Obviously, the match of the day is Rafa v Nick....

Would love to see Petra K v Kristina, but that's a 6 a.m. match here in the States. Yet, if I'm awake......

Another match of interest for me is Sloane v Yafan Wang. However, this is a 4 a.m. start. Replay on ESPN+ is the option....

K. Mladenovic (FRA) v P. Kvitova (CZE) 6
S. Williams (USA) 11 v K. Juvan (SLO)
L. Siegemund (GER) v B. Strycova (CZE)

No much going on on the ladies side.
I just have questions:
Is Petra healed.
Which Serena gonna show up?
Siegmund, can she finally get back to her level before that ugly injury?

Taylor wins the lst set from Kiki and starts off the 2nd with a break. Upset here? Playing nicely thus far, serving and volleying, constructing points and finishing at the net.

Davis-Kerber.. Lauren making the winners and UE's in the first set, *2-3, but then a nasty fall from Davis and clearly in pain (think that it is her heavyly taped knee/leg that is the problem), and Kerber takes advantage by breaking.... in the blink of an eye from 2-3 to 2-5... Kerber looks on track for an easy win

Kerber breaks on love and wins the first set 6-2... that was a ugly ending...

MTO for Lauren: her ankle getting taped. Virtually nothing on her left leg remains visible.

Kiki recovering nicely, was up 5-3 on serve, but Taylor breaks. Can she tie? Nice match, very competitive...

Yes, she can. Recovering down 0-30, going to deuce and winning the last 2 points.

Breaker. Taylor blew the heck out of match point. Nailed and out-wide serve, taking Kiki massively off the court. All she had to do was hit a simple volley to her left "inside the service line" for match point, but "elected" to hit a drop shot which went into the net. Unbelievable nonsense....

3rd set. Taylor should be taken to the woodshed for messing up match point. No excuse for the miscue, for Kiki was completely out of the play....

Taylor is now down 0-3 in the 3rd, punching her own airline ticket....

That's what happens when you are not match-tough. Instead of pushing that ball in the open court to win the match, she tried to be cute. When you are on the tour playing week-in week-out, you learn not do those kind of silly things on match points... because you learn it takes hard work to get to match point.
It's obvious Taylor lacks competition.

I like this Juvan girl Serena is playing. Big serve, big return, nice ball placement, solid off the ground.
She makes the Ace2Ace crew.
Very nice to see a player with beautiful, strong and well placed serves. I am fan.

Serena in trouble... big big trouble. If she gets broken in the second serve, she'll be heading home.
This Juvan girl will not be easy to break. And she is more likely to break. I watched her last game yesterday to have an idea. Was impressed with her serve and ground strokes.

The commentator on the match said that Taylor does not like traveling outside of the States. Point proven, for she played no Euro tourneys (ITF/Tour) after the French. So, she's content on just merely being on the Tour/ITF, qualifying for the Slams, then hoping for WCs, if she doesn't outright qualify for maindraw stateside events. What can one say....... :roll:
