All General Discussion concerning WTA and ATP
Anti-climatic 3rd set here, but it's just experience for this young talent. Next event is IW? Don't know how many events she has left for her 15th year of birth...
Re Kenin, she's indeed a disciplined player, never "wild". Doesn't beat herself with recklessness, nor is she error-prone in the least. A top-15 talent for sure...
Naomi has already whipped her......twice.
However, looking at their header they've split 4 matches. Naomi beat her at this year's Brisbane in 3, Naomi retired in their match at Cincy last year in the 3rd with a stomach issue, dismissed her at the '18 French in 2 and Sofia beat her at an ITF event in 2014 when she was 17. ....
Jabeur beat Q.Wang, the lady that took out Serena. Didn't watch this match but the result is pretty surprising. 6-1 in the 2nd set looks too easy.
Great opportunity for her against Kenin.
But I think Kenin will prevail. Her simple game is not that exciting for me but it's efficient.
Qiang losing was no surprise. She played way above herself against Serena. She's now back down to earth though that 'win' over Serena was satisfying on many fronts, not least of which is quieting those Chinese fans who savaged her after her loss to Ree last year at the USO.
