Kristina breaks back, 3-1!
Halep back to #1 will be short lived anyway as she has some 3000+ points to defend between IW and RG which will be very tough.If Simona can take the title she’ll only be a couple hundred points behind Osaka who has to defend her Indian Wells title soon. Might be a short run as #1 for Naomi.
Simona won 12 points in a row broke Tsurenko twice and win 7-5 in 2nd.
Honestly she's so good if only she's not planted on the baseline her attack will be scary!
It's pretty vocal, maybe because she's losing so they are cheering (Based on what I watch). Her fanbase is growing if she's continue playing good which is good for tennis. The 2 biggest superstars on women tennis (Serena and Maria) are playing part time.But no where near as vocal, or loyal.
I agree. I watched also, but I got the impression the crowd were trying to lift Osaka. Halep has a large number of vocal supporters where ever she goes. No bad thing given how sparse arenas are generally outside the majors and joint ATP/WTA tournamentsIt's pretty vocal, maybe because she's losing so they are cheering (Based on what I watch). Her fanbase is growing if she's continue playing good which is good for tennis. The 2 biggest superstars on women tennis (Serena and Maria) are playing part time.
Simona has a solid fan base and we need more!
Angie just did not try on that 3rd set. It's hard against Su Wei when she's on cause you've got to run chasing the ball like crazy especially for someone like Angie who did not have serve and power.edit: everyone’s favorite underdog Hsieh Su-wei beat Kerber? Her unorthodoxed style of play really stifles her opponents.
Hsieh is becoming a player that can go deep into the draw! Has Hsieh finally got endorsements for racquets, clothing or shoes?Kerber narrowly escaped Hsieh treatment at 2018 AO, but not this time around.
Hsieh can now put Kerber on her big-name, GS holders, wins list along with Muguruza ('18 AO) and Halep ('18 Wimbledon).
