Su-Wei is spraying balls left and right. UE counts have got to be very high. She even missed a few easy volleys and she's a pretty decent doubles player.

Wow. The sponsor-less Hsieh beats #1 Osaka. Didn't get a good look at everything, but I really couldn't find a single label worn by Hsieh.

Remember Cici Bellis? She used to yell a lot more of "come on!" when she went Pro. Where is she? Looks like still recovering from wrist injury.
Yes, I do recall CC with "c'mon" a fair amount. But I don't it ever being close to as much as with Danielle. With CC it was less frequent, usually shorter in duration. Don't recall it being quite as loud either -- at least not very often. And none of the Collins scowl (RBF). Not even Serena scowls as much as Dani.

Sounded like CC started training again in late Dec & Jan. Not heard anything since. Don't see her listed for upcoming evetns.

Just say the highlights of Osaka and Hsieh! Biggest upset in the Miami Open yet! But it was a very close match overall! No many errors and Hsieh was just great!

She can't have a sponsor due to dispute.
Thanks. Interesting. I googled and found it a few info about this that I was not aware of.

I wonder whether her Nike shoes that she was supposedly wearing (didn't see it on TV) is sponsored or she was just wearing it without being sponsored. I suppose some players will go through the length of removing the label on the shoes if they're not sponsored.

You’d think the top players would figure out how to play Hsieh by now. Literally one of the most bagelled players on tour at the lower levels but because the top stars never play someone so unconventional they get confused. Sad.

I actually meant to say that CC used to yell "Come On" more BEFORE she went Pro.

Yeah, you're absolutely right, CC's "come on" and demeanor is not even close to Collins. Collins' scowl actually looks rather ehm.. scary?

Just watch this and see for yourself how great her games was against Osaka today! You will be taken back your statement to try and diminish Hsieh’s talent and gamesmanship!

But seriously, what's going on with Osaka? Her game has lost its edge. It looks like she even hits a bit differently now...

Bless her heart. Wearing a $7.00 blouse from TJ Max with the footies she got there 3.99 for 3 pair. Dug in her closet and found some old Nike shoes she bought at ***** Sporting Goods when they went on sale.

I hope she picks up some sponsors. She’s wonderful.

In (large) part cuz of Hseih herself. Her game is up & down. Tricky even for herself. She seems to lift her game against top 20 players. But have been bagelled and breadsticked by them as well. Konta delivered a bagel recently. At the 2019 AO, Hseih took Osaka to three but then Naomi only allowed her 1 game in the last set.

Hsieh v Caroline.

Wozniacki should be smart enough to work Hsieh out when so many other players can’t...
Very likely so. Woz has a 4-0 record vs Hseih, with 3 of those appearing to be easy wins. Su-Wen did take a set (with 2 TBs) from Caro. But that was way back in 2012 (Beijing). And Caro delivered the bagel in the 3rd set of that one.

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

I thought Tomlj had the momentum, but Kontaveit is now up a break, leads 3-2 in the third.

Kontaveit will try to serve it out again. Bianca Angie up soon.

Very nice final set between Kontsveit and Tomljanovic. Agreed with the commentators, it's a shame one of them had to lose,

In doubles at Dubai that I watch she wears Adidas top and Nike skirt (Or the other way around) so I'm pretty sure she's wearing it without being sponsored like Lucic-Baroni.
