1 thing that bodes well for Konta - in the past few tournaments she's made 4 comebacks after losing the first set: vs Bertens, Stephens, Hsieh and Y. Wang. Also, Konta has beaten Vondrousova already on clay this year - she MUST keep believing this is her time because she damn well has the ability.

Of all the poll options, only barty made the semis and only barty plus stephems made the quarters.

It's so random, Absolutely impossible to pick a winner.

Barty won 23 of the first 27 points, and lost the set.

Anisimova won 17 points in a row from 2-4 down in the first set tie break. Going 3-0 up in the second set.

Since then, Barty has won 24 of the last 30 points to win the second set 6-3.

This match redefines the term "momentum shifts."

First set Anisimova has lost all tournament. Now let’s hope Barty takes the next quickly!

Come on girl you can do it, stay strong.

Also Halep. Plus Kvitova and Bertens witdrew/retired. Pliskova and Osaka lost are the upset. Kerber first match on outdoor clay is here at RG.
So this is kind of expected really.
My mistake, was thinking Halep lost in the fourth round. FOrgive my ignorance on WTA tennis :)

Still, the point is you can't really decide who the poll options should be cos it's so random. I wouldn't have added Kerber though, her record at the French is lousy for a three time major winner.

Yeah RG Ws kinda RIP once Kvitova and Bertens pulled out. Those 2 are 2/4 Clay Premier winners.

Both Barty and Anismova are such smart players. They really know how to apply their tactics and it's great to watch. I'm a huge fan of Naomi Osaka but she just smashes the ball and applies cookie cutter patterns a bit like Dominic Thiem and hopes they'll work. She isn't cerebral like these two.

Wow, for once I want the ladies to play as long as they possibly and it's actually happening.

Btw LMAO at Barty for losing the first set, just checked what happened.
