Heather Watson just seemed to be in decline since her near-win 3rd rd match against Serena at Wimbledon 2015. That performance must've been an outlier.

It must really be hard losing in R1 Qualifiers. You gonna sit back watching your friends for the next 2 weeks, wishing you could be there.
I guess that should be enough motivation to hit the practice court to try to up your level so you can be in next slam's Main Draw.

Did you see how Vickery was cheated yesterday?? Up two match points and her opponent starts cramping and they allowed her to take a MTO under the guise she thought she pulled her quad!! Sascha lost the next four points and her chance to advance!!

Crazy!!

Apparently, Larcher de brito is now a real estate agent and tennis coach, though has not officially retired from the tour. Wow!

Rybakina through to the MD without losing a set.
Hopefully the last time in her career that she has to play the qualies of a slam...

If all goes well, she should be Top50 by the end of this season (currently #68).

I was wishing Australian beauty queen Fourlis would make it.
But today, she fell short. :(
There is no reason Rybakina should be playing Qualies here. The tournament cut-off system is old and obsolete. Glad she proved she is no longer an ITF player.
