I looked at potential R2 matches, and that resulted in no less than 13 matches (out of 16) that would be well worth to watch. We could get:
Pliskova vs Pav's
Kerber vs Vekic/Bouchard
Putintseva vs Kvitova
Cibulkova vs Safarova
Makarova vs Konta
Svitolina vs Kasatkina (finally back in action - both of them)
Siniakova vs Venus
Vesnina vs Dodin/Barty
Konjuh vs Muguruza
Kuzzy vs Bellis
Garcia vs Ostapenko
Mladenovic vs Gavrilova
Keys vs Halep

There goes my fmKO-opportunity (Halep)...

If you cannot play two events in a row when you win the first, then PLEASE do not bother entering an International or a Premier the week before a major event.

lol at Lepchenko. She allowed Ostapenko to come back from 2-5 down in the 3rd to win.

What can one say, Grav'? These girls today aren't capable of playing back-to-back events after reaching the final of the previous event. 95% of the time they'll either lose, withdraw or retire ere or in the lst match of the next week. Happens oft.....

Vee won but she's still losing weight. She's so skinny.

After being inactive for more than a month (hopefully she managed to recover from all her injury issues), Kasatkina started with a close 7-6 7-6 win vs Vinci. Back on the right track.

Next two matches are Svitolina and (likely) Venus.
And if she would get through, then it could be QF Muguruza, SF Halep, F Pliskova

Not gonna happen, I know, :-)
