Would love 2C Simona in the Final again. Her 2018 opponent, C Woz, is already out.These courts are so dead. Or maybe it's the ball. No lively bounce. Gonna be real hard getting a ball past Halep in such conditions. Outside chance for Petra but I would back Halep too to win this one.
Yep be great to see cici get to semi's. After the best few years she had. Sakkai another one i like to see do well here.@Sysyphus

Betting odds have Ash B as favorite. Followed by Karo P, Simona and Petra K. Coco G is not too far behind that group.
She's a long shot but I'd love to see CICi Bellis go deep here. Her 1st major since AO 2018. Hope her arm stays healthy after so many surgeries in the past 2 years.
Wonderful stuff for the sport.
I have no idea why Riske even shows up; she lacks so much of what it takes to be a majors winner, has not displayed much improvement in her game over the past few years, and she has that pampered air about her, with the Everts and Davenports of the world (...yeah...) with that "Allie" crap everytime she takes the court, as if she's some country club little girl.Edit: Alison Riske is now my least favorite WTA player. The yelling “WHY” was Ridiculously loud. Julia won the first set 6-1! She then proceeds to lose the next two? I think she just wore Jule down by annoying the hell out of her. Why???????
I have a feeling that in pressure matches Barty would most likely prevail these days.Kvitová beat Barty in Melbourne last year. Kvitová won the first 4 meetings, Barty the last 3 but I wouldn’t say she has her number.
For realz? Jeez, she's all of 15. She actually sounds more mature than 22 yr old, Naomi. Coco is a natural... very charming with a great personality. Would be a mistake to contaminate or stifle that with "PR lessons".Coco Gauff needs some PR lessons on how to talk and present herself in public. A bit too much "Oh my God...like...oh my god..."
Just saw her hitting that amazing overhead winner in the 6th game. She was jumping/falling backward (quite a bit) in NML while executing it. Incredible athlete.Gauff upset Osaka? Holy crap. Anyone think still think she is overrated? LOL. Man gotta pull up some posts from last year
Bencic for Svitolina who isn't what she was 2 years ago and you might not be far off. Surely KP puts it together in a big event this year.At this moment 24 players left in the draw.
My picks to win:
(Of course I'm wrong. All my faves are long gone)
The other legs still in the draw are CiCi (she's back) and Coco. Even tho the latter's only 15, she's built like a college sprinter.Kerber-Giorgi the battle of the hot legs is my choice!
I actually give it to Simona of the ones left,I think her legs are perfectionI

Simona gets a mention here. Garbine's not too shabby but she's gotten a bit to tin lately.
Check out her interview. According to Serena, Wang didn't do anything very different than her match in NYC except maybe serve a little better.I wonder if Serena will start making excuses as usual....
