Can Zhang hold her serves and nerves and oust Pliskova?

If Zhang loses this match, she'll never get over it.

Kasatkina gets broken twice at the start of set#1; Ostapenko leading 3-0.

Six games later, Kasatkina wins the first set 6-3... a virtual bagel...

You are doing great in the Skan.
Was busy since checking the matches when they started. I saw Pliskova save match point and win the second.. She almost finished off my Skan... Smile
Then I had to log off. Missed the 3rd set.

Congrat Kasat and Coco .. Will find the Replays on ESPN360.
Always said Kasat can be dangerous if she stops waiting at the baseline and plays power tennis.. Same as Sloane. Nice Job.

Rafa is worrying. He's just not playing well.

Monfils is out with injury. I think it's psychological. I'm ready to believe he sabotages himself whenever a chance to prove himself surfaces. He had a shot at this GS.

@ Ace2Ace:
 
Kasatkina has the same approach as Serena: using the right tactics against any player; against Ostapenko, the so-called "pushing" game works best, so that is what she does. Against others, she plays differently.

Ps: what others define as pushing, is decent baseline game in my book. Pushing is simply returning the ball and not making it hard for the opponent. But Daria's returns are rarely easy.

Missed the last half of the 2nd set of the Naomi match with Kai and all of the 3rd. Understand that Naomi was up 4-2 in the 3rd and couldn't hold. Will learn.....
Good on Kai, tho'.....hope she goes far here and nice to have her back on the Tour after being away for 2 years.....

Re Naomi, watched her doubles' match with Schi'. She was out of her league and in need of a coach that can teach her how to play up at the net, react and execute. She didn't have a clue and it was telling. Yet, she owned up to such on twitter by thanking the crowd (packed) that came out to watch the match, but apologized for the mess she made.

Wouldn't expect she and Schi' to hook up for dubs, but what I am hoping here in that match-up is that since Schi' is retiring after this year and she desires to coach, am hoping she wants to coach Naomi. Schi's all-court talent, instincts and techniques could greatly help Naomi develop and become proficient with a net game and approach, a needed expansion and addition to her already solid baseline game with serve. Once she adds those elements to her game, she'll be a perennial top-10er and a threat. Would like a coaching change in the off-season and see where this goes, for I do not like D. Taylor as her coach.
