    Darn missed this epic Pliskova burst. It's like seeing Borg went nuts - of course never happened.

    Not Hawkeye - it's flawed in principle: doesn't show real contact, but a computed one.
    Bring back the system they had several years ago: high-speed cameras on the lines, showing real contact.

    I'm not even sure it touched the inside of the line. No wonder they couldn't find the mark, they were looking on the wrong side of the line..

    Hey BEIN sports, screw you for leaving a tight, exciting match between Kerber and Begu to show the Venus match just starting.

    Good win for Kerber over Begu after Angie dropped the first.

    Any wins for Kerber on clay is a good win.

    Ah Vesnina! Another one who is useless most of the time and only seems to peak against Venus.:rolleyes:

    So umpires should be blacklisted based on 1 (admittedly awful) mistake? We would very rapidly run out of umpires.....
    Pretty weak to pretend the match was lost because of that point:rolleyes:

    This Sharapova lady is turning into a veritable three-set specialist.

    Apparently in sets 2 and 3 combined Maria hit a W/UE ratio of 34/20, now that's respectable!!

    We just need this Garbie match to get underway. If she wins then we get an interesting match with Masha.

    Gavrilova gives a "come on" on a Garbie error on a high volley...lol

    Mugu is coming in on pretty much every short ball. I like this aggressive style, but lately her net game has been blaaaah.

    Hmm. Was hoping for a break and then a loud vamos, but Gavrilova double faults to give it back...no vamos.

    Hopefully this doesn't go three sets...I don't know how many more come ons I can put up with. Dunno how many more break point chances I can watch Garbie waste either. Federer school of break point conversion is in session today.

    She already did a three setter specialist which went missing for a while during her comeback.
