People continue to underestimate JO's go for broke potential. She can sustain it far longer than most.

oh it was a DF.. on Break point.
It's all about Venus' serve. If her serve deserts her, she is in trouble. otherwise, she'll do fine.

After getting broken by Venus, she stepped up and is doing nothing wrong...

Ostapenko leading 4-3.... What a service game!

Ostapenko is the last lady left for my skan.
If she wins, I am OK.. but I have given up today.. I think I am going down to 2 male players only.

As they say, JO is on a magic carpet ride at the moment with no one pressuring her to win. She can just swing and see.

That's her game. she always swings freely no matter the day.
she's not on some magic carpet. With Ostapenko, you always know what you are getting. She stands and delivers fearlessly, win or lose.
