Shame Rybakina and Vondrousova got matched up in the first round. I like both so it's disappointing to have one knocked out in first round.
Have a bet on Kudermetova tomorrow. Went under 19.5 games which is maybe a little dodgy for her, but she's playing a Russian junior whose game seems a bit defensive (made semis of RG juniors I think though). Thinking Kudermetova will have a lot of free points on serve but we will see. Only worried that she could start spraying if her opponent goes into lockdown mode.
Didn't necessarily think about the quick turnaround from playing the doubles final to landing in Moscow for this tourney. Still think Kudermetova should be able to close this out fairly easily, but we never know.
Really poor service game from Rybakina and Vondrousova is serving for the match. Was learning towards her slightly before the match, but not confident enough, especially considering that loss to Golubic in IW.
Vondrousova having an easy time with Tsurenko. Had a small hiccup serving for the set at 5-2 and dropped serve, but immediately broke gain for a 6-3 first set. Tsurenko hasn't really been able to get the ball through her.
Osorio Serrano looking to follow up her win over Svitolina, won the first set against Sherif! Following the Murray match at the moment, but I have the scores on for her and would be happy to see her win again.
