathetic. For real
Sounds like the last sound the seal makes before the polar bear gets it.
Do you bring the same energy for ATP when the men scream and grunt too?
It's fking awesome
Haddad should’ve broken 3 times this set but she’s just making terrible decisions
Only thing BHM breaks are the rules
Shut up ..at least she’s not a doper
You shut up and watch the game without attacking the players
This set is really on Maia's racket.
Is Maia actually the better player. Look at Andreescu go !
Haddad Maia is quite good !! Can she break here. Stay tough Bianca. A huge come on from her ! The crowd is aroused. Solid hold.
BHM is inside the court to return Bibi's 1st serve and almost in the middle of the court to return her 2nd. lol
Bibi girl we don't need this to go to a third set
Prediction for Murray-Berrettini 3R Match ??
I'd slightly lean Berrettini. I'd expect a long match and I'm worried about how Andy will hold up.
Matteo has defeated Andy only on Grass
They’ve had one hard court match. 3 years ago.
Yes in Beijing 2019 Murray won that match in straight sets
Which is a small sample size, was before Berrettini evolved into the player he was today, and was best of 3.
Murray may win, but that match tells us nothing.
Yeah anything can happen basically expecting a good match might be a 5-Set Epic who knows
That one should be a 50/50.
Hello Brazil fans at the US Open !! (they wave)
I'm manifesting this new 2nd set Bianca who still has a letdown but manages to stay on serve
Hadad Maia is built like an Amazoness. A chance here potentially for Bianca. Canada needs something tonight
bibi's KAMAAAAAN hits different hahaha
Beatriz should've broken her by now. Hopefully she can keep the pressure on.
BiBi and Serena in the final again? Lol
Bianca need to get pass Garcia first which I don't think is very realistic
Semi, but yeah, wow
They are in the same half so no
Haddad Maia is soooo loud but so am I when I play tennis 🙃
Haddad Maia of Brazil has earned a lot of reputation recently. Can she show her stuff and do her thing. Brazilians are present in the crowd, here and there.
Great hold by Bianca.
Andreescu is getting hype ! Canada needs something tonight. Must hold here. She holds.
Did espn just end coverage even tho Bianca is still playing
They don't show Armstrong on the main channel. It's on ESPN2 sometimes but not tonight.
ESPN3 (via their app)
What a beautiful backhand
Who's rooting for Haddad Maia and who's rooting for Andreescu?
Uh oh C’mon Bianca
Nice win. Loved that he was trying some different things in the end when it was clear he was going to win.
Medvedev has a great personality, I can see him having a ton more fans in the future once the big 3 officially retire.
Med laying on some charm in this interview
Haddad is making terrible decisions on simple points
Meddy > small kid
I wanted that semi to happen so badly
They’re just like Fedal, never gonna meet at the USO 💔
they already met at the uso
Yes, as small kids. Not as tennis big kids like they’re now
Medvedev’s match was shorter than Serena’s lol
Clinical performance from meddy
Will Kyrgios get by JJ Wolf? That is the question.
PCB vs De Minaur. Draper vs Khachanov. Those are all coming up in this section of the draw.
Rinderknech didn't even bother with the final shot, lol.
Bibi vs Bia is a high quality match
Bianca playing like a Slam Champion now wth
Meddy goes for the SABR ! He advances to the 3rd round. Good stuff from him. Excellent performance the commentators say. Applauses for both, and for Rinderknech.
Your favorite player struggles with routine early round matches? Couldn’t imagine
A brilliant shot by the Octopus ! It's match point. Crowd cheers
I love bibis COME ANNNN
Imagine Bibi vs Danimal with both healthy
Don't like these doping comments.
I'm not for it but the regulatory body has judged it and she is playing all legit now.
We need to move on from people's mistakes.
yeah, and she has a lot of friends in the tour. BHM is a nice girl. Zhang Shuai said a lot of nice things about BHM in the trophy ceremony when they played a final 2 months ago, for helping her in UK when the chinese couldn't practice.
Who are you referring to?
Medvedev holds to go up 5-3.
Was looking online to see if I can get Medvedev's shirt. No luck, anyone do the same?
Did the scoreboard miss a point on the Medvedev match
Nice that Serena won, she’s a great player but in the interview absolutely NO mention about her opponent, didn’t even mention her name, same thing happened with her last match. What about a little respect for the opponent???
Come on Rinderknech you can do better than this.
Isner withdrew with a wrist injury. Holger Rune won't have to play tomorrow. He moves to R3.
Not very Jaaa money of Isner
dunno why, but I am smelling one of those classic bianca second sets meltdown dramas here.
C'mon, that hasn't happened in, um... 2 days
Why is it I feel like this news wasn't meant to be leaked to the media lol
Amazing news!!!! I love Dasha.
Kostyuk didn't want to play on the charity event just because Azarenka would be there. Now they will play tomorrow 11 AM on Round 2. Spicy.
