Petra K. loses to Kris Pliskova in 3. Didn't see this match 'til the end (last 2 games), Petra on the rebound from a 5-1 defecit, only to belly up on Kris' service to win by blowing makeable balls to lose. Typical......

Taylor loses to Vesnina in 2. Asha Rolle 2.0......

When Kvitova is in the top 10, one should always pick her as fmKO; in 2015 or 2016, she was the top10’player with most losses in her first match... and she still delivers... thank you for the points, Petra!

Gonna try somehow to see Bertens vs Stollar this evening. #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#I know that this hungarian teenager won Wimbledon doubles a junior, and yesterday she defeated Konta.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#About time to have a good look at her game.

 Kvitova never been good on clay.. so no surprise.
The top-10 take turn losing their first match. We just have to pick the right one each week. :)
I got Wozniacki in Miami. Didn't Muguruza lose her first match at IW? and before that it was another top-10 ... Next week it's gonna be a different one.

Errani drove Buzarnescu crazy and beat her... lol.. Towards the end, the Romanian could barely walk. She was so exhausted. :)

Not surprised at all by the loss of Osaka and Barty... it is clay, remember.

Expect even lesser poorer results for both on the slower red clay... But they'll be back on grass or during the US HC season.

I don't think a top player will win RG this year.

Agree. Serena is not a top player. May your statement come true. :)

Clean win by Kasatkina: beating Begu on clay 6-2 6-1 is a statement... I totally can see her defend her title here.#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#Goerges in the QF is probably her toughest opponent that is left in the draw. #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#So if you look for a top player winning RG: think Kasatkina! :-)#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#Edit: and guess what: I actually had the audacity to predict this beating correctly in hte PGame... predicted 6-2 6-1... now THAT is what you call "knowing your fave" hehehe...#ed_op#br#ed_cl#
