... and we're done with tennis in Europe for a while, so we can do stuff during the day for the next five weeks if we wish. Lots of big names missing this week due to injuries (Murray, Djokovic, Wawrinka, Sharapova, Azarenka), but hopefully there will still be good tennis and lots of opportunities for us to make wettquotens. Good luck!

Lol at that game from Woz.

That was a lot of frustration from Woz too. You sometimes see petulance swings from her. But she was flat out smashing the net with her racket there.

Svitolina beat her dropping 6 games earlier in the year morrillo, no reason she couldn't do that again.

I actually don't like the way she's playing this so far, but she's still in the lead.
Report n88uk August 13, 2017 7:18 PM BST
For me Svitolina has been too passive, she can step it on the gas more than this, and has been this year when playing at her best. She did this in Dubai. One way for her to lose is if it comes an out and out physical contest.

But then she's still ahead, so what do I know.
Report morrillo August 13, 2017 7:18 PM BST
Svit isn't doing much here and Wozzy is gifting heavy.

At 5*-4 deuce she was talking like Wozniacki was leading. Now after Svitolina wins set, her and Annie K are questioning if Svitolina who I assume most people favoured can keep it up.

Report n88uk August 13, 2017 7:34 PM BST
No more digging to be done atm until next band of information comes out, which hard to know when it will come.

I would say it's pretty unlikely she plays the US Open, but without full facts very hard to tell.

Sharapova also very hard to tell. I can't remember Sharapova pretty much every playing the grand slam after withdrawing from all the warm ups like this, but she also could potentially play Q for warm up matches which normally not been an option to her. So history suggests no, but her statements and activities suggest yes. But then the latter also suggested she would play Cincy, and she didn't.

Very hard to see her doing that. She's played 1 match in about 4 months by the time the US Open starts.

Also even if she plays, her body holding up seems pretty questionable. I assume if she plays she will go off about 25s, and it's deserved imo.

Report n88uk August 13, 2017 7:42 PM BST
She will always be artificially under priced a bit too in this field. Big name in a field lacking big names with no Serena, and a perception of anyone can win will lead to money going on her if she plays.

Svit in the fist set was doing nothing. I thought she was tired. I made a bad decision laying svit. I lost on the player I knew would lose. It happens when you lay and then the other gowl decides to go into self destruct mode. Svit upped it and deserves to make 0-6 feel like a mug by giving her a 0-6 in the final set of the tourno
