Cornet serves for the match vs Goerges and delivers with a love-game.
6-4 6-3.

I have not seen too many matches from Goerges lately; I quite liked her a few years ago - especially on clay - but there was something lacking that stopped me from believing that she could become a true top player.

Today confirmed that opinion. I simply cannot believe that Goerges got to #12. I guess this match was not representative for Julia's recent form. Nevertheless....

So the 3rd quarter gets more and more 'open'...

3rd quarter:
Kumkhum, Martic, Cornet or Mertens/Gavrilova will meet Allertova/Linette/Kostyuk/Svitolina for a spot in a slam SF...

We need an Ostapenko/Wozniacki QF in the 4th quarter to "save" the bottom section.

Just watched the decisive TB in set 3 between Kyrgios and Troicki.

The Australian audience went wild, and rightfully so: this TB is a must-watch for every tennis fan. Nick demonstrating in the timespan of a single TB that he masters every shot in the game: dropshot, slice, ace, CC, shots DTL. And he delivered effortless.

I have not ever seen a similar impressive display by Zverev or Thiem... or even Pouille...
You may not like his temper, but the talent is undeniable.

Julia always has a big , powerful game. Her problem has been, like with so many players, consistency. I thought she's solved that problem the last 12 months.
Losing to girls like Wozniacki and Cornet should not be happening again... Ugly result today.

Respect. Caro pulled off a feat only Serena's has (if memory serves) at the AO, and that was back in 2003, which is to comeback from being down 1-5, 15-40 in the 3rd to win the set 7-5. Kudos. She might not have power shots, but she's clearly mentally strong with a desire to win.

Now that my Vee is out (why Vee, why????), I'm rooting for Caro all the way.

At almost 2 am, Mertens defeats Gavrilova in two... entertaining match, but stressful to watch: Mertens was down 0-5 in the first set but then won 7 games in a row (and the set 7-5).

If anything, Tsonga might compare last night against Shapovalov who Sloanie is thirsty for.

I saw this one coming, after watching Mertens prior match. Congratulation!!!!!
