Is Kenin really the best American woman at this point? I feel like so many other players have more talent. ,
Her and Osaka are the best right now.

"Has more talent" is usually reserved for players which are combinations of: extremely attractive, hits really hard, serves really hard, has a single-handed backhand, posts bikini pics on instagram. But doesn't win hardly anything.

Uh, I don't know about that. Osaka is certainly one of the best right now.

Not so sure about Kenin. We'll see how her career shakes out.

UGA likes Nadal: that’s a big minus for me. This will be the last time that I will root for her.

I’m disappointed:(

Can also be. I said that because Kenin returns a lot of otherwise winners.
She does, but aside from a few rallies, I think Swiatek has been able to win, when she's hit a forceful shot or two. I.e. I think she's playing well below her level in the previous matches not so much because of Kenin, but because of (very understandable) nerves.
Either way, hoping for a better match from here on out, too erratic and too many errors from both

the ATP and the WTA must adopt the college tennis policy of dropping a point any time you take a MTO

players still do it, but starting the next game down 0-15 at least imposes a penalty and makes people think twice about abusing the system

right now it's a freely abused system, getting worse every year
That sounds fair. Can we also do "lose the game if you take a MTO mid-game"?

Kenin goes for I/O BH. UE results in a break for Swiatek. Swiatek up 3-1 in the 2nd set.

Swiatek hits a more solid topspin forehand than the vast majority on tour.

Largely a function of her more ATP-like technique. Compact, loose, efficient forehand.

Works especially well on the clay and she can push opponents back with it without resorting to moonballing.
