Another brilliant return and Osaka gets break point.

Collins changing racquets mid game which is pretty poor considering there’s nothing wrong with it...
There's one return that Osaka just really hit it real hard straight and Collins just can't do anything bout it.
It's remind me a lot of Serena's return to Halep.

Still erratic play from Naomi but seems she get it done first set.


Naomi's been going for the deep deuce corner even if she has the whole court.
EDIT then she wins the last point in the set by not doing that. Maybe she heard me.


That said, it's a testament to Osaka's level that she can handle a dangerous player like Collins with relative ease even while playing her B game. She's an easy favorite here to win (that is, defend) title.


This controlled power tennis from Osaka is woahsome. Very, very few women could hang on the court with her when she chooses to play like that.

The round of 16 looks like a lot of fun. Theres a lot of young talent there.

(1) Osaka vs. (23) Bencic
(21) Kontaveit vs. (5) Pliskova
V. Williams vs. Barthel
(9) Sabalenka vs. (8) Kerber

(7) Bertens vs. (20) Muguruza
(18) Wang vs. Andreescu
(6) Svitolina vs. (12) Barty
Vondrousova vs. (2) Halep
These are the scores of the last set in a match that Angie lost:
vs Kvitova 1-6
vs Collins 2-6
vs Mertens 1-6
vs Hsieh 0-6

I would not surprise if she lost against Sabalenka in a similar manner on 2nd/3rd.


Was worried when she went down a break in the third, although Bertens totally gifted it back a few games later.

Seemed like a good match even though the statline wasn't the cleanest. Good result for her.


Hall of Fame
I wonder if Halep is physically okay. She has always been more of a grinder but she has absolutely zero power right now.

Barty breaks to love and will serve for the set.

Was 5-3 down now leads 6-5. Saved two match points.

She'll be in the top 10 if she wins this match. Huge.
