Kenin/Zhang in the next round. Jabeur/Wang in the QF. Both winnable.
Barty/Kvitova/Riske the challenge in the SF but I mean Osaka and Venus were easy for her so who knows. Just not writing her off.
Osaka - totally flat, she didn't even bother (or didn't know how) to put on a fight
Venus - not surprising at all

Honestly, I don't think Gauff can even pass Kenin/Zhang or Jabeur/Wang, those "old" girls will want nothing more than beating the new WTA IT girl and at the biggest stage, you can bet they will go out of their way to take down Gauff.
 
Geez what's your beef with her
Well, that poster is harsh but it's also true that Osaka has gone off a disappointing trajectory after winning AO last year. Made a totally weird decision about her coach and since then has kept sliding. It looked like she could be the next great player but the way it's going, she might settle for being another two slammer like Vika, Petra or Mugu.

I like Sabalenka as a dark horse.

I missed the Osaka match. Did she give or let Gauff win or did Gauff truly win it? I can see Naomi sharing success with a younger friend by letting her win a match.

Huge fightback from Kenin. Zhang led 5-2 and had a total of 4 set points but Kenin wins 5 straight games to take it 7-5.

She was great during Asian Swing and not too bad when losing to Pliskova (Had a match point). It's not like she's going downhill ala Muguruza. Still has hope for her.

credited Wang, but added her usual, "too many errors"
Serena Williams loses to Nobody. if she loses it Is because she was playing horrible or making too many UE's. because Serena is better than everybody, nobody beats serena when she is 100 %, not even Margaret court. This is really true actually.

Gauff serve very well. Especially her 2nd serve is very strategic. But it's winners or errors from Naomi whole match, with the errors twice as much as the winners.

She already said she likes Gauff but did not like losing to 15 years old like some poster said.

Also Sabalenka done and dusted on R1.

Gauffs serve has more pace than last year?
Naomi has lost her focus. after her slam wins Why is this a trend? Halep, Stephens, I'm not a Barty fan so it's getting hard to watch later rounds.

Wow. Sabalenka done and dusted. I'm starting to think some players are enjoying the travel part a little too much.
