    2019 Miami - WTA Premier Mandatory - General Discussion

    Watching the match as we speak - pretty typical match between these two up to 5-4 Halep. Nothing outstanding but nothing fundamentally wrong on either side up to that point. However, bad game from Halep on the 10th game, quickly lost at love with UEs and DF. From there, another quick game lost...

    I think the shift happened at 5-4 when she could not close the set. Pliskova won the next 3 games really quick to close the set and then she was up 5-0 in the second set in no time.

    I give her 60/40 chance to win the final regardless who is on the other side.

    The schedule is all messed up today. They should shuffle the courts to get them all in at reasonable hours otherwise Halep - Pliskova will start after midnight if the other matches go 3 sets.

    I hope Pliskova wins. She is a better match up for Halep than Vondrousova.

    It is but she will be under a lot of pressure to perform well which may not help. Will see....

    Well, Halep better push to win the title to secure some much needed points more than anything else (e.g. regain #1). She has half of her current points to defend during the clay season where the others don't have as much (see below)..... If she doesn't make a good clay season she could fell out...

    Good match from Halep so far. I hope she can close this in straight sets, but you never now how things turn out...

    Bianca Andreescu: under the radar but not for long!

    Yep. Red clay like everything else in Europe. Fed Cup is before Stuttgart as well.

    Bianca Andreescu: under the radar but not for long!

    It pretty straight forward and nothing to argue about. She is a Canadian player of Romanian descent. She still has family and cultural ties to Romania and she speaks the language but as far as her professional tennis career she is Canadian without a doubt.

    Bianca Andreescu: under the radar but not for long!

    Her schedule after FedCup should be standard as for most top players: Stuttgart, Madrid, Rome, Paris.

    Is Andreescu vs Kerber postponed for tomorrow? It will be probably close to midnight by the time Zverev - Ferrer is done.

    ...and Andreescu turns it around from a set and 1-5 down in the second to win the match.
