Thiem has a great chance in these conditions.

I always think the person with the greater weight of shot has a real chance in the wind.

Konta complained AFTERWARDS. The scheduling was not to her liking it seems.

How bookmakers must love women's tennis. Hardly any wonder you get a new winner almost every week. A player can look strong one day and fragile the next. How is a punter supposed to read their minds? So many matches come down to having the self belief just to get over the line.

The pressure of that one chance in a lifetime looked like it proved too much for Konta although perhaps we read too much into her opponent's wobble in the quarter final. Hard to believe that Konta will get a better chance.

I can't get anything right in any sport at the moment so that probably means Barty lands the odds.
