That was a great point from Elina to earn another BP, wow.

Muchova errs and we have a break of serve.

I hope this goes to TB.

Svitolina was nearly on her way out against Gasparyan. Now she’s close to making the semis and leads the h2h 4-2 against Halep.

This. Is. Not. Someone. Out. Of. Shape.

She looks like a Roman gladiator in that particular picture. But in other shots you can tell it's not all muscle. While she does have a LOT of muscle, I'm fairly certain that her body fat percentage is quite a bit higher and than someone like Simona or Camila.

That said, the crude comments in this thread are not warranted.

Muchova-Svitolina 5:7, 1:0
Svitolina turned the 1st set from 2:5 to 7:5. Svitolina started play more aggressively, a change in tactics has contributed to the turnaround.

Body types are real. The women you mentioned don't have the same body type as Serena. She is going to be some 120 lb waif. Serena is not fat as people are consistently saying she just weighs more than they want her to. She will continue shine and win anyhow

Svitolina is a set and a break ahead but still not out of trouble.

In every single service game of her at the very minimum she lets Muchova go up 30 points and usually also reach deuce or breakpoints. That tells me Muchova can cause another miracle today. She just has to keep doing her allcourt sh*t being all over the net like white on rice.

I expected a one-sided beatdown so watching Muchova/Svitolina but seems like Strycova has kinda held on?
Strycova is returning Konta's serve with a very low bouncing ball, pushing Konta to make a mistake, because she's just like Delpo on that matter.

And Konta's also helping with some midcourt blunders. And now blunders from everywhere.

Whoops there it is -- the classic Svitolina choke

she was only two points separated from a glorious semi final debut and she flunked. Double break undone.

SVITO won!

Mucho at the net remains a sight to behold. It's like watching one of those Boris Becker versus Edberg classics

Who would’ve ever thought Svitolina’s first slam SF would come at Wimbledon of all tournaments?

So happy for her, sets up a juicy SF against Halep.

The womens game is almost in as bad a state as the mens is freaking Halep who cant play worth a darn on grass makes the Wimbledon final. A prime Graf or prime Williams would double bagel Halep on grass.

And LOL at the typical Svitolina chokefest.

Body fat % is real too. Sure SW is big-boned with a lot of muscle mass. But this does not mean that her BF % is low.... can see it in her torso. Just saying. Not really interested in continuing this discussion any further than this. Already too many crude comments in this thread about her weight... Let's stop already.
