Oooh. Kalinskaya took a moonball off the bounce for a winner. Don't normally see the girls try that, but it was a very nice shot. Think it was 4 points in a row in the breaker.
Considering who's going through to the next round, serves them right...Friday's schedule. Some players will have to play 2 matches due to the rain today.
Was it the BJK Cup final at the end of 2021 where Samsonova was the MVP and won it for Russia? She has serious credentials when she's in form. I think it's only a matter of time before she gets a big GS result.
Wang is coming thru that one. samsonava is just too inconsistentTerribly ironic, considering she is as Italian as it gets. But the spiteful paper-pushers at the FIT went out of their way to make sure she wouldn't get her passport in time. Screw her, they figured, she'll never crack the top 200 anyways...

I don't know enough about PED's to comment, but she definitely has lost a lot of weight and plays as if she is possessed.Samsonova is about one of the clearest PED transformations you’ll ever see in sports. Compare her now to a picture from 2019 or 2020. Seriously, look it up. It’s absurd.
Yeah...I was looking for the matches today and saw Tennis Channel had Pickleball on. big lol.This one is over.
Very interesting decision to move these matches to Bally's, a channel most don't get in America.
Samsonova beat Kanepi 4-6 6-3 6-3 to win the 2022 Citi Open. No celebration after winning the match point, the same way ER did at Wimby. Is this a new trend?
Didn't know she had to go through those.Maybe it's a subtle way to make a stand against the anti-Russian Cold War insanity that some demonic banksters have plunged the world into. I mean, we're living in a world where friggen Vika Azarenka, who at this point is as American as Starbucks, has been denied entry into the uber-dystopian Davos-controlled nightmare known as Canada. And Samsonova had to apply 3 times for a VISA just to come play this tournament, which is especially ironic considering she hasn't lived a day of her life in Russia.
Still, it's more likely that these subdued celebrations are just due to their personality. Either way, Brava Lyuda, well done!
