Some really outstanding strokes by Görges (there was one in the 1st set tie-break that is about the stroke of the year!) The kind of that basic player like Vekic hardly has ever hit.

This is far from being over but yes Görges is a master choker so... expecting to be unhappy after this match… :/

Belinda's defense has also improved leaps and bounds since I've started following her. Her serve not so much, even if she is defending her second serve relatively well today. But all her ground game is clicking - I can't stress that enough.

I'm starting to see why Bencic had a 3-1 record against Osaka. I think the commie pointed out correctly that Bencic is used to handling Osaka's pace and in fact likes it and directs the balls well - adding the fact that Bencic likes to hit very early.

There's noticeable less fire in Osaka today. She thrives on that energy from the crowd.

Tennis is the worst sport to bet on. The swings and momentum shifts are a nightmare. I think I’ve lost like 20 years of my life betting on tennis. The stress and chokes just aren’t worth it.

Nice match by Bencic. What's wrong with Osaka. I started watching during the second set and the commentators kept mentioning her physical condition.

YEEES! So glad about "my" Belinda! As a fan, after all those injuries, this is immensely satisfying. She played so well today!

I have no problem with this win/loss.
This Benic might even take out Andreescu, and certainly Serena if she came her way.

Time for Bencic to console Osaka! :)

WTA is known for it’s epic chokings. So who’s the most clutched player?

Wow, Bencic beat Naomi 3x this year. She also beat Serena in the past. who knows, who knows who will win.
 
Haters might say she fake it but probably the knee. She's slower than her 3R match and just trying to shorten point after taking pill (I assume pain killer).
She was not 'slower' than her R3 match, she was playing an opponent who hugs the baseline and takes the ball early instead of a 15-year old who sits behind the baseline and loops up balls.

This big babe tennis could still be just a little more percentage tennis... but perhaps that would turn it into basic! :laughing:
I haven't seen this kind of big babe tennis going toe-to-toe for a long time!
I thought Osaka had powerful strokes, but Bencic was one-upping her most of the time.

How did I know that Goerges was going to lose after she blew MP? Of course she’s going to lose, because that goes against my bet, so it makes me lose. So fhking predictable if it goes against me. Just another day.

She’s gonna hold from 15-40 down

Yup. It’s deuce now.

Why didn’t she just wait for the ball to bounce? Wtf. Lost fhking 4K. Unreal ****.
