Why does this umpire say deuce so weirdly?
Report edy April 7, 2023 5:35 AM BST
That's a funny scoreline in the Pegula match with first Pegula losing ten straight games after a 4-0 lead in the second set, only for then Begu to lose a 4-0 lead when she lost six straight games to lose the set and the match.

Sorribes Tormo served big yesterday (by her standards). Will be interesting to see if it's a high altitude thing or if she was able to improve her serve while she wasn't able to run.

Though the doubles SF seems to have been brought forward from usually being played on Saturday (and it also stating on the tickets page that they'd be played Satuday). Looking at the weather forecast for today, I have a rough idea on why they might have decided to do that though.
Report wisewords April 7, 2023 7:02 PM BST

Tursunov must have bad breath or something. Another player who has good results with him and still fires him.

first google search says
"The best time to visit Charleston, SC is from mid-March through May and from September through November, when temperatures are moderate. Take advantage of spring and fall's excellent walking weather to stroll the city's parks and the waterfront Battery."
and I am not sure about that.
