All the Chair can do by rule is admonish the crowd to keep quiet. Thus, Kader couldn't do anything by rule to address the action by a few fans in the crowd that caused Simona to pause, then  lose match point. An unfitting ending indeed to a great match. #ed_op#/i#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#

Rybarikova in the semi... nice story but will root for Garbine.

The money raised from fines goes towards the Grand Slam Development Fund, which pays for tennis scholarships in developing countries. It was this system which produced Jelena Ostapenko, the unseeded Latvian player who went on to win the French Open this year.

Not just a nice story, but Rybarikova is playing the highest-quality grass-court tennis of anyone (18-1 record). She uses slice, drop shot, lob, exactly as they should be, on all dimensions of the court. Not a power player who mindlessly bashes from the baseline who runs hot and cold.
