Fernandez is like Wozniacki 2.0. And Wozniacki made it to number one and stayed there for a bit, as well. Frustrated her opponents with her movement, blocking the ball back, and angles.

But eventually, they figure you out.
What a travesty being compared to Wozniacki. Her aim is Henin.

Sabalenka doing herself absolutely no favours if she’s trying to get some cheers her way. Opposite effect really.

OK, did not love Fernandez' mid-game racket change. Gamesmanship or broken string?

Edit: ah, seems like the vibration damper came loose

You know, fair enough, you don't love the hype. I'm still thinking what's not to love, youngster with a mean game and a never say die attitude, who seems to be enjoying the sport. I say give me more of that!
Yep, that's my attitude as well. Real tennis fans don't care about anything except good tennis matches! That's what we want to see!

I am finding myself wanting Aryna to win. Not that I would be unhappy if Leylah won, just my heart is leaning towards Aryna. IDK why.

So smart but hits the swing volley right back to Sabalenka ;)

Let's go Amazon warrior!
Had Sabalenka ran the other way, that would’d been a genius move. Is call catching behind a player’s back. It didn’t pay off this time, that is just tennis.

Why do people say "I don't know why, ...." I'm sure you could figure it out.

To summarize and end the debate: I don't like overhyping, I don't like fairytale histories, I prefer more like constant progress, kinda how Domi and Halep were before winning their first majors, and everybody is entitled to their opinion.

So you know, I know we ended the debate, but please note that you say that you find Fernandez' attitude disgusting, because OTHER people overhype her. That seems a little unfair!
