    Garbine takes the first set 6-3, and Serena appears to be hurt. Has called the trainer.

    Serena retires at 3-6, 0-1. Hate that, hope she’s ok. Doesn’t look right at all.

    Super easy win for Andreescu. Gets Wang Quiang next in a section that has opened up with no Serena and a quarter with no Sloane.

    Can anyone break down this current spat over Kermode for me? I just finished watching Federer’s interview on Tennis Channel where he said Rafa came to his house yesterday and they had “a long talk” about what’s been happening with the Council and what needs to be done going forward about growing the game among other things.

    Thought that was a good interview from Roger. Glad he’s going to get more involved.

    As for an explainer, here’s a good breakdown.

    Dude has had two of those hip surgeries where they shaved the bone down because they were tearing his hip labrums. One on each hip. Unreal he’s back playing at this level.

    I was posting and trying to draw a comparison to the majors but I couldn't come up with that. Just the wet fart line but I'll stick with that. I also was thinking Nick but I couldn't do that to him.

    FAA takes the first set 7-6. Nishioka frustrating him a bit tactically though.

    Collins continually impresses me. I’m not a USA boner guy and could care less about nationality in general. Just trying to say her being American is more of a knock in my mind, than something that makes me enjoy a match.

    This is tough to watch. FAA broken in 5 of his last 6 service games, just has completely lost it.

    She's got a real edge to her personality and to her game. Rubs some folks the wrong way, but I really like her too.

    You nailed it. Didn’t realize why I liked her but she’s a definite psycho from a personality perspective. Love it.
