This is such an excellent assessment of Halep's game.
2013. But not in a match. I think Errani hit 20 winners in all of 2013
Disagree with what? you just confirmed of what i said that Halep is more comparable to Errani than to anyone else in top 10. I never said she IS like Errani
JJ, Kerbs, Victoria, Maria and Na are all better comparisons.
I may agree with Kerber, but not the other ones, and, LOl, not Maria
Fair enough. All entitled to our own opinions
Li now going to serve for the match
If you can get it on, switch on Ana / Svitolina. 2-2 in the decider, both girls hitting great
The sudden screaming by Svitolina is pretty distracting. Especially since she seems to scream well after contact with the ball. Does she do that often?
I'm watching on mute. I'm an Azarenka fan
Smart move. It's just weird, she's quiet for long stretches, and suddenly she lets out a couple of REALLY loud screams.
Last night was epic then. There was screaming all over the place. It was like a torture chamber.
What a comedy of errors that was. Still, entertaining.
Look at those stats. 16 double faults and over 100 unforced errors between the two of them!
Wow clean match
Lol 67?, that's atrocious, just atrocious.
Its all relative It could be 97 next time But 67 is freaking funny.
This was the best moment from the Ana / Svitolina match
Quality was really high first two sets, both girls point building and hitting winners. Was very entertaining
Oh joy! I haven't seen Coco play in years. What a treat.
LOL! I call this glumping (goat leg pumping...when Ana leg pumps it's goat).
I'm working so don't get to watch any of it today, but at least she had 51 winners to go with 67 UE (8 of which were DFs), so sounds messy but at least fun. Sounds like they were both going for it.
Yeah it was a great little R2 match. More than I expected from Svitolina. Ana actually played very well, particularly set 2.
Oh noes, it looks like the Giorgi match is not televised. I was planning on spending the night in with Camila.
Julia coming up next. the hottest girl on tour
Well now I have to watch to check that claim.. A night in with Goerges it is!
Tie break Giorgi / Cirstea. You can do it Camila, fight your way back to a showcourt!
Woohoo, Giorgi takes the first set! Are there really no cameras on court 6? ..withdrawal symptoms..
Julia trying to hang
Key game coming up..
Key points coming up..
Maria 6-1,6-4. If she can improve her serve,I see a 3rd IW title for her...
Camila three points from the win..
Powerpuff Giorgi for the win!
(Hey, I spent this much time making this, I'm going to reuse it)
Next up for Giorgi: Sharapova. I've got a feeling that this match will be on TV.
Wow, Kerber just lost. Who is Torro-Flor Maria-Teresa?
And Kerber goes down to No. 76 Maria Teresa Torro Flor in 3 sets.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH ANGIE KERBS LATELY?!?!
Are there any German women left in the draw? Goerges, Lisicki, Kerber, Petkovic, Barthel- all gone. Annika Beck is the last German woman standing.
This match could be very interesting. I think that Giorgi could stand up to the power of Sharapova. And she can generate a lot of power for her size. She moves well so she likely won't send back to Maria as many defensive shots that Maria ends up crushing. And yes, this match should be televised.
Watching Taylor Townsend for the first time. Her movement is pretty good.

Great shots and anticipation, one set all.
Good stuff from Taylor Townsend. She just took the second set from Flavia Pennetta. Yet another American woman (if she wins this match) to be touted the next Serena Williams.
If she can play with the top right now that says alot. She is 17. Who knows what the upside on her is. I would never say Serena. There aint many Serenas out there.
OK, so I'm really impressed with Townsend's retrieving, anticipation, confident ball striking, and even touch. I'm just surprised that she can be at this level and appear overweight. I realize I'm channeling Richard Krajicek here..
Hey babe ruth was a great athlete to
Hurt...or her head is not in the right place.
Halep and Bouchard will both go through some hard testing today
This Halep Safarova match is already pretty entertaining!
Edit: they're both fighters, and the quality of the tennis is high at the moment. Really fun.
Edit2: I shall not be held responsible for any viruses. Also, let me know if this is not acceptable to post. Stream (Italian commentary).
Halep makes less errors at high speed, more balanced, 5-2
Safarova is suffocated for now
Yeah, it went from competitive to one-sided in a hurry. First four games were pretty great, but right now Safarova is making too many unforced errors. Let's see if she straightens things out.
