I hope the second set doesn't turn into a runaway like they sometimes do after a very tight first set.
All I can say is Miss Cleo's got nothing on me!!

No sunshine double in men or women, you know what it tell us?
 
Congrats to Petra, she can still beat anyone on the tour with her tennis ! She deserves the top 10 easily.

I am a bit disappointed by Elena tonight, I found her a little bit sloppy at times, especially on some SPs in the TB, she was able to come back from difficult situations against Badosa and Pegula but Kvitova is in another class.

35 year old Federer pulled it off, so idk about that. And Djokovic may have done it in recent years if he was allowed in.
its becoming more phisical in recent years, as shown by how hard the new kids hit the ball, besides you are talking about 2 players that have 42 slams between the two

Slimmed down too, it seems. But not where it counts! Those two... err... fun-damentals are looking mouth-watering.
Yeah, slimer than ever at 32, blasting off the court the most in form player at the moment, who is 22, not a sing of tiredness, not a drop in intensity, nothing to see here folks!

Hoenstly, there are plenty of female players high on my list, but Petra has never been one of them. Nothing about her game, appearance or athletic performance over the years strikes me as suspicious in any way. But then again, you never know.

lack of gesture in the face 3 out of 5 times means a substance is messing with your consciousness, studies are there, so chances are there, besides kvitovas cousin is very friends of a friends of nadal, and you know who is a common friend? doctor cotorro, kvitova regularly asks for a second opinion on "health issues" from him, world is a small place innit?

Those 2 players were the only ones who did the double in the last 20 years anyway. So not having a champion pull it off now could be evidence of the Big 3 simply aging out as much as it's evidence of the game becoming more physical.

I was wondering when she publicly admired Nadal after numbing Foot -this might be my last match operation RG 22.I couldn’t see any connection at time ,they are totally diff athletes in style,game approach and found her exuberance quite odd.If true your post explains it.It’s personal connection .Petra seems to have kind of tremor ,shakes her shoulders consistently throughout the match.Could be psychological trauma she sustained after attack

It's good to see top singles players having great success in doubles. Doubles get a little attention boost from this type of participation. It's certainly makes it more appealing for more fans than just watching "no-name" career doubles players.

It's an all-North American WTA Doubles Final! The pre-match odds is favoring Gauff/Pegula.

Townsend looking even smaller than she did in Australia. She's never going to look slender given her build, but she definitely looks a little fitter. Wonder if it's just a good old regular fitness and nutrition plan or if she's also using Ozempic or one of the other relatively new drugs developed for diabetes but have taken off as weight loss drugs.

That call was really strange. Definitely looked out when the point was played, and the replay didn't help either.

I really hate to agree with a doughnut like Ostapenko, but I still don't think the electronic system is 100% reliable. Usually not an issue, but let's not pretend it is perfect and faultless.

Also, they really need to have some sort of visual clue for a ball that is called out. Maybe have a red light flash or something. There are tournaments where the volume levels are off and you sometimes can't tell what the call was (even looking at player reactions). And if you have a baby sleeping in your house, you sometimes have to watch on mute, which is really annoying.
Kvitova beating Rybakina is very similar to Sinner beating Alcaraz but here we go with the WTA be like comments...
Not sure I'm seeing this. Alcaraz and Sinner are very close in age, but have different playing styles. Also, both Alcaraz and Sinner have been in form recently.

Kvitova and Rybakina are many years apart, although they play similar tennis. And while Rybakina is clearly in form, Kvitova has been fairly inconsistent. Just not seeing it...

Right ? She aged amazingly.
Dude, she's 32. That's not old at all. When you see Jennifer Aniston or Madonna looking really good at 55 (despite what Madonna has done to herself recently), then you can say they aged well...
