Loving this match-up so far. Both stalk the baseline – every shot has to be hit with intent or it gets pounced on by the opponent.


Hall of Fame
I have never understood this. I never root for a player because of where they are from nor do I favor players from my home country. I have always found nationalism odd.
Sure. I would root for Federer and Henin against Americans, but I would most likely root for most Americans otherwise.

I just never really got attracted to British players, with the exception of few Manchester United players.


FWIW, Emma comes from a super-elite, private "grammar school" with a top tier tennis program. Leylah comes from a plain "two cars and a mortgage" background. So I kinda tend to root for Leylah. Just sayin'.


Grit, variety, lack of fear, good hitting - we have it all.

Though, Radacanu hitting two swinging volleys from the service line - big no.
