Nothing really worked for Ree today. Nothing was really 'on.' Plus she seemed indecisive at times.

For her to title here, the field will have to under perform.

Happy she's playing dubs because she sure needs the practice.

What are you talking about????
Didn't you see Serena adjust to Barty's slices, get down low to flip them back?
In the first set, she couldn't touch Barty. Everything Barty touched turned gold: the serve, the return, the slices.
Serena had to raise her level, figure out Barty's game and beat her in the rallies. In tennis, if you can't adjust, you are toast.

Again, Serena was superb overall. She found the solution to her problem without talking to her coach.

As I said before, only Muguruza has the game to challenge her here.  The rest will put up a great fight, like Pliskova and Barty, but it won't be enough.

Worked from home today so I can watch this match LIVE: No regret.
Awesome Serena soldiers on!!!

I expect her to beat Gorges but Pliskova Sr. or Maria?

Sharapova's been broken multiple times by anyone. How many times is she going to lose serve against Serena? And how many times is she going to break the Queen of Wakanda's serve?
Once you have the answers to these questions, you know the result of that encounter.
Not even sure Pova can beat Ka.Pliskova.

I think Barty outlined the blueprint above for toppling Ree. Which player will execute for 2 sets, that's the question.

That blueprint is not new. They all know.
It's one thing to talk about it; it's another to execute it.

And by the way, while they are pouring over their blueprint, Serena is going over hers to.. Smile

Still effective. Ree was out of sorts in the first.

Sorry to disagree. Serena was ON.
How did she solve the Barty slice challenge if she was not ON?
After she went down 0-1 in the second set, watch the next game. That game 1 alone shows all the adjustment she made off the ground. Watch how she gets down low to pick up Barty's deadly slices. If she was not on, she would have been defeated because she won't have had the energy and the mind to adjust mid match.

I love what she did.
The lady is a legend!!!

French Open: Serena Williams says she can be better than before pregnancy break


"I'm probably not where I was before I left," said the 23-time major winner.

I felt like in the first set I didn't play bad - I just didn't make any shots

Williams added: "I felt like in the first set I didn't play bad. I just didn't make any shots. So I guess it is bad. But I had all the right ideas, like coming to the net and hitting all my shots. They just weren't going in.

"For me, that was kind of like a positive thing, because it wasn't like I was playing the ultimate match. I was just making so many errors.

"I thought I've got to cut down on the errors, and I've just got to come out here and fight. And that's what I did."
