Pliskova is just doing her eyeore tribute act that’s all. She got a bit confused about where she is. She’s certainly not playing like she’s in a slam QF and the fourth seed.
And she may still win today, and the title. She is not an interesting player, and I used to root for her in years past.

I'm just uncomfortable by the idea of a Raducanu v Sakkari SF.

One of them will be in the final if Pliskova continues on this track.

She’s not even trying on serve. She’s had 20 or more aces basically every match. Tonight she’s just placing it in

With the women's tour I always have to hold my breath because it's never truly over until it's over - but I am feeling quite hopeful that Maria is going to win! Then all 4 of the women I wanted to see in the semis will have gotten in to them - that almost never happens!

Neither Bencic nor Pliskova were interested in winning today.
It's more than obvious.
Being happy and content - Bencic because she won the gold medal, which has now become a huge sparkly mantle concealing a career that should've perhaps been much better; Pliskova because she reached the Wimbledon final and is all smiles now in every match she plays - is a great recipe to lose against players who aren't necessarily better than you, but certainly hungrier and less "content". Case in point: Raducanu and Sakkari.

She needs a serious, hefty fine. She’s just looping the ball back
But why? I can't believe she doesn't want to win this match badly. Giving her the benefit of the doubt, could the explanation be an injury, illness or personal problem? Or am I looking for excuses just because I love her? ;)

It has to be one of those things. This is completely ridiculous

I won't believe Maria has won until she really has done so - I am holding my breath and hoping she is able to either break here or hold her serve in the next game...

For a smaller girl Sakkari has some great power behind the serve. Wow. She is hitting 110-116 mph
I've never thought of her as a 'smaller girl'. She's almost 5'8" and she's got a massively muscular body. That's certainly a bit below average perhaps for WTA, but it's definitely not short.

Really disappointing women's matches today, especially from the so-called "favourites".
I was still hopeful, but now I just want these younger and hungrier players to take the tour by storm and start dominating.
Enough of these perennial "favourites" who never deliver. Even Myskina won a Slam, for god's sake.
