I think this is end of the road for darling Halep.
She doesn't like playing Lucic-Baroni. Well, Sabalenka is another Lucic. Bam Bam Bam on every shot. lol lol

@ Ace2Ace:
 At least she got far enough to stop Wozniacki from becoming #1 next week.

@ Ace2Ace:
 
Watched some of her match with Dovinic who she dominated....very aggressive, comes forward a lot, can volley and is powerful from the baseline. lst time seeing her and came away impressed.

Would like to see her matchup with Simona, but her match is scheduled for 1 a.m. here in the Midwest. Thus, I won't see it...

@ Graveller:
 Yeah.. I was glad to see that in the LIVE Ranking. Halep remains #1 for another week. There was so much speculation going into this week. Halep, Muguruza and Wozz.
Guess who is still standing?
Won't last long but if she can keep it until Aussie Open, that's fine with her fans.

@ rex:
 So you didn't see her miss Sharapova in Wuhan?
It was bam bam bam.
Pova escaped thanks to a few bad errors at the wrong time. Smile

@ Ace2Ace:
 
I usually don't watch 'Pova matches, unless she's playing a fave. So, I wouldn't have seen her matchup in Wuhan.

Sabalenka is on my radar now (love that aggression, baseline power, following up to the net of deep balls and the dictation) and will look out for her matches in the near future. But, I've got to see more of her to get a good sense of where her game is. Yet, the Belarussian has a lot to offer at age 19 from what I just witnessed.

@ Ace2Ace:
 
Thanks for the highlights, Ace. In addition to the HL's with Sloane, just caught HL's of her match with 'Pova at Tianjin (they didn't meet in Wuhan). Impressive...... Again, she's very determined and aggressive (no let up in her game like Ostapenko), presses the matter often by coming forward, nice hands around the net and can finish from either side from the baseline. She's 6'0 tall with a nice serve and moves well. In both of her matches with Sloane and Pova one can see the determination and aggression, the power from either side and net play. Looks like she'll make a statement this year. Got to see her, tho', in a match and look at her overall game and match stats to determine whether there's high ufe counts, winners and # of aces, so I'll have firm idea of what and where her game is. Nevertheless, as stated, she's on my radar and a nice rep for Belarus with Vika.

Looking forward to tomorrow's SF between Siniakova and Sharapova...

Did not see too much of Siniakova's win vs the lesser Pliskova, but the way she served it out (4 winning serves in a row... sometimes 1st serve, sometimes 2nd) was clinical Smile

Maria better be prepared... I go with Siniakova in the PGame....

I expected Sabalenka to show up as another Lucic-Baroni. But rather Camilia Giorgi is the one she impersonated. Nice job Halep ... Go get that title.

And picking Siniakova was the wise thing to do... Maria OUT!!!

Great serving from Siniakova, except that game in the second set where she faced 5 or 6 Bps... lost the serve and lost the set because of it.

Had MPs on Maria's serve in the third at 5-2, but finally took it on MP#4 on own serve. Serving out was not straightforward as the nerves got hold of her.

Final is Halep vs Siniakova... a deserved winner whatever happens Smile
