At this point Sakkari should be her over "it's my US open to win" (based on seeding, experience) pressure/tension and completely realize that it's now Radacanu's match to lose.

it's nice to know that perhaps two teens will play in the final and both are non-screamers and look pleasing to the eye as well. When was the last time that happened?

Hard to play a worse set of tennis than Sakkari just did.

Weirdly I still feel the match is far from over. Sakkari can’t play that poorly again and if she goes up an early break, Raducanu’s level and confidence may drop.

Tasty breadstick from Emma against Chokkari, now I want three more bakery products, one more for today and two for Saturday final.

“Parity in the womens’ game” isn’t necessarily a plus. Isn’t it sad that the “top players” have little variety, make tons of UEs, and can’t beat teenage qualifiers?
Very sad and shows the lack of quality in WTA these days

Radacanu seems to like Sakkari's ball. I think she should slice more - give herself more time to get back in position and make Radacanu scrape some shots up from low on the court.

Or maybe she really doesn't need to change tactics, but simply execute at a decent level, which she failed to do in the first set.
