    Bencic and Halep going to a 3rd set. Really fun 2nd set that Bencic pulled out in a TB.

    Yikes. Halep serves up a 3rd set bagel to beat Bencic. Gets the winner of Sloane and Kiki Bertens in the final.

    Thiem-Federer time on TC.

    Halep has to be favourite for the French, yeah? I mean it's still very wide open but she's looking super comfy on the clay.

    I hope it's a contest, but I've got a bad feeling about this one considering Thiem's my tip for RG (yeah, hardly going out on a limb, I know).

    Thiem takes an insanely good 2nd set TB, and we’re going 3.

    Here's what we've got today. Fun OOP.

    10:10 AM: Djokovic-Thiem

    ~12:30 PM Halep - Bertens (Women's Final, Halep is the world #1 with a win)

    ~3PM Nadal - Tsitsipas.

    Just so impressive by Kiki - slow & steady and before you realise, she's top 5. Has to be a massive chance at the French.

    While I agree with you, I think it's impossible to pick the final for the girls - there's just too many possibilities. This is just the most exciting time for women's tennis I can remember.

    This guy just looks like the real deal to me. It surely has to be either him or Thiem that breaks the oldies embargo and wins a slam, doesn't it?

    Hard to argue that. As nice and deep as the women’s side looks the men are equally as bad.

    Random thought, I think Pietrangeli is one of my favorite courts, almost anywhere. Would love to see it some day.

    It took 9(!) match points, but Venus Williams finally gets through Mertens. Venus-Serena in R2, winner gets Sloane or Konta.

    I don't see any way Serena doesn't win that match - I don't think Venus can go with her these days.

    So, considering how bad my tipping is, Venus will probably win... :laugh:

    Been really impressed by Fritz's clay court season, had a nice win over Pella, one of the real risers of the clay season, this morning.

    This is the best Kyrgios has looked, both fitness and form wise, in quite a while. Quality W over Medvedev.

    Not even going to make a joke about Rome being the xxth major. Maybe Zverev just ain't that damn good...
