What is that yell Collins is making? Two shots in a row she yelled something like "mine!" by the time her shot landed, during the point. So weird, and a hindrance I'd think.

Collins overplayed her game again at the end the 1st set! Loose 1st 5-7! Second set it all Wang!
Collins acting all frustrated but this Wang girl from IMG academies is real deal. She will be top 10 in the future. if she doesnt' make top 10, I will give away my house. This Wild card was a good wild card, it wasn't just a IMG favor

Nostradamus, may be interested in taken possession of you home. Quick claim deed okay? For consideration, I pay you $1 dollar just to make it an enforceable contract and be in writing, 101 RE contract law!

IMG academy graduates has not won anything since Andre Agassi days that I know of. They turnout to be just nobodies in the pro ranks playing ITF Transition Circuits after their WC tickets get exhausted and no ranking to speak of! Most are in the 200-400 rankings!

I might be wrong, but isn't Kerber a bit tosh on clay?
Not sure about Kerber matches on clay but she was #1 so she probably did well on clay too since she is an European and clay is very common surface to play on in Europe.

nishikori still practices there
“He began playing tennis at the age of five. He first won the All Japan Tennis Championships for Kids in 2001, and graduated from Aomori-Yamada High School. Nishikori moved to Bradenton, Florida to join the IMG Academy in 2004 at 14 years of age.[8] His pastimes include football, golf, reading, and listening to music.[9] Nishikori was previously coached by Brad Gilbert. Dante Bottini is his current coach since December 2010. Former world No. 2 Michael Chang was added to his coaching team from January 2014.”

I attribute his success to Gilbert and Chang more the IMG Academy! He lives in Bradenton!

Mertens/Vondrousova both refuse to continue play with the reflection of the facade on the Butch court. Same court that disrupted Opelka/Schwartzman yesterday.

Suspended at 4-2.

Good opportunity for Simona to get back to no 1. Should beat Williams, both Wang's look decent but Simone should beat either of them as well.

Wow Venus beat Kasatkina (who shes never had an easy match against) in straight sets? #OkJesus :D
But now goes against possibly the toughest match-up in the entire remaining draw - Simo.

I only saw tiny bits of Simo's match, wasn't at her best, but I don't think that's indicative of what her form will be like in the next round.

Kasatkina won like 15 % or so points on her 1st serve. With all the upcoming youngsters on the horizon she's probably done for good. She'll be out of top 100 in a matter of months.

Ok, it was 32 %, and she even could't win a game on her serve.
