So the predicted graveyard has become reality. Serena out, Osaka out...
The "loaded 2nd quarter" will now deliver a first-time SF... the next player who will end up with an artifically inflated ranking.

And Osaka has left the top8. It looks like a final for Barty or Kvitova imo.

ps: Gauff is having a great future ahead of her.

The Rod Laver Graveyard may not be over yet... Millman with a good start vs Federer: 4-1 up in Set 1.

Sickened by Ree's loss.
Was this her 7th match this year? It could still be psychological as the 7th match is a GS final.

Anyway, I didn't sleep a wink afterwards. Just disgusted, sick of these losses.

I slept like a rock, then remembered when I awoke :(

Thank goodness it was a beautiful morning in the NE, and my eldest niece's birthday (DJ has numerous mechanisms to get through hard times)!! I can't believe she's 43!!

Hey Grav,

I guess that was their plan, and why we were concerned & complained!!

Not a good feeling ~ Hard to warm up to Coco!!
