    Believe the only injury punishment is if you come into the tourney injured, still play in the first round and have to retire. They'll take some money away. But other than that, no.

    Serena rolls, gets Riske tomorrow. The quarter of death has not been very deadly.

    Any chance Konta beats Kvitova? Looking at past H2H Kvitova has mostly dominated.

    Definitely a chance. Petra hasn't played much coming in due to an arm injury, and Konta's been on good form for a while now. Will be tough though since Petra's so good on grass.

    Usually isnt. This "brutal draw" for rafa has turned out to be patty cake

    Coco needs to get to the net with some more confidence. She keeps letting Halep get easy looks at passing shots. Hoping she can grab a break and get something cooking.

    Coco is clearly frustrated but she's 15. Her life was probably ruined when Justin Bieber got married and then when her parents took her phone.

    You keep complaining about who Rafa has played but you haven't said a word about the Fed draw which has been a joke. At least Rafa had to beat a motivated Kyrgios while Federer has played all scrubs.

    its kind of a joke at this point (My posts about it) lol. They both have had very easy runs, along with novak

    Yeah Coco looking defeated. Wonder if she has an Ab strain or something. Hard to play with that kind of injury. Not working the points nearly as well as she has been. Either way, this run should go a long way in making her a staple on the women's side I hope.

    I honestly dont know who's future I'd rather have....

    Anisimova or Coco

    And a week ago that would of been an outlandish question.

    Coco comes from some very athletic parents. Have to think her ceiling is insane.

    Do you think she has the mentality to win a major? She just doesnt seem that strong in the head. Cause she certainly has the game

    I’ve seen nothing to think she does, but she’s also tough to read. Very stoic, etc. So maybe she does, but we haven’t seen it to this point.

    Very few of these girls are tough mentally and thats why so many go from the top of the game to unranked within a few months.

    To be honest I question the mental toughness of most of the young men players as well. As great as the top 3 guys are someone should have emerged as a consistent challenger to them in the majors.

    It’s really unreal that basically no one can even flirt with them. Thiem is probably the closest but he seems to be a no show outside of clay.
