It has been pretty good, he is right. Whether that's the right thing to say though is another thing.

It's hard to know though what style will get Muguruza going. We've seen she seems to get up for slams more, but it's not like she turns up to these events and doesn't try, she looks more of a mess mentally at them, but that's because you get to see her vs Sumyk which you don't at slams, she seems to keep it together at slams though.
Report caramba October 13, 2018 11:27 AM BST
She wasn't at USO. Played a fairly good match against Muchova, GOATed early on, then played ok in 2nd and 3rd, but Muchova playing out of her skin got to her and in the end Garbine completely folded due to low confidence and nervjoosness.

Most recent Garbine has shown good signs, reminds me of the start of her 2017 season where she didn't play her best but at leat fought hard.
Report n88uk October 13, 2018 11:30 AM BST
End of the day Muguruza is floundering at a ranking atm that is much lower than she should be for no good reason, she's not missed any real time due to injury, and she's not even in Singapore contention, that's not good enough for someone of her talents.

She also has a game that benefits much more from quicker courts than the stuff in places like Indian Wells and Miami.

But really she's played pretty well for weeks on end now, but I guess we've also seen this in the past. At the very top Garcia looked awesome this time last year and hasn't shown anything like it all year.

Djokovic the true Asian King anyway. He's something like 62-4 in his last 66 matches in China or something crazy like that.

Novak Djokovic's record in China is quite remarkable. Since the start of 2009, he was won 60 of the 64 matches he has played here (31-4 in Shanghai, 29-0 in Beijing). 51 of his wins have been completed in straight sets.


51 straight set wins is also way above the curve.

Wang lost concentration after winning the set. then she went back to servebot, winning 12/13 pts on serve. she's on a hot streak where Garbine isn't fit at all. first serve is way off. people need to do their stats homework and quit it with the amateur psychology
Report differentdrum October 13, 2018 12:33 PM BST
Pliskova taken to three by Boulter. Bacsinszky beats Sabalenka. Pretty obvious that Pliskova will then go on to slaughter Bacsinszky. At least two of the favourites have ended up making the final.

Two outsiders win the semi's in Hong Kong. Gives Wang another chance to mess up as an overwhelming favourite. It shouldn't anything other than an easy straight sets win.
