Not Before 12:30 PM

2 WS308 SASNOVICH, Aliaksandra (BLR) vs GARCIA, Caroline (FRA) [8]

3 MS313 BENNETEAU, Julien (FRA) vs FOGNINI, Fabio (ITA) [25]

4 MS314 BERDYCH, Tomas (CZE) [19] vs DEL POTRO, Juan Martin (ARG) [12]

Show Court 2 - 11:00 AM

1 MD209 MURRAY, Jamie (GBR)/SOARES, Bruno (BRA) [5] vs PAES, Leander (IND)/RAJA, Purav (IND)

2 MS310 MARTERER, Maximilian (GER) vs SANDGREN, Tennys (USA)

3 WS303 PERA, Bernarda (USA) vs STRYCOVA, Barbora (CZE) [20]

Show Court 3

4 Fucsovics, Marton (HUN) v Kicker, Nicolas (ARG)


Excellent slate for tomorrow (not listing doubles for the most part, plus the beginning of boys and girls draws) and good weather (temps in the low 80's). Further, elated that Naomi's match with Ashleigh begins at a reasonable time here in the Midwest, tho' Angie's match with Pova is slated to start at 2 a.m. here, prime time for Melbourne . Won't see it. Duly hoping that Angie prevails.

My viewing:

Madison v Bogdan
Lucie v Karoline
Naomi and Ashleigh

Want to see some of Del Potro's match with Tomas, but it conflicts with Naomi's.

Hope Naomi is not too affected by the pro Ashleigh crowd, for the house will be packed. Expecting a close match, nevertheless, Naomi prevailing.

Rod Laver Arena has five matches worth staying up for....#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#Unfortunately, the two I want to see the most, are the ones that are least convenient for Europeans: Chung vs Zverev and Barty vs Osaka#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#The first one starts at 1 am, so that is doable, and the two last ones are in the morning... But match #2 and #3 are not an option....#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#

Davis seems to be having brain cramps on important points and easy points. She's making so many silly errors and not playing smartly. Halep isn't playing amazing, just solid. She's trying to draw errors and get back many errors. But Davis can't put the ball away (even on sitters).

OK, I'm calling BS on Halep's "ankle injury". There's no way that she's still playing and moving like this with an ankle problem.
