Un*******believable! I was almost planning for SF pick. How could anyone blow away such a big lead! :mad: I need a therapy. Might as well skip next few tournaments.

After defending champion, and my pick, Ostapenkoflop lost in the first round of the French, it's hard to take too seriously. The WTA SDL just mirrors the WTA Tour. In fact the former may be a tad more consistent :)
On the plus side, at least Hsieh is fun to watch and a breed apart from the usual runofthemill. Probably doesn't help....

WTA is far more consistent now compare to 2017. All 3 top seeds in semis Dubai with the exception of Mertens who win it all.
If Kvitova and Halep win that's 2/4 and + Svitolina is not that bad (Svitolina lost to CSN twice last year tho).
Looks like ATP heading to WTA '17 direction with only 1 seed and we're not even at Quarter final yet at Rio! Lucky they have the gatekeepers.

Gotta love those nonchalant shots . I guess that broke down Pliskova's game today. WTA is far more consistent than ATP at this moment. Same with SDL games. Could've become No.1 in live race, had Pliskova won.

Wow!
Congrats @Boozyuzi
I thought we had a slim chance - you never know what Kvitova will show up.

Of my meagre WTA SDL titles, two are courtesy (by default) of Belinda Bencic winning!!! I really should like her more! :)
