    This has been a WTA match so far. No one can serve consistently.

    IF Bibi goes through Bertens, Pliskova, svitolina and then between Halep, Osaka, Serena. I’m going to be uncontrollable

    If you like power tennis, Osaka-Swiatek on TC now is really fun.

    The first time I watched that, I did not realize Puig and Derek Dietrich were dating and got very confused.

    I don’t have any words to say.

    Yesterday she gave the #5 player in the world a breadstick.

    Today she gives the #3 player in the world a bagel

    Okay I’m going to say something really stupid and bias.

    If Bibi wins this tournament is she the best female tennis player in the world right now?

    I think halep is, so if she beats Halep in this tournament I would seriously consider it. Has to do it consistently though, she's just coming back

    Still a long way in this match to go. But if she wins she’d be 6-0 this year against the Top 10

    Bibi does this so often. Dominates set 1. Loses focus in 2nd and when you think she’s got no chance, she wins the 3rd

    It sounds weird to say, but she’d be better off if she was a little worse player right now. She’s going deep in every tournament she manages to play. So much wear and tear in a short period of time. Too good.

    so proud of this girl, she is the anti Bouchard.

    What sucks is that the buzz is not as big as it was with Bouchard, such a shame.
