Baszak, who I have never heard of, must be real good. 4-1 up in 1st set and 365's odds on set 1 are 4/6 Baszak and Sasnovich 11/10, not sure I can ever remember such big odds to win a set while up 4-1.

4/5 as soon as Sasnovich goes 15-0, good stuff.

Why is Pegula losing to Bencic the joke of the century, very easy to argue Bencic is a much better player.

Yeah. It's brutal. Couldn't tell if it was an MTO for Laura or not. Market was moving marginally in for Elina during the break, but that often happens with the big fav going into the decider anyways.
