Ostapenko lost 0-6, 0-6

There should be a clause that you don’t get appearance money if you don’t win a single game. Yeh, you literally appeared but there has to be some floor on effort.

Evert beat Navratilova (already twice Wimbledon champion) 0&0.
But, that loss turned Navratilova's career around as she was mortified.
Evert also beat Austin (already twice US Open champion) 0&0.

Ostapenkoflop is not made of the stern championship attitude that all the women mentioned above showed.

What the ***k is wrong with Ostapenko? That scoreline is just inexcusable (unless she's claiming injury in which case she shouldn't have been playing in the first place)!! :mad:

This is one of the reasons I get so exasperated with WTA tennis. So many stupid bagels all the time but for a former Slam champion to fold like that is just completely unacceptable. She was quite forthright in her putdowns of better players than her some time back so she should maybe take some time off and reflect on what more she really wants to achieve in tennis if anything at all!! :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

Wrist injury.

I have to credit her with sticking it out once she stepped on court, even if that couldn't have done it any good.

At least she did give the crowd a match to watch, though she couldn't play to the best of her ability

A match is better than no match, for a spectator.

I think Wang understood. Nice hug at the net.

And Halep's injury is worrying too. Jamie Hampton.

LOL there was no injury inhibiting her performance. Even the commentators were saying that a wrist injury could not be causing the issues she was having, and may only have affected her 2hbh a little, if at all. She just couldn't get a ball in the court, and was falling on to her serve dragging it onto the net, and being Ostapemkopf, she was content to sulk and pout her way to defeat rather than find a way to adjust.

"The WTA has so much depth and talent right now" LMAO!

Ash Barty is one of the few worth even watching. The rest of the WTA is an absolute joke. Holds of serve are now the "breaks". I knew it was bad, but getting the chance to watch a heap of WTA now I have access to foxtel, I am amazed at just how parlous a state it is in.

I wish she wouldn't have played and risk further injuring herself.

Was thinking what could be nickname for uprising Wang
Wang knows that her nickname over on TF is "Snow White". Early in her career she got called Chinese Sharapova for a short while but that didn't stick. Less complimentary was "Wang 8 Qiang" or "Quarterfinal Wang Qiang", since she usually went out in the last 8. Her fans call her "Mei Qiang" or "beautiful rose". She has proven she can play.

Foxtel is annoyingly expensive since I don't follow other sport. The dynamic in WTA match is different than ATP, if you already getting used to Men's game with fewer break it is hard to adjust with Women's tennis which serve not as big factor as their male counterpart.

The only GS champion that lost 0-6, 0-6 I knew is Sharapova that lost to Davenport in Pacific life Open.
LOL. This is the 2nd ex top 10 player killed in double bagel by Wang. The other one is Mladenovic.

Connors got double bageled by Lendl in 1983-4 ish.

Gaudio got double bageled by Fed at the WTF

Ivanovic has been double bageled I think twice. Def at least once.

Fed almost double bageled Murray at the WTF. Was up 6-0, 5-0, 30-0, on Murray’s serve. Murray hit a 2nd serve ace down the middle to get to 30-all and eventually hold.
